Infographic: Your Guide to Kubernetes Distributions

Kubernetes standardizes application design into modular and portable microservices that can be easily deployed and scaled over multiple cloud environments. Organizations can own their destinies in the cloud by leveraging vanilla tools, distros, or managed services.

CNCF Ambassador Spill: Takeaways from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon

Over 8,000 people attended KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Seattle last month. They were there to celebrate the exponential growth of Kubernetes, the open source software for orchestrating containers. Since the first KubeCon in 2015, the cloud native community has mushroomed in size and success. As Janet Kuo stated in her keynote address, “Kubernetes is now very, very boring” – it has become an…

Why Cloud Native: Cloud Agnostic Platforms and Automation Driving Business Value

As the benefits of the cloud become increasingly evident, more and more organizations are migrating their workloads. Yet taking full advantage of what the cloud has to offer can require altering your application to make it cloud native.

What is Cloud Native: ‘Cloud native’ describes any application that was built to live in the cloud and designed to optimize its potential. It applies to…

Does the Service Mesh spell the end for Middleware?

Middleware is perhaps fading away in the place of the service mesh as Istio and related technologies continue to garner momentum. They both oversee communication between various applications and services, but can differ substantially in operations as well as paradigms. Prominent in service-oriented architectures, could middleware become irrelevant in today’s container-focused…

The Containerization of Machine Learning: TensorFlow, Kubernetes and Kubeflow

Machine learning (ML) is a method of data analysis for identifying patterns and predicting future probabilities. It is part of research on artificial intelligence (AI). By inputting data with predetermined answers into mathematical models, computers can train themselves to predict future unknown sets of inputs.

While ML has so far been successful in solving specified tasks, the analysis of data…

Rancher 2.0: Exciting Features You Should Know About

Rancher 2.0 was made GA (generally available) on May 1st, and there is quite a bit to be excited about. Providing a managed Kubernetes distribution, Rancher is deterministic in deployment and lightweight in installation. Its simplicity and flexibility can make it ideal for straightforward infrastructures that lack managed Kubernetes offerings and need to be built from the ground up. W…

Why Kubernetes Ingresses aren’t as Difficult as You Think

How to use Ingresses to Route your Services on a Vanilla K8s Deployment
If you’re using Kubernetes, you probably have deployments or stateful sets managing a number of pods that are running different microservices within a greater application. What use is this if your microservices can’t communicate with each other? They are running as a number of pods scheduled by Kubernetes, and these pods…
