Breaking Silos using the power of Infrastructure as Data in Kubernetes

“I don’t have permission to do this!” That’s one of many phrases that I used to hear from a couple of developers when trying to introduce them to a Configuration Management tool. This barrier was, and still is in some cases, a major obstacle in companies that didn’t adhere to the DevOps movement and practices, a problem that I like to call as “The Wall”. If you are questioning, yes, I am a huge Pink Floyd fan! 

“The Wall” is characterized when, for some reason(s), developers, and operations don’t find a middle ground and share the responsibilities. What it will probably result in is a rigid and unreliable application. In a world, where requirements are constantly modified due to customer behavior, these teams will likely fail, when trying to achieve a stable, resilient, and flexible platform. It’s not easy to deal with this cultural problem, and one of the main pillars that support this is technical complexity. All sides have their own specifics, problems, architecture, languages… If we just throw packages from one side to the other, we are just adding “another brick in the wall”. There is a necessity to translate this entanglement and meet halfway, working with platforms like Kubernetes, a container orchestrator that can provide a smooth approach when introducing teams to areas that they didn’t know before.

How to control Container-Native Applications with Ansible Operator

Container-native applications are becoming more and more complex, consisting of various services and features, each component with its own security constraints and complex network policy rules. This makes it more difficult to perform day two operations once the cloud-native applications are deployed. 

While upgrades, patches, and provisioning can be done using Ansible playbooks or Helm Charts, application lifecycle, storage lifecycle, and other deeper analysis cannot be done and requires application support team intervention. 

Operator Framework initiative introduced Operator-SDK framework several years ago to standardize Kubernetes Operators development and make it easier for the Kubernetes community to create Operators and control container-native applications lifecycle.

Red Hat Services Guide to Virtual Summit 2020

While we may not be able to meet face-to-face this year at Summit, this certainly doesn’t change our goals. Red Hat Global Services is still focused on three key things: client success, deep expertise, and emerging technology adoption. Only this time, we’re coming to you live via our Virtual Summit, where you can attend our keynotes and breakout sessions from your own personal devices.

Business-level impact with container adoption, at Red Hat Summit

The importance of utilizing containers goes beyond being a supporting block for agile and DevOps. Utilizing new technology can help organizations realize people and process changes that support modernization and container adoption is an opportunity and a catalyst that helps to cause a chain reaction in the way organizations deliver software.
