The broad adoption of containers and the emergence of Kubernetes as a de facto standard have pushed the boundaries of cloud native development's impact even further. Containers, though not a prerequisite for microservices, provide the right packaging for the mass adoption of microservices. As with all new tech, however, when one problem is solved, another often emerges ...

Aligning development, security, and operations teams is not an easy feat, as teams' goals are often at odds with one another. Engineers want to work on high-impact projects. Security wants to avoid incidents at all costs, which often slows down other teams. Operations exist to deploy features and improvements as fast as possible. Breaking those silos and fostering collaboration in the name of shared security responsibility is key to success. Here are some considerations to consider to build a DevSecOps culture ...

In the cloud world, containers are the centerpoint of a growing majority of deployments. By providing compartmentalization of workloads and the ability to run "serverless," containers can speed up and secure deployments and create flexibility unreachable by old style application servers. While a variety of tools have been developed to meet this need, none are as impactful to the industry as Kubernetes. It has emerged as the de facto container orchestration tool for many companies ...
