Arc & KubeFed - The Solution to Most Challenges? Sure... Let’s See It Live
10:50-12:00 (70 min)

We hear about multi- and hybrid clouds more often nowadays but how do they work exactly? In this session, we will demonstrate a real working environment where we interconnected Azure, AWS, GCP, OTC and on-prem infrastructures. In every hyperscaler, we deployed 1-1 Kubernetes clusters by using the native offers and connected them to the central Azure management. And what can we do with 5 different Kubernetes clusters? We can deploy distributed applications, we can use Kubernetes Federation and we can deploy Azure services like Azure App Service or Azure SQL database.

Martin has been working in the IT industry for almost 20 years. During this time, he has always had a strong focus on Microsoft technologies. For a few years now, this focus has shifted completely to Microsoft Azure.

Gábor has over 10 years of experience in system design, architecture and lead of incubation projects.

He is passionate about designing the most efficient system to the given exercise. Even if it is technical or cost (business) efficiency. If there is no good solution then it's time of innovation.
