Kubernetes has spearheaded the revolution in container management in the past few years. But this open source project almost never saw the light of day. How did this container manager go from a top secret at Google to one of the biggest projects on GitHub in less than five years?
The rapid evolution of cloud development technologies is enabling enterprises to deploy services more reliably, scale them, and change them more rapidly. At the same time, failure to keep up with this evolution can rapidly lead to ending up with a brittle cloud implementation. In this article, John Mathon talks about the transformational cloud technology developments enterprises cannot afford to ignore.
Last week, the Docker team announced some amazing news for all you Kubernetes enthusiasts out there. Kubernetes orchestration in now part of the Stable release channels for Docker Desktop! But having in mind Kubernetes’ relative dominance during the last few months, is it maybe time for some speculative analysis?
Not one, not two, but four reports so far have shown serverless computing displaying an incredible growth rate, becoming one of the hottest cloud-related technologies. Here, we have a closer look at the 2018 State of the Cloud report by Cloudability and we engage in a short discussion on serverless’ future prospects.
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.
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.
The 2018 Node.js User Survey results are online! The survey provides data on a wide range of topics with extremely interesting results. What is the expected change in the use of Node.js? What are the most used languages in addition to Node? Let’s find out!
The new Flink stable release is here and makes streaming and batch data processing super smooth. The 1.5.0 release comes stuffed with a number of new features and major improvements.
Every Monday we take a step back and take a look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Another week past, full of amazing tech news! The milestone event of Kubernetes general integration with containerd; the release of Apache Wicket 8; the 10.8 GitLab release and more!
“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.
The alpha version of the Kubernetes containerd integration was introduced in November 2017 and now a very important milestone has been achieved: the integration with containerd is generally available. Let’s have a look at what this means for us!
The latest edition of ThoughtWorks’ Technology Radar has highlighted what most of us already know: you absolutely need to adopt Kotlin and Kubernetes but generic cloud usage should be avoided at all costs.
What is the driver behind the growing interest in using Kubernetes for data science and machine learning applications? Terry Shea of Kublr explains why you shouldn’t avoid Kubernetes if you have ML and data science projects.
