Kubernetes: Everything you need to know

Source:-enterprisersproject.com What is Kubernetes? What is Kubernetes and what does it have to do with containers? Where did this unusual word come from? The agreed-upon origin is from the Greek, meaning “helmsman” or “sailing master.” Here’s how Red Hat technology evangelist Gordon Haff explains Kubernetes in his book, “From Software and Vats to Programs and Apps,” co-authored with Red Hat Senior Distinguished Engineer William Henry: Kubernetes eliminates many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized applications. “Kubernetes,

Is Kubernetes becoming the driving force of enterprise IT?

Source:-information-age.com Now and again, enterprise technology comes along that seems like a beautifully simple solution to a complicated problem. Take Kubernetes—the open source platform that automates Linux container operations, eliminating many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerised applications. It is exciting to see how Kubernetes is evolving to meet the challenge of running mission critical workloads at scale. Container use will only continue to increase. A recent Red Hat survey found that 62% of organisations have

Ensuring a Smooth Kubernetes Deployment

Source:-containerjournal.com It’s not hyperbole to say that Kubernetes is a game-changer for developers and DevOps teams. At full power, it has the capacity to impart significant efficiency and stability that has a tangible impact on a company’s bottom line. However, as is often said, “Nothing good ever came easy.” Many of us know that Kubernetes is inherently complex. Unfortunately, this complexity can lead to oversights that can cause major security issues. Thankfully, with the right procedures in place and a

How DevOps has evolved since 2012

Source:-techrepublic.com O’Reilly’s What is DevOps?: Infrastructure as Code published almost eight years ago. A programming expert reflects on which predictions by the author came true and what’s coming next. When Mike Loukides published the long essay What is DevOps? in book form for O’Reilly Media, he gave it a subtitle that would become well-known: Infrastructure as Code. That essay, just 20 pages long, proposed a few key things: Infrastructure moves into the code. The systems that run the software, which

Kubernetes 101: Tips and tricks to maximise container investment

Source:-itbrief.com.au According to a Gartner survey, more than 50% of global organisations will be running containerised applications in production by 2020. This is a significant increase from the less than 20% reported in 2017. If an organisation uses containers, it probably also uses an orchestration tool like Kubernetes. While containers can help teams gain agility, flexibility and ultimately increase delivery speed, they also create a lot of complexity. Because of this, it is important that DevOps teams have monitoring in place

Best practices for threat modeling service mesh, microservices

Source:-searchsecurity.techtarget.com Security professionals have probably noticed that containers, such as Docker and Rkt, as well as container orchestration — for example, Kubernetes — are gaining traction in a big way. This is because, as developers have discovered the power of microservices, they are moving away from monolithic or tightly coupled component design architectures and moving instead toward more decoupled models — i.e., models where REST is used as a layer of abstraction. In microservices and service mesh environments, communications don’t follow static
