Who is this presentation for?

  • Developers interested in cloud native technologies or practitioners implementing cloud native in their organizations




Everyone loves Kubernetes, including here at Oracle. One of the most popular platforms on Oracle Cloud is the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (fondly known as OKE).

Karthik Gaekwad digs into why Oracle has seen such rapid growth and success using Kubernetes as a cloud native platform for enterprise developers. He details the lessons learned along the way—some good and some ugly—on how to manage, operate, and scale Kubernetes at a cloud provider scale.

This session is sponsored by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
