[keynote] The Challenges of Application Data in a Global, Multi-Cloud Environment
We have only just started down the path of becoming truly "global" in our systems, applications, and data. The move to the cloud and a shift in thinking to distributed systems has opened a world of possibility for building broadly dispersed businesses. A few global-scale providers have reached this summit, but what does that mean for the rest of us?  

There is a future where infrastructure is abstracted away from our applications, services and data. A future where the deployment of an application is "global" at the push of a button. What does that mean to us today and where do we need to go as an industry to get there?  How does this play out with public cloud providers being the backbone of these global applications and what are the challenges we face as we leverage this backbone?

[keynote] Navigating the Many Definitions of Multi-Cloud and Their Implications
As an industry, we use the term “multi-cloud” in variety of contexts without any nuance. Digging in deeper, you find that there are many different definitions of multi-cloud, but they can roughly be summarized as workflow portability, workload portability, traffic portability, or data portability. In this talk, we try to define each of these variants and go into the nuance of what each means. You can be multi-cloud with any one of them, and they don’t preclude each other. However, there are very different approaches and implications for each version.

[keynote] The Future/Importance of Hybrid Clouds.
This talk will talk about different types of clouds.  Currently people are looking at Hybrid Cloud as the ability to put workloads in a cloud vendor and locally on premise.  I believe in the future we will see a third type of cloud vendor emerge, which I call the specialty cloud vendors.  I believe that users will want to run their containers in the "Walmart" clouds which will exhibit a race to the bottom on price, Amazon, Asure and GCE, and then a group of cloud vendors which will have specialty clouds.  For example Oracle cloud, which will provide the best environments for running Databases, or IBM cloud which could provide access to exotic hardware like Power, Z Series or even quantum computing, or maybe access to Watson.  Finally we could look at NVidia clouds which could provide access to the most advanced GPUs.  You will need an open platform to be able to move your jobs between all of these clouds.

[breakout A] Just How Open is the Cloud Native Stack?
Core cloud native technologies are necessarily open source technologies. But when we start to move away from the core, the “open core” world begins to rear its head. In an open core model, a commercial product is based on an open source core, usually with limited features. In this talk, we’ll look at the functional and community boundaries created at the intersection where proprietary software crosses open source software. We’ll then review the current state and future path towards a fully Open Cloud Native stack.

[breakout B] Our Journey Towards Building a Cloud-Agnostic PaaS at UC San Diego IT Services
UC San Diego is reshaping its way of doing business. IT Services (central IT) is partnering with offices and academic departments across campus to deliver new smarter systems that will help optimize business processes to support the University's growth.  In order to support these new systems, IT Services is undergoing a significant transformation to shift from traditional monolithic application development and infrastructure to Software as a Service (SaaS) for many, if not all, core business applications and a modern integration platform.

Our CIO's vision is simple: containers first, develop the ability to achieve multi-vendor orchestration, avoid unrationalized vendor lock-in, and go open source wherever possible. Following those directives, we are building our own cloud based data and application integration Platform as a Service that we are branding iPaaS.  Our iPaaS consists of a data integration and streaming platform using Apache NiFi and Apache Kafka, as well as an application and microservices platform using Docker and Kubernetes. iPaaS allows all developers on the platform to use standard Development practices and automated solution delivery to deploy robust, flexible and re-usable integrations and APIs. Join us to hear more about iPaaS and how IT Services at UC San Diego is leading the change in technology through people.

[breakout A] ISVs in a Multi Cloud World: Understanding the Impact of the Cloud Platform Oligopoly
The rapid development of the oligopoly of the three major cloud platforms - GCP, AWS, and Azure - and their strategies for competing with one another and growing their footprint in the enterprise market - has had a profound impact on independent software vendors (ISVs) of every size and in virtually every enterprise software category. It is critical for enterprise strategists, architects and software buyers to understand this impact and how ISVs are reacting in order to continue to realize the full value of their relationships with the ISVs and cloud platforms alike.

