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.
Sylabscame out of stealth today to provide support for container software designed specifically for high-performance computing (HPC) environments that are being employed to process scientific applications based on, forco example, machine and deep learning algorithms. Company CEO Greg Kurtzer says the open source Singularity container he developed for HPC environments is unique in that it is based on a single file (SIF) that encapsulates the runtime environment.
The coming year is shaping up to one in which Google uses its experience managing Kubernetes clusters to close the gap between it and rival cloud services providers Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. Google has managed to maneuver itself into third place in the cloud service provider wars, thanks to focusing mainly on big data applications and providing lower-cost infrastructure services via the Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
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.
As IT organizations begin to deploy microservices at scale on Kubernetes clusters, many of them are discovering the need for a service mesh to more easily manage them. Buoyant, at the Kubecon + CloudNativeCon 2017 conference, unveiled what it describes as the first service mesh for Kubernetes clusters.
The latest version of Kubernetes announced today at the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 conference makes generally available some key functionalities that promise to make Kubernetes easier to manage, in addition to making the container orchestration engine now widely available on Windows. Kubernetes 1.9 includes an Apps/V1 Workloads API, which pulls together DaemonSet, Deployment, ReplicaSet and StatefulSet functions for both long-running stateless and stateful workloads.
Pepperdata has launched a project aiming to enable the Apache Spark in-memory computing framework for big data analytics applications. Pepperdata CTO Sean Suchtuer says the Hadoop File System (HDFS) on Kubernetes open-source project hosted on GitHub seeks to take advantage of a unique opportunity to unify the underlying infrastructure employed to support both big data and traditional applications.
Containers have revolutionized software delivery and deployment with their ease of configuration and deployment, increasing development speed and agility. Likewise, the culture of DevOps is changing with the speed revolution containers are bringing.
For those responsible for container security within their organizations, clashing is now much more than just a fashion faux pas: The recently discovered Linux Stack Clash vulnerability (CVE-2010-2240) is a serious threat that attackers can exploit to gain root privileges within a container. Worse, if the exploit is applied in the hosts user space, it represents a critical danger in which an attacker could compromise running containers (or the Docker daemon itself).
