Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service Adds IPv6 Networking

Starting today, you can deploy applications that use IPv6 address space on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS). Many of our customers are standardizing Kubernetes as their compute infrastructure platform for cloud and on-premises applications. Amazon EKS makes it easy to deploy containerized workloads. It provides highly available clusters and automates tasks such as patching, node Read more about Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service Adds IPv6 Networking[…]

Blog: Kubernetes-in-Kubernetes and the WEDOS PXE bootable server farm

Author: Andrei Kvapil (WEDOS) When you own two data centers, thousands of physical servers, virtual machines and hosting for hundreds of thousands sites, Kubernetes can actually simplify the management of all these things. As practice has shown, by using Kubernetes, you can declaratively describe and manage not only applications, but also the infrastructure itself. I Read more about Blog: Kubernetes-in-Kubernetes and the WEDOS PXE bootable server farm[…]

Blog: Kubernetes 1.23: StatefulSet PVC Auto-Deletion (alpha)

Author: Matthew Cary (Google) Kubernetes v1.23 introduced a new, alpha-level policy for StatefulSets that controls the lifetime of PersistentVolumeClaims (PVCs) generated from the StatefulSet spec template for cases when they should be deleted automatically when the StatefulSet is deleted or pods in the StatefulSet are scaled down. What problem does this solve? A StatefulSet spec Read more about Blog: Kubernetes 1.23: StatefulSet PVC Auto-Deletion (alpha)[…]

Blog: Kubernetes 1.23 Prevent PersistentVolume leaks when deleting out of order

Author: Deepak Kinni (VMware) PersistentVolume (or PVs for short) are associated with Reclaim Policy. The Reclaim Policy is used to determine the actions that need to be taken by the storage backend on deletion of the PV. Where the reclaim policy is Delete, the expectation is that the storage backend releases the storage resource that Read more about Blog: Kubernetes 1.23 Prevent PersistentVolume leaks when deleting out of order[…]

Blog: Kubernetes 1.23: Dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 Networking Reaches GA

Author: Bridget Kromhout (Microsoft) “When will Kubernetes have IPv6?” This question has been asked with increasing frequency ever since alpha support for IPv6 was first added in k8s v1.9. While Kubernetes has supported IPv6-only clusters since v1.18, migration from IPv4 to IPv6 was not yet possible at that point. At long last, dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 networking Read more about Blog: Kubernetes 1.23: Dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 Networking Reaches GA[…]
