Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure

Cloud technology promises to be more resilient and adaptive while using compute resources more efficiently. Turning these promises into reality requires teams to adopt the right infrastructure and processes and quickly learn new skills as the industry changes. Join us as we explore topics in Cloud security, microservices management, container orchestration and Kubernetes management, distributed deployment and management strategies, and more.

Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure Summit Tracks

Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure

Cloud Infrastructure

Hosting cloud services – whether for your organization or on behalf of others – presents a unique set of challenges that differs from the data centers of the past. In this track, we’ll discuss the best practices for developing infrastructure to serve cloud native applications effectively, explore the options available to teams to optimize thier infrastructure, and identify key trends that will impact cloud native hosting in the near future.

Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure

Microservices Management

As the number of services deployed increases, the task of discovering, monitoring, and maintaining them grows more challenging. In this track, we’ll explore the best practices and related tooling to help teams manage their growing pool of microservices while keeping them performant, discoverable, and relevant to the needs of their users.

Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure

Containers & Kubernetes

Container deployment changed the way just about all networked applications are designed and deployed. Kubernetes makes it easier for teams to orchestrate the deployment, networking, and exposure of these services through a variety of code and configuration based interfaces. In this track, we’ll discuss the opportunities presented by following container deployment and orchestration best practices and learn from experts how they keep their applications, accessible, performant, and relevant to their users.

Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure

Cloud Security

Ubiquious network access means data and services may find their ways to places developers and security experts don’t expect. This requires a different approach to data, network, and application security that is tailored for the challenges presented by cloud native deployments. In this track, we’ll explore these approaches and learn best practices from the experts who have defined and implemented them while keeping an eye on solutions to the threats that loom on the horizon.

Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure

Hybrid & Multi-Cloud

The myriad of options available for deploying networked code – from serverless to microservices to monoliths – allows organizations to host each application and service in an enviromnent that best suits its use case while keeping everything in sync. In this track, we’ll explore how your data center and cloud applications can work together to provide maximum flexibility for your organization while exploring the options and best practices for cloud deployment across multiple providers for additional flexibility and resilience while keeping costs under control.

Cloud Architecture & Infrastructure

Deployment Strategies

As the cost of compute drops and its power continually improves while shrinking in size, more digital services and applications find themselves running in unique environments, increasing the complexity in managing the access and quality of this code. In this track, we’ll hear from experts in the field as they guide us through an exploration of different methods for deploying cloud native applications and their consequences.
