At KubeCon in Copenhagen in May, many talks focused on the work required to build continuous integration and continuous deployment pipelines using containers. One of the major issue still remaining in the container world is specifically that last bit of the CI/CD pipeline: building, storing, and securing containers built for internal software projects.
Steve Speicher, principal product manager on the Red Hat OpenShift Team, spent a good deal of time at KubeCon looking into the solutions and remaining pain points that exist around dynamically building and managing containers within a more traditional agile development environment. "A lot of people want to leverage Kubernetes for the build in the pipeline itself, and so that's one of the things we're talking about here and learning more about what people are interested in to leverage the platform to do more CI/CD," said Speicher.

With all the excitement around containers and Kubernetes, it can be easy to forget that these systems still require the same types of help that older virtual machine and hardware-based systems needed. Chief among that list of needs is security. We sat down at KubeCon in Copenhagen to discuss this very topic with Liz Rice, Technology Evangelist at Aqua Security, Justin Cappos, Associate Professor Computer Science and Engineering at the NYU - Tandon School of Engineering.
Episode 304: Red Hat's Michael Hausenblas Discusses The State Of Functions As A Service On Kubernetes

Michael Hausenblas, Red Hat developer advocate for OpenShift, still prefers the term Functions as a Service. In the push to expand the serverless capabilities of Kubernetes, Hausenblas, at KubCon in May, told us that one of the key desires for enterprises is to be able to host Amazon Lambda-like functionality internally as well as in public clouds. He expects as more users adopt serverless functions, that developers will increasingly become comfortable with function accessibility via APIs.

Back in May, the world's biggest Kubernetes users and contributors gathered in Denmark for KubeCon Europe. One of the topics we were keen to see addressed by this meeting of the minds was the future of Kubernetes, and the CNCF as a whole.

There is no single, best set of tools for continu…There is no single, best set of tools for continuous integration / continuous development (CI/CD) with Kubernetes — each organization will use the tools that are best suited for its specific use case. For this reason, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) does not advocate for one toolset over another when it comes to building, deploying and managing applications on Kubernetes, says Ihor Dvoretskyi, developer advocate at the CNCF. However, they do analyze what integrations and support are needed in the Kubernetes core and identify CI/CD trends in the process.

At KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Copenhagen in early May, we caught up with Red Hat's newest CTO, Brandon Philips, to discuss the state of CoreOS and containers as a whole. Philips and his team were acquired by Red Hat back in January, and the pairing has focused a good amount of Linux thought leadership onto the Kubernetes project. In Copenhagen, he and Diane Mueller, director of community development at Red Hat, sat down to talk about what it's been like merging the CoreOS and Red Hat teams.

On this episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Editor-in-Chief Alex Williams sits down with Chris Aniszczyk, COO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, and Torin Sandall, a Software Engineer at Styra, to discuss how the Open Policy Agent (OPA) is a secure, simple, and compliant way to manage services.
"From a CNCF perspective, policy was a missing piece within our cloud native landscape," Aniszczyk explained, discussing why the Foundation on-boarded OPA.

Service mesh technologies are being used in production just six months after the KubeCon North America keynotes that explored what a service mesh is, and its benefits to both organizations and developers. Many are still attempting to truly grasp what a service mesh offers, particularly as observability and compatibility concerns are raised.

Back at the end of March, the CNCF accepted a new sandbox project for identity management. The project is called SPIFFE, which stands for Secure Production Identity Framework For Everyone. It's being supported by Amazon, Google and Red Hat, but at the center of the project is Scytale, a startup founded specifically for SPIFFE.

The goal for the Kubernetes community in 2018 is to make Kubernetes rock solid. Over the past year, the community has focused on building out the Kubernetes core. Networking, security and storage are all examples of Kubernetes projects that have matured quite a bit in the past year. For the new year, we shouldn’t necessarily expect major changes or even Kubernetes 2.0. Instead, it's a year to focus on the basics, providing a base on which different distribution providers can build out their unique offerings.
