Description

For years, Janna Brummel and Robin van Zijll have been told no whenever any external hosting was discussed. They’ve always lost time by not being able to use the open source and cloud native products that are out there without adjustments. All because they’re engineers in a global financial organization, which has to stay in control of its IT risk and security. Luckily, sentiments are changing, and Janna and Robin are trying to prove it’s possible to run services in a secure container platform (based on Kubernetes and Istio) in the public cloud (Azure) while also taking care of SRE practices with (partly) cloud native tooling.

Join in to learn why they’re developing their secure container platform and why they chose Azure, Kubernetes, and Istio; what principles they aim to adhere to while developing the platform; architecture of their secure container platform; their use and plans for Istio, including how they aim to take care of observability; how they’re trying to fix their bank colleagues’ security and risk concerns; and their road travelled and lessons learned so far and the planned road map for public cloud secure container platform ventures.
