As most of the commercial cloud providers embrace opensource technologies in their cloud platform, many enterprises wonder whether these technologies are ready for cloud scale. These opensource cloud technologies provide key functions like Orchestration, Scheduling, Traffic management, Security, Observability and form the core part of cloud fabric and services. In this session, I will review how major opensource projects like Istio, Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes, Envoy etc., are designed for performance and scale. I will also share my experiences on absorbing these open technologies and hardening them for enterprise consumption with focus on multiple industry use cases and application patterns.
