Migrating to Kubernetes

The reasons to move to Kubernetes are many and compelling. This post doesn’t make the case that you should migrate, but assumes you have already decided that you want to. When you’re clear on what you want to do and why you want to do it, the questions of “When?” and “How?” become your focus. What follows centers on the question of how to approach making Kubernetes the platform on which your workloads thrive.


Alcide kAudit Integrates with Sumo Logic

Alcide recently introduced Alcide kAudit, an automatic tool for analyzing Kubernetes Audit logs. This tool focuses on detecting non-compliant and anomalous behavior of users, automated service accounts and suspicious administration operations. Alcide’s recent integration with Sumo Logic enables users to gain full access to insights and real-time alerts from Alcide kAudit.


Deploying Your Applications Using Codefresh, Google Cloud Platform, and Google Kubernetes Engine

Kubernetes offers scalability and reliability for your container-based applications. Combine this with GKE, and you now eliminate the need to install or operate clusters on your own. A huge plus to using GKE is that you now will be running Kubernetes in a GCP environment, therefore you can utilize all the handy integrations Google has to offer. Codefresh simplifies the process even more, by automating the process of getting your code built, tested, and deployed.


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).
