With over 350 attendees from over 115+ companies and more than 25 speakers by community members, upstream project leads, contributors, end users, and from Red Hatters, the OpenShift Commons Gathering in Seattle this past week was a great place to learn about the future of Kubernetes, OpenShift, and cloud native infrastructure.

Seattle Shines Spotlight on Cross-Community Collaboration, Operators and Production Case Studies at Scale

The GE Digital team discusses the power of Red Hat OpenShift to enable innovation throughout their organization.

The OpenShift community is once again incredibly grateful to all the wonderful speakers and panelists who participated and shared their stories, roadmaps and use cases with us at the OpenShift Commons Gathering in Seattle. Your participation is what has made all of OpenShift Commons Gatherings so successful and served as inspiration to the rest of our community. Your insights, feedback, and lessons learned are an integral part of what makes OpenShift the leading Kubernetes-based Enterprise-ready Container Application Platform and continues to drive innovation into OpenShift, OKD, Kubernetes, Operators, KNative, and all the related upstream container and Cloud Native technologies that are part of our eco-system.

What’s Next? Deep Learning, GPU, Serverless, Operators, Bare Metal and more Cross-Community Collaboration!


The "Knative, Kubernetes, Istio: A New Cloud Stack?" Panel

One of the Common themes of the Seattle Gathering was the forward-looking nature of the case studies and panelist conversations.

Now that the underpinnings of OpenShift and Kubernetes are stable and continue to mature, the speakers were now focusing in on enabling and extending OpenShift for specific workloads such as Deep Learning, Mobile and Big Data.
