Tekton, Containers and Kubernetes

  • Why now’s a great time to use the Tekton Dashboard

    Over the past year, Tekton’s usage has grown significantly. However, as a Tekton enthusiasts, I’ve grown tired of trawling through YAML, using kubectl logs, describing or getting pods, and either forgetting to use -n or using kubens every few commands. I bet you can relate and are probably thinking, like I am, that there has to be a better way to learn about what’s going on with your Tekton resources.

    In this blog, I discuss the Tekton Dashboard, which has been around for a while. The Tekton team is always adding new features, listening to community feedback, and continuously pushing out releases. It’s certainly not intended as a guide to all things Tekton, but definitely serves as a great incentive to give Tekton a try and hopefully contribute to the community. It also resolves a few of the issues I mentioned above. Now let’s dive in!

  • Platform9 Adds More Tiers to Kubernetes Service [Ed: "Freedom plan" does not include actual freedom and conflates this concept with something like "clown computing]

    Platform9 today launched a managed Kubernetes service, dubbed the Freedom plan, that provides free access to Kubernetes clusters of up to 20 nodes spanning a maximum of 800 virtual CPUs running on three clusters.

    In addition, Platform9 is adding a separate Growth plan that provides access to 50 nodes spanning a maximum of 2,000 virtual CPUs for IT teams that need to scale a Kubernetes environment quickly. Priced less than $500 per month with a minimum of three nodes, the Growth plan comes with 24×7 support and a 99.9% service level agreement (SLA), according to Platform9.

  • Interoperability of open-source tools: the emergence of interfaces [Ed: Free software after 2 decades of openwashing attacks is reduced to "standards" (shims) and "interop" (between binary blobs with back doors)]

    In the past years, Kubernetes has been the nucleus of container orchestration frameworks. Numerous tools have been developed to extend Kubernetes capabilities and enhance its features. Over time, tools with similar functionalities would have fundamentally different implementations and practices to converge with the Kubernetes components. The emergence of shared standards and a set of best practices became imperative.

    This blog post will focus on the evolution of interfaces within the Kubernetes landscape, including networking, storage, service mesh and cluster provisioning. As well, an emphasis will be placed on why the interoperability of open-source tools is pivotal in the modern infrastructure.
