While Kubernetes offers a self-healing deployment platform, there is a fair chance a developer will run into issues that require deeper analysis and debugging to identify configuration problems. In this article, we’ll explore various techniques, best practices, and efficient tools for component-level debugging of a Kubernetes cluster.

Kubernetes 1.22, the latest release of Kubernetes, comes with bug fixes, enhancements, and new features that make the platform more stable, scalable, and user-friendly. There are a total of 56 improvements with different maturity levels and a considerable number of API removals. In this article, I’ll focus on the security-related changes in Kubernetes as well as a few other significant changes in Kubernetes API and usability

Kubernetes clusters take time and manpower to set up. That might mean a few minutes in the cloud or hours in a self-hosted version of Kubernetes. Ultimately, your ability to handle mammoth open-source projects is the biggest factor to consider when choosing managed over on-premises Kubernetes. If you choose to go it alone, you’ll need experts on your team who can handle such a large undertaking. Separately managing etcd, upgrades, high availability, and reliability requires far more expertise than running a managed Kubernetes cluster. For your managed solutions, there are a number of options.

In Kubernetes, the task of scheduling pods to specific nodes in the cluster is handled by the kube-scheduler. The default behavior of this component is to filter nodes based on the resource requests and limits of each container in the created pod. Feasible nodes are then scored to find the best candidate for the pod placement.

Service mesh technology emerged with the popularization of microservice architectures. Because service mesh facilitates the separation of networking from the business logic, it enables you to focus on your application’s core competency.Microservice applications are distributed over multiple servers, data centers, or continents, making them highly network dependent. Service mesh manages network traffic between services by controlling traffic with routing rules and the dynamic direction of packages between services.

K8s has a built-in object (sort of) for managing network security (NetworkPolicy). While it allows the user to define the relationship between pods with ingress and egress policies, it’s still quite basic and requires very precise IP mapping - for a solution that’s constantly changing, so most users I’ve talked to are not using it. Users need a simplified solution that protects their K8s networks to the max - a solution that makes network security in K8s a do-able task with the highest security level possible: mutual TLS between microservices and real zero trust deployment. And no, this is not a sidecar solution….

Two vulnerabilities found in Microsoft’s Azure cloud services have been recently published by researchers. These vulnerabilities prove once again that un-trusted workloads can come from many places in the cloud environment, including the out-of-your-control cloud infrastructure. Zero-trust environments can be created as a generic solution for such potential attacks.

A few fundamental security problems exist in the traditional microservices identity authentication Methods. These problems result in identity establishment, which is not always trustworthy, and enables potential attackers to pose as legitimate workloads. Adoption of multi-factor authentication for microservices can solve many of these challenges.

While the move to microservices-based architecture is relatively new, it is already mainstream. A majority of companies are choosing it as their default architecture for new development,and you are not cool if you are not using microservices. With regards to migrating legacy apps and breaking them down to microservices, companies are showing more conservatism, and rightly so. The move creates a lot of value, mainly around new features, time to market, and scalability, but it also has its complexities and trade offs.

Migrating our data to the cloud has never been easier in terms of technology. So why are so many companies still concerned with moving their data to the cloud? The answer lies in the fact that technology is a small part of moving to the cloud. Data cloud migration requires architectural changes and in many times - a mindshift.
