Webinar: Kubernetes, Ingress and Traefik Usage at CERN

Time: 6:00 PM Location: Zoom Location in CERN maps:

At CERN we have built some of the largest scientific experiments in the world, where we accelerate and collide particles at close to the speed of light to try to better understand matter and the origins of the universe.

To handle the large amount of data generated we rely on a large computing infrastructure. In recent years containers and kubernetes have taken an important role in simplifying deployment, configuration and monitoring as well as helping us make better use of our resources.

In this talk we describe the multiple use cases for containers and kubernetes at CERN and give details on our software stack, including Traefik as the default ingress controller.
