End of ContainerSched 2017 - See you in 2018!

Container star Liz Rice answers some questions RE: Aqua and the upcoming ContainerSched!




Could you tell a little about how Aqua works?

The Aqua Container Security Platform provides development-to-production lifecycle controls for securing containerized applications - whether they run on premise or in the cloud, on Windows or on Linux, and whatever the orchestration environment. Aqua provides in-depth information for tracking and auditing events in your containerized applications, with real-time logging and granular event data. We make it easy for enterprises to get visibility into and control of all container activity, including user access, executables, run/stop status, access to files and more.

What are you looking forward to most at ContainerSched (and why)?

The lineup is terrific. With my interest in security a few talks particularly catch my eye related to how security can be enhanced by network policies, unikernels and service meshes. In previous years I've also learnt so much from the "hallway track" too.
What will you be sharing with the Skills Matter community over the course of the 2 days?

My talk is about the power of metadata in container deployments, with lots of example use cases and demos. Also, if you're attending and have questions about container security, please do come and say hello!

What is the outlook for Aqua for the rest of 2017 going into 2018?

Aqua is already fast becoming the gold standard solution for securing containerized deployments, and that's going to continue.

Container pro Stuart Davidson on the magic of mistakes!




Last year's ContainerSched was excellent - an incredible lineup of speakers who inspired and educated. However, it was some of the conversations I had afterwards, the war stories and the anecdotes of problems and how they were fixed... Those were what really made this conference special.

In my talk I'm hoping to cover Skyscanner's story - not the press release version but the mistakes we made and the learning points we've concluded that might be of use to someone else who is using (or wants to use) containers at scale.
