Our final show for 2017 is upon us, and we’re packing for Austin, Texas to attend KubeCon + CloudNativeCon from December 6 to December 8. This show will be the largest yet for Kubernetes and as a Gold Sponsor, NetApp will showcase its portfolio and plug-ins that enable container technology to be more persistent, secure, and scalable to support growing storage demands.


At the show, you will hear a lot about Trident, our plug-in for Kubernetes that simplifies storage persistence. As a trusted provisioner and orchestrator for storage, Trident efficiently delivers the tools that enterprises need, at scale, to consume resources on demand.


Come and visit us in booth #G5 to learn more and see some demos.


And here are more ways for you to engage at KubeCon:

  • Attend our lightning talk Watch This! on Tuesday, December 5, at 6p.m. with Jonathan Rippy in Ballroom A, Level 1. Jonathan will demonstrate how to run Kubernetes on his LG Urbane Smart Watch. Yes, a watch!
