Want to have a really bad day? Make a security blunder that the whole world can see — Yes, we’re looking at you SolarWinds. No one wants that. That’s why even though Kubernetes isn’t the easiest system to lock down securely, you must do just that. Fortunately, programs like Falco can help.
This post is part of an ongoing series from CNCF Business Value Subcommittee co-chairs Catherine Paganini and Jason Morgan that focuses on explaining each category of the cloud native landscape to a non-technical audience as well as engineers just getting started with cloud native.
As we dive into studying for the Certified Kubernetes Security Specialist (CKS) program, make sure to understand the test and its structure. A full blog details the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF) announcement about the CKS and its exam structure.
The Kubernetes release cycle is back to its usual self, bringing version 1.20 to K8s aficionados young and old. The release includes stable volume snapshot operations, process ID limiting, advances in kubectl debug, and one less thing to worry about when it comes to exec probe timeouts.
The latest release of the container orchestration system deprecates the Docker runtime in favor of its own runtime interface.
The Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) that oversees the development of Kubernetes has approved a 1.20 release of the platform that promises to simplify IT operations tasks while at the same announcing that support for Docker Engine in the platform will be deprecated beginning next year.
The open source community has made its mark on the software development space through its one-for-all, all-for-one group think and pace of innovation that no single enterprise could ever hope to match. This has allowed open source-based platforms to spread quickly through the market and become the basis for much of the advancements across the software-defined ecosystem.
CNCF and the Kubernetes Release Team recently announced the release of Kubernetes 1.20, which is one of the largest releases with a long list of enhancements.
As service mesh adoption goes mainstream, early adopters of Linkerd say it allowed them to start small and grow in scale and sophistication as needed.
It all started so quietly. Deep in the forthcoming Kubernetes 1.20 release notes, Kubernetes, everyone’s favorite container orchestrator, developers announced: “Docker support in the kubelet is now deprecated and will be removed in a future release.” You’d have thought from the uproar that someone just kicked your puppy. Relax.
