It brings together thousands of developers, engineers, and enthusiasts from around the globe to discuss, collaborate, and innovate in the cloud-native ecosystem

Nirmata’s presence at this conference is set to be an exciting one as we have the unwavering commitment to cloud-native excellence and our team has been helping several businesses across the globe navigate and simplify the complexities of modern infrastructure. As creators of Kyverno, the Kubernetes-native policy engine, we look forward to discussing the advances that the community has made in the recent releases, and would love to learn more about how you are using or planning to use Kyverno.


About Kyverno

Kyverno has been referred to as a Kubernetes swiss-army-knife, as it fills the gap in the workflows by allowing companies to apply complex configurations and customizations which are beyond the native capabilities of Kubernetes operators. 

With over 2.5 billion image pulls, 4.5k GitHub stars, and so many enhancements and new features including Kyverno CLI, Kyverno Playground, policy exceptions etc., Kyverno has become the de facto solution for Kubernetes policy enforcement and management for platform  teams today. 

Several large companies across the globe are using Kyverno to secure their production environments. If you are curious to know more about Kyverno, you can check out this interesting blog regarding its evolution.
