Mesosphere today moved to make good on a promise to incorporate Kubernetes clusters into the DC/OS platform to provide a way to more easily integrate microservices applications with disparate back-end data sources. With the release of version 1.11 of DC/OS, IT organizations now have the option to deploy Kubernetes as an alternative to the Marathon container orchestration platform Mesosphere previously supported.
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.
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.
About a decade ago, the software engineering industry reinvented itself with the development and codification of so-called devops practices. Devops, a compound of development and operations, refers to a set of core practices and processes that aim to decrease time to market by thoughtfully orchestrating the tight integration between software developers and IT operations, emphasizing reuse, monitoring, and automation.
Microservices and containers can help you to build and deploy applications faster. But do these technologies actually make your applications run faster?
One of the biggest unmet challenges associated with building microservices based on containers is managing all the data attached to them. As microservices dynamically appear and disappear, keeping track of what is being used or needs to be made available becomes a significant IT operational headache.
Provisioning a Kubernetes cluster has become a lot easier in recent months, but the daily management of the platform still can be challenging. To make it simpler to manage a Kubernetes cluster, Canonical has teamed up with Rancher Labs to deliver a Cloud Native Platform due out in early 2018.
Devops is becoming mainstreamI know because I am contacted almost daily with unsolicited sales emails from companies trying to partner with me to implement devops. Many companies beginning their devops transition still have ingrained old-school processes, along with legacy QA and development teams.
We started 2017 with predictions on what the year will bring for enterprise DevOps adoption, and as we approach the end of the year, we have seen more enterprises using DevOps-leading practices to both help keep up with innovative companies and be more agile, adaptable and scalable. For some organizations, DevOps represents a departure from traditional processes, roles and even responsibilities in favor of enabling more efficiency and speed for the business.
