Ray Tsang on Tools and Best Practices for Kubernetes Adoption

Source:-infoq.com Ray Tsang, developer advocate at Google, spoke last week at SpringOne Platform 2019 Conference about the tools and best practices developers can use in Kubernetes adoption in their organizations. Containerization and adopting container platforms like Kubernetes has been a challenge for application developers. Building container images involves Dockerfiles, which are cumbersome and error-prone when creating and maintaining them in the long run. Also, IDE tools’ support for developing and maintaining container based applications has been poor. This typically slows down the entire software development cycle. The Spring Cloud Kubernetes project provides

Red Hat Sprucing OpenShift for Network Functions on Kubernetes

Source:-lightreading Red Hat is planning to make OpenShift a better home for the network control plane, running both containerized and virtualized network functions (CNFs and VNFs) on the Kubernetes platform. “Today these are two separate products from Red Hat,” Azhar Sayeed, Red Hat chief architect, telecommunications, tells Light Reading. Red Hat OpenStack runs VNFs, and OpenShift is Red Hat’s primary platform for containerized applications and microservices. Red Hat is working to bring those together. “From our perspective, it’s about preparing

Kubernetes and multi-cloud: How to monitor your modern applications effectively

Source:- cloudcomputing-news.net Many companies are moving to a new way of delivering service to customers based on microservices. Rather than building huge and monolithic apps, microservices uses small and interconnected application components instead. These modern applications tend to be easier to update and expand than those traditional applications, as replacement services can be slotted in using APIs rather than requiring full rewrites. To support this design approach, developers are making more use of cloud and containers. According to the Continuous Intelligence

Kubernetes on Windows nodes hits GA in Rancher, Amazon EKS

Source:- searchitoperations.techtarget.com Kubernetes on Windows nodes is now fully supported by two container management vendors, broadening the platform’s reach into legacy enterprise applications. Rancher 2.3 and Amazon EKS were first to roll out support for Windows nodes in Kubernetes clusters this week, as well as mixed-mode clusters that encompass both Windows and Linux nodes. Most Kubernetes platforms already supported Windows containers but running on Linux host nodes; in all cases, including upstream Kubernetes, the Kubernetes master node still runs on Linux. However,

AWS billing is broken and Kubernetes won’t last, says irreverent economist Corey Quinn

Source:- techrepublic.com The Duckbill Group’s outspoken co-founder Corey Quinn shares his thoughts on the cloud industry, Walmart’s paranoia about AWS, why Docker is nearly out of money, and why Larry Ellison “is not people.” There are fairly few people watching the clouds, so to speak, that set off fire alarms whenever they take to Twitter. Corey Quinn, self-styled cloud economist at The Duckbill Group, is perhaps the most visible. Quinn’s Twitter antics pull no punches. He’s very upfront about his views and presents
