Kubernetes’s explosive growth has come with attention paid to security and stability

growth-concept

You may have noticed I write a lot about Kubernetes, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) sponsored open-source container orchestration program. That’s because I have no choice in the matter. Just like Docker turned containers into the way to run server applications, Kubernetes quickly overcame its rivals and became the way to manage containers.  Practically […]

Project Pacific: VMware’s new road from vSphere to the Kubernetes-based hybrid cloud

Pacific-Coast-Highway

Many people use VMware’s vSphere. How many? VMware claims there are over 70 million vSphere workloads running out there at any given time. That’s a lot of people running mainline business applications on VMware’s signature virtualization platform. That’s great, but how do you move those workloads to a cloud? VMware has an answer, re-engineer vSphere […]

Clouds and containers are not all about what’s new and hot

clouds-in-the-sky

This past Spring at London’s OpenInfra Days UK 2019, Mark Shuttleworth, executive chairman at Canonical and creator of Ubuntu Linux, said in a keynote, “I believe OpenStack is important. It’s become trendy to say: ‘I’m skipping OpenStack and going straight to Kubernetes.’ It’s like skipping salad and going straight to steam – they both solve […]

In arrivo i 5 principali sviluppi del cloud

Mettetevi comodi, perchè presto vi porteremo in alcuni posti molto interessanti grazie al cloud. L’Hybrid Cloud decolla Per molto tempo  il cloud ibrido non è andato da nessuna parte. Questo perché non era facile integrare cloud privati ​​e pubblici. Poi è arrivato Kubernetes e tutto è cambiato. Mediante Kubernetes, fino a quando una piattaforma cloud […]

Ignore the hysteria, Cloud Foundry is just fine

stay-calm-at-work-desk

Recently, Rishidot analyst Krishnan Subramanian proclaimed the Cloud Foundry, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud, had met its demise as a standalone platform. Really? That’s news to me, and I cover Cloud Foundry like paint. What got Subramanian so frazzled was Cloud Foundry started offering Docker in place of its own container runtime, Garden. And at the recent […]

Los cinco grandes desarrollos en la nube

Abróchense los cinturones. Vamos a viajar a lugares interesantes en la nube, en poco tiempo. La nube híbrida despega Durante años, la nube híbrida no se movió a ningún lado. El motivo es que no resultaba fácil integrar nubes públicas y privadas. Entonces, llegó Kubernetes y todo cambió. Con Kubernetes, siempre y cuando una plataforma […]

CoreDNS: The DNS for cloud-native computing

DNS

I have a t-shirt which reads, from top to bottom: “It’s not DNS. There’s no way it’s DNS. It was DNS!” As every sysadmin knows, all too many network problems boil down to a Domain Name System (DNS) blunder. That’s already annoying, but when you have to deal with a DNS headache with fast-moving containers […]

The top five upcoming cloud developments

five-clouds

Strap yourself in. We’ll be going to some interesting places with the cloud in the near future. 1. Hybrid Cloud Takes Off For the longest time, the hybrid cloud didn’t really go much of anywhere. That’s because it wasn’t easy to integrate private and public clouds. Then, along came Kubernetes and everything changed. With Kubernetes, […]

Four recent trends pointing to big things ahead for the hybrid cloud

hybrid-cloud-trending-up

The cloud has fundamentally changed. We had been focusing on the rise of the public cloud, but these last several months have showed us that the hybrid cloud may yet prove to be the real cloud IT model moving forward. As evidence, consider these four recent developments: The Rise of Kubernetes Kubernetes took over as […]

The five reasons Kubernetes won the container orchestration wars

five-stars

When I first looked at Kubernetes and the other cloud container orchestration programs, I knew Kubernetes would be the winner. No, ifs, ands or buts about it. The program was clearly so much better than its competition. Today, even its rivals support it. Why? Kubernetes enables you to run clusters of containers at scale on […]
