This week we’re talking with Joel Speed, a cloud infrastructure engineer at Pusher who’s been helping build its internal Kubernetes platform. Joel wrote a contributed post for us this week about how to solve Kubernetes configuration woes with a custom controller, so we’ll talk to him first about that.
Later in the show, we talk with TNS managing editor Joab Jackson and TNS editor-in-chief Alex Williams about what we’re expecting from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America in Seattle next week. The New Stack have two pancake breakfasts and a full schedule of podcasts and livestreams, so visit our web site or follow us on Twitter @thenewstack next week for live updates from KubeCon.

IBM is building out its portfolio of cloud services in order to offer cloud native capabilities with higher degrees of security and isolation for the enterprise, combined with the user experience of public cloud such as self-service provisioning, pay-as-you-go pricing and elasticity. So this week on Context we talked with Jason McGee, an IBM Fellow, and VP and CTO of IBM Cloud Platform about IBM’s new enterprise cloud services which include the Cloud Foundry Enterprise Environment announced this week.

This week on The New Stack Context podcast, we spoke with Matthew Fornaciari, Gremlin chief technology officer and co-founder, about a new feature in the Gremlin's chaos engineering package that allows developers to apply resilience testing to serverless serving. Gremlin is on the forefront of chaos engineering, the practice of hobbling different components within an infrastructure to that that infrastructure's resilience against unplanned failure.
The feature comes from the company’s new Application-Level Fault Injection(ALFI) technology, which provides a way to do failure testing at the application level by inserting breakpoints into the developer’s code itself. The software works with all major serverless platforms, including AWS Lambda, Azure Functions, and Google Cloud Functions.
We also discuss Gremlin's first-ever ChaosConf, held last month in San Francisco, where practitioners discussed the latest ideas in chaos engineering, or, as Walmart Labs’ Vilas Veeraraghavan called it during his presentation, "resilience engineering."

This week on the TNS Context podcast, we talk with Alex Peay, SaltStack vice president of product, and Gary Richmond, a SaltStack product manager, about automated security compliance scanning and event-based orchestration. Also joining us today is TNS founder and editor-in-chief Alex Williams and TNS managing editor Joab Jackson.
Jackson was in Salt Lake City this month covering SaltConf, where Peay and Richmond spoke about event-driven automation and orchestration using SaltStack Enterprise. The company's configuration management and remote execution engine is a stepping stone for automated IT operations, offering a way to automate the checking and remediation of desired configurations. We discuss the promise of automated security remediation with Peay, and venture into event-driven orchestration with Richmond.

On this episode of The New Stack Context podcast, we’re recapping the Serverless Days event we attended in Portland last week and discussing the 2.0 release of the Linkerd service mesh project. Joining us today is TNS managing editor Joab Jackson, TNS founder and editor-in-chief Alex Williams.
Williams and I attended Serverless Days in Portland this week where The New Stack was a media sponsor, as well as co-hosted the after party with our sponsor Stackery. In this episode, we discuss what we learned about serverless trends from that event, including the latest definition of serverless, what serverless means for DevOps, monitoring and security.
Then later in the show, we discuss some of the top stories on the site this week, including Buoyant's release of Linkerd 2.0, the open source service mesh project from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation that was just completely rearchitected with a lighter, more nimble codebase.

Forbes just declared the incident response company PagerDuty to be “the new cloud unicorn” after the company announced an additional $90 million in funding. This new round gives PagerDuty a billion-dollar-plus valuation and puts it on par with other cloud tools like Slack and GitHub. So, we saw that this was creating quite a bit of energy at PagerDuty Summit in San Francisco this week.

This week, we have a wrap-up discussion with TNS contributor Scott M. Fulton about the VMWorld 2018, in which the giant of virtual machine software is taking bold steps into Kubernetes and containers, through a managed Kubernetes offering and also with its sister company's Pivotal PKS managed container service. The company is pitching its NSX virtual networking software as the basis of container operations in the cloud. But the package's automation capabilities leaves some network administrators wondering if they will have jobs in the years to come. "When infrastructure becomes truly programmable, who — or what — will be responsible for it? More to the point, will it be someone other than the people in charge of it now?" Fulton writes.

Hello, welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we review the week’s hottest news in cloud native technologies/at-scale application development and look ahead to topics we expect will gain more attention in coming weeks.
This week, we recorded the podcast live at the Sensu Summit, which took place live in Portland. Joining us this week are Google Developer Advocate Kelsey Hightower and Sensu CEO Caleb Hailey, to discuss the challenges of microservices monitoring. Many traditional monitoring tools, such as Nagios, or even Amazon Web Services' CloudWatch, fail to capture the full picture of what is going on within a system, the panel agreed.
