Who is Verizon?
Verizon delivers the promise of the digital world by enhancing the ability of humans, businesses and society to do more new and do more good. We call it humanability. We constantly strive to improve the way we work.
About the Day
We at Verizon have leveraged Docker and Kubernetes to help support our public cloud migration goals and set the stage for digital transformation acceleration.
We will be sharing the Verizon journey on adopting Kubernetes, and the challenges we had to solve for that are unique to large organizations. We will also be sharing the challenges we ran into adopting and enabling the platform at scale. Our discussion will revolve around:
  • Capabilities – Solving for the Kubernetes platform services like single sign-on, RBAC for the enterprise
  • Migration – Retrofitting existing apps to run in Kubernetes
  • Compliance – Meeting compliance requirements around software and hardware inventory, separation of duty concerns
  • Security – Implementing an enterprise grade security solution through all facets of software development life cycle
  • Value Proposition – Rallying everyone (Developers, Security Engineers, Operations Engineers & Management) in the organization to support this initiative and getting past resistance
Our aspiration is to build a community for enterprises by enterprises that focuses on solving for requirements / challenges that are unique to the enterprise organization. We want to share our best practices and lessons learned through our own experience.
Join our passionate engineers for a deep dive on the technical and cultural foundations needed to deploy and leverage the benefits of this game changing technology.The session will be broken down into four segments:
1. Foundational Challenges We Solved For
  • Preparing for Adoption at Scale – From aspiration to executable strategy
    • Value proposition for the organization and why we chose a multi- tenant model & how to sell the organization on this model
  • Platform Architecture
    • MVP1 architecture, CI/CD approach, secrets management, private Docker registry, leveraging Docker Hub images & addressing vulnerabilities
  • Supporting Multi Tenancy – 7 portfolios and 10k developers
    • Corporate LDAP integration – (KubeCtl plugin, Auth-API), Namespace Management & Automated provisioning controller, Helm/Tiller architecture
2. Advanced Challenges We Solved For
  • Automation – Cluster Deployment Automation
    • Installer(KOPS / KubeAdm) tradeoff, and our experience with building our own
  • Logging – Solving for inconsistent log aggregation
    • Finding an extensible solution to balance between disparate existing legacy logging solutions and a scalable architecture without operational overhead
  • Security – Achieving CIS benchmark compliance
    • Solving for cloud native security posture for legacy monolithic applications
  • Operator Framework / Persistent Volumes / Session Affinity
    • Where we leveraged and how we solved for it
  • Embracing Google SRE
    • What worked for us and what is difficult to achieve
3. Metrics, Workload Migration, Training & Developer Environment
  • Measuring Benefits
    • Defining what to measure is comparatively easy, but how do you consistently measure across hundreds of workloads and how can a platform like Kubernetes contribute to achieving the measurement?
  • Workload Migration – planning and approach for large scale migration
    • What type of legacy workloads (including stateful) were we able to migrate
  • Training
    • Technology training is helpful, but enterprise environment and training labs are not the same. How do you bridge the gap, we will share our approach / playbook
  • Developer Environment
    • Leveraging Docker for Developer environment setup and eliminating frictions in cross team developer migration and application setup
4. Building a Community for Enterprise, by Enterprise
  • Collaboration Topics & Open Source Projects
Refreshments and Lunch will be Served
