Building a Bank with Kubernetes - Oliver Beattie, Monzo

In this talk Oliver Beattie, Head of Engineering at European startup bank Monzo, explores how they are building a micro-services core banking platform, and how Kubernetes enables it all.

It's a new kind of bank – unshackled from beastly, complex legacy systems – one that belongs in the 21st century, and one with the best technology in the world. Topics covered include:

* Architecting applications with extreme performance and consistency requirements
* RPC at scale between thousands of services in a container environment (discovery, load balancing, fault-tolerance, and observability)
* Managing resources across physical data centres and multiple cloud providers
* How Kubernetes is particularly well-suited to building very secure applications
