While every IT administrator intuitively accepts the idea that monitoring adds the value, the cost of instrumenting and monitoring every application has proven to be prohibitive. As a result, only a small percentage of applications running in the enterprise are monitored.
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.
As part of an effort to eliminate a Kubernetes management tax, Microsoft previewed a managed instance of Kubernetes clusters running on Azure that it will manage on behalf of customers for free.

Google and Cisco Systems today announced a strategic alliance in which the two companies will work closely to extend the reach of Google cloud services based on Kubernetes and other container technologies to on-premises environments based on Cisco infrastructure.

Docker Inc. at the DockerCon Europe 2017 conference extended its alliance with IBM as part of an effort to entice more IT organizations to lift and shift existing legacy applications into the cloud using Docker containers. Meanwhile, IBM announced that its middleware software used to run legacy applications now will be available as containers on the Docker Store.
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.
The concept of employing separate platforms to monitor and secure containers soon may be obsolete if Sysdig has its way. The company has added a Sysdig Secure module to provide visibility into container runtimes and apply polices to secure them and analyze how they might have been compromised.
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.
More evidence emerged today that Kubernetes is rapidly evolving into a platform on which some of the largest enterprise applications will be deployed. SAP announced that Vora 2.0, a big data analytics platform based on a distribution of the Apache Spark in-memory computing framework, has been redesigned to run on Kubernetes.
