Thomas is a Principal Engineer at Dynatrace and Tech Lead at the CNCF TAG APP Delivery with a very extensive interest in container technologies. He has been designing, building, and operating IT-infrastructures for about two decades and currently focuses on infrastructure automation and cloud-native application delivery mechanisms.
Unifying Infrastructure and Application Delivery
Did you ever promote your application from staging to production and forgot some important infrastructure changes? Do you wonder how to automate chaos tests into your delivery pipeline to validate your services can deal with failing nodes? When we at Dynatrace started our microservice journey, we had to deal with precisely those and many more questions. Using Keptn as a control plane for application delivery, we can orchestrate all those tasks to avoid any bad deployments while providing a unified deployment experience for our developers. In this talk, Thomas will bring some light into combined infrastructure and application deployment using Keptn to show you how those seemingly separated activities can be unified.
