People often think in terms of x versus y, but it’s not always a question of one technology versus another. Ben Hindman explains how Mesos can complement other technologies.

Mesos and Kubernetes: It's Not a Competition

The roots of Mesos can be traced back to 2009 when Ben Hindman was a PhD student at the University of California, Berkeley working on parallel programming. They were doing massive parallel computations on 128-core chips, trying to solve multiple problems such as making software and libraries run...

The Future of Kubernetes Is Serverless

As we move forward, it’s becoming increasingly clear (to me at least) that the future will be containerized and those containers will run on serverless infrastructure. In this context, then, the obvious question is: “What becomes of orchestration in this serverless future?” Kubernetes is a...

As Kubernetes Surged in Popularity in 2017, It Created a Vibrant Ecosystem

For a technology that the average person has probably never heard of, Kubernetes surged in popularity in 2017 with a particular group of IT pros who are working with container technology. Kubernetes is the orchestration engine that underlies how operations staff deploy and manage containers at...

Containers and Kubernetes: What's Next?

If you want a basic idea of where containers are headed in the near future, follow the money. There’s a lot of it: 451 Research projects that the overall market for containers will hit roughly $2.7 billion in 2020, a 3.5-fold increase from the $762 million spent on container-related technology in...

This Week in Numbers: Container Storage Preferences for Kubernetes

The types of logical storage structures used in today’s Kubernetes deployments offer some deeper revelations into the nature of workloads being deployed. Block storage is king, having been cited by two-thirds (66 percent) of respondents in our survey for The State of the Kubernetes Ecosystem as...

Kubernetes is Transforming Operations in the Enterprise

At many organizations, managing containerized applications at scale is the order of the day (or soon will be). And few open source projects are having the impact in this arena that Kubernetes is. Above all, Kubernetes is ushering in “operations transformation” and helping organizations make the...

Continuous Deployment Plugins for Kubernetes and Azure Container Service

We have created a Azure Container Service (ACS) plugin for Jenkins, so that no matter which ACS orchestrator you have chosen, you can continuously deploy to that cluster from Jenkins with the same, simple plugin. Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open-source tools and...

Your Container Orchestration Needs: Kubernetes vs. Mesos vs. Docker Swarm

On a recent client project, I’ve been asked to compare the 3 main players on the market for container orchestration and cluster management solution, these are Kubernetes, Docker Swarm and Mesos (a.k.a Data Center Operating System). Last year in October a feature comparison matrix was created by the...

Compose your Infrastructure, Don’t Micromanage It

TLDR: Leverage Kubernetes annotations across your cluster to declaratively configure management of monitoring and logging. Two of the largest surfaces of applications that make contact with infrastructure are monitoring and logging, and this post talks how to approach both these needs in a scalable...

The Kubernetes family tree shows how Borg has inspired current datacenter systems and the underlying technologies used in container runtimes today.

How Google's Borg Inspired the Modern Datacenter

In part one of this series, What Is Kubernetes?, and in part two, Why Choose Kubernetes to Manage Containerized Applications?, we learned what Kubernetes does, its architecture, and how it compares to similar container orchestrators. Now we'll learn how Kubernetes was descended from the secret...
