Monitoring Kubernetes

Posted by : David Gildeh | Docker Containers, Monitoring Wisdom, Monitoring, Kubernetes

In 2017, we saw the rise and eventual takeover of the container orchestration tool, Kubernetes. Although a lot of great alternatives exist such as Docker Swarm, Mesos and Amazon ECS, Kubernetes became the leader for running containers at scale. Its benefits are that it’s Cloud native (it was designed to run applications at scale on Cloud platforms) and the ability to provide a virtual abstraction layer on top of Cloud providers enabling users to deploy their applications consistently between Cloud providers.

DOXSFO September 2017: Kubernetes

Posted by : David Gildeh | Docker Containers, DevOps Exchange (DOXSFO), Kubernetes

Kubernetes deployments, Kubernetes Networking and Kubernetes storage. This was my first DOXSFO after being away all summer in London and reconnecting with our original meetup we started there, DOXLON, and it was great to see how far our San Francisco meetup has come along since I last attended!

If you were unable to make the KubeCon Berlin, this is another opportunity to hear from Joseph Jacks, one of the founders of Kismatic (the enterprise Kubernetes company, now Apprenda), and a founder of KubeCon. Joseph discussed native, distributed storage for Kubernetes.

We also heard from Bobby DeVeaux, one of our favourite people in DevOps, who presented his most recent project, a production-ready scalable Docker Swarm using Terraform and Packer. Mangirdas Judeikis from Red Hat provided a deep dive to OpenShift and how it works with containers. Cameron Adams took us through how ITV have been using Docker & Selenium to reduce their build pipeline from 4 hours to 40 minutes.
