Practical tips for rightsizing your Kubernetes workloads

When containers and container orchestration were introduced, they opened the possibility of helping companies utilize physical resources like CPU and memory more efficiently. But as more companies and bigger enterprises have adopted Kubernetes, FinOps professionals may wonder why their cloud bills haven’t gone down—or worse, why they have increased.


Measure Your Container-Management Maturity and Up Your Cloud-Native Game

D2iQ has made available a new assessment tool that enables you to gauge your container management maturity level. By taking a 1-minute quiz, you can identify where you fit within the five levels of cloud-native container-management maturity–Explorer, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Master. The maturity model is based on the wisdom of D2iQ Kubernetes experts with more than a decade of experience building and deploying Kubernetes platforms for customers.


Turning Kubernetes into a Developer-Friendly Product

Today, I'm excited to share with you how we've turned Kubernetes into a product that developers can easily use without any headaches. We'll explore why Kubernetes can be difficult for developers and how Qovery simplifies the process by acting as an intermediate layer and integrating with the developer ecosystem.

Enlightning - Develop at Lightning Speed on Kubernetes with DevSpace

By now, Kubernetes has become the de-facto industry standard for container orchestration. But developing applications natively for K8s can be a real pain. Developers should be able to focus on building cool stuff without having to maintain an entire cluster on their local machine. Here's where DevSpace, an open source tool recently donated to the CNCF, comes in! By abstracting and codifying your local development environment, DevSpace makes it a breeze to automate, share and collaborate across devs and dev teams.

How to migrate existing Grafana dashboards and alerts into Kubernetes Monitoring in Grafana Cloud

Kubernetes Monitoring in Grafana Cloud is already an observability Swiss Army knife: You can monitor your Kubernetes fleet performance, nodes, pod logs, resource utilization, and overall infrastructure health all in one hosted platform that comes with prebuilt Grafana dashboards to visualize all the important telemetry you need. All of this sounds great … but what if you already have Grafana dashboards and alerts that are custom to your fleet and the way you do business?

DevSecOps in Practice with VMware Tanzu - A Discussion with the Authors - Tanzu Talk

What is VMware Tanzu? I get asked this question a lot and, you know, I try to explain it.

It's expansive and in-depth, not only on the parts of Tanzu, but also the theory, ideas, and ways of working that Tanzu embodies.

Kubernetes vs OpenStack: which one to choose?

Kubernetes vs OpenStack is a common dilemma that organisations face when considering the modernisation of their IT infrastructure. Both are well-established open-source technologies for building cloud infrastructure, and both bring tangible benefits, especially when used in combination. Yet, they differ significantly and need to be properly bundled to feel like a fully-integrated solution. What does this mean in practice? Let’s take a look!


Kubernetes CPU Requests & Limits VS Autoscaling

In a prior blog post, we discussed the basics of Kubernetes Limits and Requests: they serve an important role to manage resources in cloud environments. In another article in the series, we discussed the Out of Memory kills and CPU throttling that can affect your cluster. But, all in all, Limits and Requests are not silver bullets for CPU management and there are cases where other alternatives might be a better option.
