Lightning Talks

CICD platform on Kubernetes (Vinod Suresh, Expert Infrastructure Engineer)

Kubernetes offers availability and scalability during deployments. Coupled with elastic cloud infrastructure, it would be a slam dunk decision for a scalable CICD platform. Is it actually? Vinod will cover some of the gotchas and solutions based on practical experience of running such a platform. You don't want to miss this talk.

Building "Always-on" Systems with Kubernetes (Ehfaj Khan, Expert Application Engineer & Ankur Bansal, Expert Application Engineer)

"Always-on" and "speed" are the keys to success in any financial industry. To achieve our business goals in a highly regulated environment where real-time processing and low latency response are the core ingredients of our architecture, cloud-native services and containers are the backbone of our application modernization strategy.

In this talk, Ehfaj and Ankur will share their experience of how containerization and messaging operators helped us perform credit card acquisitions in real-time and simplify our complex business processing in our cloud-native modernization journey. They will also cover the K8s configuration for high availability and security.
