Episode 144: Lightbend’s Cloudstate Builds on Akka to Offer Stateful Serverless

10/2/2020
Serverless computing is getting a hand from an unlikely source: The Java community. Or more specifically, from the Akka distributed messaging toolkit. In many ways, serverless has grown beyond its initial use case of running small batch jobs. The industry has found that in many workloads, such as Web sessions, some sort of state must be maintained, even if only temporarily. To this end, reactive microservices framework provider Lightbend has devised an architecture, called Cloudstate to...

Episode 143: WebAssembly Could Be the Key for Cloud Native Extensibility

9/25/2020
Although WebAssembly was created for bringing advanced programming to the browser, Solo.io’s founder/CEO Idit Levine has been a vocal proponent of using the portable’s fast open source runtime to extend service meshes — citing Solo.io’s own work in offering tools and services to support commercial service mesh operations. In fact, WASM, as its also known, could be used to bring extensibility across a wide variety of cloud native projects, she argues. For this week’s episode of The New Stack...

Episode 141: Crossplane: A Kubernetes Control Plane to Roll Your Own PaaS

9/11/2020
The ideal state of a cloud native shop is to run a development and deployment pipeline that can seamlessly move applications from the developer’s laptop to the data center (or the edge) without any manual intervention. And while there are many tools available to facilitate such automation — Helm, Operators, CI/CD toolchains, GitOps architectures, Infrastructure-as-Code tools such as Terraform — all too often edge cases and exceptions still require personal attention, bringing DevOps...
