Toronto Azure Meetup for April - From Code to Containers on Azure - "Kubernetes" "Ansible" "Pipeline Automation"

  • Infusion Toronto 200 Wellington Street West Toronto, ON, M5V 3C7 Canada (map)

Topic: Linux Container Platform (Kubernetes, OpenShift and Ansible Automation) including Pipeline Automation - From Code to Containers and Continuous Delivery on Azure

Presenters: 
Kyle Bassett - Partner @ Arctiq and
Daniyal Javed - DevOps Consultant @ Arctiq

Containers, Containers, Containers! This demonstration by Kyle Bassett, Co-founder of Arctiq, will provision a multi-node OpenShift container platform on Azure. Kyle will showcase utilizing Ansible to provision Azure virtual machines, security groups, networking, storage, etc.  The function of this capability is to enable a foundation to leverage Ansible to install and configure the container platform. This will include all the base projects required to allow a development team hit the ground running, including scaling the platform when required. Arctiq will also discuss strategies and tools for scaling up and scaling-down the required infrastructure to handle peak periods of load on the cluster.

By the end of this session, you will:

  • Recognize the power of Ansible and Azure modules for automating your infrastructure provisioning - including the intricacies of scaling both up and down. 
  • Participate in a live demonstration of  an enterprise grade container platform based on Docker and Kubernetes running inside Azure, and touch on integrated features that help drive automation. 
  • Understand of the operational tooling available including metrics, logging, security, user management, scaling, recovery, etc., for modern platform management.

Part 2 of the session will focus primarily on how a development team can utilize and benefit from a cloud based container self service platform to support Continuous Deployment and Integration. Daniyal will demonstrate a CI/CD workflow beginning with GitHub code check-in, to complete pipeline automation utilizing Jenkins and OpenShift. The demonstration will include compilation, container image delivery, registration, and cross environment promotion.  Arctiq will also discuss other pipeline automation opportunities, including security compliance and scanning of code and container images.

By the end of this session, you will:

  • Understand how modern software tools can enable DevOps and accelerate software development teams
  • See a complete application pipeline in action, leveraging Github and Jenkins
  • Understand how all this automation fits into a heavy process based enterprise organization and how you can drive rapid automation while still adhering to  legacy processes.

We hope to see you at the meetup
