The Open Ecosystem Team is excited to roll into the city with four times more bicycles than cars.

From Apr. 18–21, Amsterdam is hosting KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe, bringing together technologists and leaders from the open source and cloud native communities. If you can’t attend in person, you can still join us virtually.

Intel has been an open source contributor since 1991, and was the leading contributor to the Linux* Kernel, measured in the number of commits from 2007 through 2019. We’re working with Kubernetes* and other cloud architectures to keep improving their performance on Intel® architecture.

At the sold-out conference, we’ll be sharing our expertise on resource optimization and security in these sessions:

  • Node resource management: Alexander Kanevskiy, Principal Engineer, cloud orchestration software, is our first presenter. Together with speakers from Red Hat*, Google* and NVIDIA*, Kanevskiy will discuss proposals for improving how finite resources–such as compute, memory and storage–are reserved, allocated and isolated. Topics include CPU management, Kata Containers* for improved security, and confidential containers. 

  • How to build a driver for Dynamic Resource Allocation: Alexey Fomenko, Cloud Software Developer, will talk about Dynamic Resource Allocation (DRA), a new Kubernetes feature for resource scheduling. You’ll see how to build your own resource driver for GPUs. This session is hosted with NVIDIA*. 

  • Confidential Containers made easy: Fabiano Fidencio, Cloud Orchestration Software Engineer, will show how to provision Confidential Containers (CoCo) easily and run your first workload. CoCo is an open-source project that uses trusted execution environments (TEE) in hardware to enable cloud native confidential computing. This session is co-presented by Red Hat. 

  • Evolution of on-node adaptive power tuning: Atanas Atanasov, Cloud Native Senior Software Engineer, will talk about how to reduce power and cooling costs using more adaptive on-node optimization systems. This talk, presented together with Red Hat, will demonstrate how a combination of TuneD and Power Manager for Kubernetes software can help. 

You’re also invited to visit our booth (P13). We’re hosting several demos that show how we help to improve the performance and security of cloud native deployments.

Catch a demo of the Kubernetes management platform SUSE Rancher* with acceleration and enhanced security based on Intel® architecture. You can also see how Red Hat® OpenShift® Data Science makes GPU-accelerated artificial intelligence easy, too.

Edgeless Systems* will demo their encrypted Kubernetes solution, based on Intel® Trust Domain Extensions (Intel® TDX).

You'll find us at the booth on Wednesday from 10:30 a.m to 9:00 p.m. (the late finish includes the Kubecrawl + CloudNativeFest); Thursday 10:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m.; and Friday 10:30 a.m to 2:30 p.m.

On Thursday, we’re sponsoring a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) lunch and welcome attendees to network and engage in table topic discussions about DEI initiatives at Intel.
