The HeadlinesEditor’s picks of the highlights from the past week.
Security for Kubernetes
Alex Handy, The New Stack
With all the excitement around containers and Kubernetes, it can be easy to forget that these systems still require the same types of help that older virtual machine and hardware-based systems needed. Chief among that list of needs is security. The New Stack sat down with Liz Rice, technology evangelist at Aqua Security, and Justin Cappos, associate professor of computer science and engineering at the New York University to discuss The Update Framework (TUF) and the evolving landscape of Kubernetes security.
Kubernetes StatefulSet In Action
Michael Hausenblas, Red Hat
If you’re interested in learning more about StatefulSets, take a deep dive into how they’re used in a Kubernetes application. A StatefulSet manages Pods that are based on an identical container spec. Michael Hausenblas put together a simple stateful app that can be used to experiment with a StatefulSet so you can see it in action.
Architecting Applications for Kubernetes
Justin Ellingwood, DigitalOcean
Designing and running applications with scalability, portability, and robustness in mind can be challenging, especially as system complexity grows. This guide discuss some of the principles and patterns you may wish to adopt to help you scale and manage your workloads on Kubernetes. While Kubernetes can run many types of workloads, choices you make can affect the ease of operation and the possibilities available on deployment.
