Serverless and containers: Two great technologies that work better together

Source: Serverless and containers: Two great technologies that work better together Cloud native models using containerized software in a continuous delivery approach could benefit from serverless computing where the cloud vendor generates the exact amount of resources required to run a workload on the fly. While the major cloud vendors have recognized this and are already creating products to abstract away the infrastructure, it may not work for every situation in spite of the benefits. Cloud native put simply involves using containerized applications and Kubernetes to deliver software in small packages called microservices. This enables developers to build and deliver ...

Microsoft makes a push for service mesh interoperability

Source: Microsoft makes a push for service mesh interoperability Services meshes. They are the hot new thing in the cloud native computing world. At Kubecon, the bi-annual festival of all things cloud native, Microsoft today announced that it is teaming up with a number of companies in this space to create a generic service mesh interface. This will make it easier for developers to adopt the concept without locking them into a specific technology. In a world where the number of network endpoints continues to increase as developers launch new micro-services, containers and other systems at a rapid clip, they ...

The Disruptive Playbook for Bootcamps to Upend Higher Education – by Michael B. Horn

Source: The Disruptive Playbook for Bootcamps to Upend Higher Education – by Michael B. Horn Will bootcamps and other last-mile providers disrupt higher education? Ryan Craig, an investor and writer thinks so. His most recent book, A New U: Faster + Cheaper Alternatives to College, makes a compelling case that the disruption is already underway. As the person who likes to be ahead of the curve on forecasting disruptive innovations in education, reading the book caused me to write that “A New U is the book I wish I had written.” But disrupting traditional colleges and universities is a tall ...

Two years after WannaCry, a million computers remain at risk

Source: Two years after WannaCry, a million computers remain at risk Two years ago today, a powerful ransomware began spreading across the world. WannaCry spread like wildfire, encrypting hundreds of thousands of computers in over 150 countries in a matter of hours. It was the first time that ransomware, a malware that encrypts a user’s files and demands cryptocurrency in ransom to unlock them, had spread across the world in what looked like a coordinated cyberattack. Hospitals across the U.K. declared a “major incident” after they were knocked offline by the malware. Government systems, railway networks and private companies were ...

New secret-spilling flaw affects almost every Intel chip since 2011

Source: New secret-spilling flaw affects almost every Intel chip since 2011 Security researchers have found a new class of vulnerabilities in Intel chips which, if exploited, can be used to steal sensitive information directly from the processor., The bugs are reminiscent of Meltdown and Spectre, which exploited a weakness in speculative execution, an important part of how modern processors work. Speculative execution helps processors predict to a certain degree what an application or operating system might need next and in the near-future, making the app run faster and more efficient. The processor will execute its predictions if they’re needed, or ...
