Cloud Native London September 2021: Palo Alto Networks and Helio AG

Two great speakers from Palo Alto Networks and Helio AG joined us at our September Cloud Native London virtual meetup, with attendees via Zoom, Rambly, and the YouTube/Twitch livestreams.

We are immensely grateful to Tecknuovo, Humio, Palo Alto Networks, CircleCI, and Netapp for your generous support and sponsorship.


Our first speaker was David Okeyode from Palo Alto Networks kicking us off for the evening with a talk about How attackers exploit containerized Azure workloads - and how to secure them (starting at 27:25). His takeaways were about:

  • Container security threat landscape for Azure.
  • Tactics that attackers use to exploit containerized workloads.
  • Practical techniques to limit the likelihood of a successful breach.

Then Christoph Buchli from Helio AG wrapped up our evening by discussing Sustainability, powered by Argo (starting at 1:00:40). He explained that:

  • Demand Flexibility is key for a sustainable future of Cloud.
  • The environmental footprint of the compute-intensive future can be significantly reduced through intelligent Scheduling and Deployment.
  • Cloud Native Technologies, especially argo, make sustainable computing possible.

And of course, a group photo from Rambly!
