Containers-as-a-service: Deploy Kubernetes faster with Canonical and Portainer

Thursday, Sept 23 2021 at 9am (PDT)

As Kubernetes (K8s) footprint grows in the enterprise world, more and more business owners are reporting challenges in adopting K8s in production. Ubuntu is the operating system of choice for Kubernetes from public cloud to edge clusters. Canonical is helping customers overcome their Kubernetes-related challenges through a comprehensive product and services portfolio. Our recent partnership with Portainer, the container management platform, removes the friction of configuring, managing and securing Kubernetes clusters and containerised applications. Our combined offering brings a container-as-a-service experience to businesses anywhere they run K8s allowing them to deliver highly reliable and responsive cloud native applications.

In this technical session, you’ll learn about:

  • The seamless, fast integration of Canonical Kubernetes distros and Portainer
  • Boosting time-to-market with MicroK8s and LTS Docker images
  • Migrating your workloads to K8s and protecting your infrastructure investment using Portainer GitOps features
  • Enabling consistent and compliant governance and security, leveraging Ubuntu’s long lasting security track record and Portainer RBAC integration

Self-healing Kubernetes at the edge: MicroK8s, Raspberry Pis and Portainer

Wednesday, Oct 6 2021 at 9am (PDT)

Are you looking to deploy home-grown Kubernetes clusters that adopt mission-critical features? This is just the right technical session that will help get your hands dirty with edge computing using Kubernetes, Raspberry Pi and Portainer.

As developers and businesses are shifting their attention to the edge, everyone wants to build their own edge clusters and manage them. However, building a highly available edge cluster is not easy. Kubernetes simplifies container deployments by abstracting the resource management details from the users, allowing them to deploy using standard CLI or templates.

Edge adds the challenge of executing these deployments at scale and with no access for local troubleshooting. This is where MicroK8s and Portainer shine, bringing a strong combination of a streamlined Kubernetes experience for small devices, such as the Raspberry Pi, and an intuitive UI to manage Kubernetes and containers across geographies.

In this technical session, you’ll learn:

  • How MicroK8s brings a full Kubernetes to edge deployments
  • How to build your own highly-available edge cluster with Raspberry Pis
  • How to use the Portainer dashboard to manage your Kubernetes
  • How to use Kubernetes deployments to ensure zero-downtime
