Session + Live Q&A

Resiliency Superpowers with eBPF

eBPF is a powerful technology that allows us to run custom programs in the kernel. It’s enabling a whole new generation of tools for networking, security and observability. Let’s explore how it can help us build resilient architectures. 

This talk - with demos - considers several facets where eBPF can help, from dynamic vulnerability patching, through super-fast load balancing, to multi-cluster networking. You’ll also see how eBPF enables the observability we need to diagnose what’s happening when things go wrong.
