  • Which Managed Kubernetes Is Right for Me?
    "This blog will compare on-premises, or self-hosted,Kubernetes clusters to managed ones, as well as outline your options for Kubernetes in the cloud. To do this, we’ll look at ease of use and set-up,custom node support, cost, release cycles, version support, and more." - also related: this updated cloud pricing comparison on managed Kubernetes services.
  • OpenTelemetry becomes a CNCF incubating project
    "The CNCF Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) has voted to accept OpenTelemetry as a CNCF incubating project. OpenTelemetry is an observability framework for cloud native software. It is a collection of tools, APIs, and SDKs that can be used to instrument, generate, collect, and export telemetry data – which includes metrics, logs, and traces – for analysis to better understand software performance and behavior." - if you are interested and looking for a starting point make sure also to check out the "Understand OpenTelemetry series" by NewRelic!

  • Why and How of Kubernetes Ingress (and Networking)
    Kubernetes Networking is complicated enough that we find explanations, tutorials, and how-tos every week. Every once in a while, some articles are good enough to be listed here. What we especially like about this one: really nice graphics!
  • A Kubernetes engineer's guide to mTLS
    "mTLS is a hot topic in the Kubernetes world, especially for anyone tasked with getting "encryption in transit" for their applications. But what is mTLS, what kind of security does it provide, and why would you want it? In this guide, I'll walk you through exactly what mTLS is, how it relates to ordinary TLS, and why it's relevant to Kubernetes."
