The Kubernetes community successfully wrapped up the KubeCon conference in Austin, Texas last week. Couldn’t make it to KubeCon? In this post, I have summarized the announcements and resources released during the conference.
Microsoft announced three open source projects around serverless containers and Kubernetes-native DevOps as a part of the continuous investment in the Kubernetes community - Open Service Broker for Azure, Kashti, and Virtual Kubelet.
Open Service Broker for Azure (OSBA) provides a simple way for developers to connect containers to different Azure services, such as Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Database for PostgreSQL. The built was based on the Open Service Broker API standard to expose backing services to applications running in the cloud.
OSBA enables deployment to any Open Service Broker API-compatible platform regardless of the environment it is running on. For more information, visit the Open Service Broker for Azure blog.
Kashti is an open source reporting dashboard and visualization tool for Brigade, a scripting framework. It makes it easier for developers to manage Brigade events and projects through a web browser. Kashti’s dashboard UI is built as a Kubernetes service and installed via Helm that makes Brigade DevOps workflows and events visible instantly. For more information, go to the Kashti blog.
The Virtual Kubelet is a Kubernetes connector featuring a pluggable architecture that supports a variety of runtimes, simplifying the building process. It is considered an extension of the experimental project released in July, the Azure Container Instances (ACI) Connector for Kubernetes. ACI is a serverless container runtime with per-second billing with no virtual machine management. Developers can now use Virtual Kubelet to target ACI or any other equivalent runtime.
