Superpowers for Kubernetes

DevOps and Kubernetes, Workload Scheduling and Navops Command featuring Joe Beda

It's no secret that containers are being adopted at a record-setting rate and Kubernetes has become the orchestration solution of choice for many enterprises! As deployments get to production and ultimately to scale, resource constraints will dictate the need for advanced and automated scheduling tools.

The founding engineers of Kubernetes at Google saw in the very early days that advanced scheduling would be required and took into account in their Kubernetes modular architecture the ability to readily replace the Kubernetes scheduler or utilize multiple schedulers in parallel.

Univa has many years of scheduling experience in high performance computing and technical computing applications. We bring to the world of containers innovations like proportional resource share management, resource quotas, access control lists and resource inter-leaving.

This meetup covers Kubernetes architecture, Kubernetes scheduling, the business case for advanced scheduling and the merits and technical capabilities of Navops Command.
