Monitor Apache Flink with Datadog

Apache Flink is an open source framework, written in Java and Scala, for stateful processing of real-time and batch data streams. Flink offers robust libraries and layered APIs for building scalable, event-driven applications for data analytics, data processing, and more. You can run Flink as a standalone cluster or use infrastructure management technologies such as Mesos and Kubernetes.


Kong for Kubernetes 0.8 Released!

Kong for Kubernetes is a Kubernetes Ingress Controller based on the Kong Gateway open source project. Kong for K8s is fully Kubernetes-native and provides enhanced API management capabilities. From an architectural perspective, Kong for K8s consists of two parts: A Kubernetes controller, which manages the state of Kong for K8S ingress configuration, and the Kong Gateway, which processes and manages incoming API requests.


Challenges using Prometheus at scale

This article will cover the most common challenges you might find when trying to use Prometheus at scale. Prometheus is one of the foundations of the cloud-native environment. It has become the de-facto standard for visibility in Kubernetes environments, creating a new category called Prometheus monitoring. The Prometheus journey is usually tied to the Kubernetes journey and the different development stages, from proof of concept to production.


Runtime Security in Rancher with Falco

Runtime security for Rancher environments requires putting controls in place to detect unexpected behavior that could be malicious or anomalous. Even with processes in place for vulnerability scanning and implementing pod security policies and network policies in Rancher, not every risk will be addressed. You still need mechanisms to confirm these security barriers are effective and provide a last line of defense when they fail.


Our roadmap for the new Docker image API and pipeline build step enhancements

In our previous announcement for the removal of the Codefresh Docker registry, we presented a timeline of the migration phases along with the actions expected from our customers. One of the milestones in the migration process is the introduction of our new Image API along with several enhancements on the pipeline build step. We believe that these features deserve a dedicated explanation of why they are useful on their own (regardless of the registry removal).

IAM Access in Kubernetes: kube2iam vs kiam

IAM is the de-facto method of authorization in AWS. Most Kubernetes “Quick Start” guides for AWS do not adequately cover how to manage IAM access in your pods. This blog series will first go over the security issues specific to AWS IAM on Kubernetes, then compare solutions, and then end with a detailed walkthrough for setting up your cluster with one of those solutions.

Kubernetes Master Class: Monitoring and Alerting with Prometheus & Grafana

Rancher users and operators can collect custom metrics, automate alerts, notifications, and actions, and create cluster and project-level dashboards. In this class, you'll learn how to setup alerts with Rancher and Prometheus Alert Manager to find problems in your clusters before there's an outage. You'll also learn to visualize metrics for Kubernetes and for your applications so you can gather new insights to your users' usage patterns and your applications' run-time behaviors.
