Kubernetes is Not Your Platform, It's Just the Foundation

Kubernetes helps us tame sprawling microservices architectures and address increased operational complexity. Kubernetes gives developers abstractions and APIs to deploy and run their services. But there is a price to pay in terms of both the in-house operational expertise required and the...

The Evolution of Distributed Systems on Kubernetes

Cloud native applications of the future will consist of hybrid workloads: stateful applications, batch jobs, stateless microservices, functions, (and maybe something else too) wrapped as Linux containers and deployed via Kubernetes on any cloud. Functions and the so-called serverless computing...

Optimizing For Production Workloads

Breaking down the containers runtimes into their base functionality and then building them up into a series or core libraries and tools to specialize in core capabilities. Our goal is, rather then have one monolithic daemon to do all container management, to build up a series of tools that...

Delivering Data Persistence and More in Kubernetes

There is growing fervor to build every application with containers. While the goal of containers is to be disposable and immutable many application layers still require information to persist beyond the state of the container. This presents a significant challenge in expanding the number of...

The Evolution of Distributed Systems on Kubernetes

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you are currently working on.

I currently work for Red Hat as a Product Manager. I look after Data Integration and how data integration might look like in a cloud native world. Everything is moving on Kubernetes and OpenShift including data. I look after projects such as Debezium for Change Data Capture, Data Virtualization and helping drive the roadmap.
