Software vendors line up Kubernetes tasting menu for devops

Source – theregister.co.uk With the advent of KubCon and CloudNativeCon in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, assorted enterprise vendors have chosen this week to flog their latest devops-oriented wares, before the impending holiday torpor leaves IT folks too distracted, weary or inebriated to care. In the interest of jargon pruning and hype deflation, we present a few such developments here in brief as a sort of Kubernetes-flavored turducken. Kubernetes – a nod to Greeks, container-bearing ships, and those who steer them – is

Amazon jumps on Kubernetes bandwagon

Source – zdnet.com Kubernetes is the most popular open-source container manager. It’s been officially supported on every cloud platform you’ve ever heard of… with one big exception: Amazon Web Service (AWS). Now, AWS has got on board the Kubernetes bandwagon as well by joining the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a platinum member. With this move, all five of the largest cloud providers — AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Bluemix, and Alibaba Cloud — are CNCF members. Kubernetes has been validated as the DevOps tool for cloud native computing and

Continuous Delivery with Kubernetes the Hard Way

Source – infoq.com This post will discuss how to build up an architecture for continuous delivery from simple to complicated. At each point we’ll see the limitations of the simpler approaches, and justify adding complexity and/or refactoring the architecture. The ultimate approach described here is the approach that the Weaveworks team has found works best for them. Continuous delivery Continuous delivery is when software is produced in a way that allows it to be released little and often, rather than in

4 cool Kubernetes tools for mastering clusters

Source – infoworld.com Kubernetes, the cluster manager for containerized workloads, is a hit. With the Big K doing the heavy lifting in load balancing and job management, you can turn your attention to other matters. But like nearly every open source project, it’s a work in progress, and almost everyone who works with Kubernetes will find shortcomings, rough spots, and annoyances. Here are four projects that lighten the load that comes with administering a Kubernetes cluster. Kube-applier A key part of

Container orchestration primer: Explaining Docker swarm mode, Kubernetes and Mesosphere

Source:- insights.hpe.com Containers, a lightweight way to virtualize applications, are an important element of any DevOps plan. But how are you going to manage all of those containers? Container orchestration programs—Kubernetes, Mesosphere Marathon, and Docker swarm mode—make it possible to manage containers without tearing your hair out. Before jumping into those, let’s review the basics. Containers are the fastest growing cloud-enabling technology, according to 451 Research, primarily because containers use far fewer system resources than do virtual machines (VMs). After

Learn How Continuous Delivery is Implemented in Kubernetes

Source:- 126kr.com In a modern development environment, continuous integration and development are central to the success of a software development project. To be successful when using a continuous delivery approach, you need to avail short lived development and test environments for handling code changes. The ability to quickly create and terminate containers in Docker and Kubernetes is a feature that very well supports the continuous delivery model. In this tutorial, we will abbreviate continuous development/continuous integration as CI/CD. As a developer,

4 reasons you should use Kubernetes

Source:- infoworld.com As most modern software developers can attest, containers have provided us with dramatically more flexibility for running cloud-native applications on physical and virtual infrastructure. Containers package up the services comprising an application and make them portable across different compute environments, for both dev/test and production use. With containers, it’s easy to quickly ramp application instances to match spikes in demand. And because containers draw on resources of the host OS, they are much lighter weight than virtual machines.

Kubernetes is now generally available on Azure Container Service

Source:- infoworld.com Microsoft and Google don’t get along all that often, but they do agree on using Kubernetes for cloud container orchestration. Kubernetes is generally available for use with Azure Container Service, Microsoft’s managed cloud container hosting offering, as of Tuesday. ACS support for Kubernetes comes along with the service’s existing support for the Apache Mesos-based DC/OS and Docker Swarm. Containers provide an isolated, portable and consistent runtime for applications that’s particularly well-suited to deployment in a cloud environment. Orchestrators

Docker Tools that Developers will Find Useful

Source:- opensourceforu.com Docker allows IT departments to focus on applications, not virtual machines, as a standard unit of production. Looking at recent trends, there have been many projects created by the Docker community that have advanced the developer experience. This article takes a look at a few Docker tools that may be useful for developers. Docker was introduced to the world with no prior announcement, by Solomon Hykes, founder and CEO of dotCloud at the Python Developers Conference in Santa Clara,
