Consumer hardware giant Apple is ramping up full production use of Kubernetes to provide “compute management” for its developers and engineers, according to a talk given today by Apple Software Engineer Alena Prokharchyk, speaking at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America, being held virtually this year by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
Enterprise IT pros have tackled how to deploy Kubernetes deployments. Now, they’re relying on open source observability standards to help keep cloud-native apps healthy.
Over the years, software engineers have selected terminology to describe the coding world they created. Unfortunately, unconscious biases seeped into the process and problematic descriptors have become embedded into computer programming language.
The ongoing cloud transformation of the business world has companies adopting a variety of cloud-native tech — like container platform Kubernetes — to take full advantage of cloud computing.
As KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA kicks off for another year, hosts of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, reflect on the virtual event, remember former Cloud Native Computing Foundation Executive Director Dan Kohn and discuss what the future holds for the CNCF now that the mainstream has embraced open-source.
KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2020 kicked off today virtually. Here are a number of announcements from the event.
The Kubernetes story in 2020 is not so much about how it has become ubiquitous in enterprise computing, but rather how the groundwork is being laid for it to disappear.
By 2025 analyst firm Gartner predicts that three quarters of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed at the edge – meaning outside of a traditional data centre or cloud and closer to end users.
At KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America, starting on November 17, attendees will dive into the minutiae of individual tools, features, tangles, etc. But the 2020 conference is shaping up to break from past events by zooming in on the experiences of developers and business users in the real world.
In development shops and enterprise IT departments, cloud native adoption stories are unfolding. And these stories — about actual people, businesses and business goals — will direct the future of cloud native projects.
Cheryl Hung is VP Ecosystem at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) arriving at this role from Google, where she says cloud native practices have been the norm for a decade, via a stint a with storage platform StorageOS. All things considered, she seemed the ideal person to help us cut through the confusion around cloud native. The interview is edited for brevity.
