The Istio service mesh continues its quarterly release cadence with version 1.6. After major changes in release 1.5 to the control plane architecture, notably moving from a set of microservices to a monolithic Istiod service, and the introduction of a new, unified model for extending Istio and its Envoy proxies using WebAssembly, Istio 1.6 may seem tame in comparison, but it still offers a large number of smaller enhancements with a focus on operability. We will look at several of the highlights.

In February, we published an article providing side-by-side comparison between the managed Kubernetes offerings of the three largest cloud providers: Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). The Kubernetes ecosystem changes rapidly, as do the feature sets of these managed platforms. This post covers important updates to these services made since our original comparison and our April and May updates.

You learn from every customer, but some of the toughest requirements can come from our Intelligence Community customers. Occasionally, that group needs capabilities uniquely their own, but in the best of times, they push you in ways that benefit all your customers. Our recent developments in runtime security fall in that second camp, and we’re excited to announce their availability today.

One of the strengths of Kubernetes as a container orchestrator lies in its ability to manage and respond to dynamic environments. One example is Kubernetes’ native capability to perform effective autoscaling of resources. However, Kubernetes does not support just a single autoscaler or autoscaling approach. In this post, we discuss the three forms of Kubernetes capacity autoscaling.

As companies embrace containerized, cloud-native applications, they recognize that the need for security is as paramount as ever but struggle to secure these new technologies. Since everyone is learning the new stack, no one has a roadmap for how to apply security across the various stages of the containerization journey. Each stage introduces novel security challenges, and organizations must learn both the infrastructure and the security at the same time.

If you run workloads in Kubernetes, you know how much important data is accessible through the Kubernetes API-from details of deployments to persistent storage configurations to secrets. The Kubernetes community has delivered a number of impactful security features in 2017 and 2018, including Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for the Kubernetes API.

In this StackRox video, Karen Bruner takes a wide-ranging look at the current features and limitations of the managed Kubernetes services from the three largest cloud service providers: Amazon’s Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Microsoft’s Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). We hope that by presenting this information side-by-side, both current Kubernetes users and prospective adopters can see their options or get an overview of the current state of managed Kubernetes.

Google wraps a lot of great services around Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), its managed Kubernetes service. But even with Google taking on so much infrastructure setup and management, you still have responsibilities for significant aspects of security and compliance.
