Why Cloud Native Data Management Day Is About Stateful Data
No longer considered an ephemeral concept as it originally was, data management has become a huge issue and challenge, especially for managing stateless data in Kubernetes environments. Cloud Native Data Management Day at the recently held [sponsor_inline_mention slug="kubecon-cloudnativecon" ]KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe[/sponsor_inline_mention] event in May and the state of data management were the subject of discussion in this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack. The guests were Michael Cade, senior global technologist, Veeam Software and Nigel Poulton, owner of nigelpoulton.com, which offers Kubernetes and Docker training and other services.

A Different Perspective on Software Planning and Deployment
No matter how much we prepare, deployments don’t always go as planned. In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, Isabelle Miller, software engineer, LaunchDarkly, describes how DevOps teams can build processes to help remove unwanted surprises during release cycles — and why they do not need to be stressful.One of the main things Miller said she has discovered since joining LaunchDarkly at the beginning of 2020 is the importance of having procedures in place for when things do go wrong, “because things are going to go wrong,” she said.“You need to be able to manage that problem as quickly as possible, and minimize any harm before things get out of control when that happens,” said Miller. “So, one of the great things about working at LaunchDarkly is that I get to use our products. And one of the wonderful things about LaunchDarkly’s feature flags is that you can just turn things off.”

Data Persistence and Storage over Pancakes at KubeCon EU 2021
At this year’s KubeCon EU 2021, some things were the same — it was still virtual which meant it attracted a huge turnout of a more broadly international audience — and some things were different — like that almost everyone’s bought into Kubernetes and cloud native architecture, it’s now just how they use it. Another KubeCon tradition, The New Stack hosted a live pancake breakfast to reflect on the maturity of Kubernetes particularly around data persistence and storage.Our Publisher Alex Williams hosted this year’s very early discussion (at least for him) with Itzik Reich, VP of technologists, and Nivas Iyer, senior principal product manager, both at Dell Technologies, along with pancakes regular Cheryl Hung, VP of ecosystem at the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.

Developers Just Want To Know if They Have a Problem
Developers just want to know if they have a vulnerability before putting code into production. But often, the answer back is not what the developer wants to hear. More analysis is needed, the software security group will often reply, said Meera Rao, senior director of product management at Synopsys, in this latest episode of The New Stack Makers, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, Rao is the creator of a new intelligent orchestration technology that helps developers get their issues resolved without a long wait. That long wait is remedied by relying on Synopsys’ system to let developers know what’s wrong and whether specific security holes require immediate fixing or not.

What to Build First: Istio or Kubernetes?
What we do know about Kubernetes? It’s a raw, gaping maw. It’s not meant for most of us. What is needed? Access to the grinding, digital gears that make what we know of as distributed architectures. Istio is an example of a management layer for Kubernetes, said Zack Butcher, part of the founding engineering team at Tetrate, a service mesh company. He joins Varun Talwar, co-founder at Tetrate for a discussion about the service mesh Istio and its role in the management of highly distributed networks, including, of course, Kubernetes in this The New Stack Makers podcast. Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, hosted this episode.

The Insider’s Guide to KubeCon+CloudNativeCon EU 2021
In this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, hosted by Joab Jackson, managing editor for The New Stack, we speak two of the fabled conference’s key organizers about what to expect and what the organizers’ goals are: Priyanka Sharma, general manager for CNCF and Stephen Augustus, engineering director and head of open source at Cisco. This is no business-as-usual KubeCon conference, of course. Last year’s KubeCon EU was cancelled just a few weeks before the event was scheduled to take place. Then, many question marks remained during the early days of the pandemic about not only the future of conferences but how workers in the IT industry would continue to live and work. As it turns out, this year’s event is virtual, of course, and at the very least, there is no shortage of talks and events. All told, for KubeCon, experts from organizations including Adobe, Apple, CERN, Nvidia and OVHcloud will deliver more than 100 sessions, keynotes, lightning talks, and breakout sessions. There will also be more than 60 sessions hosted by project maintainers – spanning beginner-level introductions, end-user case studies and technical deep dives.

How Kasten’s Ongoing Contribution to Open Source Bears Fruit for Stateful Storage
This The New Stack Makers podcast explores the state of open source software today and features a case example of what is possible: Kasten by Veeam has created Kubestr to identify, validate and evaluate storage systems running in cloud native environments. As Michael Cade, a senior global technologist for Veeam, describes Kubestr, the open source tool provides information about what storage solutions are available for particular Kubernetes clusters and how well they are performing. The software project is also intended to offer DevOps teams an “easy button” to automate these processes. Hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, Cade and fellow guest Sirish Bathina, a software engineer, for Kasten, describe Kasten’s long-standing collaboration with the open source community and how Kubestr serves as case study example of both an ambitious open source project and what is possible today for stateful storage in Kubernetes environments.

K3s Gets its Due and its Own Day at KubeCon EU
In 2018, Kubernetes had become too big to run on Raspberry Pi. For a while, it meant that kubeadmin could not run on the micro-device. K3s changed that and represents a new take on Kubernetes: stripped of code, K3s is a lightweight version of Kubernetes meant to run on edge devices. Today, K3s is seeing a rise in popularity as are a host of other new services that focus on the edge for Kubernetes architectures. It’s now at the point that the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is planning Kubernetes on Edge Day at KubeCon, said Bill Mulligan, marketing manager for CNCF in a podcast recording with Alex Ellis, founder at OpenFaaS and the author of a new course on K3s that will be available for KubeCon, scheduled for May 4-7.

When Application Management Across the Net Requires ‘Google Maps’ Visibility
In this, The New Stack Makers podcast, hosted by Alex Williams, founder, and publisher of The New Stack, Joe Vaccaro, head of products, ThousandEyes, discussed today’s digital supply chain for the modern app experience and managing backend interdependencies. The days are long gone when users accessed data mainly through local area network (LAN) connections and ran applications stored on centralized servers in the data center. Conversely, in today’s highly distributed network experience, the user’s access to applications is through a vast contingent of network connections, supported by microservices and in multicloud environments. Application performance is also highly dependent on DNS and other network connections for which organizations often lack visibility into the complete digital supply chain. In many cases, for example, it is thus difficult to determine whether sub-par application performance is due to network connectivity or bad code in the stack.
