With the introduction of Elastic Kubernetes service at re: Invent last year, AWS finally threw their hat in the ever booming space of managed Kubernetes services. In this blog post, we will learn the basic concepts of EKS, launch an EKS cluster and also deploy a multi-tier application on it.
Containerized applications are becoming more popular with each passing year. A reason for this rise in popularity could be the pivotal role that they play in Continuous Delivery by enabling fast and automated deployment of software services. Security still remains the major concern mainly because of the way container images are being used. This blog provides an answer to the below concerns:
- There are so many docker images readily available on dockerhub, but are you sure the one that you are using is not injecting any vulnerability into your environment?
- Do you know where your containers come from?
- Are your developers downloading container images and libraries from unknown and potentially harmful sources?
- Do the containers use third party library code that is obsolete or vulnerable?
Cloud-native is an approach to build & run applications that can leverage the advantages of the cloud computing model — On demand computing power & pay-as-you-go pricing model. These applications are built and deployed in a rapid cadence to the cloud platform and offer organizations greater agility, resilience, and portability across clouds.
This blog explains the importance, the benefits and how to go about building Cloud Native Applications.
