Isolation in Kubernetes | @DevOpsSummit #CloudNative #Serverless #DevOps #Docker #Kubernetes

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Advanced Network Scheduling and Isolation in Kubernetes Using a Containerized Telco Solution Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

IoT Personalization by @KevLindsay | @ExpoDX @Adobe @AdobeTarget @24Notion #IoT #IIoT #SmartCities #DigitalTransformation

Download Slide Deck ▸ Here Download Slide Deck ▸ Here Personalization in the Age of IoT More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables - activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what "IoT" means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. Download Slide Deck ▸ Here We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart's sake," and many brands remain in that corner. But many brands are also gradually opting for more strategic approaches.

DevOps vs the Enterprise | @DevOpsSummit @ScriptRock #AI #DevOps

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in the tech community's elite. Open source projects and methodologies driven by the alumni of companies like Netflix, Google and Amazon. This is a great thing for the evolution of DevOps. It can be alienating for Enterprise IT though. Learning about Netflix and their simian armies, or Facebook and their mind-melting scale is fascinating. Can you take... (more)
