Container Platform

Can you manage multi-cloud Kubernetes from one place? Mirantis says ‘Yes!’

Kubernetes helps manage containerized applications at scale by distributing application workloads across clusters. This system is used to deploy and manage cloud-native applications whether it's on on-premise infrastructure or in the cloud. Kubernetes is used to turn a collection of physical or virtual servers into a platform that hosts...

The importance of context for Kubernetes and how an IDE can provide this

Kubernetes has been the talk of the town for a while now. And why wouldn't it be? The past two years have seen a rapid migration of workloads to containerized environments at exponential scales. Against this backdrop, the significance of container orchestration tools like Kubernetes has grown rapidly. But...

Containers are the new Virtual Machines

There are still people in organizations that need to understand what a container is. And what the main benefits of container technology are. Although the concept is pretty old and the most famous container software (Docker) saw the light nearly a decade ago, this still holds true. Sometimes technical...

Container Platforms and governance – the complete picture (part 2)

Container Platforms are hot - many organizations nowadays explore the options to acquire a "ready-made" solution or build one themselves. In the previous article, we explored a long list of the organizational challenges as well as some business-related aspects that are important. As a follow up we now present some...

Container Platforms and governance – the complete picture (part 1)

Nearly every (large scale) organization has adopted containers now in a certain shape or form. Containers and Kubernetes are still on the rise. The number of Kubernetes clusters grows rapidly and many of those organizations explore ways to acquire or build a so-called "container platform". They already see clear...

What you need to know about Cloud Workload Protection

Shifting security left helps to reduce security related problems too late in the Software Development LifeCycle. Your CI/CD pipelines can include a lot of stages to check IaC templates, Dockerfiles, Helm charts and other scripts which acts as the base for your cloud (native) workloads. However, it's impossible to...

Adopting zero-trust security with a Service Mesh

As organizations are becoming more and more cloud native, adopting Kubernetes, container-based applications and microservices, they’re realizing that doing security the right way, at scale, is non-trivial. Kubernetes is great at deploying and running container-based applications, but it doesn’t automatically do security, especially the zero trust security approach. And...

How Observability has Changed in a Cloud-Native World

The modern world of software delivery is constantly being flooded with new breeds of software solutions, the latest of them being cloud-native. The CNCF is a governing body that oversees the development of many such open source tools that usher in a new era of computing. These tools work...

4 Ways You Can Enhance Your Software Supply Chain Security

With a steady increase in the usage of open-source software by enterprises, software ecosystems are exposed to third-party software components that leave them vulnerable to attacks. Since these components are non-proprietary, cybercriminals exploit their design flaws to infiltrate internal systems and compromise the entire supply chain, giving rise to...

How a service mesh helps you build reliable applications

Monolithic applications and workloads have become a thing of the past. Today, most organizations are either running microservices-based workloads in production or at the very least experimenting with it. There are numerous benefits of a distributed architecture. Organizations can now deliver software faster, migrate easily, and enjoy the benefits...
