Kubernetes cloud computing bug could rain data for attackers

Source- nakedsecurity.sophos.com Kubernetes, a tool that powers much modern native cloud infrastructure, just got its first big security bug – and it’s a mammoth one. The flaw could give an attacker unfettered access to the software applications that rely on the tool to operate. Kubernetes is a software tool that manages large numbers of containers. These are similar to the virtual machines that run multiple operating systems on the same physical computer, but they have a key difference. Instead of

Kubernetes 1.13 Improves Cloud-Native Storage Features

Source- eweek.com Kubernetes 1.13 was released on Dec. 3, providing users of the popular open-source cloud-native platform with new features to help make it easier to manage, deploy and operate containers in production. Among the features that are now generally available in Kubernetes 1.13 is the kubeadmin administration tool for configuring services. The Container Storage Interface (CSI) is another new generally available feature providing a stable abstraction layer for different third-party storage plugins. Additionally, with Kubernetes 1.13, CoreDNS is now the

Building the hybrid serverless multiclouds of the future

Source- siliconangle.com Developers frequently compose solutions as patterns that hybridize different approaches to developing, hosting and managing application resources. Any solution pattern may be hybridized, with the approach usually contingent on the developer having access to an abstraction layer designed to enable the complex application environment of interest. In cloud computing, we increasingly see hybridization in the form of public and private clouds interoperating to handle transactions, analytics, integration and other complex workloads. At the platform-as-a-service level, we also see it

Docker And Kubernetes: Furthering The Goals Of DevOps Automation

Source- forbes.com Containers are a hot topic, yet production usage remains low, according to Gartner, with most enterprise container adoptions in an early phase. A recent survey by Diamanti backs this up, finding that while almost half (47%) of the IT leaders it surveyed plan to deploy containers in a production environment, only 12% have already done so.   Despite this low adoption, the hype is for good reason, as containers can make a significant impact on development and production environments, infrastructure cost and time

Spinnaker is the next big open source project to watch

Source- techcrunch.com Spinnaker is an open source continuous delivery (CD) platform from Netflix and Google, though it now also has the backing of other major software companies. Spinnaker  1.0 launched last July, so it’s not the newest kid on the block, but the service is slowly but surely gaining momentum now, with users that include Target, Adobe, Daimler and Capital One, as well as a growing ecosystem of vendors who support it. Today, after a few years of working on the project without any

Container security starts with Kubernetes

Source- jaxenter.com The rise of container technology is undeniable, and it’s not hard to see why. By offering greater DevOps flexibility as well as an optimized build/deployment pipeline, container technology is allowing companies and their development teams to build faster, deploy software more efficiently and operate at an unprecedented scale. Gartner estimates that 50 per cent of companies will leverage container technology by 2020, up from roughly 20 per cent in 2017, and this momentum is sure to continue to rapidly increase. In

Container-Based Database Platforms: Fueling DevOps

Source- containerjournal.com Database systems traditionally have relied on rather complex, OS-specific clustering technology to provide high availability. Depending on vendor and configuration, these technologies included shared storage devices, transaction-based replication, storage replication or some combination thereof. In many cases, these configurations required complex storage and network configuration supported by multiple teams at significant cost. As the use of virtualization became more widespread, virtual machines offered a degree of high availability, and many hypervisors offered some form of disaster recovery provided

Linux Foundation helps blend automation and cloud-native communities

Source- fiercetelecom.com The Linux Foundation announced a deeper collaboration between telecom and cloud industry leaders that should lead to better cloud-native use cases. The Linux Foundation’s LF Networking (LFN) is formally working with the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to improve the migration of virtual network function (VNFs) to cloud-native network functions (CNFs). ONAP, which is a part of LF Networking, and CNCF’s Kubernetes are coming together as operators start to look at how VNFs could evolve into CNFs running

How containers and Kubernetes change deployment and DevOps

Source – techtarget.com Containers, a technology that easily packages multicomponent applications for deployment, are well-suited for enterprises. Those same organizations likely find Kubernetes even more exciting. Kubernetes is an orchestration tool that extends — and at the same time simplifies — management of containers to support large, distributed resource pools and application component redeployments. The proliferation of containers and Kubernetes has some enterprises wondering if these technologies will change DevOps, in particular the tools organizations use to standardize and automate configurations. Kubernetes

Kubernetes Jenkins Master-Slave: Scaling the Scalability Issue

Source – devops.com Dell and many other companies use Jenkins as a CI/CD tool and builds happen with substantial code bases that run 365 days in parallel. Generally, you may not have as much code to build, but the slave that’s created during the build process is in an upstate even after the build is completed. That can result in higher cost, higher unnecessary resource utilization and a more complex delivery pipeline. Is there the process to overcome this situation? Yes.
