Centralizing Kubernetes in Highly Restrictive Environments
While developers see and realize the benefits of Kubernetes, how it improves efficiencies, saves time, and enables focus on the unique business requirements of each project; InfoSec, infrastructure, and software operations teams still face challenges when managing a new set of tools and technologies, and integrating them into an existing enterprise infrastructure.
This is especially true for environments where security and governance requirements are so strict as to come into conflict with the cloud-native reference architectures.
During his presentation, Oleg will outline a plan that leverages open source cloud-native technologies while meeting enterprise security and governance requirements. He’ll summarize common prerequisites for running Kubernetes in production, and how to leverage fine-grained controls and separation of responsibilities to meet enterprise governance and security needs; what’s needed for a general architecture of a centralized Kubernetes operations layer based on open source components such as Prometheus, Grafana, ELK Stack, Keycloak, etc.
The presentation will cover basic requirements for audit, security, authentication, authorization, integration with existing identity management, 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, 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.
