Kubernetes networking model says that any pod can reach any other pod at the target pod’s IP by default, but discovering those IPs and maintaining that list while pods are potentially being rescheduled — resulting in them getting an entirely new IP — by hand would be a lot of tedious, fragile work. In this post, I’ll explain how to configure networking services in Kubernetes to allow pods to communicate reliably with each other.
I reviewed the basic setup for building applications in Kubernetes in part 1 of this blog series. In this post, I’ll explain how to use pods and controllers to create scalable processes for managing your applications. The heart of any application is its running processes, and in Kubernetes we fundamentally create processes as pods. Pods are a bit fancier than individual containers, in that they can schedule whole groups of containers, co-located on a single host.
Kubernetes’ complexity is overwhelming for a lot of people jumping in for the first time. In this blog series, I’m going to walk you through the basics of architecting an application for Kubernetes, with a tactical focus on the actual Kubernetes objects you’re going to need.
Docker support for cross-platform applications is better than ever. At this month’s Docker Virtual Meetup, we featured Docker Architect Elton Stoneman showing how to build and run truly cross-platform apps – including Arm, Intel, Linux and Windows – using Docker’s buildx functionality.
Already available as part of Docker Trusted Registry, personal access tokens can now be used as a substitute for your password in Docker Hub, especially for integrating your Hub account with other tools. You’ll be able to leverage these tokens for authenticating your Hub account from the Docker CLI.
ey has been around for over 200 years. One of the really amazing things about being in an organization that’s been around that long is that you have to have a culture of innovation at your core. Technology like Docker has really empowered our business because it allows us to innovate, and it allows us to experiment. That’s critical because experimentation and being allowed to fail is what allows us to innovate and learn.
We sat down recently with InterSystems, our partner and customer, to talk about how they deliver an enterprise database at scale to their customers. InterSystems’s software powers mission-critical applications at hospitals, banks, government agencies and other organizations.
Last year at DockerCon and Microsoft Connect, we announced the Cloud Native Application Bundle (CNAB) specification in partnership with Microsoft, HashiCorp, and Bitnami. Since then the CNAB community has grown to include Pivotal, Intel, DataDog, and others, and we are all happy to announce that the CNAB core specification has reached 1.0.
