Scaling Kubernetes across BlackRock’s Aladdin Platform

BlackRock has always pushed technical boundaries and innovation to deliver asset management capabilities to clients through the investment and risk management platform, Aladdin. As part of this journey, we realized the power of container-native development and landed on Kubernetes as a way to abstract infrastructure concerns from the application tier and future proof the platform for the cloud. In this talk, Ryan and Mike will discuss BlackRock’s journey releasing Kubernetes, partnering with external GitOps practitioners, and building BlackRock’s Aladdin Kubernetes Platform.
