Key Takeaways

1A comprehensive introduction to the deployment aspect of Cloud Native Computing

2Learn about Serverless computing and several popular tools and frameworks that are available in the market today

3Hands-on experience and opportunities to “kick the tires” of a real OpenShift cluster (primarily using Java starter sample apps, but we will also have other languages-based starter sample apps)

4Understand some key deployment challenges of Cloud Native computing

Cloud Native has become the talk of the town in the Cloud Computing space in recent years.  Depending on who you ask, you may get different answers from different people about what Cloud Native Computing is. Cloud Native computing is an overarching approach to develop, build, and deploy enterprise workloads and applications in the Cloud, utilizing the plethora of Open Source technologies and the proven delivery model of the Cloud. 

This workshop focuses on the deployment aspect of containerized microservices, and how the serverless approach has greatly enhanced the operational efficiency, service availability, workload scalability,  as well as cost effectiveness of running enterprise applications in the Cloud.

We will do a quick study on several popular serverless tools, libraries/frameworks in the market, and get some hands-on experience with some of them, which include:

  • Knative serving on Kubernetes/Red Hat OpenShift
  • Open Liberty Operator on Red Hat OpenShift
  • IBM Code Engine (*A powerful new tool which promises to relieve the busy developers from operational burdens)
