Simplifying Cloud Native Application Delivery with Open Application Model (OAM) and KubeVela
Divine Odazie

The containerization of applications and the declarative nature of Kubernetes has greatly reduced difficulties in deploying, managing and scaling complex applications. However, when you deploy more workloads and related resources in a cluster, you spend more time managing infrastructure setups like ingress, DNS, etc., than building.

To solve this problem, the journey of defining “applications” rather than “containers” started — the birth of the Open Application Model (OAM) and its implementation KubeVela.

Divine will start this talk by introducing OAM and how it makes abstractions to the architecture of applications with the concept of Component and Trait. After that, Divine will discuss KubeVela, and how it achieves application modelling in Kubernetes.

Towards the end, Divine will share a list of organizations using KubeVela in production, testing, and its roadmap.
