Saarland Kubernetes/Cloud Native Meetup

This is an event for everyone interested in Kubernetes & Cloud Native Platforms and Applications. Topics include everything from (Open Source) technologies such as Kubernetes and Containers, organizational learnings and user stories.

We’re excited about microservices, containers, distributed computing and monitoring, security and organizational best-practices in a cloud-native world.

Any skill level is welcome – we want to create an open, welcoming environment for other Kubernauts.

  • Kubernetes and WebAssembly by Mats Brorsson, University of Luxembourg

    The most common form of container used in Kubernetes is the Docker container. For clusters with nodes of different architectures, this is a challenge as the containers need to be built to support multiple architectures so that they can run in pods on any node.

    WebAssembly is a technology built to make it possible to accelerate web page scripts to near native speed, and to use other languages than JavaScript. WebAssembly can also be packaged into modules and executed outside the browser thanks to the WASI interface.

    Krustlet is a replacement to the Kubernetes kubelet that is built to run WebAssembly modules instead of Docker containers. Since WebAssembly is architecture independent, this provides support for multiple architectures as long as there exist a JavaScript engine for that architecture.

    In this talk I will briefly introduce WebAssembly modules and Krustlet and if all goes well, provide a demo running WebAssembly modules on a Kubernetes cluster with ARM and x86-64 nodes.

Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Cloud native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, microservices, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs exemplify this approach.

These techniques enable loosely coupled systems that are resilient, manageable, and observable. Combined with robust automation, they allow engineers to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimal toil.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation seeks to drive adoption of this paradigm by fostering and sustaining an ecosystem of open source, vendor-neutral projects. We democratize state-of-the-art patterns to make these innovations accessible for everyone.
