Regardless of where you stand with your digital transformation project(s), are you prepared to explain how machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) will transform your organization? For the vast majority of IT staffers, the answer will be range from kind of maybe to thats years away, so lets talk later.
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.
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.
The Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) this week has decided to accept Vitess as a new project. Vitess is a database orchestration system developed at YouTube that automatically shards instances of open source MySQL databases as they horizontally scale.
Portworx this week launched an open source STorage Orchestrator Runtime for Kubernetes (STORK) project, which promises to make it easier to manage the underlying storage systems serving containerized applications. Company CTO Gao Rau says STORK provides a mechanism to inform Kubernetes scheduler software about the state of the physical storage systems attached to a Kubernetes cluster.
Is LXD, Canonicals open source container hypervisor, still an important part of the container ecosystem? Thats a fair question to ask, because no one has heard much about it lately.
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.
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.
All the technologies required to deploy containers in the enterprise can be a bit overwhelming to consume. With an eye toward making that easier to achieve Tigera has launched Tigera CNX, a commercial offering that combines its pioneering open source Project Calico container networking software with the open source Istio service mesh technology developed by Google, IBM and Lyft.
