This month,  AppDirect is providing the food, drinks and location.

This evening will offer two presentations:

19h00 Secret management with HashiCorp Vault (From AppDirect)

Description:
Introduction to Vault: implementing, using and concepts of a secret management system. With current complex architecture and multiplication of components, we have to manage more and more secrets. With passwords, keys and even temporary accesses, they can be impossible to track down and manage properly. Vault allows us to move the ownership and control over to Vault, taking care of securing, storing and controlling access of each of those resources.

Monitoring Microservices in Docker, Cloud Foundry and AWS Cloud

This month, we have one presentation about visibility into containerized environments.

The meetup back to centre cloud.ca this month!

Food & beverages and the space will be sponsored by CA Technologies.

Presentations

Monitoring Microservices in Docker, Cloud Foundry and AWS Cloud
Description: CA Technologies will present us their way or getting visibility into Containerized infrastructure.

Microservices, Cloud Foundry and Dockerized applications are adding a new layer of complexity to an already complex application environment. When application issues arise, it becomes difficult to pinpoint the source and, too often, you find yourself in lengthy war rooms or assigning experts to triage every issue. As a result, brand loyalty, customer satisfaction and innovation are negatively impacted. The old approach to application performance management just isn’t working. A new approach is needed. In this session you will learn how to monitor these new modern applications to ensure the customer experience.

Presentations

Securing Your Infrastructure By Expecting User Error
Description: We build our IT systems to be fast, performant, power efficient, and secure enough to withstand direct hostile attacks. However, we rarely consider security vulnerabilities that may arise due to human error — faulty design, programming bugs, or bad user decisions. In this talk, we will look at how automotive engineers have learned to anticipate and minimize the impact of human errors, and will survey what technologies are available for us to apply the same approach when designing our IT infrastructure.
