Zalando Case Study
Christian Kunert, Security Engineer, Zalando
Jan Löffler, Head of Platform Engineering, Zalando
In this talk, Christian and Jan take the audience on a journey of treacherous approaches, ill-considered solutions and dangerous routes. Zalando has embarked on a voyage of epic proportions out of their classical datacenter and they share the experience of how microservices enable Zalando’s engineers to move faster, build systems at scale, and keep Zalando’s digital trade routes, as well as everybody on them, secure. They will show how microservices, in conjunction with a cloud infrastructure, support autonomous teams where security is of highest importance. Finally, they draw upon their experiences to show how this all works in practice, and discuss what is necessary to really make identity matter for each and every Zalando customer, partner, service, and employee.
