Keynote session

Network, Please Evolve: Chapter 3, Stretching Out

Cloud Native has become a synonym for scalable and reliable distributed applications. And a well-behaved, distributed system is synonymous with a highly-available, consumable, and composable Network.

Over the past two chapters of our evolutionary tale, we have discussed the need for the Network to evolve beyond the 35-year-old concepts that still define it to this day. And we have demonstrated, through a real-world database (Vitess) use case, the developmental and operational power and simplicity this new paradigm delivers.

In this new chapter, we will discuss how we can stretch these capabilities all the way into the enterprise, edge compute location, or a branch, and show how it eases the life of a developer building a new cloud native app.

Speaking sessions

Multicloud Vitess over Network Service Mesh

This talk will describe using Network Service Mesh to create a private L3 network between Kubernetes clusters in different cloud providers to seamlessly deploy multiple Vitess cells across them. We will describe a multicloud Vitess use case and walk through the deployment details, highlighting the networking requirements in the process. We will describe NSM’s inter-domain feature and multicloud capabilities and a network service, which fulfills the Vitess multicloud networking requirements by dynamically forming a common private L3 routing domain to interconnect specific workloads hosted in multiple clouds.

MLPerf Meets Kubernetes

Kubeflow is maturing as a cloud native Machine Learning (ML) platform that simplifies the journey of development, deployment, and management of ML on Kubernetes. As Kubeflow gets increasingly adopted, practitioners are looking beyond functions and starting to explore its performance and cost-efficiency in the real world. MLPerf is a state-of-the-art benchmark suite that aims to set an industry standard for end-to-end performance evaluation of ML systems with real-world workloads covering both training and inference phases of ML lifecycle. This talk will provide a brief overview about MLPerf, followed by detailed discussions about how MLPerf can be adapted to evaluate ML performance on Kubeflow and Kubernetes, as well as how the performance results can be leveraged to guide the future design and optimization of cloud native ML platforms based on Kubeflow and Kubernetes.
