InfoWorld: “From legacy to the cloud: The 3 stages of enterprise modernization”

June 14, 2021

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, enterprises were at various stages of their cloud strategies, whether that meant finally moving their email server to the cloud, switching to Microsoft 365, or even aggressively exiting their own data centers and going fully cloud-native.

Data Center Knowledge: “Istio v Linkerd: The Former May Be More Service Mesh Than You Need”

June 2, 2021

If you followed service mesh content at this year’s KubeCon and expected the service mesh panel to focus on Linkerd only to find out that you were wrong, you could be forgiven. After all, KubeCon is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation event and Linkerd is a CNCF project.

Linkerd was also the first service mesh, created by Oliver Gould and William Morgan and based on work they did at Twitter in the first half of last decade. The term “service mesh” originated from the project. (Gould and Morgan are now co-founders of Buoyant, a San Francisco-based Linkerd-focused startup.)

Increment: The container incubator

May 28, 2021

Priyanka Sharma could be excused for feeling daunted when she became general manager of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in June 2020. She’d been involved with the organization for years, but her assumption of the top role came at an unexpectedly difficult moment. The COVID-19 pandemic posed an existential threat to the CNCF’s popular KubeCon, an annual Kubernetes conference typically attended by tens of thousands of people. And that July, Google, a founding member of the CNCF, raised eyebrows when it decided not to transfer control of a state-of-the-art piece of open-source container technology called Istio to the foundation.

ITProToday: “KubeCon EU: The Future of Edge Computing is Open Source”

May 18, 2021

A press event at KubeCon EU looked at “What’s Next for Cloud Native.” Most interesting was the discussion on hybrid cloud and how open source will propel the future of edge computing.

Data Center Knowledge: Will CNCF’s ‘Service Mesh Interface’ Help Consolidate the Service Mesh Market?

May 18, 2021

As more and more applications are written (or refactored) and deployed in a cloud-native fashion, using containers and microservices, the concept of service meshes emerged to help admins and developers deal with the new complexity that accompanies this transition. Various service meshes have proliferated, and a big question now is whether the industry will standardize on a single service mesh platform like it standardized on Kubernetes as the go-to container orchestration platform.

The New Stack: “This Week in Programming: What’s the Takeaway of KubeCon EU 2021?”

May 8, 2021

Big conferences always lead people to ask questions like “what is the key takeaway?” and this week’s KubeCon+CloudNativeCon Europe is no exception. Of course, it’s not necessarily true that there is one answer to this sort of question, and it certainly depends on who you ask. That guy you know who works for a storage vendor will inevitably quip that persistent storage, or some such thing, is still the biggest issue to tackle with Kubernetes, while the service mesh maintainer will talk to you about the great panel on proxies.
