How a Service Mesh Amplifies Business Value

Aspen Mesh sponsored this podcast. A key function of what service meshes should increasingly offer is to help DevOps teams have better observability into what events are causing application deployment and management problems. They should also help to determine which team can take appropriate action. In this final episode of The New Stack Makers three-part podcast series featuring Aspen Mesh, Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, and correspondent B. Cameron Gain, discuss with invitees how service meshes help DevOps stave off the pain of managing complex cloud native as well as legacy environments and how they can be translated into cost savings. With featured guests Shawn Wormke, vice president and general manager, Aspen Mesh and Tracy Miranda, director of open source community, CloudBees, they also cover what service meshes can — and cannot — do to help meet business goals and what to expect in the future.

The Developer’s Struggle for Control

GitLab sponsored this podcast. The developer experience today certainly offers software engineers the freedom to create applications at scale across often highly distributed microservices environments. But with this degree of freedom to create and update deployments at scale, developers are under pressure to deliver faster cadences. They also face security concerns as well as unknowns about the frontend user experience, even once the security and QA teams have properly vetted the code. In this The New Stack Makers podcast, correspondent B. Cameron Gain, speaks with Christopher Lefelhocz, vice president of development at GitLab and Ben Sigelman, CEO and co-founder of Lightstep, about how developers can leverage elasticity and other processes and tools to ensure software remains resilient and secure from the time the code is uploaded to GitLab’s repository and throughout the entire deployment and usage cycle.

Sebastien Goasguen, TriggerMesh: Event-Driven Architectures and Kubernetes

TriggerMesh sponsored this podcast. Cloud native environments and the breadth of tools and platforms developers have at their disposal has made the developers’ experience, and especially, the scale and breadth of applications organizations can deploy today, that much richer. However, today’s cloud native and highly distributed environments typically involve much complexity, while the developer’s role increasingly involves managing applications deployments and integrating the applications they create. A number of tools and processes have emerged to help improve the developer experience, such as serverless environments that help developers concentrate more on their task of creating applications. In this The New Stack Makers podcast, Alex Williams, TNS founder and publisher, speaks with Sebastien Goasguen, co-founder, TriggerMesh, about developers’ challenges and the tools and processes of event-driven architectures, including TriggerMesh for AWS EventBridge. Many developers rely o...

OpenJS Keynote: JavaScript, the First 20 Years of the Web Stack

The first 20 years of JavaScript marked the dawn of the Web stack and a new generation of Web developers who had to deal with a community of traditional technologists. They also faced the continuous looming threat of Microsoft explained Allen Wirfs-Brockin a recorded keynote from OpenJS Foundation's virtual conference in June. Wirfs-Brock was also project editor of the ECMAScript specification from 2008-2015 and wrote the book-sized journal article for the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) entitled “JavaScript: The First 20 Years” for the History of Programming Language conference (HOPL), with co-author Brendan Eich, JavaScript’s creator. In this The New Stack Makers podcast, hosted by Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief of The New Stack, Wirfs-Brock of Wirfs-Brock Associates offers his historical perspective, including JavaScript’s changes during the 25 years after Eich created the language. “What really happened is what people thought was going to be a minor pi...

Bots, Emojis and Open Source Maintainers Oh My!

Open source maintainers have a different set of challenges today. To name just a few, bots help manage overload and emojis are as predominant in open source groups as they are in twenty somethings’ social circles. Meanwhile, maintainers are deeply involved in governance issues like never before. In this The New Stack Makers podcast, Alex Williams, TNS founder and publisher, and VMware guests Dawn Foster, director of open source community strategy, Nikhita Raghunath, senior member of technical staff, and Michael Klishin, senior principal software engineer discuss what it is like to be an open source maintainer, to build a community and to be a leader.

