Containers are being adopted rapidly by a diverse range of businesses seeking a modularized microservice-based architecture. Containers are highly scalable and allow you to push code out rapidly and frequently.
If youve spent a bit of time coding, you will eventually come across the interesting and unusual idea of idempotence. The word not lending itself well to either spelling or pronunciation, many like me have become immediately curious.
Kubernetes has become a standard waymany would say the standard way to deploy containerized applications at scale. But if Kubernetes helps us to tame sprawling and complex container deployments, whats available to help us tame Kubernetes?

The blurring of the lines between IT and business isnt a new concept. In fact, I can remember back to the 2015 MIT Sloan CIO Symposium, where Brook Colangelo, then EVP and CTO at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, declared that everybody is a technologist and everybody in technology is in the business.
Aqua Security today updated its container security platform to add support for Kubernetes and the ability for developers to embed security controls directly in a container image. In addition to support for Kubernetes in the core Aqua container security platform, the latest version includes MicroEnforcer capability, which eliminates the need for a separate sidecar instance of a container to enforce security policies.
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.
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.
