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.
Now that the containerd project has formally reached a 1.0 status under the auspices of the Cloud Native Container Foundation (CNCF), one of the hallmarks of 2018 will be a significant expansion of the number and types of platforms that can host container images. The containerd project provides a mechanism for transferring container images in addition to controlling how a container is executed and supervised on both Linux and Windows systems.
Taking the time to attend a conference dedicated to containers and a specific platform such as the recent KubeCon + CloudNativeCon event signals whether an IT professional is part of an organization considering or already making a commitment to containers running on Kubernetes clusters. But a survey of 204 DevOps professionals attending the conference conducted by Platform9, a provider of managed Kubernetes services, shows what issues many organizations are wrestling with as they make this transition.
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.

As IT organizations employ Docker containers to drive hybrid cloud computing deployments, theres an increased need for monitoring tools that can track how containers are being employed both in the cloud and on-premises. To enable IT organizations to achieve that goal, Anchore has made available an edition of its software-as-a-service (SaaS) monitoring tools that can invoke Anchore Engine, an open-source edition of its software that can be deployed in an on-premises IT environment.
As the number of stateful applications being developed using Docker containers increases, a battle has broken out among storage vendors anxious to grab a share of an emerging class of workloads. The latest vendor to extend the reach of its storage software by adding support for both containers and Kubernetes is IBM.
Red Hat is moving to implement System Containers to reduce the number of components a developer needs to manage when employing a lightweight distribution of Linux. Lightweight distributions of Linux are being employed more widely because more of the software required to deploy an application is now embedded in a container.
