The Berkeley Packet Filter is ancient history. It was created in 1992 at Lawrence Berkeley Labs as a way better filter and sort network packets. In the early 2000's it was at the heart of the long running SCO versus Linux lawsuit. Today, it's just another raw interface included with Linux. Recently, however, BPF has become a bit of an interesting topic, as it's become a popular replacement for IPTables.
Thomas Graf, CTO and co-founder at Covalent. is also the leader of the Cilium Project. Cilium offers API-aware networking and security for Kubernetes users based on BPF. Graf said that the power of BPF can be tough to utilize in Kubernetes, and so the Cilium Project is aimed at making that easier.

Shannon Williams has played a very hands-on role in launching software for over 20 years. Recently, after observing the power and potential of containerization, Williams co-founded Rancher Labs in 2014, after successfully creating Cloud.com (now owned by Citrix Systems).
Since 2014, things have changed. Kubernetes, of course, has emerged as the standard containerization platform, prompting Rancher to go “all Kubernetes” with its recent production release of Rancher’s namesake product Rancher 2.0.

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.

Artificial intelligence may be at the peak of its hype cycle for modern businesses, but for the IT administrator it is still a headache, requiring software and processes that may entirely outside the normal sphere of operations. But help is on the way. At Kubecon + CloudNativeCon 2018 last month, David Aronchick introduced the first working version (0.1) of Kubeflow, software that packages the most popular AI and machine learning software so it can be easily run on the Kubernetes container orchestration engine.

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.

As organizations look to DevOps as a means to achieve digital transformation, they realize they must accelerate the end-to-end software delivery process, and also make it safer.
“It can seem like a boil-the-ocean type of problem. That makes it hard to figure out how you’re going to incrementally derive value from it,” said Andrew Phillips, a product manager in Google Cloud Platform’s DevOps division, in this episode of The New Stack Makers.

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.
