Celebrate the best of the open source and cloud native communities with us at KubeCon CloudNativeCon Europe 2024.

Paris, France, March 19–22, 2024.

For all the latest before, during and after the event, follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.

The KubeCon experience: we’ll be there… will you?

Last year’s KubeCon Europe in Amsterdam was fantastic, with deep discussions around the topics that matter, from platform engineering to software security. 

Can Paris steal the show for KubeCon EU 2024 this Spring?

We’ve booked our flights and hotels, and we’re ready to go. Join us at the venue: Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, 1 Pl. de la Porte de Versailles, 75015 Paris, France.

Keep checking this page as we get closer to March 2024. We’ll update it regularly as we add details about new sessions, drinks receptions, contests and other news!

Meet us and all the other exhibitors

As always, Spectro Cloud will be on site at KubeCon Paris all week. We’re a proud silver sponsor of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference.

Come and visit us at booth J24 in the solution showcase to:

  • See demos: Get hands-on with live demos of our Palette Kubernetes management platform, including our unique edge and bare metal capabilities, and our VMO feature for managing your legacy VM workloads right alongside your container workloads.
  • Show off your skills to win big: We'll be in the showcase all week handing out limited edition Paris-themes tees and tech pouches, and running daily raffles for OLED Nintendo Switches. Stop by!
  • Get your questions answered: Our most senior technologists will be at the booth. Whether we’re discussing platform engineering or AI, there’s no substitute for getting face-to-face.
  • Talk telco with us: Yes, MWC has just happened, but if you're at KubeCon and telco edge cloud is your thing, get together with Spectro, Canonical and Intel and we can run you through our joint CNEP architecture. It'll be worth your while.

Why not get ahead of the crowd at the Booth Crawl and set up a meeting? Our founders will be on site ready to sit down with you, and we're also lucky to be joined by two of our amazing integration partners, DeARX from South Africa and Natilik from the UK.

Come see us at Edge Day Europe

As always we’re a Diamond Sponsor of Kubernetes on Edge Day (#k8sonedgeday). Edge Day is the co-located event that’s all about edge computing and Kubernetes. Kubernetes on Edge Day Paris is on day one, 19th March.

We’re proud to gather adopters and technologists from across the community to advance the state of the art in edge Kubernetes. Whether you’re a member of the Linux Foundation LF Edge or other edge association or not, you’re welcome.

Curious about what goes on at Edge Day? Check out our presentations from previous events. 

Build your KubeCon schedule

We've had two talks accepted for the main KubeCon lineup. Check out all the details and make sure to add them to your own personal schedule.

This Won’t Hurt a Bit: Taking Kubernetes to 3,000+ Dental Offices Simply and Securely

Friday March 22, 2024 14:55 - 15:30 CET
Pavilion 7 | Level 7.3 | S04

Visited the dentist recently? A Kubernetes cluster might just have helped you leave with a smile on your face. 

In this talk, manufacturer Dentsply Sirona shares its insights from using K8s to power intraoral scanners across 3,000+ dental clinics.

You’ll discover how it achieved:

  • Zero-touch “plug and play” device onboarding, meaning no K8s expertise is needed at the edge site
  • Consistent declarative management of thousands of devices through a GitOps approach
  • Remote troubleshooting and over-the-air updates from a cloud-based management platform, avoiding costly field visits
  • Faster scans and seamless edge-to-cloud workflows for scan data, for better patient and clinician experience
  • Streamlined footprint, with low-power edge hardware and support for limited-connectivity edge sites
  • Robust device security and access controls for compliance with stringent industry regulations

If you’re working on your own edge rollout, Dentsply’s experiences will point you in the right direction.

Three’s a Crowd: How to Achieve 2-Node HA at the Edge and Make Your CFO Smile

Friday March 22, 2024 11:00 - 11:35 CET
Pavilion 7 | Level 7.3 | S06

When you’re scaling production K8s workloads to hundreds or thousands of edge sites, you know you need HA — but with conventional 3-node architectures, the hardware costs can be terrifying.

This talk presents a new architecture for 2-node HA that gives you the resilience you need, and 33% cost savings… for a happier meeting with your CFO!

It covers:

  • The challenge: real end user examples from hospitals, coffee shops and factory floors where 3-node HA proved problematic
  • The problem space: existing alternatives such as external data stores and ‘witnesses’ — and why they fall short
  • The blueprint: a new OSS-based 2-node HA design built on K3s, Kine, SQLite and Marmot, and the results it’s delivered so far
  • Your path forward: learnings from building this architecture so you can go forward with confidence!

One more thing...

Our Kairos team is also at the show, speaking on a panel with Google, Microsoft and AWS. They'll be discussing vital issues like immutability, atomic upgrades and OS security — super relevant for your edge stacks. Friday 22nd, 4pm.

Can’t make KubeCon? Don’t worry — we’ll be at an event near you very soon.

By the way: If you're traveling back to the UK after the show, sign up for Natilik's KubeCon debrief event at their London offices on 27th March, where we'll be joined by Hashicorp, Isovalent and Portworx.
