Who is this presentation for?

  • Linux sysadmins and other practitioners who are looking to add public clouds (such as Microsoft Azure) to their portfolio

What you'll learn

  • Learn how the cloud is changing Linux deployments


Whether enabling large scale-out clusters, working at the heart of complex container-based architectures, or powering massive data solutions, Linux’s flexibility, composability, and robustness have made it the bread-and-butter of the cloud. But the cloud is also changing how we make Linux happen, such as new ways of packaging and distributing software, building and maintaining clusters, leveraging economies of scale for storage and networking, and, maybe most importantly, observing, controlling, and managing this sprawling Linux infrastructure.

Join Jose Miguel Parrella to explore these changes with regard to networking, high availability and clustering, security and management, and application operations and governance.

Are you thinking of joining this session today? First of all, thanks for browsing! There are many exciting things happening at 2:35 today, so I hope you consider joining me to talk about some of the more salient differences for Linux operations in the cloud: interaction with the provider’s management and control plane, storage and high availability, how networking and clustering are different and some topics on cloud-ready tools. Maybe you’re running tons of Linux on-premises but not yet in the cloud, or maybe you’ve been using the cloud as a developer and want to better understand the underlying Linux reality. Thanks for joining us!
