Join Portworx at Kubecon 2022

It’s finally here, KubeCon North America 2022. After years of flying to Europe to attend KubeCon Europe, the time has finally come for me to attend a KubeCon here in North America!


Like many avid Delta Airlines frequent fliers, I’m excited to finally leave the Detroit airport and actually make my way into downtown Detroit and see all it has to offer.


Portworx will be there throughout the week showcasing the Detroit Revival. We’ll be highlighting the evolution of the city from its roots with Ford Motor Company and General Motors to the modern day brands like Shinola that are leading Detroit into the modern era.

What you’ll see from Portworx at KubeCon 2022


Much like Detroit, Portworx is helping customers as they transition from their roots with traditional, machine-based architectures to a modern architecture built on containers and Kubernetes.


At KubeCon North America, customers will have an opportunity to see how Portworx is making it easy to operate, scale, and secure Kubernetes apps and databases anywhere, with just a few clicks and engage with our technical and product experts at the booth to see the latest Portworx innovations.

DoK Day

As a proud sponsor of the Data on Kubernetes (DoK) community, we are excited to see everyone in person at this year’s DoK Day North America on Monday October 24th. The event is a hybrid event with an opportunity to join in person at the DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown or virtually anywhere in the world.


Join our very own Bhavin Shah for an important panel discussion at 1:15pm ET:


Databases on Kubernetes: Why are they important?


Kubernetes has crossed the chasm, but what about stateful applications and databases? Join us for this panel discussion and learn more about how organizations are deploying different databases like PostgreSQL and Cassandra on Kubernetes, what are the benefits of running databases on Kubernetes, and how the ecosystem is working towards making these things boring, so you can focus on your applications! We will have an interactive discussion with the hosts and guests of the Kubernetes Bytes podcast, and open it up to the audience to ask questions and learn more about the what, why, and how about Databases on Kubernetes!


Register for the in-person or virtual experience today
