Going serverless with Kubernetes ?

Sebastien Goasguen, Monday , February 6, 14:40 - 15:20 B.CON

We are still struggling with virtual machines and private cloud systems, yet containers have forced us to rethink everything. From how to package applications to the real isolation gained by VMs, questioning the very reason to use configuration management system and VMs. As we are barely starting this debate, here comes serverless, which further decomposes our applications and makes a case for nano-services at the function level. In this talk we will look at Kubernetes and how it can be used to run VMs and also how you can use it to build a serverless framework.
