As for Kubernetes, well, if all the attention around it seems like overkill in the beginning, it has since transformed into arguably the biggest thing to hit IT since cloud computing. I think the majority of new applications will eventually be built and packaged using Kubernetes, even if containers really do give way to serverless computing as an even lower-touch approach for developers at some point. If you follow what’s happening inside the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, where Kubernetes lives, they’re already shifting some focus to serverless and it seems safe to assume that Kubernetes will be a foundational element of whatever emerges there.

Finally, speaking of the CNCF, I’ve noted this before but it bears repeating: We’re in a new era in IT, especially infrastructure, where open source is more important than ever. And it seems like the CNCF (which technically is part of the Linux Foundation) wields a level of power heretofore unseen among open source foundations. It has money, huge members and, seemingly, a functional governance model. And it’s really stepping up its efforts around certifications and other business-level functions. READ MORE

With 4100 registrations, the KubeCon 2018 is the largest so far. At a subsequent press conference on site, the invited industry representatives agreed on one thing in particular: Kubernetes has accelerated the development cycle of its products enormously.  Open source and the open-source model, also in the podium agreed, is indispensable in the cloud-native development. Those who seriously want to play have to adapt to the open development model.

In other cloud news, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe is happening this week in Copenhagen, Denmark, and those in attendance can look forward to three days of talks, co-located events, and collaboration focused on cloud-native computing. Not everyone can be there in person, though, so has been running a series of articles to preview a few of the featured conference talks. The following articles will give you a taste of the event and help you learn the latest about containers, cloud, Kubernetes, and more. READ MORE “There’s a Server in Every Serverless Platform”

Serverless computing or Function as a Service (FaaS) is a new buzzword created by an industry that loves to coin new terms as market dynamics change and technologies evolve. But what exactly does it mean? What is serverless computing?

There is no single definition of the term, but to build some consensus around the idea, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) Serverless Working Group wrote a white paper to define serverless computing. READ MORE.
