Hands on introduction to OpenShift Serverless

I recently collaborated with fellow Red Hatters to create a whiteboarding video that introduces OpenShift Serverless at a high level. In this article, I build upon that YouTube video and my recent work with Quarkus to create a hands-on deep dive into OpenShift Serverless. This article walks you through using the OpenShift Serverless operator to seamlessly add serverless capabilities to an OpenShift 4.3 cluster and then using the Knative CLI tool to deploy a Quarkus native application as a serverless service onto that same cluster.

OpenShift Serverless

OpenShift Serverless helps developers to deploy and run applications that will scale up or scale to zero on-demand. Applications are packaged as OCI compliant Linux containers that can be run anywhere. Using the Serverless model, an application can simply consume compute resources and automatically scale up or down based on use. As mentioned in the introduction above, the whiteboarding YouTube video embedded below provides a high-level overview of OpenShift Serverless.

You’ve got Virtual Machines in my Container Platform!: An argument for running VM’s in Kubernetes

This post was originally published on https://dev.to/tylerauerbeck.

Traditionally there have been very clear battle lines drawn for application and infrastructure deployment. When you need to run a Virtual Machine, you run it on your virtualization platform (Openstack, VMWare, etc.) and when you need to run a container workload, you run it on your container platform (Kubernetes). But when you’re deploying your application, do you really care where it runs? Or do you just care that it runs somewhere?

This is where I entered this discussion and I quickly realized that in most cases, I really didn’t care. What I knew was that I needed to have the things I required to build my application or run my training. I also knew that if I could avoid having to manage multiple sets of automation — that would be an even bigger benefit. So if I could have both running within a single platform, I was absolutely on board to give it a shot.

Say “Hello” to Buildah, Podman, and Skopeo

Are you still doing all your Linux container management using an insecure, bloated daemon? Well, don’t feel bad. I was too until recently. Now I’m finding myself saying goodbye to my beloved Docker daemon, and saying hello to Buildah, Podman, and Skopeo. In this article, we’ll explore the exciting new world of rootless and daemon-less Linux container tools.

Configuring Envoy to Auto-Discover Pods on Kubernetes

This blog was originally published on Ales Nosek – The Software Practitioner.

Pods on Kubernetes are ephemeral and can be created and destroyed at any time. In order for Envoy to load balance the traffic across pods, Envoy needs to be able to track the IP addresses of the pods over time. In this blog post, I am going to show you how to leverage Envoy’s Strict DNS discovery in combination with a headless service in Kubernetes to accomplish this.

Floating Kwaaaay with Podman and systemd

This post was originally published on the ETI blog here.

Red Hat Quay, (or Kwaaaay as my US colleagues pronounce it), is a Container Registry originally from the guys at CoreOS, who were recently purchased by Red Hat. A container registry plays a pivotal role in a successful container strategy, making it simple for developers and administrators to store, manage, distribute and deploy container images across their container platforms, be that on a laptop, standalone server or a distributed solution like Kubernetes.
