PANTHEON.tech @ KubeCon & CloudNative Con 2019

Barcelona is a wonderful city and home of several important conferences, which PANTHOEN.tech attended in the past. Rastislav Szabó & Tomáš Jančiga returned to Barcelona this year, to attend KubeCon & CloudNative Con.

With over 7700 participants, KubeCon was a massive event with lots of promising presentations. “KubeCon confirmed, that IT is moving towards cloud-native principles at high-speed”, according to Rastislav Szabó, who also held a presentation named “Network Observability with IPFIX, Prometheus and Elastic Stack“.

You can check out most of the presentations in the official KubeCon 2019 Presentation Playlist here. Many interesting topics were discussed, including CNF (Cloud Native Network Functions), Kubernetes usage & future, 5G and many more. “It is unbelievable, how many presentations we managed to go through. Each of them was a great experience – we caught up with several new trends and expanded our ideas for the future”.

There were a lot of co-located events around KubeCon, which Rastislav and Tomáš could not have missed. “We were interested, as to how the tel-co industry sees these changes towards cloud-native principles. The co-located events were a perfect platform to answer our questions.” This also allowed our delegates to talk to a lot of people and to find out, how they perceive these shifts in IT.

“At the Cloud Native Network Services Day hosted by LFN, several notable presentations fulfilled our expectations. Vodafone and their take on Cloud-Native, Mellanox presented a vision of “Accelerating Container Networking”. Others, like Orange, Ericsson & Juniper also held their own presentations which we enjoyed”, according to Tomáš & Rastislav.

As a fan of FD.io, Rastislav had to take part in the FD.io Mini Summit, which took place at the same time as KubeCon.

Another important session was the “Intro + Deep Dive BoF: Telecom User Group“, where a user-group, mailing list & GitHub repository for future collaboration were presented. The main message was, that tel-co is eager to step into the cloud-native world – but to get there, there are a lot of challenges and obstacles to overcome

We are sure, that here at PANTHEON.tech we would be more than happy to welcome new customers and present our idea of how this can be achieved.

“It was a wonderful experience and we are really looking forward to the next KubeCon & CloudNativeCon!”
