stackconf 2023 | Climbing high — getting started with cloud native security through open source

Let us once again immerse ourselves in the fascinating world of the past stackconf 2023, where we were able to experience numerous exciting insights into expert knowledge. In our blog series, we would like to introduce you to the keynote speakers and their captivating presentations. Today we would like to remember Anaïs Urlichs and her inspiring talk on „Climbing high – getting started with cloud native security through open source“.

 

Take a Glimpse inside:

Anaïs points out that security-specific tools often only come into focus when they are urgently needed or when something bad has happened. While larger companies establish safety teams, many smaller organizations and individuals are left without this resource. The first part of her presentation discusses the parallels between climbing and the need for a safety mindset. Without safety specialists on the team, it could be risky for most cluster administrators, similar to free climbing, which is more suited to experienced experts. In the second part, Anais shows how cloud native security tools such as Trivy can be integrated into existing processes and monitoring systems. The goal is to equip Kubernetes cluster administrators and engineers with the necessary tools and knowledge to ensure the security of their resources without having to be experts in the field themselves.

 

Let’s have a Look at her Talk:

stackconf 2023 | Scaling a Collaboration Service like Nextcloud to 20 Million users

Let’s reminisce about stackconf 2023, which brought many insights, first-hand expert knowledge and inspiring ideas. In this blog series, we introduce you to our keynote speakers and their presentations at stackconf.
The next suggestion by Frank Karlitschek, „Scaling a Collaboration Service like Nextcloud to 20 Million users“ deals with the scaling of Nextcloud instances across different hosting centers.

 

A Short Summary of the Topic

Frank highlights the increasing centralization of user data by large US companies and advocates retaining control over personal data, protecting privacy and avoiding dependence on a few providers. To achieve these goals, open source, self-hosted and federated alternatives are recommended. He emphasizes that the internet and web are based on a distributed architecture and cloud services should follow this model. The talk presents an example of how a Nextcloud instance with 20 million users can be scaled across different hosting centers and continents. Both conceptual approaches and concrete implementations of Kubernetes, Ceph and MariaDB Clustering will be presented.
