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.
The first Linkerd release of the year has arrived—version 2.7 provides Vault and cert-manager integration, dashboard updates, breaking changes, bug fixes and more. Let’s take a closer look at what the latest version of the Kubernetes service mesh has to offer.

Ridesharing company Lyft has open sourced Flyte, its distributed processing platform for machine learning workflows that is being used in different Lyft teams including Pricing, Data Science and Fraud. Let’s see how the open source tool can benefit ML workflows.
Both machine learning and the use of cloud-native environments built on containers are becoming more commonplace in the enterprise. Luckily, Kubernetes and containers are a perfect match for ML. The cloud-native model has many advantages that can be brought over to machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence for more effective, practical business strategies.
Kuma is a new universal open source control plane for service mesh and microservices. It is built upon Envoy and can operate natively across modern Kubernetes. With Kuma, the main goal is to reduce the code that has to be written and maintained to build reliable architectures. Read the introduction to Kuma to learn more about it and how it operates.
Even the best Kubernetes management solution cannot save you from bad infrastructure provisioning. You can’t achieve true self-healing applications if you don’t have a self-healing infrastructure. Find out what self-healing Kubernetes can and cannot do and how Kublr provides fully self-healing clusters, including master and worker nodes.
