Container platforms continue to evolve and mature in the Enterprise, with Kubernetes fast becoming the standard orchestration platform. Join Rancher and experts from Aquasec and StorageOS as we show how to easily deploy and manage a Kubernetes cluster, and then look into ways to address the questions of security and storage in the platform. In this session you’ll learn: How to deploy and manage Kubernetes clusters to any on-prem or cloud based platform How to deploy an application to the platform How to set up persistent storage volumes How to secure the container environments at each level Attendees are politely asked to ensure they attend if registered as space is limited to only 30 people, and also to be conversant with basic container management principles and aware of basic Kubernetes functionality.
