Will Kubernetes collapse under the weight of its complexity?

Paul Dix, Founder and CTO of InfluxData, writes on the InfluxData blog: I attended and spoke at KubeCon EU. It was a massive event attended by around 4,700 people ... However, I felt there was an underlying problem ... everyone I spoke with was either an operator or an SRE. Where were all the application developers? Aren’t those the people that all this complex infrastructure is supposed to serve? Which raised questions for Paul, like... Is Kubernetes too complex? Will it end up collapsing under the weight of its own complexity? Will it fade away as OpenStack has seemed to since 2014? And Paul walked away from KubeCon EU with this perspective: Application developers would be better served by having a happy path to follow with the tools preselected ... CNCF’s increasing complexity and broader reach might dilute the focus and brand of Kubernetes ... I’m not sure what the answer might be to this or if I’m overblowing it, but from my perspective at the conference, it was like tool porn. Why bother with solving user problems when you can spend your entire career learning about and building new tools for infrastructure?

Titus, the Netflix container management platform, is now open source

Is Netflix Titus open source yet? Yes. Titus powers critical aspects of the Netflix business, from video streaming, recommendations and machine learning, big data, content encoding, studio technology, internal engineering tools, and other Netflix workloads So, why is Netflix open sourcing Titus? ...we’ve been asked over and over again, “When will you open source Titus?” It was clear that we were discussing ideas, problems, and solutions that resonated with those at a variety of companies, both large and small. We hope that by sharing Titus we are able to help accelerate like-minded teams, and to bring the lessons we’ve learned forward in the container management community. The question is, is it too late for Titus to gain traction in a world where Kubernetes has seemingly already won?

A best practice guide to Kubernetes security

K8s is a powerful platform which can be abused in many ways if not configured properly. Contributors to this guide are running Kubernetes in production and worked on several K8s projects to learn about security flaws the hard way. This guide scores major points for having battle-hardened contributors. I also dig how they indicate the severity/importance of each topic with an emoji. Look out for the 💥s!

Docker Compose and Kubernetes with Docker for desktop

Mike Coleman, Docker Technology Evangelist, writing on the Docker blog: If you’re running an edge version of Docker on your desktop (Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows Desktop), you can now stand up a single-node Kubernetes cluster with the click of a button. If you are running Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows, you now have a fully compliant Kubernetes cluster at your fingertips without installing any other tools.

Red Hat to acquire CoreOS

This is a big deal. We've been tracking CoreOS since the beginning — we're huge fans of Alex, Brandon and the team behind CoreOS. Red Hat has signed a definitive agreement to acquire CoreOS, Inc., an innovator and leader in Kubernetes and container-native solutions, for a purchase price of $250 million. Red Hat is a publicly traded company and while this announcement hasn't really impacted shareholder value (yet), we, the open source community have been immeasurably impacted by the team behind CoreOS. Also, check out Alex Polvi's announcement on the CoreOS blog which includes some details and backstory.

Scaling Kubernetes to 2,500 Nodes

Are you really pushing Kubernetes? No? OpenAI is... We’ve been running Kubernetes for deep learning research for over two years. While our largest-scale workloads manage bare cloud VMs directly, Kubernetes provides a fast iteration cycle, reasonable scalability, and a lack of boilerplate which makes it ideal for most of our experiments. We now operate several Kubernetes clusters (some in the cloud and some on physical hardware), the largest of which we’ve pushed to over 2,500 nodes. This cluster runs in Azure on a combination of D15v2 and NC24 VMs.
