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.
One of the biggest unmet challenges associated with building microservices based on containers is managing all the data attached to them. As microservices dynamically appear and disappear, keeping track of what is being used or needs to be made available becomes a significant IT operational headache.
Joyent, a unit of Samsung that provides cloud computing services, is teaming up with LunchBadger to deploy a serverless computing framework based on an event-driven architecture on top of Kubernetes clusters. LunchBadger CEO Al Tsang says the company has developed a shim framework that can support multiple open source serverless computing frameworks.
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 OpenStack Foundation announced this week that it is leading an effort to combine two existing open source projects to create a Kata class of containers that can be deployed on a lightweight version of the Kernel-based virtual machine. OpenStack Foundation COO Mark Collier says Kata Containers enable each container to have access to its own kernel to provide the same level of isolation that containers enjoy on existing virtual machines, without having to execute any extra code that traditional virtual machines require to support entire operating systems.
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.
At the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 conference this week, Microsoft updated its Kubernetes connector dubbed Virtual Kubelet, which provides a simpler means to invoke serverless computing frameworks without having to master a functional programming language. In addition, Microsoft announced it is making available as open source code an instance of the Open Service Broker API for the Microsoft Azure public cloud.
Oracle, at the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 conference, announced that it is making two tools for managing Kubernetes clusters available as open source projects. An Fn Installer developed by Oracle makes it easier to provision a serverless computing framework on a Kubernetes cluster, while Global Multi-Cluster Management software makes it possible to more easily manage distributed instances of Kubernetes.
Jenkins offers a simple way to set up a continuous integration or continuous delivery environment for almost any combination of languages and source code repositories using pipelines, as well as automating other routine development tasks. While Jenkins doesnt eliminate the need to create scripts for individual steps, it does give you a faster and more robust way to integrate your entire chain of build, test, and deployment tools than you can easily build yourself.
