Codefresh at the Helm Summit 2018 conference this week unfurled a managed service that combines the open source Helm tools for deploying microservices based on containers with testing tools that validate those microservices before being deployed in a production environment. Dan Garfield, vice president of marketing at Codefresh, says Helm Repositories, now available in beta, provides a means through which DevOps teams can make sure the applications being deployed on top of Kubernetes clusters using Helm software are validated using ephemeral Codefresh testing tools before being deployed.
HyperGrid has updated its software-defined platform for managing a modern IT environment based on Docker containers has been updated to include a recommendation engine that determines where to optimally place workloads. HyperCloud 5.0 provides a complete platform for managing both microservices based on containers as well as legacy applications that have been encapsulated in a container.
Crypto-mining script kiddies are coming to steal your Docker environment. Thats the warning from Aqua Security, which has published a report about attacks against containerized environments by people who want to mine cryptocurrency such as bitcoin.
Tools play a pivotal role in the creation of any product, whether its a consumer good built through a manufacturing process or an app developed through a software delivery life cycle. The tools you use to build and create our products shape the overall value that they deliver to customers.

Just about every serverless computing framework of any consequence make use of containers as the enabling technology on which an event-driven architecture gets built. To help IT organizations get a better handle on when to deploy serverless computing frameworks, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation this week released a Serverless Working Group white paper.
Oracle used its Oracle CloudWorld event this week to demonstrate how it enables DevOps teams to consistently replicate Kubernetes clusters across a continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline spanning a hybrid cloud computing environment. As part of this demonstration, the company showed how instances of its WebLogic application server or Oracle or MySQL databases now can be deployed as Docker containers on top of a Kubernetes cluster.
DevOps and containers are no longer cutting-edge concepts that will shape the future of how applications are developed, deployed, monitored and maintained. That ship has sailed.
