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.
Regardless of where you stand with your digital transformation project(s), are you prepared to explain how machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) will transform your organization? For the vast majority of IT staffers, the answer will be range from kind of maybe to thats years away, so lets talk later.
VMware, in collaboration with sister company Pivotal, announced this week the general availability of the Kubernetes instance developed by the two companies. Paul Dul, vice president of product management for cloud native applications at VMware, says the Pivotal Container Service (PKS) is much more than a curated instance of Kubernetes.
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.
Many people believe that workloads in the cloud always perform better because public clouds have access to an almost unlimited amount of resources. Although you can provision the resources you needand even use serverless computing so the allocation of resources is done for youthe fact is that having the right amount of resources is only half the battle.
Hybrid IT wasnt planned. It has arisen to challenge the orthodoxy of standardization in the IT organization, as businesses have shifted to competing in the digital economy.
The Kubernetes container platform is largely still a work in progress, so naturally theres a need for a lot of support from external service providers. Most internal IT organizations, however, still dont have much in the way of Kubernetes expertise.
