“Write once, run anywhere” has been the Java motto since forever! And what better way to achieve that if not with the use of containers? But we all know that containerizing Java applications is anything but simple. Jib is an open-source Java containerizer from Google that aspires to make a difference!
As severless computing and container technology reach their peak, Cloud Foundry explores what IT decision makers have to say. Let’s explore the data and see what the numbers have to say about these computing trends.
The quarterly report on developer trends in the cloud by DigitalOcean, Currents, is out! What do containers usage and serverless computing adoption look like? Here, we have a look at some of the highlights and interesting facts of the Currents report.
The growing popularity of Docker and Kubernetes has driven containerization to go mainstream and with good reason. However, even with the many benefits offered by containers, there are still issues to overcome when it comes to delivering truly stateful applications that need persistent data.
Kubernetes 1.11 is here! This is the second release for the container orchestration manager for 2018 and it’s a big one, with improve scalability, flexibility, and all-around performance enhancements. Two of the biggest changes include IPVS-based in-cluster service load balancing and CoreDNS.
Containers and container orchestration systems are a very important part of the infrastructure for the organizations that work according to agile ways and deploy continuous integration. But how secure are these systems? The Lacework research team conducted a study to determine the security status of containers and here are the results.
Containers have become a necessary part of modern technology. But what are they and what kinds of security concerns should organizations be aware of? In this article, Rami Sass explores the basics of containers as well as the future of DevSecOps.
In the “orchestration war” between Docker, Swarm, and Kubernetes, it seems like Kubernetes is the clear winner. In this interview, Ramon Guiu, Vice President of product management at New Relic, talks about the reasons why. He discusses how to avoid problems with building a container ecosystem and how to make it run safe and smooth.
Philipp Garbe, Docker Captain and Lead Platform Engineer at Scout24, gives us an overview of ECS and all the other services you will need in order to run your containers in production.
“If I put a malfunctioning application in a container, I get just that: a malfunctioning application in a container”. Michael Bruns shows us how we can develop and operate a stable microservice architecture without the need to put everything into containers.

No Docker daemon? Working in a Kubernetes cluster? No problem. Kaniko, a new open source tool, allows developers to build an image in a container without needing any special privileges.
Containers are definitely not a panacea for all problems and sometimes they are even more of a burden than an advantage for a project. In our interview at DevOpsCon 2017 in Munich, Michael Bruns, software developer and architect at inovex, explains which projects can really benefit from Docker, Kubernetes and the like. He also reveals to us, whether serverless will soon replace container technology.
