Video: UberCloud Containers on Kubernetes

Burak Yenier is CEO and Co-founder of the UberCloud.

In this video from High Performance Container Workshop at ISC 2019, Burak Yenier presents: UberCloud Containers on Kubernetes.

For software developers and providers, be it in-house, open-source, or commercial, UberCloud develops ready to run application software containers to ease the usability, accessibility, and portability challenges for the development, execution, and maintenance of engineering and scientific applications in public and private cloud environments.

Linux Containers continue to gain momentum within data centers all over the world. They are able to benefit legacy infrastructures by leveraging the lower overhead compared to traditional, hypervisor-based virtualization. But there is more to Linux Containers, which this workshop will explore. Their portability, reproducibility and distribution capabilities outclass all prior technologies and disrupt former monolithic architectures, due to sub-second life cycles and self service provisioning. This workshop will outline the current state of Linux Containers, what challenges are hindering the adoption in HPC/BigData and how containers can foster improvements when applied to the field of HPC, Big Data and AI in the mid- and long-term. By dissecting the different layers within the container ecosystem (runtime, supervision, engine, orchestration, distribution, security, scalability) this workshop will provide a holistic and a state-of-the-container overview, so that participants can make informed discussions on how to start, improve or continue their container adoption.

Burak Yenier is a Co-Founder and serves as Chief Executive Officer of UberCloud Inc. Mr. Yenier is an expert in the development and management of large-scale, high availability systems and in many aspects of the cloud delivery model including information security and capacity planning. He has been working on Software as a Service since early 2000 and held management positions in software development and operations in several companies. In his most recent role as the Vice President of Operations Mr. Yeniermanaged the multi-site datacenter and digital payment operations of a financial Software as a Service technology company located in Silicon Valley where he built cloud infrastructure and operations from scratch and for scale.

    I have read the article and I think they are able to benefit legacy infrastructures by leveraging the lower overhead compared to traditional, hypervisor-based virtualization.
    No doubt that there is a place for containers, but this seems to be an overly ebullient view of containers.
    It has been proven in multiple benchmarks (do we need to provide info on which benchmark?) that hypervisor-overhead compared to bare metal is around 4%. Is 4% overhead too high to pay for most applications? How many HPC applications can be confidently claimed to be at over 96% of peak system performance? What is the overhead of containers? It is no zero-cost!
