Once they have piloted Kubernetes, many organizations then want to scale up their K8s deployments, and run workloads across many clusters. But managing multiple clusters requires a new set of tools, ones that automate many routine and manual tasks. So, for its fifth Tech Radar report, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation surveyed the tools available for multicluster management, based on the input from its end-user community.
The team behind general-purpose policy engine Open Policy Agent (OPA) has pushed out version 0.30 (and 0.30.1 to make it run correctly) of the project, which should help provide a more secure setup and relax things for those using OPA in edge scenarios.
The business results are clear. Diverse and inclusive cultures provide companies with a competitive edge over their peers and deliver better results.
Similarly, Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, says engineers don’t currently apply the same level of rigor to cloud management as they do to software. And since they have “unlimited access to go provision infrastructure,” they can sometimes create huge spikes in cloud cost.
Expenditure on Kubernetes is rising dramatically, and most businesses are struggling to accurately project how much they’re expecting to spend on their container orchestration systems in future.
Over the last year, Kubernetes-related costs surged for 68% of businesses, according to research by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which manages the ecosystem. Just 12% of businesses lowered their Kubernetes expenses, while among organisations to have sustained an increase, half saw it jump by more than 20%.
A survey of 178 IT professionals that have deployed Kubernetes finds just over two-thirds of respondents (68%) have seen an uptick in Kubernetes costs, with an equal number either relying on monthly estimates (44%) or doing nothing to control those costs (24%).
Kubernetes use has surged in recent years. While there has been much consolidation around Kubernetes for container orchestration (with some outliers), companies still adopt many different technologies to address Kubernetes multi-cluster management.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has released a Technology Radar report that explains the prevailing attitudes regarding Kubernetes multi-cluster management tools and strategies. Below, we’ll highlight results from the report and use these insights to gauge the overall state of multi-cluster management habits.
Language matters. It demonstrates our values and has the power to make people feel part of – or excluded from – a community. Offensive terms should have no place in the language of computing, and yet today, they still do.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is trying to make it easier for companies to choose a multicluster management solution for their environments with the release of its fifth CNCF End User Technology Radar. The radar is a guide to emerging technologies that are chosen based on feedback from the CNCF End User Community.
As culture changes, companies need to update the language they use to be as inclusive as possible. But it can be a complicated process to get everyone on board with inclusive language in code. And if you’re dealing with insensitive function names or API calls, it gets more complicated.
