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.
StackRox this week moved to make it easier to secure containers by integrating its container security software with multiple container orchestration platforms. Company CTO Ali Golshan says StackRox Detect and Respond 2.0 software enables IT security teams to discover multiple types of threats by employing machine learning algorithms.
The Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) this week has decided to accept Vitess as a new project. Vitess is a database orchestration system developed at YouTube that automatically shards instances of open source MySQL databases as they horizontally scale.
Microservices have become popular in large part because they simplify application deployment and management. At a higher level, however, they also can help your team work more efficiently.
Microservices and containers can help you to build and deploy applications faster. But do these technologies actually make your applications run faster?
