Joyent, a unit of Samsung that provides cloud computing services, is teaming up with LunchBadger to deploy a serverless computing framework based on an event-driven architecture on top of Kubernetes clusters. LunchBadger CEO Al Tsang says the company has developed a shim framework that can support multiple open source serverless computing frameworks.
Microservices enabled by containers are about to radically transform how enterprise software is consumed, and one of the first examples is a major revision of integrated platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) environments developed by Informatica. Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services, unveiled today, is a redesigned implementation of the companys iPaaS software that makes it much simpler for IT organizations to only consume specific modular services rather than the entire iPaaS platform, says Ronen Schwartz, senior vice president and general manager, big data, cloud and data integration at Informatica.
Service meshes are the latest, greatest thing in the microservices and containers world. Lets take a look at what a service mesh is and how they are being used to improve microservices architectures.
Provisioning a Kubernetes cluster has become a lot easier in recent months, but the daily management of the platform still can be challenging. To make it simpler to manage a Kubernetes cluster, Canonical has teamed up with Rancher Labs to deliver a Cloud Native Platform due out in early 2018.
As IT organizations begin to deploy microservices at scale on Kubernetes clusters, many of them are discovering the need for a service mesh to more easily manage them. Buoyant, at the Kubecon + CloudNativeCon 2017 conference, unveiled what it describes as the first service mesh for Kubernetes clusters.
The OpenStack Foundation announced this week that it is leading an effort to combine two existing open source projects to create a Kata class of containers that can be deployed on a lightweight version of the Kernel-based virtual machine. OpenStack Foundation COO Mark Collier says Kata Containers enable each container to have access to its own kernel to provide the same level of isolation that containers enjoy on existing virtual machines, without having to execute any extra code that traditional virtual machines require to support entire operating systems.
Devops is becoming mainstreamI know because I am contacted almost daily with unsolicited sales emails from companies trying to partner with me to implement devops. Many companies beginning their devops transition still have ingrained old-school processes, along with legacy QA and development teams.
Microsoft has brought several third-party popular platforms to its Azure cloud aimed at developers and data analysts. The new Azure capabilities include:
Companies are leveraging containers on a massive scale to rapidly package and deliver software applications. But it can be difficult for organizations to get a clear understanding of the components and dependencies in their container images.
