Istio reaches 1.0 and AWS releases the AWS CDK.
A catch up of recent AWS releases: Lambda SQS event source, ALB redirects, Application Auto Scaling, and Fargate's release in Sydney.
Fargate bastions allow you to spin up a bastion host only when you need it and tear it down afterwards. All using AWS serverless technologies, which means that you don't pay anything for them unless you actively use it.
AKS is now generally available, ECS has daemon scheduling, and Docker for Desktop is going to have a way to build containers without writing Dockerfiles. In the serverless world AWS now has private endpoints for their API Gateway.
On May 23, the second iteration in Australia of the Container Camp conference started and this year Bulletproof was a sponsor. Conferences like this always give a good indication of where the market is, and especially to see where it’s going.
This year was my second visit to Container Camp, and it was once again a great experience. In addition Bulletproof, the company I work for, was a sponsor so I wrote up the key things we took away as a team.
Last week was Apple's WWDC, but Microsoft got most of the attention with their acquisition of GitHub while AWS released EKS.
Amazon released their graph database Neptune as well as a way to authenticate using ALBs while the CNCF decided to adopt Helm.
AWS CodeBuild supports Windows builds, Sumerian was released, and Atlassian gave us Escalator.
AWS introduced Aurora Backtrack and a new CLI for Serverless apps, while GitHub comes out with the Checks API.
With two major conferences in a single week, Microsoft's Build and Google IO, there were a lot of announcements.
Last week was Kubecon Europe, and that means a lot of announcements. Most of which I'll ignore in this note, but I'll mention the Operator Framework and gVisor. In addition, Stack Overflow released a Teams version and AWS CodeBuild supports local builds.
Another container focused note, with the general availability of Azure Container Instances, a new free security scanner by Aqua, and Netflix open sourcing Titus, their container management tool.
Earlier this April, the CI/CD service Wercker released their new Steps Store. As I long ago built a step for generating Hugo sites like my own, I decided to upgrade it and see what has changed.
Azure Sphere is announced for IoT security; Docker EE 2.0 is released; and there are a couple of interesting new tools for Kubernetes.
As I spent last week wholly immersed in AWS events, it's strange that this note doesn't concern that. Instead, it's all about standards with WebAuthn reaching a stage where implementations can start and Docker donating the Docker Registry API to the OCI as a standard.
