Docker Security 101: challenges, risks, and 33 best practices

Containers, along with orchestrators such as Kubernetes, have ushered in a new era of application development methodology, enabling microservices architectures as well as continuous development and delivery. Docker is by far the most dominant container runtime engine, with a 91% penetration according to our latest State of the Container and Kubernetes Security Report.


Istio Routing Basics

When learning a new technology like Istio, it’s always a good idea to take a look at sample apps. Istio repo has a few sample apps but they fall short in various ways. BookInfo is covered in the docs and it is a good first step. However, it is too verbose with too many services for me and the docs seem to focus on managing the BookInfo app, rather than building it from ground up. There’s a smaller helloworld sample but it’s more about autoscaling than anything else.


It Takes a Village

Rancher Rodeos are great events for learning Kubernetes and Rancher beginner-level concepts, with attendees gaining just the right amount of knowledge to get started with provisioning Kubernetes clusters and launching applications. I present frequently at Rodeos, and the scene typically unfolds like this: together with attendees, we are walking through Rancher features, and usually as we’re experimenting with Monitoring, Alerting, and Logging, I see the wheels start turning in their heads.


Helping solve the Kubernetes challenge: Sumo Logic at the helm

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably heard of Kubernetes, the open source container orchestration governed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Kubernetes helps you focus on your applications by providing powerful abstractions and help solves many of the challenges of managing, deploying and scaling your containerized applications.


Reimaging Observability: Announcing Sumo Logic's new Kubernetes Solution

The history of technology, and Enterprise IT, in particular, is a story of trends colliding with trends. In the case of Kubernetes, we have the intersecting trends of cloud, microservices, and containerization adoption. The orchestration platform born in the juggernaut that is Google has become the focal point for all 3 of these trends. And why do companies care? Because it is life and death.


Announcing The Rancher Trusted Ranch Hand Program

The Rancher community is 30,000+ strong and growing fast! In order to continue growing and nurturing our vibrant open source community, we’ve created the Trusted Ranch Hand Program. Trusted Ranch Hands are a select group of knowledgeable ranchers ready, willing, and able to help other Ranchers as we all adopt DevOps practices and principles using Rancher, Kubernetes, and related technologies that help us all Run Kubernetes Everywhere!


StackRox + Sumo Logic - No Data Wrestling Needed

Operationalizing container security by integrating with existing DevOps tooling and workflows has long been a design principle in how we’ve built our StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform. Today we’re excited to announce yet another powerful integration to make our customers’ operational lives better – the StackRox App for Sumo Logic.


How to monitor Oracle's Kubernetes Engine with Datadog

Oracle’s Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) is a service that helps you deploy, manage, and scale Kubernetes clusters in the cloud. With OKE, organizations can build dynamic containerized applications by incorporating Kubernetes with services running on their Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. We’ve partnered with Oracle so that you can use the Datadog Agent to get comprehensive visibility into your Kubernetes clusters on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
