What we're about

There is a much larger opportunity to bring open infrastructure to new markets. From edge computing, to AI, to Container Security, to CI/CD, the work we do to ensure that the infrastructure our economy relies on is truly open has never been more vital.

DevOps and Open Infrastructure group mission is to make cloud native computing ubiquitous.

Cloud native technologies empower organizations to build and run scalable applications in modern, dynamic environments such as public, private, and hybrid clouds. Containers, service meshes, micro-services, immutable infrastructure, and declarative APIs exemplify this approach.

These techniques enable loosely coupled systems that are resilient, manageable, and observable. Combined with robust automation, they allow engineers to make high-impact changes frequently and predictably with minimal toil.

Why IT Convergence selected Oracle Linux for Hybrid Cloud Native environment?

Kubernetes dynamically orchestrates workloads to maintain the desired state of your application. Every time a workload is launched, it receives a new IP address and could be located on any worker node. This works well for scaling your application and maintaining uptime, however it breaks the current security model that was designed for static resources like VMs and bare metal servers. So why ITC selected Oracle Linux and Kata Containers for their hybrid cloud native environment. Kata container runs in a dedicated kernel, providing isolation of network, I/O and memory and can utilize hardware-enforced isolation with virtualization VT extensions. If Kata Container’s runtime is installed, kata-runtime, one can configure Docker to be aware of both container runtimes, giving users the choice of which to use on a per-container granularity. kata-runtime complements runC and enhances the solution provided by Docker. Kata-runtime is OCI (Open Container initiative) Agenda: 1. Kubernetes overview 2. What is Container? 3. What is Kata Container? 4. Use cases and examples of Kubernetes Cluster 5.
