Automated Containerization of Apps Using CloudHedge

Well, the answer is yes and no. Containerization is a relatively new technology and needs significant efforts to containerize an application, orchestrate, secure, manage and monitor it. Hence it’s worth looking at what does it take to containerize, deploy and run an application in real production in bit details for you to take a call whether you want to venture into it yourself or not.


Container Monitoring and Alerting Best Practices

With the agility of modern development practices and infrastructure comes a new set of challenges – namely, that applications consist of more parts, and the relationship between infrastructure and code is much tighter. In this post, I will discuss the monitoring and alerting considerations that IT needs to think about for modern applications running on containers.


Another Industry First - StackRox Included on the DHS CDM Approved Products List

StackRox has long-standing roots in helping to secure the cloud-native stacks at a variety of Federal Government agencies. Over the past two years, we’ve earned contracts with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T)”) and have secured an investment and technology development agreement with In-Q-Tel. Today we’re excited to share the latest milestone in our work with U.S.

Kubernetes Master Class: Using Persistent Storage in Kubernetes and Project Longhorn

It’s often considered hard to use persistent storage correctly with Kubernetes. The concepts of Volume, PV, PVC, Storage Class; the implication of read-write-once vs read-write-many; the difference between Deployment vs StatefulSet are each obstacles for users to fully understand Kubernetes’s persistent storage.

Loki's Path to GA: Docker Logging Driver Plugin & Support for Systemd

Launched at KubeCon North America last December, Loki is a Prometheus-inspired service that optimizes storage, search, and aggregation while making logs easy to explore natively in Grafana. Loki is designed to work easily both as microservices and as monoliths, and correlates logs and metrics to save users money. Less than a year later, Loki has almost 6,500 stars on GitHub and is now quickly approaching GA.

The Three Pillars of Kubernetes Observability

The three pillars of observability are metrics, logs, and traces. To get a complete view into your applications as well as the Kubernetes platform they run on, you need to be looking at all the different perspectives. In this session, we will look at each pillar to see how we can use the information collected to understand what is happening in our environment today and how to troubleshoot the problems we experience tomorrow. We will share how to do this using various open source tools as well as using the Datadog platform.

Docker Build: A Beginner's Guide to Building Docker Images

Docker has changed the way we build, package, and deploy applications. But this concept of packaging apps in containers isn’t new—it was in existence long before Docker. Docker just made container technology easy for people to use. This is why Docker is a must-have in most development workflows today. Most likely, your dream company is using Docker right now. Docker’s official documentation has a lot of moving parts. Honestly, it can be overwhelming at first.
