Cloud Native technology is everywhere this week at Oracle OpenWorld and Code One. The Cloud Native Labs team will be out in force talking about Kubernetes, Serverless, and Cool Startup Use Cases – plus so much more.
If you take a moment to look closely at what’s being showcased here at Code One and OpenWorld and more broadly across Oracle today, you might be surprised to see open source technologies everywhere – Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle Linux, Java, MySQL, Machine Learning, Serverless, Big Data, and more. You shouldn’t be – as there’s actually a very rich history at Oracle across all these technologies.
Now, with the rise of the Developer, the emergence of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a unifying and organizing force in the cloud native ecosystem (end users and vendors alike), and development teams big and small moving to a multi-cloud or hybrid-cloud model, the vision that application development and DevOps technology should be open and thus cloud neutral is within reach - allowing developers, enterprises, and startups alike to run anywhere they choose.
Let’s take a cloud native, open source tour around OpenWorld and Code One. Below I’ve listed some open source highlights – curated a bit – and I encourage folks to explore all these subjects on their own!
Kubernetes – Last year at OpenWorld 2017 we launched a fully managed Kubernetes service - Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) which was one of the first certified by CNCF in November 2017. This year there’s sessions to learn how customers are using Kubernetes in production, best practices for building apps, and Meet the Expert sessions where you can get all the answers to your questions. Check them all out here and more.
Serverless – The open source serverless Fn Project has many sessions at Code One and in the Meet the Expert area. These range from a Hands-on-Lab, tutorial, a sessions on “Serverless Java: Challenges and Triumphs” and “Bringing Serverless to Your Enterprise with the Fn Project.” Learn more about the project at the GitHub repo https://github.com/fnproject. Lots of options to learn a little, get started, go deeper, and even play around with Fn in a lab environment.
Linux - Today, Oracle announced the Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment, a curated set of open source CNCF projects that can be easily deployed, have been tested for interoperability, and include enterprise-grade support. This is big news as it extends cloud native coverage to any environment a developer needs – from on-premise to hybrid to public cloud. By choosing an open source, CNCF centric stack, developers can avoid cloud lock-in, deploy where they want to, and with the Oracle Linux Cloud Native Environment, Oracle provides a unique, ubiquitous framework – from on-prem to cloud – with full support for open standards and specifications.
Java – A can’t miss open source staple of this year’s conference originates from the original JavaOne conference tracks which continue on this year throughout the Code One conference. Make sure to check out the Core Java Platform Track which has deep roots from the JavaOne conference and continues to be stewarded by the Oracle Java Platform Team. Also be sure not to catch the sessions from the Oracle Java Platform Team that run as part of the Core Java Platform Track at the event! Other highlights include the open source Graal sessions, too.
Big Data, Data Science, Deep Learning – There’s a ton of open source driven data science, machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence sessions at OpenWorld this year with a key focus on Spark, Kafka, and Hadoop platforms. With the confluence of big data and machine learning on top of Cloud Native platforms don’t miss the open source session on Graphpipe – “Blazingly Fast Machine Learning Inference [DEV5593]” on Monday, Oct 22, 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM at Moscone West - Room 2009.
MySQL – Finally, OpenWorld and Code One have a whole track dedicated to MySQL. I am particularly looking forward to the “Containerized MySQL [DEV6110]” session by Patrick Galbraith. The session digs into the ins and outs of running containerized MySQL from a simple standalone MySQL container, backups, Helm charts, to Kubernetes operators.
