When it comes to personal data, an individual's health records are right up there as being amongst the most sensitive of data. Protecting it from being accidentally or purposely leaked or misused, is of the highest importance; both from an individual's perspective, but also from a governmental perspective. HIPAA is designed to establish policies, procedures and safeguards through the implementation of a set of rules for compliance.
Microservices and containers have taken the tech industry by storm. Kubernetes is one of the tools that has evolved to manage these new aspects of software development. It is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. One of the biggest challenges that organizations face when adopting Kubernetes is performing monitoring tasks in this dynamic environment.
Today I’m excited to announce Fleet, a new open source project from the team at Rancher focused on managing fleets of Kubernetes clusters. Ever since Rancher 1.0 shipped in 2016, Rancher has provided a central control plane for managing multiple clusters. As pioneers of Kubernetes multi-cluster management, we have seen firsthand how users have consistently increased the number of clusters under management.
In the last post, we compared kiam and kube2iam head-to-head. While kube2iam was declared the winner of that comparison, I feel that the case for kiam too compelling, and the setup too complicated, to not share my experience setting it up in production.
Engineering and “the business” don’t always speak the same language. That’s why in this blog post and webinar, we want to show you how to bridge the gap using the language “the business” understands: cold hard cash. When talking to the business value, here are four areas that DevOps provide value for your organization with associated calculators so you can get an exact value to share with your organization.
In this blog, we will cover the various requirements you need to meet to achieve PCI compliance, as well as how Sysdig Secure can help you continuously validate PCI compliance for containers and Kubernetes. Learn how to meet PCI Compliance Requirements for Container and Kubernetes Environments!
Rancher 2.4 is here – with new under-the-hood changes that pave the way to supporting up to 1 million clusters. That’s probably the most exciting capability in the new version. But you might ask: why would anyone want to run thousands of Kubernetes clusters – let alone tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands or more? At Rancher Labs, we believe the future of Kubernetes is multi-cluster and fully heterogeneous.
As your organization gets more comfortable with Kubernetes in development, you’ll want to prepare to adopt it in production. But mastering Kubernetes in dev does not necessarily translate into mastering it in prod. There are many additional components that must be configured and fine tuned to ensure reliable, self-healing production clusters. In this blog, we’ll walk through the key elements of a Kubernetes production setup.
