4 open source lessons for 2021 

2020 fundamentally changed how many companies and teams work—seemingly overnight, remote-first cultures became the new norm and people had to change how they communicate and collaborate. However, for those of us who have been deeply engaged in open source, remote work has been our norm for many years because open source communities are large, globally...Read more

Introducing the Cluster API Provider for Azure (CAPZ) for Kubernetes cluster management 

Managing Kubernetes clusters is hard. Managing Kubernetes clusters at scale across a variety of infrastructures is—well—even harder. The Kubernetes community project Cluster API (CAPI) enables users to manage fleets of clusters across multiple infrastructure providers. The Cluster API Provider for Azure (CAPZ) is the solution for users who need to manage Kubernetes clusters on Azure...Read more

Announcing Akri, an open source project for building a connected edge with Kubernetes 

Overview One of the hallmarks of “the edge” in computing is the array of sensors, controllers, and microcontroller unit (MCU) class devices that produce data and perform actions. For Kubernetes to be a versatile edge computing solution, a cluster needs to easily find these leaf devices. Most of these devices, however, are too small to...Read more

J4K: an all-star Java and Kubernetes speaker line-up in one conference  

J4K is a developer-oriented conference focused on open source and hybrid cloud application development of Java and Kubernetes. This is a community event, delivered by stellar Java community leaders, and is dedicated to enriching developers and architects with cloud-focused solutions. Registration is free.  Java has a rich history in enterprise applications and has evolved over the past two...Read more

Announcing Dapr integration in Azure API Management Service 

Dapr integration in the Azure API Management (APIM) service is now available. This new capability enables operations teams to directly expose Dapr microservices as APIs and make those APIs discoverable and easily consumable by developers with proper controls across multiple Dapr deployments—whether in the cloud, on-premises, or on the edge. Since its initial release last...Read more

Announcing Azure Functions extension for Dapr 

We’re excited to announce a new extension for Azure Functions that lets a function seamlessly interact with Dapr for building cloud-native applications. Azure Functions provides an event-driven programming model and Dapr provides a set of essential cloud-native building blocks. With this new extension, you can now bring both together for serverless and event-driven apps that...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

Join the Kubernetes Release Team: learn from and give back to the community 

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

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

Kubernetes v1.18 advances Windows container support 

As more users take advantage of Kubernetes for their Windows applications, the Windows community in Kubernetes has been working on improvements that enable even more use cases. With the release of Kubernetes v1.18, many of these changes are taking shape. In addition to the typical enrichment of testing, which makes every Kubernetes release more robust,...Read more
