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.

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.

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.

The New Stack: “KubeCon EU: WebAssembly Is More Than a JavaScript Replacement “

May 7, 2021

Virtual machine language WebAssembly (Wasm) is expanding into the purview of cloud native computing and is increasingly being integrated into Kubernetes environments.

InfoQ: “Cloud Native and Kubernetes Observability: Expert Panel”

May 6, 2021

Kubernetes, microservices, and distributed systems are fundamentally changing the conventional landscape. Traditional site reliability techniques like metrics, instrumentation, and alerting need to be supplemented with other signals, such as tracing which is integral to observability. Further, they need to be correlated to enable troubleshooting, both proactively and reactively, be able to do more in-depth Root Cause Analysis, cater to multiple personas, and so on.

Prometheus Q&A: How the Kubernetes monitoring tool is evolving

May 6, 2021

Prometheus is a time-series event monitoring tool for cloud-native, containerized environments — particularly for use in Kubernetes ecosystems. In fact, because both are based on tools designed for internal use at Google, Prometheus inherently complements Kubernetes and integrates with the orchestration platform.

TechTarget: “CNCF projects hone multi-cluster Kubernetes management”

May 6, 2021

The next phase of development for Kubernetes and its related open source projects has become squarely focused on multi-cluster management.

Kubernetes Podcast: “Putting on a KubeCon, with Colleen Mickey”

May 6, 2021

A small army of community volunteers is necessary to host a KubeCon, but behind them is a professional events team. Colleen Mickey is Director of Event Services at the Linux Foundation and is responsible for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, as well as other events like Hyperledger Global Forum and cdCon. She talks to us about hosting, feeding and watering 10,000 people, as well as the change to virtual events.

SiliconANGLE: “CERN boosts large-scale deployment of Kubernetes and machine learning to improve science”

May 5, 2021

Some of the questions that most intrigue humanity are undoubtedly related to the universe, how it works and what it is made of. And that is precisely what CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, tries to uncover by providing a unique range of particle accelerator facilities to researchers around the world.
