At this private event, our guests will be treated to a taste of Italy by Eataly (bring your appetite), drinks, and a $150 Nike shopping voucher.

Organizations are beginning to leverage containers for digital acceleration and to simplify their application development pipelines. As environments scale and grow, managing and enabling a large scale containerized infrastructure becomes increasingly difficult.

Kubernetes has emerged as the de facto infrastructure and application standard in the cloud. However, various complexities can make it complicated to deploy in a large-scale hybrid environment. Moreover, it’s often just one piece of larger initiatives to modernize legacy applications to modern architectures, migrate workloads to the cloud, or better support developers in the context of broader DevOps improvements.

Our industry leaders will discuss some of the most common dilemmas they hear their customers trying to solve around container management and take time to answer your specific questions.

After the panel, all guests will be treated to a personal shopping experience with Nike+ Experts and given a $150 voucher. Nike’s experts will discuss training and fitness goals with you and recommend the best in running, training, or lifestyle footwear and apparel. This event also includes Italian cuisine and a happy hour with plenty of time to shop and network with guests.
