The Open Application Model reaches a new milestone with v1Alpha2 and Crossplane 

In March of this year, the Open Application Model (OAM) specification reached the second draft milestone of the spec, dubbed v1Alpha2. This draft was a collaborative effort with the OAM community and the community behind Crossplane—a forward-thinking open source project that enables you to use the Kubernetes API to provision and manage cloud infrastructure, services,...Read more

Announcing cloud-native workflows using Dapr and Logic Apps 

The Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr) project is growing rapidly are we’re grateful for all the community support and customer feedback. While working with customers building business applications, we find that one of the most frequent needs is the ability to schedule, automate, and orchestrate business processes. This is often called a business workflow. Workflows also...Read more

Scaling Kubernetes: Intro to Kubernetes-based event-driven autoscaling (KEDA) 

A Kubernetes cluster requires compute resources to run applications and these resources may need to increase or decrease depending on the application requirements. This typically falls under the category of “scaling” and can be broadly divided into cluster and application scaling. To deal with increasing requirements, such as high traffic, you can scale out your...Read more

Helm, the package manager for Kubernetes, now a CNCF graduated project 

Yesterday, Helm became a graduated project in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), joining a select group of projects that the CNCF recognizes for achieving majority adoption by the cloud-native community. I want to extend congratulations and thanks both to the creators of Helm, as well as to the broader Helm community that has supported,...Read more

Thinking about joining the Kubernetes Release Team? Curious what it even is? As someone who started as a shadow on the Communications team for the 1.16 and 1.17 Release Team and eventually became the Communications Lead for the 1.18 release, I want to share what I’ve learned from this journey and answer any questions you may have about the Release Team. ...Read more

WebAssembly meets Kubernetes with Krustlet 

Linux container technology has changed the face of computing, but especially distributed computing in publicly rentable servers commonly said to be “the public cloud” (like Microsoft Azure). With containers came tooling – like Docker – and systems that orchestrate potentially millions of them – with Kubernetes becoming the most widely used. Together, they have enabled millions of developers and organizations to deliver software more rapidly, widely, and productively...Read more

Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA) joins the CNCF as a sandbox project 

Last year Microsoft and Red Hat announced Kubernetes Event-driven Autoscaling (KEDA) – a way to bring event scale for any container or workload deployed into any Kubernetes cluster. Since then, we have been blown away by the response from the community in helping to make KEDA even better. Our mission from the beginning was to...Read more
