16 to 20 May 2022
KubeCon is the
Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship Conference that gathers adopters and technologists from leading open source and cloud native communities. Kubernetes, also referred to as k8s, is the open-source system that automates the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. The event takes place in Spain from 16-20 May 2022 at Feria Valencia.
Join the KubeCon and meet the
Kubernets Experts from Liquid Reply at their booth in

The team focuses on multi- and hybrid cloud solutions, site reliability engineering and operational enablement. As a development partner Liquid Reply strengthens a company-wide, cloud-based culture and helps companies to embrace the ever-changing IT universe as a part of their own DNA. The team ensures full cloud native potential by providing a holistic approach to people, systems and multi as well as hybrid cloud strategies.
In their talks Liquid Reply gives a deep dive into
Cloud Cost Management with FinOps and how to get really cloud native when migrating into the cloud:
GitOps Based Infrastructure as Code with Rancher Fleet and CrossplaneSpeaker: Hossein Salahi, Liquid ReplyTuesday, 17 May 2022, 10:30-11:00 a.m.
With more demand for deploying at scale, we need a new concept for multi-cluster management. The majority of current multi-cluster and multi-cloud management solutions are missing a unified control plane not only to manage Kubernetes cluster life cycle (vanilla or managed), but also application deployment, security policies enforcement (e.g., RBAC, network policies, etc.). By using GitOps patterns we can solve most of the above-mentioned challenges. Fleet is the next generation of cluster management tooling and uses Kubernetes Custom Resource Definitions (CRDs) to manage GitOps at scale up to deployments of thousands of clusters. Crossplane, on the other hand is a cloud control plane that transforms Kubernetes API into an interface to the public or private cloud providers. The Crossplane fits really well into the Gitops realm, since it allows declarative specifications of cloud services that are stored in a git repository for GitOps tools to pull from it.
Why Kubernetes Can't Get Around FinOps – Cost Management Best PracticeSpeakers: Vanessa Kantner & Manuela Latz, Liquid ReplyThursday, 19 May 2022, 04:30-05:05 p.m.
Anyone with the right permissions on a cloud provider can acquire resources or spin up Kubernetes Clusters. While developers can joyfully make cloud spending explode, traditional finance and procurement departments look around in wonder. The FinOps approach and the Foundation, which coined the word, dedicate itself to continuously enhancing best practices around cloud financial management. Managing Kubernetes resources is the masterclass of it. Having cost transparency and control over many dynamically scaling containers across many server instances can be difficult. Vanessa and Manuela share the experience in monitoring Kubernetes costs and planning budgets accordingly. This session covers how engineers – responsible for incurring costs – can support cloud cost management to prevent overspending and how this approach enables and empowers colleagues from finance, procurement and business in their daily doing. This, in turn, gives the engineer more freedom to explore new solutions.
From Cloud Naive to Cloud Native – Avoiding Mistakes Everyone DoesSpeaker: Max Körbächer, Liquid ReplyFriday, 20 May 2022, 11:00 – 11:35 a.m.
“Cloud native” is nowadays a very brought word, used for everything from projects going to the cloud, open source solutions or in architecture terminology. This misleads initiatives and corporate decisions on cloud-first projects as well as their promised savings, improvements or speed gain. In this talk, we will have a look at common mistakes, how corporations place them elf into a twister and why you first need to really understand Netflix, Spotify and co, so that you can understand that you are very much different. Because migrating to the cloud, doesn’t make you native. Feel the passive-aggressive vibes? Good, now we can talk! Let us seriously discuss about architectural patterns, what really matters in your cloud provider, leading decision processes on a technical level and finally what are the steps to become cloud native and not cloud naive.
