Keynote: Moving Cloud Native Beyond HTTP: Adding Protocols to Unlock New Use Cases

Jonathan Beri at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020

Kubernetes and related projects have first-class support for serving and managing HTTP traffic. This makes sense since the most common protocol used by web servers is HTTP. However, there are many popular protocols in the world that are *not* HTTP. These protocols are used across a variety of domains, from IoT to gaming to telephony and more. In order to build cloud native services with these protocols, we need to understand how and where networking protocols are supported to uncover roadblocks preventing new applications in domains like IoT & gaming. This talk will provide you with a deep understanding of various projects and their protocol support to uncover what’s available today, what’s being worked and opportunities for the ecosystem to collaborate.
