Cloudyna is the oldest community public cloud conference in Poland and the very first multi-cloud event that is not attached to any vendor. By deriving from our experience, organizing previous editions of the conference and being deeply passionate about the cloud computing topics, we gather the community of enthusiasts in the very heart of Silesia. We focus on delivering solid technical content from the best industry experts, with a day full of workshops and speeches.
This year, we’re aiming to become one of the most recognizable conference for public cloud experts.
Key figures recognized in the community who will deliver the highest substantive level.
A unique chance to exchange ideas and interact with other attendees.
One of the best facilities in Poland.
We share acceptance and respect towards the attendees and help explore simple tolerance to embracing rich dimensions of diversity.
Full of surprises and inspirations, where historical mines are contrasting with modern facilities.
Delivered by the best European speakers and trainers, selected by the Program Board.
This conference is targeted to professionals who want to understand the complexity, interesting patterns, new approaches, techniques, design secrets, implementation, testing and administration of cloud applications. We strongly invite those who are looking for a chance to network and develop professional contact list. Join us if you’ve been in the cloud computing world for a while.
The first thing that had to be done to introduce the public cloud to the largest and most regulated bank in Poland was to remove from the bank's regulations that the public cloud is dangerous and completely prohibited.
But the hardest thing was finding the „Rascal Engineers” who wanted to do it and pushing far away all those who disturb them. If you want to listen to how to build organizations as part of the road2cloud transformation and hear what worked, what to avoid and what are the tradeoffs, I cordially invite you to my speech at the most interesting cloud conference.
See you soon „Rascal Engineers”!
Using the public cloud means living with events. Utilizing more than a thousand AWS accounts means living with many events.
Decoupled, asynchronous applications and event-driven architectures can produce and consume countless events propagated between accounts and regions.
Besides that, we have the cloud environment, which produces hundreds of additional events we want to take care of. Services like GuardDuty or IAM Access Analyzer can be very "loud".
I will show how to leverage Amazon EventBridge and other cloud-native services to make our life easier.
The acquisition of UPC in Poland by Play means the creation of a new tycoon of convergent services - a combination of the largest mobile network operator in the country with UPC's fiber-optic internet and TV offer.
Why should this information interest the participants of one of the oldest cloud computing conferences?
We must not forget that from 2019, 3S Data Center - the owner of 7 data centers and a provider of complete cloud solutions, is an important part of this business.
The topics that our speakers will cover include
Security challenges evolve in line with IT platforms. We paid attention to completely different aspects of cybersecurity in the context of on-premises environments, different for private/public cloud environments, and today we face challenges related to modern hybrid / multi cloud environments. What are the key security aspects we have to cover when dealing with multi cloud platforms?
During the presentation, we will go through the key risk factors affecting the security of multi-cloud environments and talk about the practical side of their mitigation.
It might feel like chasing a rabbit to keep up with users’ requests for new configurations and policies. It is even more challenging if you build for power users. In the talk, I will show how to use the Open Policy Agent (OPA) for these scenarios, share our experience in Spacelift, and present how to integrate OPA into your Golang application.
Over 4 years ago we started the Vodeno project. 3 years ago, our banking platform was launched in the GCP public cloud for the Friends & Family phase. In November 2019, we successfully completed the complete migration of the Belgian bank (Aion) to our cloud. We have already talked about "how to build a bank in the cloud" many times. Almost 3 years have passed since then. The platform has expanded and 4 countries are already operating (Belgium, Poland, Germany and Sweden). During these 3 years, the company's strategy changed and the application layer also changed. In retrospect, we know that apart from these good architectural decisions, there were also those that were wrong (theoretically good at a given moment in time) - for example: separate environments for each country. We are currently running a project called Multibranding, i.e. combining these separate entities one common.
Business has changed as well. Aion is currently focusing on offering its financial services not in direct mode (so-called organic growth) but through partners in the BaaS model (Banking-as-a-Service), who enrich their services with Aion's financial products. From a technological point of view, this way of development also required the definition of new architectural standards (e.g. a consistent and efficient API for BaaS partners) and was a challenge in itself.
If you want to find out in detail what challenges we had, how we managed to address them and what we learned along the way, we invite you to our lecture.
Also check out our interview at Google where we talk about building a bank in the cloud.
