  • Using Cloud Native Buildpacks to Address Security Requirements for the Software Supply Chain

    Software supply chain attacks are increasing in severity and frequency, with no clear path laid out towards its mitigation. A simple way to trace the origin of vulnerable components is available in the form of Software Bill Of Materials (SBOMs), generated automatically when using Buildpacks.

  • Implementing Pipeline Microservicilities with Tekton

    Microservicilities is a list of cross-cutting concerns that a service must implement apart from the business logic. These concerns include invocation, elasticity and resiliency, among others. This article describes how a service mesh such as Istio may be used to implement these concerns.

  • Implementing Microservicilites with Istio

    Microservicilities is a list of cross-cutting concerns that a service must implement apart from the business logic. These concerns include invocation, elasticity and resiliency, among others. This article describes how a service mesh such as Istio may be used to implement these concerns.

  • Containers Are Contagious and Often Misused

    Let’s get something straight right right from the start— this article is not to argue that containers are bad; containers are certainly one of many great options developers have in their hands today. This article is also not scoped at the pros/cons of containers; my intent is just to present the developers and dev leads with some considerations around containers.

  • Implementing Microservicilities with Quarkus and MicroProfile

    Microservicilities is a list of cross-cutting concerns that a service must implement apart from the business logic. These concerns include invocation, elasticity and resiliency, among others. This article describes how Quarkus and MicroProfile may be used to implement these concerns.

  • Cloud Native and Kubernetes Observability: Expert Panel

    InfoQ recently caught up with Observability experts to discuss several topics including fundamental questions about what Observability really entails, the misconceptions and challenges that the users are facing, the open standards that are influencing the industry in general and why there is more interest in this area off late.

  • Article Series: Building Microservices in Java

    This article series will explore the state-of-the-art in building microservice-based architectures using the Java language. Alongside popular stalwarts, such as Spring Boot and Dropwizard, newer frameworks, such as Quarkus, Micronaut and Helidon, have been gaining momentum. These frameworks emerged after MicroProfile was introduced to the Java community in 2016.

  • The Evolution of Distributed Systems on Kubernetes

    At QCon in March, Bilgin Ibryam, product manager at Red Hat, gave a talk on the evolution of distributed systems with Kubernetes. You might have an answer to that, and Ibryam has one too. At the end of the article, you will find out what he thinks the answer will be.

  • Kubernetes Is Not Your Platform, It's Just the Foundation

    Manuel Pais discusses how many organizations see Kubernetes as "the" platform, rather than just a technical foundation for a true internal platform. Successful Kubernetes adoption requires thinking about the platform as a product and establishing product-like team structures and interactions to reduce cognitive load on development and other stream teams. Metrics can help guide the journey.

  • Cloud-Native Is about Culture, Not Containers

    At QCon London last year, Holly Cummins, innovation leader in IBM Corporate Strategy, provided a session titled: Cloud-Native is about Culture, not Containers. In this article, Cummins will discuss the role of culture in cloud-native architecture. Furthermore, she will dive into various topics around cloud-native ranging from its definition to CI/CD and operations.

  • Experts Discuss Top Kubernetes Trends and Production Challenges

    Kubernetes growth has led to cultural, technological and operational challenges. InfoQ caught up with Kubernetes experts and implementers who talk about 2-3 top trends and challenges that are facing the platform.

  • Performance Analysis for Arm vs x86 CPUs in the Cloud

    In this article, the author uses AWS’s Arm (Graviton2) and x86_64 (Intel) EC2 instances to evaluate computational performance across different software runtimes, including Docker, Node.js, and WebAssembly. Our conclusion is that Arm is more cost effective in the cloud, especially with lightweight runtimes that are close to the underlying operating system.
