Session Name: Secure your cluster-to-cluster traffic, the agnostic way
Workday is shifting to a multi-cloud approach whereby its Kubernetes platform known as Scylla can be deployed to public cloud providers as well as Workday’s own data centers. To achieve this, we needed to route tenant data across existing AWS clusters in different regions, to Workday’s own data centre, and potentially in the future, to other public cloud providers. While cloud providers usually have solutions to migrate data to their own cloud, Workday aims to be cloud-agnostic, and as such needs a solution to migrate data cross-clouds. The platform teams and application development teams cooperated to develop a solution relying on Kubernetes operators, Istio, and Helm-delivered application configuration. This talk will give an overview of the tools and technologies used to migrate tenant data to other clusters, wherever they are deployed.
Pauline Lallinec is a software engineer on the public cloud engineering team at Workday, where she works on building a cloud provider-agnostic platform using technologies such as Kubernetes, Helm and Istio. Pauline talked about Helm, custom resources, and operators, at the Helm Summit, at the Dublin Docker Meetup and at Workday's internal conference. In her spare time, Pauline enjoys karaoke, climbing mountains, and looking at pictures of cats.