Modern technologies allow organizations to deliver more straightforward and more efficient services, reduce costs and be more competitive in the market. It's only some of the benefits that Digital Transformation delivers. But have you ever thought about what is behind it? How Digital Transformation is designed and who is involved to it? During the presentation, you will see how the design process of Digital Transformation looks like and the challenges of its implementation.
Cloud accelerates technical operations, subsequent deployments and business growth. Over the years, thousands of businesses have chosen cloud to generate new revenue streams, increase operational efficiency, and decrease business risks. In this session we will talk about facts, myths and not-so-obvious things related to cloud migration. Discover 7 things about migrating to the cloud that no one will tell you about and how to deal with them whether you are a startup, SMB or enterprise.
Before we deliver any larger cloud project, we need a team. Building a successful one is not a trivial task, as we experience a shortage of cloud specialists on the market, and we all know that cloud computing has a steep learning curve.
How to build such a team from scratch? How to train and guide juniors? What is the role of cloud architects and technical leaders? How to share knowledge and experience within the team?
Based on my experience as a cloud architect and technical leader, I will share my answers to these and related questions to inspire and encourage you to find yours.
Important: Workshops will take place in the same time and at the same venue as the presentation track. You can attend only one workshop at a time.
Workshop tracks are exclusive to presentation track and other workshop tracks (meaning if you choose a workshop, you cannot switch tracks midday – mostly because workshops require continuity to provide value), but you still get to attend all the conference activities like networking, breaks, lunch, chill out, etc. No additional charge is required for choosing any workshops.
All presentations will be recorded and published, so if you choose to attend any workshop – you don’t have to be afraid of missing any speeches.
Format: intro to the problem space with hands on engineering, bring your own device
The workshop will allow participants to use services to manage network traffic in the cloud environment in terms of security. In the second part, we will focus on using embedded services to secure the Azure environment and more.
The aim of the workshop is to build awareness of what services can be used in the cloud and how to configure them well to protect our environment.
The workshop shows the entire lifecycle of an AWS cloud-based data science project. After performing feature engineering, you will then train, tune and deploy an ML model. Afterward, you will debug the training process and set up model monitoring. Finally, you will automate and orchestrate the entire process. Note: This is not your usual Data Science 101 course. We will not explain data science fundamentals. We focus solely on the "ML on AWS" part.
Azure Virtual WAN is an increasingly common choice for large, geographically dispersed environments. Thanks to Microsoft's solution, building a complex hub-and-spoke topology with implemented BGP has become extremely easy. The native integration of Fortinet solutions inside the VWAN HUB raises the functionality of such an environment to an even higher level. Fortigate deployed at the heart of such an environment allows you to build a secure hybrid cloud based on Azure Virtual WAN with full support for SD-WAN functionality. In this workshop we will learn how to build such a topology from scratch, starting with a single Fortigate deployed in Azure and ending with a hybrid cloud based on Azure VWAN.
Running containers in the AWS Cloud allows you to build robust, scalable applications and services. Learn how to effectively run containers on AWS using Amazon EKS, Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), and AWS Fargate. Throughout this workshop, we will host live demonstrations and hands-on labs covering what you need to know to get started and build modern applications using containers in the cloud.
Learning the Internet of Things and cloud computing works best if we start practicing it sooner rather than later. In this workshop, you will learn about the Internet of Things, its variants – with similarities and differences, and possible use cases. Then you will see a few IoT cloud architectures. Finally, you will connect devices to the clouds, send messages and build a simple data processing solution.
This hands-on experience will be a good basis for learning more about this topic and finding a real-life IoT cloud project.
In order to provide as much practical knowledge as possible, the event will test migration scenarios between "cloud A" and "cloud B" or the local Data Center. Users will migrate VMs from Azure to AWS, for example.
The presenters will show how to protect data in hybrid environments in practice. For example - a user uses Azure/AWS resources and at the same time a Virtual Data Center environment provided by 3S Data Center.
What should you do to adequately protect yourself during data migration?
As a bonus, securing the M365 cloud (Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365) using S3 (simple storage service) will be discussed.
We’ve invited the leading experts from multiple companies working with public cloud to be part of something we called: “Ask the experts stand”.
Ask the experts will be the stand available to all conference participants in the foyer of the conference venue.
Each company picked the topic they feel strong about and experts from that company will be available for one hour slots. They will prepare lightning talks, discussion panels and Q&As from the chosen topics.
If you feel you’d like to ask/talk about some specific problem relating to public cloud or listen about a new technical approach – just walk up to the Ask the Expert stand given hour and feel free to talk it through with one of the experts!
