Interesting Sessions by OpsMx @Spinnaker Summit 2020
Already using Spinnaker! The following sessions are a must for you:
- Keynote: Scaling Spinnaker for multi-region multicloud SaaS deployments in production
by Edgar Magan, Cloud Architect, Salesforce, and Gopinath Rebala, CTO, OpsMx
About the session: Spinnaker’s key differentiator is its ability to deliver applications and services in highly distributed multi-cloud environments. The Spinnaker open-source community defines multi-cloud as both IaaS and PaaS providers such as AWS, GCP, Kubernetes, Azure, App Engine, and many more . Spinnaker has the power to not just orchestrate deployments to different providers but also maintain deployed application states for visibility and diagnostics and provides a unified experience for the DevOps teams. As Spinnaker is tasked to manage increasingly large infrastructure at Salesforce, performance and scalability limitations started affecting usability and operations. This session presents some of these limitations and the collaboration efforts between Salesforce and OpsMx to overcome some of these scalability limitations. We will discuss Spinnaker sharding efforts and the positive results obtained in our multi-region deployments.
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 11:00am – 11:30am PT
- Enabling Diverse Application Use Cases Using Spinnaker – Cisco Success Story
Balaji Sivasubramanian, VP, Product, OpsMx and Anil Anabermutt, Technical Systems Architect, Cisco
About the session: Cisco adopted Spinnaker a couple of years ago and has onboarded more than 1000+ applications. Initially, Cisco started off deploying traditional cloud-native container-based applications to on-prem cloud platforms (OpenShift) and then to public cloud (AWS, GCP). Now Cisco is extending to other technology platforms using custom deployments models available in Spinnaker. Cisco is successfully deploying to Snowflake (SaaS data warehouse), Teradata, and Informatica (Data Analytics platforms) and planning to extend to other use cases in the future. In this session, you will learn about considerations for using Spinnaker for non-cloud platform workloads and best practices and learning from these migrations.
Date and Time: Thursday, October 22, 2020, 1:30pm – 2:00pm PT
- Extending Spinnaker via Custom Jobs
by Nirmalya Sen, Head of Engineering, OpsMx
About the session: About the session: Spinnaker provides a number of ways you can extend to add additional functionality needed for your CI/CD processes. One of them is via the use of custom jobs. In this session, we will show you how you can write custom jobs in Kubernetes and add them to your pipelines to do additional processes. You will also see how you can use the generated artifacts or data in downstream stages.
Date and Time: Tuesday, October 27, 2020, 2:00pm – 2:30pm PT

- Scale CI/CD in your Enterprise Through An Internal Spinnaker as-a-Service Model
by Balaji Siva, VP Product, OpsMx and Gopinath Rebala, CTO, OpsMx
About the session: As Spinnaker’s adoption increases beyond a single group, the Enterprises developer productivity team is increasingly looking to offer Spinnaker CD to more internal groups. While some organizations have adopted a model of large Spinnaker instances to support all of their groups, they quickly realized that having a large Spinnaker instance is challenging. Spinnaker as-a-Service for individual internal business units or developer groups is an approach where the central team provides new Spinnaker instances to groups on-demand. However, the central team is interested in minimizing the operational cost of such a large number of Spinnaker instances. In this talk, we will talk about how to build an internal Spinnaker as-a-Service in your organization, covering topics such as easy installation, configuration, app onboarding, maintenance, and update of multiple Spinnaker instances.
Date and Time: Tuesday November 10, 2020, 11:35am – 12:05pm PT
- Vault integration for application delivery in Spinnaker pipelines – best practices and lessons from the field
by Gopinath Rebala, CTO, OpsMx
About the session: Applications are delivered in cloud environments with infrastructure as code used for dynamic environments. Security in dynamic environments with ephemeral secrets used by applications and managing these secrets is not trivial. Organizations are struggling with secrets management that fits their process of application delivery in these dynamic environments. Spinnaker is a powerful continuous delivery platform. In this talk, we will present application secrets management patterns that are commonly used and demonstrate a couple of those patterns using Spinnaker delivery pipelines. We will discuss the pros and cons that of approaches and what worked in our implementation.
