Im sure its not news to you that containers are a hot concept. If you were looking for proof or validation of that fact, though, look no further than the news that Microsoft is acquiring Deisa company focused on helping customers build and maintain container ecosystems.
Blue Ocean, a reimagined user interface for the Jenkins continuous delivery platform, makes its official debut Wednesday as a free, open source plugin. The interface helps make software development more accessible, said Tyler Croy, director of evangelism at Jenkins solutions provider CloudBees and a board member and contributor on the Jenkins project.
To explore advanced development practices, why not turn to dynamic tech companies tasked with delivering sought-after software for the industry itself? That was the thinking, anyway, when I recently agreed to moderate a panel hosted by the QA company Rainforest that featured representatives of Atlassian, GitHub, HackerOne, and Rainforest.
Developers keep finding new ways to deliver higher-quality software fasterand automation is playing a big part in that transformation. But to avoid introducing new flaws at that same hurry-up pace, security needs to beintegrated directly into the development lifecycle.
For cloud people like meIm the CTO at Cloud Foundry Foundationcontainers are a constant conversation topic. The main issue is how to embrace this new application architecture and put containerized workloads into production use in the best way possible, keeping the agility promise to the Devs that Ops can make it all workat scale.
Devops isnt simply transforming how developers and operations work together to deliver better software faster, it is also changing how developers view application security. A recent survey from software automation and security company Sonatype found that devops teams are increasingly adopting security automation to create better and safer software.
Amir Jerbi is CTO of Aqua Security. From development to deployment, one the most distinctive traits of using containers is speed.
Linux container technology permits the subdivision of compute resources in ways similar to virtualization, but without the overhead of managing separate copies of the operating system in each instance/container. To maximize this effect, containers are frequently run on bare metal (non-virtualized operating systems).
Sirish Raghuram is co-founder and CEO of Platform9 Systems. As most modern software developers can attest, containers have provided us with dramatically more flexibility for running cloud-native applications on physical and virtual infrastructure.
