  • Choosing the Right Cloud Infrastructure for Your SaaS Start-up

    As a solutions architect, I have been designing SaaS applications for years and I have seen start-ups struggle to find the right cloud infrastructure and improve their product offering. These experiences prompted me to write this article as a tool to help companies make a pragmatic fact and data-driven decision.

  • What Does Zero Trust Mean for Kubernetes?

    Zero trust is a powerful security model that’s at the forefront of modern security practices. It’s also a term that is prone to buzz and hype, making it hard to cut through the noise. So what is zero trust, exactly, and for Kubernetes, what does it mean in concrete terms? In this article, we’ll explore what zero trust is from an engineering perspective.

  • AI, ML, and Data Engineering InfoQ Trends Report—August 2022

    In this annual report, the InfoQ editors discuss the current state of AI, ML, and data engineering and what emerging trends you as a software engineer, architect, or data scientist should watch. We curate our discussions into a technology adoption curve with supporting commentary to help you understand how things are evolving.

  • Managing Kubernetes Secrets with the External Secrets Operator

    Kubernetes doesn’t yet have the capabilities to manage the lifecycle of secrets, so sometimes we need external systems to manage this sensitive information. Once the amount of secret information we need to manage increases, we may need additional tools to simplify and better manage the process. In this article, we’ll take a detailed look at one of these tools, the External Secrets Operator.

  • Discovering the Versatility of OpenEBS

    OpenEBS provides storage for stateful applications running on Kubernetes, including dynamic local persistent volumes or replicated volumes using various "data engines". OpenEBS can address a wide range of applications, from casual testing and experimentation to high-performance production workloads

  • The Compounding (Business) Value of Composable Ecosystems

    Being “free” and open source doesn’t hinder the value of these projects to businesses and end users; rather it unlocks it. The composability of open source ecosystems allows the innovation and value of the whole ecosystem to compound on itself.

  • Embracing Cloud-Native for Apache DolphinScheduler with Kubernetes: a Case Study

    This article shares how Apache DolphinScheduler was updated to use a more modern, cloud-native architecture. This includes moving to Kubernetes and integrating with Argo CD and Prometheus. This improves substantially the user experience of deploying, operating, and monitoring DolphinScheduler.

  • Developing a Cloud-Native Application on Microsoft Azure Using Open Source Technologies

    Cloud native is a development approach that improves building, maintainability, scalability, and deployment of applications. My intention with this article is to explain, in a pragmatic way, how to build, deploy, run, and monitor a simple cloud-native application on Microsoft Azure using open-source technologies.

  • Reproducible Development with Devcontainers

    Devcontainers provide a reproducable, reusable, simplified developer experience. Get a tour of a devcontainer including how they work, how to use them most efficiently, and how they differ to deployment containers.

  • Reduce Carbon Dioxide Emissions with Serverless and Kubernetes Native Java

    Moving application workloads to multi- and hybrid cloud platforms causes more carbon dioxide emissions, although better scalability and performance. Serverless and Kubernetes Native Java enable developers to solve the global climate changes by reducing carbon dioxide emissions by natively native features with milliseconds first boot time, tiny resident set size memory and scalability.

  • Article Series: Native Compilation Boosts Java

    Java dominates enterprise applications. But in the cloud, Java is more expensive than some competitors. Native compilation makes Java in the cloud cheaper. It raises many questions for all Java users: How does native Java change development? When should we switch to native Java? When should we not? And what framework should we use for native Java? This series provides answers to these questions.

  • Kubernetes Native Java with Quarkus

    Quarkus is an industry leader in startup time and memory utilization for native and JVM-based Java applications. This reduces cloud costs. Kubernetes is a first-class deployment platform in Quarkus with support for its primitives and features. Developers can use their Java knowledge of APIs like Jakarta EE, MicroProfile, Spring, etc. Applications can be imperative or reactive - or both!
