Google Cloud Kubernetes in 10 Minutes

  • In this hands-on post, we’ll learn continuously deliver a demo application to the Google Kubernetes Engine using Semaphore CI/CD.
  • By the end of this read, you’ll have a better understanding of how Kubernetes works, and, even better, a continuous delivery pipeline to play with.
  • To get a stable public IP address, Kubernetes provides a load balancing service that forwards incoming requests to the pods.
  • We tell Kubernetes that the service will serve the pods labeled as app: semaphore-demo-nodejs-k8s-server.
  • You’ll need to sign up few services: Google Cloud Platform will be our cloud provider; also GitHub for the application code and Semaphore for the CI/CD.
  • Example application and CI/CD pipeline showing how to run a Node.js project on Semaphore 2.0.
  • The build job copies some configuration files inside the Docker image and pushes it to the registry.
  • Now you know how to build a CI/CD pipeline for Google Cloud Kubernetes Engine.

Azure Arc is Microsoft's Latest Enterprise Multi-Cloud Play

  • That leaves clouds and vendors alike eyeing big enterprise players who will benefit from taking a cloud-native approach but who need to keep a large part of their infrastructure safely tucked away on premises.
  • Basically, Arc brings support for Azure Resource Manager, which ties together compute resources inside Azure, to resources running outside of Microsoft's cloud — whether the resource is running in an on-prem data center or on another cloud.
  • Once registered, external Kubernetes clusters — whether in an on-prem data center running Pivotal on vSphere or in another cloud using managed services such as Amazon's EKS or Google Kubernetes Engine — can be managed the same as if they were running natively using Azure's Kubernetes service, AKS.
  • Azure Arc can also run managed database services in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, with Azure SQL Database and PostgreSQL Hyperscale currently supported.

Google brings RCS support in its Android Messages app to the U.S.

  • Google today announced that it is now rolling out to all of its users in the U.S. support for Rich Communication Services messages (you can think of it as the next generation of SMS) in the Android Messages app, after already testing it with a small set of users in recent months.
  • For Google, this push for RCS is also a way for the company to more effectively compete with Apple’s iMessages (though it doesn’t feature end-to-end encryption) and because Google has mostly taken control of this rollout away from carriers, it gets to call the shots on when users get access to this, not the telcos.
  • Like other messaging services, RCS support in Messages will allow you to talk to your friends over Wi-Fi or mobile data and send photos and videos.
  • With Google taking control of the rollout, it’s also now responsible for keeping this network running, and there are some legitimate concerns about the company owning this over the carriers.

Amazon is offering 4 months of access to its music-streaming service for $1 as an early Black Friday deal — here's how to take advantage

  • Amazon is already offering deals, like four months of access to its premium streaming service Amazon Music Unlimited for just $1 (for new subscribers only).
  • Amazon Music Unlimited is basically the retailer's version of Spotify.

  • The $1 Amazon Music Unlimited access is only going on for a limited time, so new members should take advantage of the deal before the offer is over.
  • We highlight products and services you might find interesting.
  • We frequently receive products free of charge from manufacturers to test.
  • We operate independently from our advertising sales team.

We're Surrounded by Billions of Internet-Connected Devices. Can We Trust Them?

  • While the security firms serving large well-financed companies like those targeted in the Mirai attacks have come up with new ways to defend client servers against DDoS attacks, many manufacturers of IoT devices are doing little if anything to protect the rest of us from cyber mischief—not just zombie device conscription, but also spying, sabotage and exploits that security experts argue should raise profound privacy and safety concerns.
  • To secure an IoT device, they argue, manufacturers need to patch vulnerabilities in four different areas : direct access to the device itself, the mobile app used to run it, the way it communicates with its home network and, in many cases, the cloud-based server that manufacturers use to push out updates, collect user data, or provide new services.

Salesforce signs a big new deal with Microsoft's cloud to power one of its core products

  • This means that Salesforce now uses all three of the major cloud computing platforms to host some portion of its software.
  • As recently as 2018, Salesforce said that it "runs the vast majority of [its] public cloud workloads on AWS." Of note is that in 2016, Salesforce said that some pieces of Marketing Cloud were hosted on AWS.
  • Salesforce, however, said this partnership with Microsoft has no impact on its existing relationship with Amazon.
  • Regardless, the deal looks to be a big win for Microsoft, which is generally thought to come in second to AWS for cloud computing services.
  • The new integration between Salesforce's Sales Cloud and Service Cloud, and Microsoft Teams, will allow users to search, view, and share Salesforce records directly within Teams.
  • Slack, which is seen as a competitor to Microsoft Teams, recently announced an expanded partnership with Salesforce aimed at integrating the services in a similar way.

1Password was profitable and self-funded for 14 years. Now Accel just wrote its biggest check ever to invest $200 million in the startup.

  • That's how much venture capital firm Accel is investing in 1Password, a password management startup that has largely self-funded while remaining profitable for the last 14 years.
  • The difference with a bootstrapped startup like 1Password, according to Mathew, is that the founding team inherently knows how to stretch a dollar while growing at a reasonable pace.
  • Like Slack, another Accel portfolio company that recently went public via direct listing, Teare had stumbled into a lucrative market managing individual people's array of passwords for different services.
  • By 2015, the demand was so high and 1Password so popular that CEO Jeff Shiner prioritized launching a service specifically for businesses, similar to what Okta has done for single-sign on dashboards for large organizations.
  • That's the key to nabbing such a big check from one of the most notable investors in Silicon Valley, according to Shiner.
