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.

Is Edge Security a weak point

Security is a worry because Edge is perceived as a weak point that will provide hackers and malware with millions of new openings into the digital infrastructure that supports tomorrow’s global economy. Yet, although Edge security poses risks, and there are plenty of holes to fill, there are also many leading ICT companies that focus on the big picture and can provide end-to-end security both for individual devices and for the network as a whole.  

 

There are two types of security with which we must concern ourselves. The first is the security of the actual Edge devices; the second is the security of the data those devices collect and send to other points in the network.

Containers: The Future (and Present) of Application Development

In recent years, application development has started to focus on a new concept: containers. No, these aren’t shipping containers, however, most people working in a tech field have heard the term ‘container’ come up in some technical design meeting or discussing ‘the future of technology.’ It has quickly become a buzzword and an important concept,  but what actually is a container? What is all the excitement about? Why should we care?

 

Check out our YouTube video: Container fundamentals, security and usage in the enterprise.
