Cloud Native London November 2021: Authorizon, Humio, and Ververica

We had three great speakers from Authorizon, Humio, and Ververica joining us at our November Cloud Native London virtual meetup, with attendees via Zoom, Rambly, and the YouTube/Twitch livestreams.

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


Kicking off our evening was Or Weis from Authorizon discussing Permissions in your cloud-native product (starting at 29:59). His takeaways mentioned that:

  • Modern applications require modern access-control
  • There are 5 best practices to get permissions right today and tomorrow
  • Open source Solutions like OPA, OPAL, and Zanzibar can help get permissions baked in

Then we had Bjorn Graabek from Humio saying to Log Everything! (starting at 1:00:49). He reminded us:

  • Log everything!
  • Although observability is the new cool kid, combine it with logging
  • Humio = Speed, Scale, Low(er) Cost

Finally Seth Wiesman from Ververica wrapped up our evening with a talk on Stateful Functions: Flexible like a Microservice, Consistent like a Monolith (starting at 1:42:56). He explained that:

  • Stateful applications can be simple on Kubernetes.
  • Stream processors provide the right engine for modern infrastructure.

And of course, a group photo from Rambly!
