Roll Them Bones

As Kubernetes and microservices reshape the landscape of modern computing, we’re seeing businesses placing big bets - especially in enterprise. Read on to find out how IBM and Intel are leveraging Kubernetes for hybrid integration and machine learning. We also have something to help businesses make sound decisions as they adopt Kubernetes, a really great tutorial for developers looking to start learning, and a glimpse at the future of CD pipelines.

Issue #53

Make no mistake: the folks trying to sell you hybrid integration platforms have no idea what’s HIP! For truly hybrid IT, ditch the bimodal offerings and instead look ahead to the meshianic age of cloud native integration.

Distribute your workload in the public cloud, or on a local Xeon cluster! Intel is using Kubernetes to double down on multi-user machine learning in the enterprise space. But if it’s Nauta deep learning platform, then what is it?

Sherlock Holmes seems to have learned more at his elementary school than dear Watson, but now there’s hope: Kubernetes has brought open enrollment to the cloud, so Watson can go and learn wherever we’re willing to send him.

The best way to learn a new tech is to use it to build something simple! Bonus points if it’s completely unnecessary. This guide will have you deploying three pods: one InfluxDB database, one Grafana dashboard, and one cron job to gather data from Twitter. It’s a great way to learn the Kubernetes fundamentals and understand how pods work together in a cluster.

If you thought you had continuous delivery pipelines all figured out, I have to warn you, the new Kubernetes approach is really gonna mesh you up.

If your business is thinking of adopting Kubernetes, make sure to do it right. DIY is a major footgun. These key considerations will help guide your thinking to set you up for success.
