Civo for Kubernetes Provisioning – Shawn Garret

Interested in getting experience with cloud-native technologies such as Kubernetes but don’t have the resources on prem to make it happen? Running the datacenter out of one’s home has always been fun, but definitely has its own set of ongoing challenges. Using a cloud provider to get Kubernetes clusters running is easier than trying to maintain and provision your own clusters at home.

Choosing a cloud provider can be confusing, especially with unclear pricing. The major players such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud have way more features and offerings than you might need, or and you may be too afraid to apply your personal credit card to the operational expenses of cloud resources. Let me share my experience and reasoning of why I decided to choose none of those and went with Civo for my learning and development environments. Come along for an interactive live demo of how this cloud-native first provider can help accelerate your ease of learning and development! Learn how to get a started with a hosted Kubernetes cluster for as little as $4/month.

As always, any news, discussions, and questions about Linux / Open Source topics are welcome.

In today’s fast-moving, ever-changing world of data analytics, there are many awesome tools to choose from. The tool you choose depends deeply on the type of data you are working with and the type of analytic output that is needed. One of these tools is Elasticsearch and its analytic interface Kibana. This presentation by Bryan Vest will go over the basics of Elasticsearch – where it started, what it is built around, and what it can do for your data. This presentation is based on six years of experience managing an Elasticsearch platform and three years working for the developer, Elastic. If you are thinking about using Elasticsearch for your analytics platform, or happen to be already using it, or are interested in big data trends, this presentation should be an interesting journey into what Elasticsearch is and where it came from.
