Over the past twenty years, there have been several big trends in distributed computing. Today, we have more developers using microservices designs to decompose applications into smaller and more manageable units. Apache Cassandra was built for cloud data and is now becoming the choice of developers for cloud native applications.
We spoke with Daniel Bryant about how API gateways have evolved, what impact microservices has on APIs, service meshes, and more. What are the biggest challenges when deploying and working with API gateways and what helpful tips does Daniel Bryant offer?
Kubernetes plugins or extensions are an essential part of any Kubernetes stack that help address various needs and augment your experience. Here are six extension categories to consider as you embark on your Kubernetes journey.
Containerization and Kubernetes enable organizations to drive computing everywhere and digital transformation at scale. This article by Peter Smails, CMO of Rancher Labs, examines practical challenges and real-world benefits.
Lens is an open source IDE for taking control of Kubernetes clusters. We spoke to the developer of Lens, Miska Kaipiainen, to find out about why he created it, what its features are and how to get it.
Kubernetes orchestrates the relationships between all of the containers in a system, such as communication and resource allocation. This article by Markus Eisele examines how to become Kubernetes-native and much more flexible.
The 12 Factor App approach is for defining a clean contract between the application and running environment. The application and running environment can focus on their own domain and will not step into each others’ toes.
Red Hat’s OpenShift 4.4 is here. This update builds upon Kubernetes 1.17 and aims to improve the developer’s experience. It includes new developer previews of upcoming features and some performance upgrades.
A pod is the smallest unit in Kubernetes. It is a container for containers that are running in a shared context like the same host, same IP etc. The status of the containers can be checked by so called probes. The respective results are then aggregated to the status of a pod by Kubernetes. A probe is a diagnosis that is made regularly by the Kubelet on a running container. To perform this diagnosis, the Kubelet calls an endpoint implemented by the container process or executes a binary in a container. The Kubelet can perform and react to three types of probes: Readiness, Liveness and Startup.
Time to round up some of the coolest, most interesting, and best open source GitHub repositories that we’ve seen this month. In March 2020, we took a look at a mathematical animation engine, an experimental toolchain from Facebook, and a Kubernetes IDE.
There’s no denying the vast popularity of Kubernetes. The newest version is here with the release of Kubernetes 1.18. In total, it includes 38 enhancements, many of which have graduated to GA. Let’s take a look at what this powerhouse brings to the table with version 1.18.
According to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Kubernetes usage has increased dramatically. It’s clear that containers in production are becoming the new standard. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation released the results of its 2019 survey. See what other insights they revealed about serverless technologies, service mesh tech, and more.
Kubeflow, the open source machine learning solution for Kubernetes, reached a new milestone. Version 1.0 graduates several core applications for developing, training, and deploying models on Kubernetes. Have a look at what applications have been graduated, and how Kubeflow can help you create and deploy Jupyter notebooks and more.
Apache Flink has been released in version 1.10.0. More than 200 contributors worked on this release, and they added several new features including updates for PyFlink, a beta version of native Kubernetes integration, managed memory extension, and RocksDB updates.
