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.

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.

Kubernetes as the new application server, and more

Source – zdnet.com Kubernetes already has a good reputation as an orchestration platform for containers and microservices, but one developer advocate is taking things a step further, observing that it make take the place of many application servers. Kubernetes and related projects, such as OpenShift and Istio, “provide the non-functional requirements that used to be part of an application server,” states Rafael Benevides, director of developer experience at Red Hat. He notes in a recent DZone post that the combination of Kubernetes, OpenShift and Istio, which are

The Importance of Cloud Automation and How to Get There

Source – solutionsreview.com Automation is driving today’s enterprise technology advancements. Some forms of automation can be relatively easy to manage on your own, but for most situations, getting a tool or service is the right choice. With how fast technologies and processes are changing, automating repetitive tasks allows teams to learn new methods and practices. Automation frees up teams throughout the IT space to work on more pressing projects. The importance of cloud automation is due to the increasingly agile IT

How Important Is Open Source for DevOps, Really?

Source – devops.com Depending on your perspective, you might believe that DevOps and open source go hand in hand. Or you may think that, quite to the contrary, the two have little to do with each other. There are good arguments to be made for both interpretations. Let’s explore these two ways of thinking about the relationship between DevOps and open source. Match Made in Heaven? In certain respects, the two share a great deal of core philosophical overlap. Both movements
