Kubernetes, microservices and the advent of cloud native deployments have created a Renaissance era in computing. As developers write and deploy code as part of continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) production processes, an explosion of tools has emerged for CI/CD processes, often targeted for cloud native deployments.
“Basically, when we all started looking at microservices as a possible paradigm of development, we needed to learn how to operationalize them,” Priyanka Sharma, director of alliances at GitLab and a member of the governing board at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), said. “That was something new for all of us. And from a very good place, a lot of technology came out, whether it's open source projects or vendors who are going to help us with every niche problem we were going to face.”
