Over 7,000 people attended KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2022 which took place in Valencia Spain from May 16-20. From developers, executives, product managers, and marketers, the event consisted of some great workshops and keynotes allowing attendees to engage with the community and collaborate.

Learn more about our experience at the event, what we brought with us to showcase, and the talks by our team!

KubeCon region

One of the highlights for our booth was the KubeCon region that we setup where folks could spin up their clusters and see it all in action live at the event premises. It consisted of 512 cores, 2 TBs of RAM, and 14 TBs of NVMe storage.


Polar Signals

Learn how Polar Signals is optimising the performance of the cloud using Civo for their testing environment at KubeCon EU with Parca, open-source continuous profiling storage, query engine, and an eBPF based profiler.

Does Green Software need Open Hardware? Hosted by Open Compute Project

By 2040, the communications technology sector is expected to account for 14% of the world’s carbon footprint. In 2019, researchers at the University of Cambridge estimated that the energy needed to maintain the Bitcoin network surpassed that of the entire nation of Switzerland. Clearly, this cannot continue and software needs to be evaluated by judging its performance on its energy efficiency as much as on traditional parameters. On top of this, the IT infrastructure and data center facilities can make a huge difference on the ecological impact of software workloads.

This panel looks at best practices and new technology directions that can change the current and dangerous ecological impact curve implied by the digitization of society.

To IPv6 - The Dual-stack Adoption Advisory Panel

As we all know, we’re running out of IPv4 addresses. Kubernetes introduced the current implementation of dual-stack networking (supporting both IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time) in v1.20, and the dual-stack feature graduated to stable in v1.23. While the world has been slow to adopt IPv6, it is happening. For this reason, it’s time to learn about using dual-stack to start your own move away from IPv4, supported by changes in Kubernetes components such as pods and services.

Watch the discussion as SIG Network members and Kubernetes contributors dive into the technical details underlying the move to dual-stack networking, and leave with recommendations to shape your IPv4/IPv6 rollout strategy.

Navigating the CNCF Landscape, the Right Way

CNCF is the vendor-neutral home for cloud-native projects. Including the most famous open source project in recent times, Kubernetes, it currently houses ~1,019 cards with a total of 2,957,938 stars. With a growing ecosystem, at an initial glance, the landscape may seem intimidating to newcomers, especially students.

Journeying through the entire development and operations lifecycle, this panel covers the various projects involved right from the creation of the application to the deployment & monitoring. The speakers also leave the audience with ideas of how to navigate the landscape effectively and embark on their own cloud-native journey.

Cloud Native Chaos Engineering with LitmusChaos

The discipline of chaos engineering has evolved since it was introduced by Netflix a decade ago, mostly due to the cloud-native paradigm and the proliferation of Kubernetes as the universal control plane for today's distributed architecture.

LitmusChaos is a framework that has been designed to address the way it is operationalized, such as the faults themselves, the environments where they are executed, the persona carrying out the experiments, as well as the methods to run them. This enables users to identify weaknesses and improve resilience in their cloud-native setup proactively.

In this panel, Saiyam Pathak, director at Civo, along with Umasankar Mukkara, Karthik S, and Udit Gaurav provided a deep-dive of the project, its goals, and how it achieves them.

Until next time!
