August 27: Kubernetes, Ingress and Traefik Usage at CERN

Join us for this Online Meetup!

Kubernetes, Ingress and Traefik Usage at CERN

Speaker: Ricardo Rocha, Software Engineer at CERN


At CERN we have built some of the largest scientific experiments in the world,
where we accelerate and collide particles at close to the speed of light to try
to better understand matter and the origins of the universe.

To handle the large amount of data generated we rely on a large computing
infrastructure. In recent years containers and kubernetes have taken an
important role in simplifying deployment, configuration and monitoring as well
as helping us make better use of our resources.

In this talk we describe the multiple use cases for containers and kubernetes
at CERN and give details on our software stack, including Traefik as the
default ingress controller.

Ricardo is a software engineer at CERN currently part of the CERN cloud team, focusing primarily on networking and container based deployments. Previously he helped develop and deploy several components of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid, a network of ~200 collaborating sites around the world helping to analyze the Large Hadron Collider data.

Ricardo has presented his and his teams work in different international conferences - Computing for High Energy Physics (CHEP), IEEE NSS/MIC, IEEE MSST, DockerCon, Kubecon and multiple OpenStack summits.