When You Need (Or Don’t Need) Service Mesh w/ B. Cameron Gain

Aspen Mesh sponsored this post. The adoption of a service mesh is increasingly seen as an essential building block for any organization that has opted to make the shift to a Kubernetes platform. As a service mesh offers observability, connectivity and security checks for microservices management, the underlying capabilities — and development — of Istio is a critical component in its operation, and eventually, standardization. In the second of The New Stack Makers three-part podcast series featuring Aspen Mesh, correspondent B. Cameron Gain opens the discussion about what service mesh really does and how it is a technology pattern for use with Kubernetes. Joining in the conversation were Zack Butcher, founding engineer, Tetrate and Andrew Jenkins, co-founder and CTO, Aspen Mesh, who also covered how service mesh, and especially Istio, help teams get more out of containers and Kubernetes across the whole application life cycle. Service mesh helps organizations migrate to cloud nativ...

Dynatrace: Andi Grabner -How AI Observability Cuts Down K8s Complexity

Dynatrace sponsored this post. The Kubernetes era has made scaled-out applications on multiple cloud environments a reality. But it has also introduced a tremendous amount of complexity into IT departments. My guest on this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast is Andreas Grabner from software intelligence platform Dynatrace, who recently noted that “in the enterprise Kubernetes environments I’ve seen, there are billions of interdependencies to account for.” Yes, billions. Grabner, who describes himself as a “DevOps Activist,” argues that AI technology can tame this otherwise overwhelming Kubernetes complexity. As he put it in a contributed post, “AI-powered observability provides enterprises with a host of new capabilities to better deploy and manage their Kubernetes environments.” During the podcast, we dig into how AI – and automation in general – is impacting observability in Kubernetes environments. To kick the show off, I asked Grabner to clarify what he means by “...

Self-Serve Architectures, The K8S Operator for Cassandra on DataStax

About 10 years ago the tech industry rejected the single relational database, and demanded a way to scale — at scale — with distributed systems. This movement saw the birth of React, Cassandra, MongoDB, and Tokyo Cabinet, all to better manage distributed databases. “All those databases that grew from: ‘Hey, we have a scaled data problem and this single relational database is not solving it.’ And I think that was the first time we really had to solve scale problems and use distributed technology to make it work,” said Patrick McFadin, chief evangelist for Apache Cassandra and vice president of developer relations at DataStax. McFadin joined colleague Kathryn Erickson, head of strategy and product at DataStax, for this episode of The New Stack Makers. They sat down with Founder and Publisher of The New Stack, Alex Williams, to reflect on how the industry has seen a sudden explosion of scale and how that’s now guiding the next steps toward fully self-service architecture.

Kelsey Hightower on His Very Personal Kubernetes Journey

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon sponsored this podcast. The New Stack will shortly launch its latest edition of “The State of the Kubernetes Ecosystem” after the first edition of the ebook was published in 2017. Ahead of its publication, The New Stack was able to speak with Kelsey Hightower, Principal Developer Advocate at Google Cloud, who is likely one of the most recognized voices in the Kubernetes space. In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, Hightower spoke about his role in Kubernetes since the beginning, his thoughts on the project’s leadership today and the challenges that lay ahead. During the early days of Kubernetes, there “were no ebooks available” on the subject, Hightower said. The main goal was to help “raise the profile of the people with the job of trying to manage applications." “I think the whole point was when I was showing Kubernetes off [as] a contributor [and] building things around the ...

Why a Financial Data Firm Bet Security on Palo Alto Networks

Prisma Cloud from Palo Alto Networks sponsored this podcast. Both data and governed access to it play an integral part in our lives. With the freedom to access vast amounts of pervasive data comes the responsibility of ensuring protection is in place. For an organization, data protection is required for a range of access points, including apps, the hosts, the containers and serverless architectures. In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast hosted by Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, speaks with Darian Jenik, risk product security lead architect for public cloud migration at Refinitiv. Refinitiv offers financial-related information, data and analysis to 40,000 institutions worldwide. Jenik discusses how Refinitiv uses Prisma Cloud as a foundation for its custom cloud security reporting app. Among the themes covered, he shares his initial security challenges that drove Refinitiv to consider a third-party solution like Prisma Cloud, as well as what drove the...
