Sid is a software engineer at red hat focused on the ecosystem experience around consuming and providing services in Kubernetes based platforms. He currently works with partners and vendors to develop Kubernetes native extensions by leveraging the operator pattern. Previously, Sid has worked at Ericsson where he was involved in transitioning legacy applications to the cloud by leveraging Kubernetes. He also worked on CloudStack, an open source system that can be used to provide infrastructure as a service and has previously presented a talk at ApacheCon 2019. Sid is interested in using the operator pattern to enable networking, storage and security aspects of the Cloud computing that you typically don’t get out of the box.
From Zero to Auto Pilot: Exploring Kubernetes Operator Capability Levels
Kubernetes Operators are more popular than ever, but not all operators are created equal. How do we maximize the value that Operators have promised IT teams and ensure that they can deliver a true "as-a-service" experience? We will present a step-by-step guide on how to raise your Operator's capability level to ensure it can live up to its potential. Participants will be presented with a basic Operator and learn real-world strategies on how to add capabilities including seamless upgrades, offsite backups, rollbacks, and deep insights via metrics, logging, and events as well as intelligent autoscaling.
