Here’s a quick look at using Envoy as a load balancer in Kubernetes. I saw this blog post about Curiefense , an open source Envoy extension to add WAF (web application firewall) functionality to Envoy. I really enjoy these AWS open source news and updates posts. Having recently needed to dig into Open Policy Agent (OPA) , I took renewed interest in this slightly older article by Chip Zoller that compares OPA/Gatekeeper with Kyverno.

Weekly Update 6-3-2019

Linux Academy

Configure auto-scaling with load balancers. Plus when it’s okay to lie to the compiler, what GitHub’s Sponsors program means for open source, and your feedback. Plus Wes and Ell are back from KubeCon in Barcelona and return with some great news for open source. Last week we talked about our brand new hands-on labs interface and new courses that we released.

Changing the calculus of containers in the cloud

All Things Distributed

You should be able to write your code and have it run, without having to worry about configuring complex management tools, open source or not. With Fargate, you don't need to stand up a control plane, choose the right instance type, or configure all the other components of your application stack like networking, scaling, service discovery, load balancing, security groups, permissions, or secrets management.

The Business Case Justification for PaaS

Perficient - Digital Transformation

Reduction of operating expense – a shift to open source, operational efficiencies, platform consolidation. Operational services – security, logging, dynamic routing, load balancing, etc. It is often desirable to change some application level components during brownfield application migration such as moving from commercial to open source software, which may require application changes.

The Internet of (Secure) Things – Embedding Security in the IoT

CTOvision

You can opt-in to smart metering so that a utility can load balance energy distribution. On the open source side, there is an effort to build common communication platforms and interfaces for the IoT called AllJoyn that simplifies device information and configuration, onboarding, notification, control, and audio streaming.

Eric Sloof mentions the NSX-T load balancing encyclopedia (found here ), which intends to be an authoritative resource to NSX-T load balancing configuration and management. Although Scott’s article focuses on the VMware-centric community, this is true (in my opinion) of many different communities, including various open source communities—and, to be frank, the physical communities in which we live and work.

AIOps and our Robot Kubernetes Kops

Linux Academy

High speed low latency networks now allow us to add these nodes anywhere in a cloud infrastructure and configure them under existing load balancers. These metrics makeup a great data source for further analytics. Most of them are proprietary and few open source solutions exist. While Machine Learning is just a subset of true Artificial Intelligence vendors of infrastructure automation have coined a new buzz acronym, AIOps.

Thinking Out Loud: Targeting the Real Problem

Scott Lowe

After all, if I can use a controller—there are numerous open source and proprietary controllers out there—to gain programmatic access to controlling individual flows within my data center, why do I need VLANs? The real problem is the configuration and management of network policy: stuff like QoS, VLANs, ACLs, NAT, VRFs, firewalls, load balancing, etc. Layer 3 Routing with Open vSwitch.

Continuing on that Envoy theme, you may find this article by Matt Klein—one of the primary authors of Envoy—helpful in understanding some of the concepts behind modern load balancing and proxying. Non-code contributions are, in my opinion, an important but oft-overlooked aspect of open source communities. Welcome to Technology Short Take #106! It’s been quite a while (over a month) since the last Tech Short Take, as this one kept getting pushed back.

Managing What Matters In the Cloud: The Apps » Data Center.

I found this series of posts to be helpful when I was working on configuring LACP with Open vSwitch (I hope to have a blog post on that up soon). In any case, this article by Frank Denneman on Storage DRS load balancing frequency might be useful to you. This is also why I’ve been spending time with Open vSwitch, which is a critical construct in Quantum.).

His earlier post on getting started with OpenFlow and Open vSwitch tutorial lab is also quite good. KVM is the set of kernel modules that leverage hardware virtualization functionality inside Intel and AMD CPUs, and it makes possible the virtualization of closed-source operating systems like Windows. I enjoyed this article by Josh Townsend on using SUSE Studio and HAProxy to create a (free) open source load balancing solution for VMware View.

It says the the JET (Juniper Extension Toolkit) uses “open application programming interfaces”, but fails to provide any specifics. Is this “open-washing”, or is there actually some meat to this? ACS offers multiple “endpoints,” each of which enables you to use a particular open source container/orchestration tool. William Lam breaks down the real value of load balancing your PSC in this in-depth article. Welcome to Technology Short Take #58.
