Software container company CoreOS Inc. is making its technology more accessible with the general availability of its “self-driving Kubernetes platform” Tectonic on the Microsoft Azure cloud. The move comes as CoreOS announces the simultaneous release of Tectonic 1.7, which comes with improvements such as automated operations enabling one-click updates of Kubernetes, and monitoring alerts. CoreOS said the availability of Tectonic on Microsoft Azure means that it has delivered on its vision of bringing more freedom and portability to the cloud. Containers are portable software wrappers for applications, enabling them to run unchanged on multiple computers and operating systems.

Cartesi creates Linux infrastructure for blockchain DApps

Article | April 20, 2020

DApps (sometimes called Dapps) are from the blockchain universe and so, logically, the apps part stands for application (obviously) and the D part stands for decentralised (only obvious once you know that we’re talking distributed immutable language here). According to the guides section at blockgeeks, DApps are open source in terms of code base, incentivised (in terms of who validates it) and essentially decentralised so that all records of the application’s operation must be stored on a public and decentralised blockchain to avoid pitfalls of centralisation. So then, Cartesi is a DApp infrastructure that runs an operating system (OS) on top of blockchains. The company has now launched a more complete ‘platform-level’ offering, which is described as a layer-2 solution

Why enterprises are going all-in on hyperscale

Article | February 10, 2020

Cloud computing continues to dominate the technology space, with cloud migration yielding a rain of opportunities and benefits. To date, achieving massive scale in computing power and data storage is a priority for organizations looking to mature in digital transformation. Hyperscale infrastructure is designed exclusively for that purpose, and it offers increasingly relevant features such as high levels of performance and high tolerance and room for error as well as redundancy. A recent report showed enterprises are leaning towards hyperscalers for cloud services as compared to second-tier providers.

ARE COMPANIES INVESTING TOO MUCH IN DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE?

Article | April 27, 2020

Data science and big data analytics have become the new must-haves for businesses across many industries. Gone are the days when algorithm development and large-scale data mining were confined to Silicon Valley. In the modern, tech-savvy age, it’s almost an afterthought that banks, insurance brokerages, healthcare entities, and other non-tech-sector companies seek to be “the next Apple/Google/Amazon” or whatever tech behemoth completes the C-suite’s bromide. This is true not just in word, but in deed.

Benefits of Kubernetes on bare metal cloud infrastructure

Article | March 3, 2020

Bare metal cloud infrastructure is being introduced to run 5G applications in containers. This is a natural development of the shift the industry is going through from virtualized network functions to cloud native applications. But what are the benefits of running Kubernetes on a bare metal cloud infrastructure compared to a virtualized infrastructure? Let’s start with a brief recap on cloud native and CNCF – Cloud Native Computing Foundation. With the introduction of 5G, new use cases drive the need for designing applications based on containers and service-based architecture to address some technology gaps associated with virtualization. The most important technology gaps involve smoother software upgrades, automation and the realization of a CI/CD software pipeline to end customers.
