Hyperconverged, the next step in the DevOps revolution

Organisations are constantly striving to implement and refine their DevOps practices. Modern technologies such as Kubernetes are well suited to modern workflows, but this doesn’t mean that legacy infrastructure needs to be left behind. While many take a philosophical approach that you can modernise or migrate everything to the new world, in reality this is not always pragmatic.

In this session, we will walk through how the industry is approaching modern hyperconverged infrastructure — breaking down the barriers between modern applications and legacy infrastructure. We will guide you through SUSE’s latest innovations in the Open Source Hyperconverged Infrastructure project, Harvester. Powered by Rancher technology, Harvester brings your modern containers and traditional infrastructure closer than ever before. Combining these technologies, you can ensure that you avoid perfection becoming a hinderance to progress combining these technologies, you can ensure that you avoid perfection becoming a hinderance to progress.
