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.

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…

Sun Microsystems, and now Oracle, have traditionally released new versions every two…
