Six Takeaways from KubeCon 2020

Kubecon went virtual this year and let’s be honest, it wasn’t the same – on any level. It lacked the electricity, the enthusiasm and interaction that makes this a geek version of the holiday season. Still, the content was outstanding and continues to serve as the engine of this amazing event. Each Kubecon is a major milestone – an opportunity

Storage at the Edge

Edge computing is a hot topic and carries with it some confusion, particularly around storage. Handling data properly at the edge can ensure a scalable, cost-effective and secure infrastructure - but failing to set up the right architecture can lead to data loss, security vulnerabilities and sky-high costs related to the bandwidth needed to transfer data repeatedly to and from

High Performance Object Storage, Kubernetes + Why You Can't Containerize a Storage Appliance

High Performance Object Storage, Kubernetes + Why You Can't Containerize a Storage Appliance

There are two forces that are fundamentally remaking the technology landscape today. One is Kubernetes and the other is high performance Object Storage. They are powering (or are shaped by, depending on your perspective) modern, data-rich applications that include AI/ML and application logs. Either way, modern applications need Kubernetes and Object Storage and Kubernetes and Object Storage owe their

Kubernetes Storage Patterns

Kubernetes Storage Patterns

Kubernetes has fundamentally altered  the traditional application development and deployment patterns. Application development teams can now develop, test and deploy their apps in days, across different environments, all within their Kubernetes clusters. Previous generations of technology typically took weeks if not months. This acceleration is possible due to the abstraction that Kubernetes brings to the table, i.e. it deals

Most developers don’t love managing infrastructure — including storage infrastructure. One of the great things about Kubernetes is the ability to simplify infrastructure management so that developers can focus on creating applications and let Kubernetes handle orchestration. Kubernetes does not natively manage storage infrastructure — but using MinIO and Kubernetes together can help provide the storage that applications need with the