In this talk, Christina will explore such topics as:
  • what enterprises should demand of the cloud platform vendors to ensure that their ISV vendors can continue to deliver value effectively
  • which categories are at risk of being dominated by the cloud platforms’ own offerings hence threatening the survival of the ISVs previously serving those categories
  • which categories are unlikely to ever be successfully entered by the platforms themselves
  • the requirements imposed by the platforms on ISVs and the challenges these ISVs, particularly smaller and midsized organizations, face in maintaining their presence in all three ecosystems
  • why enterprises have a vested interest in ensuring a healthy ISV ecosystem to avoid platform lock-in and maintain their leverage
  • the nuanced differences for both vendors and buyers in the context of today’s multi-cloud world of different ISV delivery models from SaaS to managed cloud to self-managed in the cloud
  • a historical perspective on how this new cloud world compares to earlier platform ISV ecosystems

[breakout A] Nova, Multicloud Security... and You!
In the Cloud Native ecosystem there is a fundamental lack of forensics analysis tooling that pair in concert with incident response techniques. In other words it's challenging not only to make sense of a stream of forensics data, but to respond to it in a meaningful way.

In this presentation we explore the unique constraints of running a low level forensics analysis and incident response engine in a multilcloud environment. We look at how auditing at the kernel level frees us from having to concern ourselves with how our applications are running.

Finally we look at breaking into an environment and escaping the boundaries of a pod to gain access to the host system. In this example we watch as the Falco security engine can detect this malicious behavior and take action in responding to it at runtime.

[panel] Going Multi-Cloud For Realz: End User Stories From the Real World!
Multi-cloud is a long-term strategy for how enterprises source infrastructure that also informs a practical approach for running across disjoint, hybrid environments. Being able to move deliver entire applications into any infrastructure requires both a mind shift in operations and new set of tooling. It can be hard for teams to decide how to approach multi-cloud workflows, and operationalize, and push their infrastructure providers as organizations move to a multi-cloud world. This panel brings together end user practitioners and infrastructure providers who have passionately built this multi-cloud world and will offer their perspective.

As a panel, you will hear end users talk about:
--How multi-cloud changes the development process
--What gains can teams expect in the early days of multi-cloud (and how to achieve them)
--What kinds of workloads are being moved
--What are the best successes and worst horror stories

[keynote] Three keys to making the right (multi)cloud decisions: visibility, efficiency, and governance
Business survival depends on adaptive and efficient software development practices. Those practices require several things that necessitate a multi-cloud strategy. Workload portability is essential. Ensuring the ability to negotiate with suppliers is critical. The ability to use the best tools for the job is equally as important. The cloud promises to remove undifferentiated work from our teams. To realize that potential, we must have a measured approach.

The question isn't about if you will be a multi- or hybrid-cloud company. The question is: are you ready to be better at it than your competition. In this talk, we'll discuss the three keys to enabling your business to make the right cloud decisions: visibility, efficiency, and governance. These capabilities will help you operate with confidence across the multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud landscape.

[keynote] The Elements of a New Cloud Operating Model
Every large organization inevitably operates on multiple SaaS, PaaS and IaaS platforms. This is the reality of our day given the varied nature of enterprise workforce needs, business unit requirements, and the prevalence of industry consolidation including mergers and acquisitions. As a result, the natural world of how enterprises evaluated, consumed and maintained technologies and products has been turned upside down.

This talk intends to apply some science to how we – the architects, builders, operators, and leaders – can make sense of the vast array of elements, and their respective properties, that exist in our multi-cloud world. This session promises to get to the matter of this topic and aims to propose an initial methodology for how large enterprises can begin to regain order and control. The outcomes from this talk

* Learn how USAA structured a framework for data and analytics
* Gain insight into how USAA distilled the value of public cloud capabilities down to their functions
  *   Hear about what’s next and how other enterprise cloud practitioners can collaborate on moving this methodology forward.

[breakout B] Benchmarking the Cloud
Benchmarking cloud providers is difficult and time-consuming. In 2017 our cloud provider decisions were based on tests and informed assumptions. Then, while developing new features, we began to see results that contradicted our assumptions. 
This is what led to the 2018 Cloud Report, in which we compare Amazon Web Services (AWS) with Google Cloud Platform (GCP). While revisiting our 2017 decisions we realized that cloud providers improve behind the scenes and that a cadence of benchmarking is important for staying on the cutting edge.
In this talk, Andy Woods, Product Manager at Cockroach Labs, will speak about
  • Why we decided to benchmark
  • Gotchas we encountered along the way
  • What we learned from the exercise

In this talk, I argue that microservices, cloud-native, and related technologies promise to finally make complete multi-cloud possible by taking a bottom-up rather than top-down approach to portability.

However, this benefit doesn’t come for free. The critical design decisions that make microservices a key enabler of multi-cloud have damaged the local development experience. Developers struggle with immature tools that are ill-suited for the challenges that microservice development present. In this talk, we explore the problem and describe how, at Kelda, we’re working to fix it.
