The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) today moved a step closer to making persistent external storage more easily accessible to a Kubernetes cluster by formally adding beta support for the Container Storage Interface (CSI) and persistent local volumes. The latest version of Kubernetes, version 1.10, also adds an external client-go credential provider (alpha) as well as support for CoreDNS at install time in beta.
DevOps teams or anyone who manages containers can now get their hands dirty testing the final tech previews of container management platform Rancher 2.0 shortly before its launch in a few weeks. Ahead of the availability of the production version of Rancher 2.0 in April, Rancher is releasing the last of Rancher 2.0s tech preview releases.
Mesosphere today moved to make good on a promise to incorporate Kubernetes clusters into the DC/OS platform to provide a way to more easily integrate microservices applications with disparate back-end data sources. With the release of version 1.11 of DC/OS, IT organizations now have the option to deploy Kubernetes as an alternative to the Marathon container orchestration platform Mesosphere previously supported.
Containers are about to transform the way IT is managed, as vendors are now starting to employ containers to transform how entire applications and databases are deployed and managed. Case in point is Robin Systems, which this week announced an update to the Robin Cloud Platform that employs Docker containers to make it easier for IT organizations to make available databases and packaged applications via a self-service platform that can be deployed on-premises or in a public cloud.
Aqua Security today updated its container security platform to add support for Kubernetes and the ability for developers to embed security controls directly in a container image. In addition to support for Kubernetes in the core Aqua container security platform, the latest version includes MicroEnforcer capability, which eliminates the need for a separate sidecar instance of a container to enforce security policies.
There may be no shortage of managed service providers (MSPs) willing to curate a Kubernetes distribution on behalf of a customer, but not all of them are willing to give customers the same level of control. Kublr has added a self-service capability that enables DevOps teams to download a production-ready instance of Kubernetes whenever and wherever they want.
StackRox this week moved to make it easier to secure containers by integrating its container security software with multiple container orchestration platforms. Company CTO Ali Golshan says StackRox Detect and Respond 2.0 software enables IT security teams to discover multiple types of threats by employing machine learning algorithms.
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.
The latest version of Kubernetes announced today at the KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 conference makes generally available some key functionalities that promise to make Kubernetes easier to manage, in addition to making the container orchestration engine now widely available on Windows. Kubernetes 1.9 includes an Apps/V1 Workloads API, which pulls together DaemonSet, Deployment, ReplicaSet and StatefulSet functions for both long-running stateless and stateful workloads.
