Cloud-native application security is a cloud-first approach used to deploy applications securely at scale by embedding security into the software development lifecycle to detect vulnerabilities earlier. This article will walk through the critical challenges of cloud-native application security, demonstrate how to build security into the CI/CD pipeline, and introduce the core practices of cloud-native security.
Infrastructure as Code for Cloud-Native Applications
Enterprises are embracing cloud-native technologies to migrate their monolithic services to a microservices architecture. Containers, microservices, container orchestration, automated deployments, and real-time monitoring enable you to take advantage of cloud-native capabilities. However, the infrastructure required to run cloud-native apps differs from traditional ones.
Monitoring Kubernetes in Production
Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration system for automating the deployment and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes provides capabilities like service discovery, horizontal autoscaling, and load balancing, while ensuring that application configurations are declarative and that systems are self-healing.
Securing Cloud-Native Applications
Organizations are rapidly embracing cloud-native design patterns to modernize their business operations and enable faster time to market. Cloud-native architecture combines technologies like microservices, containers, automated CI/CD pipelines, container orchestration, unified observability, and cloud infrastructure.
Top 5 Challenges in DevOps Adoption
In this article, I will explain how DevOps can help you gain a competitive edge. I’ll also dive deep into the top challenges of DevOps adoption.
KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA 2020 – Day 1 Highlights
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference – ‘KubeCon + CloudNativeCon NA’ kicked off today with more than 22000 attendees. I was very impressed with the virtual event platform, which allows you to attend sessions, network with other attendees, and network with… Read More ›
Cloud Native Monitoring with Prometheus
Prometheus is an open source metrics-based monitoring and alerting system. In 2016 the Prometheus project became the second member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, after Kubernetes. It has a powerful query language(PromQL) with a multidimensional data model suited to store time series data.
Microservices Journey from Netflix OSS to Istio Service Mesh
Netflix OSS is a set of libraries & framework that Netflix open sourced to solve the issues with designing distributed systems at scale. In this blog post, you will understand the issues with the Netflix OSS libraries and why organizations are adapting the Sidecar Design pattern and Service Mesh technologies.
Istio Service Mesh Data Plane
The Istio Data Plane is primarily comprised of the Envoy proxies which are attached as dedicated sidecars to each application instance. Istio Data Plane intercepts all incoming(Ingress) and outgoing(Egress) network traffic. This and gives us the ability to apply all the features at this layer, without polluting the application code.
CNCF Cloud Native Landscape and Trail Map
The Cloud Native Ecosystem is constantly evolving and continues to grow at a fast pace. The usage of Cloud Native Technologies in Production has tremendously increased during the recent past.
