Some legacy infrastructures are certainly more difficult to manage than others when organizations make the shift to cloud native. In the case of the heavily regulated financial services industry and the deep legacy infrastructure involved when banks transition to the cloud, challenges inherent in the sector abound. Regulatory and compliance and dat…
 
In the serverless paradigm, the idea is to abstract away the backend so that developers don’t need to deal with it. That’s all well and good when it comes to servers and complex infrastructure like Kubernetes. But up till now, database systems haven’t typically been a part of the serverless playbook. The assumption has been that developers will bui…
 
Kubernetes is becoming boring and that’s a good thing — it’s what’s on top of Kubernetes that counts.In this The New Stack Analysts podcast, TNS Founder & Publisher Alex Williams asked KubeCon attendees to join him for a short “stack” at our Virtual Pancake & Podcast to discuss “What’s on your stack?” The podcast featured guest speakers Janakiram M…
 
A lot of the time, it’s harder to convince your friends and family than a stranger. The first group is usually more decisive and direct with you. The same goes for your work family. When you’re building an internal infrastructure for autonomous teams, it becomes your job to not only provide that technical backbone, but to act as sales and customer …

Many IT teams begin moving their applications to containers and Kubernetes after their managers mandate the switch. Then in the rush to deploy they may forget, or simply delay, some fundamentals. Only six to 12 months later does integrating security into their CI/CD pipeline becomes a priority.This gradual evolution toward cloud native security bes…
 
The developer will certainly face new challenges when making the switch to a cloud native platform. The process might include, for example, learning how to add code to Kubernetes clusters or mastering the mechanics of etcd and kubectlis. The power and scaling flexibility a cloud native platform and Kubernetes offer, among other things, are often wo…
 
Enterprise startups are building the tools that help their customers to create an agile modern enterprise that adapts quickly to market changes. But the enterprise isn’t always open to that change, or even aware of the benefits of that change, said Frederic Lardinois, writer and news editor at TechCrunch, in this episode of The New Stack Analysts r…
 
What became the punk rock genre may be a harbinger of what is in store for the open source movement — but hopefully not. At any rate, open source’s popularity can certainly be compared to punk rock’s rise. When Linux began to be seen as a powerful and very practical alternative to Unix, and especially, Windows, during the 1990s, the movement then f…
 
It would be a mistake to ignore the immediate impact artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is already having on software development processes and DevOps. While some may see AI and ML as new technologies high on the hype cycle with overall marginal influences — even though they have been available for years — many organizations are…
 
Just four years ago, industry analysts were wary of running production workloads in containers, but certainly the industry got over that fast. Numbers around Docker and Kubernetes adoption vary broadly, but it's safe to say that well over half of Fortune 100 companies have embraced containers.In this episode of The New Stack Analysts, our Editor in…
 
You put three journalists from leading tech news outlets in a podcast room with the founder and editor in chief of the media outlet of record for the development and DevOps community. One could guess they would have rather opinionated thoughts to share and more than enough background based on an incessant curiosity — or arguably — an obsessional dr…
 
Some might assume artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are among the “latest and greatest technologies” that are on top of today’s hype list. Their adoption cycle — if they ever do see deployment on a large scale — is years away, one might assume. After all, software developers are really just beginning to take advantage of Kubern…
 
Service meshes have emerged as essential tools in managing deployments on containers and microservices. Indeed, one would be hard pressed to find DevOps teams that have successfully deployed on Kubernetes without the observability and management capabilities they offer give the immense complexity involved in such a project.The key role service mesh…
 
A blog post by Saad Ali, senior software engineer at Google, drew considerable attention early year when Ali first described Kubernetes GA in “Container Storage Interface (CSI) for Kubernetes GA. In that post, Ali described how “CSI was developed as a standard for exposing arbitrary block and file storage systems to containerized workloads on Conta…

It is hard to believe for many, as it is for this writer, that Cloud Foundry has existed for more than a decade after it was founded in 2008. Since its beginning, it certainly has more than established itself as a platform as a service (PaaS) of choice for deploying and scaling open source applications. It has also certainly played a role in the gr…
 
The magnanimous shift to cloud-native has brought with it obvious changes and shifts in how DevOps’ manage application deployments. Key among the challenges are observability and monitoring, logging, routing and, of course, security. As a way to keep this all under control, service meshes are increasingly seen not only as extremely useful extra lay…
 
It is now widely assumed that making the shift to microservices and cloud-native environments will only lead to great things — and yet. As the rush to the cloud builds in momentum, many organizations are rudely waking up to more than a few difficulties along the way, such as how Kubernetes and serverless platforms on offer often remain a work in pr…
 
Monitoring and observability will also play a major in this brave new AI/ML landscape with Kubernetes and microservices. This was the main theme of a podcast Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack, hosted, with Janakiram MSV, The New Stack Correspondent and principal of Janakiram & Associates, as the co-host.Irshad Raihan, dire…
 
I've got to admit it's getting better (Better)A little better all the time (It can't get no worse)Paul McCartney and John Lennon, respectively, sum up the two ways to look at the future of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning — with optimism over limitless potential or pessimism over increased job loss and income equality.

We learned a lot about our readers upon completion of our reader’s survey at the end of last year. According to those who responded to the SurveyMonkey questionnaire, working mostly in development and/or DevOps or operations, the trends and topics you are especially interested in include artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) on Kub…
 
Functions as a Service (FaaS), and especially, serverless are major buzzwords today, but beneath the hype, they offer tremendous resource-savings and scaling opportunities. But as organizations make the shift from monolithic-centric platforms as they rely on FaaS to, for example, scale to cloud native environments, the concepts and promise of what …
 
The advent of service meshes can be traced back to Linkerd, a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project. Now, as Linkerd’s adoption curve continues to accelerate, a number of other options have emerged that allow for the management and scaling of an often vast network of microservices and the applications within them. Istio, of course, is am…
 
It would have been difficult to predict the magnitude of open source’s role in today’s platforms and the explosion of choice on offer in today’s computing world thanks to its massive adoption. On the industry side, IBM’s purchase of Linux giant Red Hat this year for an astounding $34 billion has come as an even bigger surprise.The state of open sou…
 
Red Hat’s acquisition by IBM has been the biggest story of the year, dwarfing Microsoft’s acquisition of GitHub.
