Alex Delgado, a security engineer at the Gremlin chaos testing service, points to the disconnect many enterprises have. It’s not that the developers aren’t building with the newest technologies like Kubernetes and microservices. It’s just that security and compliance haven’t even heard of these things. And it's increasing risk.
“You can’t secure something that you don’t know how it works,” he said, on this episode of The New Stack Makers, where Delgado reflects on his past at a security and defense enterprise and his present at scale-up Gremlin. He began his career in customer support and then remediation of customer concerns. That put him in an interesting but often frustrating position as he moved into security, which had him throwing code over the wall that was released maybe three months down the line.

Building software at scale and at velocity requires a great deal of infrastructure, process, and management. While some companies like Facebook and Google may make it seem like CI/CD is easy to build, in reality, both of these companies have spent billions of dollars optimizing their build pipelines and enabling developers to be more productive by removing barriers in the build/test/fix feedback loop.

When building front-end software, it can be tricky to figure out just what works. As with any page layout endeavor, from the Web to the supermarket checkout line tabloids, there are plenty of nooks and crannies to explore with headlines, graphics, and colors. Any software shop earning money on the Web likely already knows about "A/B" testing: the practice of subtle changing your page design and gathering metrics on its effectiveness at converting visitors versus the existing version of the site.

As more organizations begin the transition to a container and microservices-based infrastructure, they are maintaining and integrating legacy systems, which pose a security challenge. Some cloud service providers have not kept up with the higher security demands that today's cloud-native architectures demand, leaving IT teams to wonder how to best secure their multi-cloud environment across both legacy and new architectures.

For this episode of The New Stack Makers, Host TC Currie is joined by Steve Herrod, VC at General Catalyst where he focuses on infrastructure. He recently published an article on LinkedIn called Cloud vs. Edge – This is Not a Cage Match.
“It comes down to the use cases,” Herrod said about the difference between Cloud and Edge computing, "You don’t want your car’s IoT chip to have to go to the cloud before it decides to make the turn, but it’s faster to go to the cloud to crunch a bunch of sensor data from thousands of IoT devices."

Here’s something that probably doesn’t cross most developers’ minds: In a distributed system whose components don’t share state with one another, how does one produce an application whose stated goal, if you will, is to create and maintain a state — specifically, something learned?

HPE OneSphere is a platform built for a time when Kubernetes has established itself as a stable enough technology that makes it capable of serving IT operations and developers in one SaaS deployment.
With Kubernetes under the hood, HPE OneSphere speaks to the new dimensions of IT and developer experiences that share the same environments, have container technologies for packaging and version control to allow for the use of multiple components across different infrastructure.
