Beyond Kubernetes: Istio network service mesh

ZDNet

Kubernetes is a series of open source projects for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Find out why the ecosystem matters, how to use it, and more. First, Docker transformed how we ran applications. Then, Kubernetes changed how we managed containers. Now, the open-source project Istio is building on both to add a network service mesh.


Kubernetes Is a Prime Catalyst in AI and Big Data's Evolution

Kubernetes is becoming synonymous with cloud-native computing. As an open-source platform, it enables development, deployment, orchestration and management of containerized microservices across multicloud ecosystems. Kubernetes is the key to cloud-native microservices that are platform agnostic, dynamically managed, loosely coupled, distributed, isolated, efficient, and scalable. The maturation of Kubernetes continues to deepen as it leverages containers, orchestrations, service meshes, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs. One clear indicator of Kubernetes' maturation is the rich ecosystem of other open-source projects that have grown up around it.


Machine Learning with GitOps and Progressive Delivery

#artificialintelligence

Many already know containers and Kubernetes, but not a lot are aware of service meshes. A service mesh is a layer in your Kubernetes cluster that is a combination of an ingress controller and routing daemon. It also allows you to route network traffic and control how pods and namespaces are interconnected. Service meshes can do load balancing, traffic switching and they also have a dynamic and programmable control plane. When you want to do more advanced deployments like A/B testing and canaries for machine learning applications, a service mesh is both useful and often necessary.


10 Emerging Cloud Computing Trends To Watch In 2020

#artificialintelligence

Developments in the cloud computing industry move at a pace that can be maddening to follow and impossible to predict. But some big-picture trends that will characterize the market for the next year are coming into focus, even if the technologies that ultimately enable them and vendors that drive them seem constantly in flux and vulnerable to disruption. Many of those emerging cloud computing trends stem from the industry entering a phase of standardization and increased compatibility--a sign of maturity in any tech sector. Cloud infrastructure--public, hosted private and on-premises--is increasingly less siloed, allowing workloads to be more portable and data streams more mobile. That standardization, largely thanks to the open-source movement, is allowing a shift in focus up the stack, with new channel roles emerging to support application-level processes, from enabling artificial intelligence and high-performance computing, to delivering novel SaaSOps and application development services.
