Servers: Nginx, Container, and Kubernetes on AWS

  • Nginx Updates Web Server Application Platform
    Nginx Inc. held its annual customer conference on Oct. 9-10, announcing a series of updates to its namesake Application Platform. While Nginx was originally best known for the open source nginx web server, Nginx Inc. has expanded in recent years to enable a larger set of web application capabilities, with a series of different products. Nginx first announced its Application Platform in September 2017, which includes the Nginx Plus Application service combined with the Nginx Controller management and Nginx Unit application server.
  • Container-native, it’s now ‘a thing’
    San Francisco headquartered software analytics company New Relic has acquired Belgian container and microservices monitoring firm CoScale. Neither firm is essentially open source in its core approach, but the technologies being interplayed here essentially are. CoScale’s expertise is in monitoring container and microservices environments, with a special focus on Kubernetes — the open source container orchestration system for automating deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications originally designed by Google.
  • Open source tool simplifies Kubernetes on AWS
    AWS Service Operator relies on the Kubernetes controller pattern, which packages various basic tasks, integrates disparate components and keeps an application in a desired state. This information is stored on a single API server for the Kubernetes and AWS assets, with AWS services defined as custom resources, and a user can potentially deploy the entire lifecycle process through a single YAML manifest. [...] Etc.io, a Dallas-based consulting firm, doesn't use any AWS container services at scale, and relies primarily on Google Container Engine. AWS Service Operator could make it more convenient to use Kubernetes on AWS, but it doesn't help organizations that want to move to a microservices architecture that doesn't rely on a single vendor, said E.T. Cook, managing partner at Etc.io.

  • [Old] Ethical [crackers] show that Windows 10 isn’t immune to WannaCry

    And secondly, the exploit they crafted only works against older versions of Windows 10 (pre-Anniversary Update), but that isn’t really the point. It’s about showing the lines along which these sort of exploits can evolve, and reminding folks not to sit back smugly even when the OS they’re running appears to be bulletproof to a new threat.
