Businesses will eventually adopt a distributed architecture. But with #Kubernetes implemented to orchestrate container applications and persistent volumes that require data, it is critical for them to have strategies towards data management tasks like data protection, backup, migration, and recovery.

The goal for businesses is to have a storage layer and framework across different cloud environments for protecting critical business data orchestrated within Kubernetes clusters. In this eBrief, we will understand the basics of existing tools and frameworks that can be used to achieve data protection, replication, and migration.

A Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model of cloud computing brings lots of power to the end-users. It provides a platform to the end customers to develop, run, and manage applications without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure typically associated with developing and launching an application. …

The shift to remote working is pushing more and more businesses to adopt cloud technology. However, that is leaving them vulnerable to cyber-attacks on corporate infrastructure and remote users. Integrating a cloud infrastructure with business IT infrastructure is always a shared responsibility between the IT staff/developers and cloud service providers. Due to the unusual events set in motion by the Covid-19 pandemic, the previous cloud security tactics have become obsolete and several new security concerns are emerging, which the IT and product leaders need to be aware of.

This eBrief will help business decision makers to identify the exact concerns pertaining to cloud security and the key solutions that will help them safeguard their critical resources.

In past five years, enterprises are increasingly focusing a large part of their security budgets on protecting endpoint devices that are a part of their network, generating and sending data to servers and databases. This is due to the increase in the number of attacks originating at those end user…

ServiceNow is a leading ITSM platform adopted by many enterprises to manage their assets in various departments. It enables enterprises to provide services based on tickets and alerts from different departments. Threat detection and response is crucial for enterprises to keep their internal digital assets secure. Nowadays, we can leverage machine learning techniques to identify malicious activities around enterprise assets and take action before malware breaks into systems. By integrating with security products and solutions, ServiceNow can extend the security efforts for automated alerts, ticket raising, and incidence response.

In this eBrief, we have discussed the capabilities of the ServiceNow platform for security integration and how security platforms can be configured with ServiceNow for this purpose.

Two security vulnerabilities have been discovered in Kubernetes that can cause the denial of service attacks. Security researchers have found these issues in Kubernetes’s Kubelet and API server modules. Issues have been rated as medium level and that can be recovered.

If an attacker that can make an authorized resource…

Kubernetes adoption has seen a remarkable rise in the last couple of years. According to a CNCF survey conducted in 2019, 78% of respondents were using Kubernetes in production, a jump from 58% in 2018. But the security concerns raised in 2019 were alarming for those who have Kubernetes in…

The process of gaining business intelligence will be never-ending as more devices are added to IoT. But this puts pressure on data processing and storage infrastructure at edge gateways level, and later on cloud. However, there are bottlenecks in terms of providing data processing at the speed of near to real time and that is the focus of this eBrief. This eBrief talks about the technology drivers that are empowering data centers to transport data at the speed of light and provide a mechanism to enable parallel data processing.

Interoperability between different service meshes will be critical for customers seeking to interconnect a wide variety of workloads. Yesterday, VMware announced an open-source project for service mesh interoperability, partnering with Google Cloud, Pivotal Software, Inc., and HashiCorp. This initiative will facilitate federation of service discovery between different service meshes of potentially different vendors. Through an API, service meshes can be interconnected to deliver the associated benefits of observability, control, and security across different organizational unit boundaries, and potentially across different products and vendors. The project will soon be opened to the community, and anyone interested in contributing to this effort can do so on GitHub.

Businesses and enterprises opt for Service Mesh post the transformation of their applications into Containerized and Microservices based architecture. Load balancing, service discovery along with proper encryption and authentication is a prerequisite among all connected sub set of services. Without service mesh, modernized service ecosystem will not be enabled to deliver 100% performance to business operations. To deal with this complication, various efforts have been taken by leading public cloud providers and open communities.

This ebook will be helpful for architects and product managers to understand the service mesh ecosystem. It covers service mesh aspects such as

  • Introduction & Workflow
  • Architectural: Control Plane & Data Plane
  • Service Mesh Benefits
  • Service Mesh Frameworks
  • Commercial Solutions
  • Presence in Public Cloud
