Scaling Kubernetes Monitoring without Blind Spots or Operations Burden

Kubernetes has seized center stage in the DevOps world when building and migrating applications to a cloud-native environment. In reality, Kubernetes is a means to an end — to scale operations of containerized microservice architecture. Managing deployment, scaling, upgrading and updating of the various microservices of fragmented applications running on containers is not a trivial task, certainly already beyond manual processes. So automation is the only way to go.


These are the 3 biggest mistakes you can make when moving to Kubernetes

We are currently in the midst of the biggest KubeCon to date, KubeCon San Diego 2019. With 12,000 expected attendees, KubeCon is the conference for Kubernetes; the one to rule them all, the open-source container-orchestration platform. In honor of this great event, I hand-picked the top-3 mistakes you can make when moving to Kubernetes. These are based on our own experience as a dev-facing company on a K8s journey, as well as the experience of our customers.

Why K3s Is the Future of Kubernetes at the Edge

By next year the number of connected devices will exceed 20 billion. The vast majority of these devices run on Arm architecture, increasingly at the infrastructure edge. With this growth in mind, the need for an agile, Arm-based development methodology has become increasingly urgent. Arm Neoverse provides the required IP for building the next gen of edge to cloud infrastructure to support the data explosion we are seeing, primarily caused by IoT.
