Word on the cloud: Kubernetes 1.26 and runwasi
Three quick things before I slow down for the holidays...
Kubernetes 1.26 was released last Friday. It's codenamed Electrifying, and. it's the 3rd and final release of 2022. Huge thanks to the release team for all their hard work.
I'm pleased with how the Container Runtime Interface (CRI) and Container Storage Interface (CSI) continue to mature. For example, CRI versions prior to
v1 have been removed, and the work continues to migrate storage drivers to CSI.
I also like that all container images and binary artifacts for this release are digitally signed (signing of release artifacts graduated to beta).
The big news in the Wasm space is runwasi being accepted as an official containerd shim!
This means the project moves to the official CNCF containerd GitHub repo and is a huge milestone for WebAssembly on Kubernetes. Docker Desktop and AKS Wasm Node Pools already use runwasi, and this is only the beginning.
DevOps at the end of 2022
This is a great little report on the current state of DevOps. If you're doing DevOps, or about to get started, it's definitely worth a read.
The report highlights gaps in expectations -vs- investment from exec teams. It also higlights some the mistakes we're making in our approaches to cost management. I agree with both.
As always, I'm available on most of the social platforms and always happy to engage - @nigelpoulton
Stay safe, and I'll ping you again in the new year.
