Cloud native computing grows by 200 percent

potted-plants-forming-growth-arrow

Over the last few years the way you moved applications from your data center to the cloud was lift-and-shift, refactor, or migrate to containers. The latter has gotten a kick in the pants as cloud-native techniques such as serverless computing and microservices have joined forces with containers. Still unsure what I’m talking about?

Kubernetes is free of Google’s purse strings

escape-from-bird-cage

Kubernetes rules cloud-container orchestration. We all know that. You may also know that Google created Kubernetes and then spun the project’s management off to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in 2015. But what you probably don’t know is that Google still controls all the computing resources used to manage and test Kubernetes and its […]

L’offre Azure Container Instances (ACI) débarque !

J’aime les conteneurs. Vous aimez les conteneurs. Nous aimons tous les conteneurs. Toutefois, si vous avez déjà essayé d’exécuter vos programmes sur Microsoft Azure, vous avez certainement dû rencontrer un problème. Il n’était pas facile d’exécuter des conteneurs de type Docker, une technologie native de Linux, sur Azure. Le correctif aurait pu être fait, mais […]

I love containers. You love containers. We all love containers. But, if you ever tried to run your programs on Microsoft Azure, you had a problem. It wasn’t easy to run Docker-style containers, a native Linux technology, on Azure. Oh, it could be done, but it was work. Now, with Azure Container Instances (ACI), it’s […]

Docker embraces Kubernetes with Docker Enterprise 2.0

two-flowers-beneath-clouds

It turns out Docker was serious about adopting Kubernetes. Docker has its own container orchestration program, Docker Swarm mode, but the company saw the wind was blowing towards Kubernetes so it added Kubernetes to its selection of orchestration tools in October 2017. But, there’s adoption and then there’s “Adoption.” With the first you announce you’ll […]

Kubernetes is the number one container orchestration program, but still faces challenges

leap

Kubernetes is the top cloud container orchestration program, but that doesn’t mean it’s home free. A Platform 9 survey at the most recent KubeCon in Austin identified both strong and weak points for the program. First, the good news: Kubernetes is gaining new users and developers rapidly. KubeCon attendance grew 400% from 2016 to 2017. […]

Kubeflow: Machine learning comes to Kubernetes

CPU

As you probably know, Kubernetes has become the default container cloud orchestration system. What you may not know is that developers have been using Kubernetes as the foundation for other software stacks. With the newest of these, Kubeflow, machine learning (ML) has come to Kubernetes. David Aronchick and Jeremy Lewi, engineers on the Kubeflow project, […]

Amazon joins the rush to Kubernetes

road-race

Was it really only just over a month ago that I wrote, “The only real question is not if AWS will also fully invest in Kubernetes now that Docker has taken the plunge but when? Why, yes, yes it was. And guess what? As predicted by yours truly, AWS CEO Andy Jassy announced the launch […]
