Building, deploying and maintaining systems has become increasingly more complicated in recent years. Now, as engineers look toward migrating to multi-cloud architectures, systems and processes may need to be migrated to new technologies. But what choices are available, how do they fit together and how can the CNCF landscape help?

This talk discusses the cloud native technologies that can be used to convert to a multi-cloud architecture and highlights some of the lessons learned from taking this journey on at Form3.

The audience will learn:

  • How to decide if multi-cloud is essential for them
  • The fundamentals of deploying services across multiple clouds with Kubernetes
  • How to leverage Cilium to mesh together multiple clusters
  • The basics of event sourcing using NATS in the multi-cloud world
  • Resilient and performant data storage using CockroachDB

This talk is useful for any new comers to the cloud native landscape, as well as those curious about going multi-cloud!
