Thanks to Docker, containers are now the future of web development. Linux containers such as LXC or Solaris Zones have existed since the mid-2000s, but containers werent widely used outside of large tech companies such as Google until Docker was first released at PyCon in March 2013.
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 seen in a recent DigiCert report, an overwhelming majority of companies believe that an integrated security and devops team makes sense. In fact, 98 percent of survey 300 US respondents (a third from IT or security) are either planning to or have alreafy launched such an effort.
Theres general agreement that containers have become one of the fastest emerging technologies to be adopted in the enterprise in recent memory. The debate now concerns that rate at which containers adoption is continuing to grow.
Which is more secure: virtual machines (VMs) or containers? The truth is that securing containers and cloud-native workloads is different than securing VMs, and it all starts with understanding attack and response and the ever-evolving nature of threats.
Devops is indeed working, at least for those organizations using it, according to a recent survey by development tools provider Atlassian and IT management solutions company xMatters. But many organizations have not even heard of the concept.
Devops isnt simply transforming how developers and operations work together to deliver better software faster, it is also changing how developers view application security. A recent survey from software automation and security company Sonatype found that devops teams are increasingly adopting security automation to create better and safer software.
Food delivery startups abound in the U.S., but few of them deliver to customers in second cities and smaller towns. From early pioneers like Grubhub to newer services like DoorDash, food delivery businesses have tended to focus onurban areas with a high concentration of restaurants and people who frequentlyorder takeout.
Goldbely, the specialty food delivery service, has closed $10 million in Series A funding. The round was led by Global Founders Capital and Intel Capital (which also led the companys seed round).
