SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 25, 2020 -- D2iQ, the leading provider of enterprise-grade cloud platforms that power smarter Day 2 operations, has today announced it will hold the first Cloud Native Virtual Summit featuring Kubernetes. The virtual event will be co-hosted with Container Solutions and held between 10am-5:30pm BST on Wednesday 1st April 2020. With recent global events impacting the ability to attend trade shows, D2iQ will bring together more than 45 experts from the cloud, data, and container space. Keynotes include Katie Gamanji, cloud platform engineer at American Express; Liz Rice VP open source engineering at Aqua Security and a fireside with Kelsey Hightower, technologist at Google, to discuss the value the cloud native ecosystem brings to organisations worldwide. 

The event will be free to attend but donations are encouraged to support Direct Relief which will receive 100 percent of the proceeds to help battle the spread of COVID-19. 

To remain competitive in today's fast-paced, digital world, organisations need to adopt technologies that enable them to innovate and scale. Kubernetes has quickly become the choice solution for teams looking to deliver modern cloud native applications while decreasing cost and optimising resources. However, learning and managing Kubernetes while navigating the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) landscape of tools can be a significant challenge. The Cloud Native Virtual Summit will offer technical and practical advice to attendees, as well as arm them with the resources needed to successfully manage their Kubernetes environments. 

With more than 45 speakers from over 30 companies presenting across eight tracks, the event will begin with a welcome address from Tobi Knaup, co-founder and co-CEO at D2iQ, followed by a series of breakout sessions to delve deeper into the specialist areas, including:

How to beat an existential crisis by becoming Cloud Native: Pini Reznik , CTO, Container Solutions will provide an overview of the mental models, patterns, designs and more to an effective strategy for dealing with crises 

“The use of Kubernetes has skyrocketed as more organisations than ever look to move from legacy to cloud native applications,” said Tobi Knaup, co-founder and co-CEO at D2iQ. “Our inaugural Cloud Native Virtual Summit will bring together this growing community and empower organisations as they move to Day 2 operations on their cloud native journeys.”
