A Brief History of Multicluster Kubernetes

Posted by Irfan Ur Rehman on Nov 11, 2019 11:57:24 AM

This post was originally published here.

The community has been on a Kubernetes multi-cluster journey since 2015 and we’ve learned a lot along the way. As we approach KubeCon North America in San Diego, I’d like to reflect on how we got to where we are today, its origins and what the SIG is aiming for.

Microservices in the Real World: Now We Run Our Pre-Kubernetes Application on Kubernetes. So Can You.

Posted by Endre Sara on Oct 8, 2019 10:45:00 AM

Today, it’s become almost sacrilegious to think about running microservices on anything but Kubernetes. But in 2016, when we first began our journey to microservices, Kubernetes didn’t have the level of maturity that it has now. Back then, we just wanted the benefits of breaking up our monolithic application into loosely coupled services. Like most organizations, the monolith served us as well as it could. But when Docker made containers easy, a whole new world opened up. At the time, docker-compose was the easiest way to start a group of containerized application services, but the very next consideration was orchestrating those containers. We soon found that docker-compose does not allow the easy distribution and orchestration of components across cluster nodes. There were also challenges with multi-node networking and shared storage across the nodes. And then Kubernetes came along.

Best Practices for Managing Kubernetes Multitenancy

Posted by Meng Ding and Eva Tuczai on Oct 7, 2019 11:00:00 AM

How to Effectively Control Requests, the Silent Killer of Elasticity & Efficiency

Now that Kubernetes has graduated to enterprise-ready, organizations are looking to expand their platforms to support more applications and more lines of business. In order to do this at scale, they need to support these applications and lines of business in multitenant environments—even modern microservice applications have to share resources!

Microservices in the Real World: How We Used Red Hat Universal Base Image 8 to Secure Our Containers

Posted by Endre Sara on Sep 27, 2019 10:12:10 AM

Microservices are all well and good, but these are just our modern day applications. And all applications, especially enterprise applications need to be secure. In my previous post I talked about how we were able to dynamically manage Java memory for each of the processes running in our re-architected microservices application. This was just one example of the realities we face when building an enterprise microservices application. We re-architected our application to scale with and automate some of the world’s largest hybrid cloud estates. With that kind of responsibility, every service of this application must be secured.

Turbonomic 6.4 Delivers Continuous Performance for Kubernetes at Multicloud Scale

Posted by Asena Hertz on Sep 18, 2019 9:38:39 AM

Don’t Let the Complexity of Microservices and Cloud Native Stall the Next-Gen Platforms that Run Your Modern Applications

When it comes to containers, modernization is about architecting applications for speed, scale, and elasticity. Microservice architectures and the CI/CD pipelines that support them are enabling developer speed, but increase the complexity of ensuring application services continuously run.

Cloud Foundry vs Kubernetes for Deploying Cloud-Native Apps

Posted by Endre Sara on Apr 30, 2019 11:30:00 AM

PaaS is a platform upon which developers can build and deploy applications. Within the PaaS market, two of the major players are Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Kubernetes. They’re both platform services for deploying cloud-native apps, and they both deal with containers, and the list goes on. These products offer a higher level of abstraction than we get from IaaS products meaning that, beyond networking, storage and servers, the application’s O/S, middleware and runtime are all managed by the PaaS.

Self-Managing Kubernetes on Bare Metal

Posted by Eva Tuczai on Aug 14, 2018 9:20:49 AM

Kubernetes “won” and has become the most widely used container orchestration platform for deploying, scaling, and managing containers. The offspring of Borg has grown up and is in Production. Part of the benefits of Kubernetes is that it can be deployed on many different platforms, or choices for infrastructure providing compute, storage and network resources: on-prem or public cloud; build your own or great commercial offers like OpenShift or the growing provider/Kubernetes-as-a-Service market that includes GKE, EKS, AKS (more about that later); down to VMs or bare metal. The choice is yours.

Kubernetes Rescheduling: A Pod’s Life and Reincarnation

Posted by Asena Hertz on Jul 2, 2018 1:58:15 PM

Containers are today’s modern application standard, enabling rapid, iterative development and portability across any infrastructure. Container platforms—like Kubernetes—have risen out of the need to manage ever more distributed and dynamic cloud native applications. Problem solved, right? Wrong.
