Installing Kubernetes is easy. Ensuring it complies with your organization’s enterprise governance and security requirements isn’t.

During this session, Oleg will outline common prerequisites for running Kubernetes in production. He’ll discuss how to leverage fine-grained controls and separation of responsibilities to meet enterprise governance and security needs, as well as basic requirements for audit, security, authentication, authorization, integration with existing identity broker, logging, and monitoring. Additionally, the audience will learn whether cloud-hosted Kubernetes cover these requirements, how to integrate a compliant Kubernetes installation with their existing cloud infrastructure and how to handle cross-team communication (network / compute / storage / security).

Since on-premise Kubernetes deployments don’t come without challenges, we’ll look into the limitations of a bare-metal installation, interactions with vSphere’s API, achieving HA, reliability and disaster recovery, as well as handling OS upgrades, security patches, and Kubernetes upgrades. We’ll close with a quick outlook of what’s next, such as infrastructure as a code, immutable infrastructure, and GitOps.
