What is a Service Mesh?

In order to understand how, or why, a tool or technology has come into existence, you can start by taking a look at the origins of the problem it tries to solve, and what the world would potentially look like without this new technology. Microservices have been around for some time -- it’s an architecture that aims at breaking large monolithic applications into small units that communicate with each other through HTTP protocol.

Kubernetes Service Catalog 101

As a Kubernetes user/operator, you’ve dealt with a lot of resources to provision different components of your infrastructure. You’ve used resources like Services, configMaps, Secrets. But sometimes you may need to use an external service like the ones typically offered by the cloud provider. Take AWS for example; they provide the RDS service, which is an abstraction layer that lets you gain access to a relational database (MySQL, Postgres,etc.) as a service.

A step-by-step tutorial for Kubernetes implementation

Kubernetes enables developers and system administrators to quickly deploy applications and scale them to their requirements, without downtime. A Kubernetes system is highly configurable, and almost everything revolves around four important concepts: nodes, pods, deployments and services.

Ready to dive into a Kubernetes implementation? Here are the key steps and Kubernetes commands to get started.

 Securing Kubernetes and the Container Landscape

Historically, the leading way to isolate and organize applications and their dependencies has been to place each application in its own virtual machine (VM). VMs make it possible to run multiple applications on the same physical hardware while keeping conflicts among software components and competition for hardware resources to a minimum. But virtual machines are bulky—typically gigabytes in size. They don’t really solve the problems of portability, software updates or continuous integration and continuous delivery. To resolve these issues, organizations have adopted Docker containers.


Tinder’s move to Kubernetes

Almost two years ago, Tinder decided to move its platform to Kubernetes. Kubernetes afforded us an opportunity to drive Tinder Engineering toward containerization and low-touch operation through immutable deployment. 

We were also looking to address challenges of scale and stability. When scaling became critical, we often suffered through several minutes of waiting for new EC2 instances to come online. The idea of containers scheduling and serving traffic within seconds as opposed to minutes was appealing to us.

How Kubernetes Can Make Your High Load Project Viable in 2020

Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration system that is designed to help you build a scalable infrastructure using high load approaches on a weak server. In this article, we’ll show you why Kubernetes is worth using in 2020.
Let's suppose you have a small development team working on a project that is not yet large-scale. It does not require multiple, powerful servers, and the updates are rolled out manually.
