Running apps and services across several cloud providers and/or data centers can bring many benefits for organisations. Making your app stack compliant with multiple cloud providers can be problematic due to differences between cloud providers such as networking configurations. And to make things even more difficult, you need to have a way to secure the intra-services’ communications between cloud providers. In practice this means cumbersome network configurations with VPNs and other networking security solutions. Luckily, containers and modern (container) overlay networks can solve this complexity for you.
In this tutorial we dive deep in how to easily setup a container platform hosted on multiple different cloud providers with a secured overlay networking for intra-service communications.
Presenter Jussi Nummelin is a software developer by trade and bold early adopter of container technology having gone to production with Docker 0.6 release with lot of war stories to share. Today, Jussi is maximizing (other) developers' happiness by building our easy to use container & microservices platform at Kontena, Inc.
