Application Consistency in Kubernetes

June 15, 2021

Gone are the days that a backup of a virtual machine is enough for backing up an entire application. Applications, especially modern, cloud-native applications, span across virtual machines, containers and cloud services. Backing up any one of those individual components is not enough to capture the entire application’s state. Instead, we need to capture all […]

Architecting Applications for Kubernetes

March 1, 2021

Container-based applications are designed with different assumptions about the underlying infrastructure. In this post, we will dive into architecting applications for Kubernetes-environments. Portability Makes the Most of All Clouds The design approach for container-based applications is vastly different than architecting virtual-machine-based applications. In the latter, the goal is to prevent failure, not accommodate it. Container-based […]

How to Choose Between VMs, Containers, and Serverless

September 9, 2020

Why choose? Let’s start with the why. Why do we need to choose? Why does this choice even exist? As technologies evolve, they tend to commoditize at the bottom of a stack. For instance, physical services and hypervisors have predominantly commoditized, meaning they look alike, the technology is mature, and the pace of innovation slowed […]

Stateful vs. Stateless

June 24, 2020

In our previous blog post, we introduced containers, how they worked, and why so many applications are being moved to containers. And while we did gloss over the most fundamental difference between virtual machines and containers—state—we did not dive into all of its ramifications. Stateful vs. Stateless Containers are stateless, which means changes made to […]

Containers 101

June 10, 2020

We all know and love virtual machines (VMs). You probably remember seeing your first vMotion or high availability (HA) failover event of a VM. How fantastic was it to free the operating system (OS) and application from the underlying hardware, optimize resource usage, and provide HA to any and all applications? VMs have served us well for the better part of two decades and we thank companies like VMware and Microsoft […]
