Can Kubernetes Keep a Secret? It all depends what tool you’re using

At Soluto, we have super-devs who have full ownership: from writing code to deploying it to monitoring.

Docker and Kubernetes in high security environments

This is brief summary of parts of my master’s thesis and the conclusions to draw from it. This medium-story focuses on containerized application isolation. The thesis also covers segmentation of cluster networks in Kubernetes which is not discussed in this story.You can read my full thesis here; it’s available through open access:Container Orchestration in Security […]

Reaching for the Stars with Ansible Operator

In this post I will show you how to use Roles published to Ansible Galaxy as an Operator to manage an application in Kubernetes. Reusing a Role in this way provides an example of how to create an Operator that simply installs an application with the flexibility to expand and customize the behavior organically as […]

This 3D Printing Technique Is 100 Times Faster Than Standard 3D Printers

A new3D-printing technique could render a three-dimensional object in minutes instead of hours—at up to 100 timescurrent speeds. The experimental approach uses a vat of resin and some clever tricks with UV and blue LED lights (no lasers needed) to accelerate the printing process. The techniquelooks almost like a time-reverse film loop of an object […]

Server Name Indication (SNI) Support Now in Ambassador

We’ve discussed many interesting use cases for SNI support within the edge proxy/gateway with both open source and commercially supported users of Ambassador. In a nutshell (and with thanks to Wikipedia), SNI is an extension to the TLS protocol which allows a client to indicate which hostname it is attempting to connect to at the […]
