Airbus journey towards Cloud-native: a year in review (Gilles Baillet, Airbus)
Many companies are trying to move towards Cloud-native in many different ways, adopting various strategies and principles. This talk will present some of the challenges that we faced at Airbus, how we approached it, what we learnt.
Gilles is a dual French-Australian citizen with a passion for Cloud, DevOps, IT automation, snowboarding, squash, beers and much more! He has extensive technical abilities and a passion for delivering services which improve the usability of systems. Much of his experience in recent years has been in designing, developing, implementing and testing infrastructure and application automation, with a strong focus on delivering CI/CD pipelines to dev teams. Gilles is currently working at Airbus in the South of France where he recently joined as product manager for the Cloud and DevOps platforms, translating the needs of Airbus customers into a secured platform that enforces regulatory controls (data classification, data sovereignty, data protection, segregation of duties…) and that allows platform users to continuously deploy code into production.

How community projects such as central repositories can be run on Kubernetes (Rimantas Mocevicius, JFrog)
The microservices powering GoCenter (a central Go modules repository) looks for new versions of thousands of the most popular Go modules on a daily basis. Such an operation requires a lot of scale and can be very expensive. In this talk, we will cover the different types of auto-scalers used such as cluster autoscaler, HPA along with the different custom metrics used and more importantly how we managed to cut down the operational costs by more than 50%.
Rimas Mocevicius is a big Open Source supporter. Co-founded Helm and wrote CoreOS Essentials book. He is currently the Senior Solutions Developer at JFrog.
