Meet our Experts

Running Kubernetes at scale, meeting security and compliance requirements, and deploying Kubernetes clusters spanning on-premise or multiple public clouds can introduce an increasing amount of complexity. Request a meeting with our Founders or experts onsite to discover how to easily master all these challenges and drive your business forward!

Jump on the KubeTrain Party!

Details: March 18, 2024 at 7pm in Fitzroy Restaurant, Paris.

We are excited to attend the KubeTrain Party as sponsors and looking forward to meeting you there! Just before KubeCon + CloudNativeCon starts, it’s a great opportunity to get to know each other, network and get the most amazing Kubermatic SWAG!

    Will ARM be the new Mainstream in our Data Centers?

    Tobias Schneck, Principal Architect at Kubermatic
    04:00 PM CET at Cloud Native Rejekts

    As I have been working with my new Apple Mac M1 for over a year, I was wondering why ARM is not used more in regular application workload scenarios? ARM for desktop computing is really stable, seamless, reliable and for me a game changer - when will we recognize the same for our servers? Especially in times when energy and raw materials are expensive, we should also benefit from the efficiency of ARM technology in our Data Centers. So what's missing? We have Kubernetes on ARM, we have the main operating systems supporting ARM, we have a lot of application software and programming languages supporting ARM out of the box, why don't we use this potential in large scale? Join the talk to get more insights on the current state of the ecosystem, open source and cloud native landscape. Let's find out if it is possible to create out of the results a real future business case for ARM based revolution in our Data Centers.

    Building a Platform Engineering API Layer with kcp

    Marvin Beckers, Team Lead at Kubermatic

    11:05 AM CET at Platform Engineering Day

    Self-service is a central aspect of platform engineering, and platform engineering teams frequently build on top of Kubernetes to utilise its amazing API design. The kcp project has been accepted into the CNCF Sandbox in 2023 and extends Kubernetes API concepts beyond container orchestration. This talk will discuss how kcp supercharges platform engineering with a global control plane for all internal services. As a central API layer, kcp enables a SaaS-like experience between internal service providers and developers, transforming internal developer platforms into a service marketplace. All via concepts and tools that developers working with Kubernetes already know and love. kcp expands the world of platform engineering beyond the limits of single Kubernetes clusters, and therefore transforms the scale at which platform teams and internal service providers can operate. This talk will explore patterns for both service providers and developers and how kcp makes their lives easier.

    Unleashing Kubernetes Intelligence - running k8sgpt utilizing your own fine-tuned LLM

    Mario Fahlandt, Customer Delivery Architect at Kubermatic

    10:45 AM CET at Cloud Native AI Day

    K8sGPT is a fast rising star inside the CNCF landscape. Most of us use it currently with paid resources - because of this, some of us can't utilize its powers. Follow me into the rabbit hole, creating your own fine-tuning of an LLM with Kubeflow and taking LocalAI for a spin inside our cluster to use this very model as a base. Now we have a local interface to use for k8sgpt. So we can scan our Kubernetes clusters, diagnosing and triaging issues in simple English. K8sgpt helps to pull out the most relevant information and enrich it with AI.

    As a benefit on top we enrich the LLM in the fine-tuning process with our own project or Open Source Documentation. So LocalAI acts as our very own ChatGPT to ask for help in our environment. The most amazing thing, we can do everything inside of Kubernetes, in our own infrastructure in our own Datacenter or Private Cloud.

    Why Kubernetes is Inappropriate for Platforms, and How to Make it Better

    Sebastian Scheele, CEO of Kubermatic with Stefan Schimanski (Upbound) and Mangirdas Judeikis (Cast AI)

    03:25 PM CET at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon

    The ecosystem is building platforms on Kubernetes now, starting with a hub cluster and then sticking tools for Gitops, for application descriptions and for infrastructure management together, with the goal to create custom APIs for the platform consumers. This works, but hits limits of Kube as a framework quickly. Can we do better? Oh yes, we can! This talk is about extending Kube, adapting its architecture to be a better fit for a world where instead of container orchestration two new personas are at the center: (a) the service & API provider (b) the self-service consumer, often developers or application owners. We focus on 3 dimensions to enable Kube to serve platform engineering better: - from kcp we take the workspace hiararchy as a vastly better multi-tenancy primitive. - cross-workspace API exports and bindings tailor-made for the service provider and consumer personas. - cluster mounting that integrates Kube clusters for a unified user interface and identity management.

    Contribfest: Build, Document, and Learn About Tinkerbell Community
Templates and Integrations

    Moath Qasim, Head of Engineering at Kubermatic with Jacob Weinstock (AWS)
    04:00 PM CET at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon

    Come help us build and document existing community Templates (https://docs.tinkerbell.org/templates/) and integrations. There are many community members that have built templates for deploying different operating systems and built integrations with different tools (like Netbox) that are documented anywhere. During this session we'll work together to either document existing templates and integrations or build new ones with you.
