Are you as excited as we are? Six more sleeps until we pack our bags and head out to Austin for what promises to be an exciting KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 starting on December 6th. Our Navops team is chomping at the bit to reconnect with friends, and take another drink from the Kubernetes container firehose.
This year Univa has a larger presence at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon with a booth, two speaking slots, and multiple team members in attendance. We’re keen to collaborate, share ideas, and discuss new developments in the Kubernetes ecosystem.
Here are a few great ways we can connect:
Title: Running mixed workloads at the IHME
Speakers: Dr. Tyrone Grandison, IHME and Rob Lalonde, Univa
When: Thursday, December 7th, 11:55am, 2017
Title: Running Mesos Frameworks on Kubernetes with the Open-Source URB
Speaker: Fritz Ferstl, CTO Univa
When: Friday, December 8th, 2:45 pm, 2017
We’ve been busy as beavers in 2017 bringing to new capabilities to Kubernetes including mixed workloads, workflow support, and the Universal Resource Broker (URB), an open-source project that enables Mesos workloads to run seamlessly on your choice of Kubernetes distribution. We’ve done all this while also doubling down on building superior workload and resource management for Kubernetes.For those interested in learning more, here are a few more details about what we’ll share at the show:
While many embrace containers and micro-services for new workloads, almost everyone has sunk investments in traditional applications. Supporting mixed container and non-container workloads efficiently on the right platforms, avoiding siloed infrastructures, and maintaining service levels is the IT challenge of the day. Dr. Tyrone Grandison from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington will discuss how IHME are meeting this challenge head-on with a shared Kubernetes environment able to support containerized workloads as well as traditional non-container applications with advanced resource sharing and workload management. You can learn more about IHME’s innovative solution and Dr. Grandison’s talk here.
Back in September, Univa was pleased to announce our contribution of the Universal Resource Broker technology to the Kubernetes community. The freely available URB software allows any Mesos compatible framework (including Spark, Hadoop, Storm, Jenkins, Marathon, and Chronos) to run along-side native Kubernetes services on a shared Kubernetes cluster providing the opportunity simplify environments and consolidate infrastructure. In his talk on Friday, Fritz Ferstl, Univa’s CTO, will explain how URB facilitates running existing Mesos frameworks to run seamlessly on Kubernetes and provide a demonstration of the technology. Fritz is widely regarded as the father of Grid Engine software and its forerunners Codine and GRD. If you’re running or building Mesos applications considering a move to Kubernetes, you won’t want to miss Fritz’s talk.
Travel safe, and we hope to see you there!
