Building Self-Healing Systems

Viktor Farcic

We can think of the whole computer systems like a human body that consists of cells of various types. Those cells can be hardware or software units. When they are software units, the smaller they are, the easier it is for them to self-heal, recuperate from failures, multiply, or even get destroyed when that is needed. We call those small units microservices, and they can indeed have behaviors similar to those observed in a human body. Microservices-based systems can be made in a way that they have the ability to self-heal. We’ll explore practices and tools required to set up fully autonomous self-healing systems based on Docker clusters. Such systems will be capable of both reactive recuperation from failures and proactive predictions of steps that should be taken to prevent failures from happening.

Hands-on Introduction to Kubernetes

Dr. Thomas Fricke

This is a basic overview of the features of Kubernetes:

  • architecture: pods, labels, replication
  • deployment and services
  • setting up: Kubernetes, kubectl, minikube and GKE
  • kube: apiserver, controller-manager, proxy
  • deployment: pods and services, updates, scalability.

The workshop is hands-on. Bring in your own laptop.

Zero Downtime Deployment with Ansible

Stein Inge Morisbak

Ansible is a radically simple and lightweight provisioning framework which makes your servers and applications easier to provision and deploy. By orchestrating your application deployments you gain benefits such as documentation as code, testability, continuous integration, version control, refactoring, automation and autonomy of your deployment routines, server- and application configuration. Ansible uses a language that approaches plain English, uses SSH and has no agents to install on remote systems. It is the simplest way to automate and orchestrate application deployment, configuration management and continuous delivery. In this tutorial, you will be given an introduction to Ansible and learn how to provision Linux servers with a web-proxy, a database and some other packages. Furthermore, we will automate zero downtime deployment of a Java application to a load balanced environment. We will cover how to provision servers with:

  • an application user
  • a PostgreSQL database
  • nginx with a load balanced reverse proxy
  • an init script installed as a service
  • zero downtime deployment of an application that uses the provisioned infrastructure
