Adopting any open-source project comes with a cost – but that doesn’t mean that a vendor offering is the best way to reduce that cost! It’s definitely possible to run pure open-source projects while keeping a small operational footprint, even when you also contribute upstream to help the community. In this talk, Adidas engineers Daniel Baeyens and Miguel Allende will share how their team of just five people integrated Linkerd into their stack within timeframe. They made it keeping costs down while simultaneously meeting corporate needs and integrating their existing tools from VictoriaMetrics, Grafana, and Venafi around observability, reliability, and security. You’ll learn what went well, what challenges they faced, and why maintaining a healthy relationship with the community and the project maintainers has been a key to success when bringing Linkerd to one of the world’s leading sports brands.
