VSHN.timer #192: Noteworthy New Products

24. Jul 2023

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about new products that have recently made a splash in the DevOps and Cloud Native market.

1. Exoscale has recently added two new products to their Marketplace: Gitea & GitLab, provided and managed by Glasskube. Both services take advantage of 100% GDPR-compliant data storage on the fantastic Exoscale infrastructure. Check them out! (oh, and by the way, did you know that Gitea 1.20 has been released last week?)


2. The KubeVirt community has just released KubeVirt 1.0! Red Hat started this project with a question: can virtual machines run in containers and be deployed on Kubernetes? It proved to be not only possible, but also to be the future of VMs in the container age.


3. Red Hat is celebrating the graduation of Istio at the CNCF! Istio is at the core of Red Hat OpenShift Service Mesh, an open source, fully supported, enterprise grade mesh solution that includes the Kiali console.


4. Speaking about graduations, the CNCF announced last week the graduation of the CRI-O project, a secure, performant, and stable Container Runtime Interface implementation to orchestrate containers in Kubernetes clusters.


5. Slackware Linux is 30 years old! The oldest Linux distribution still in maintenance has announced a historic milestone, and here’s the original announcement from July 1993 by Patrick Volkerding.


Are you using KubeVirt? Are you more a Gitea or a GitLab kind of person? Would you like to announce a new product release? Get in touch with us, and see you next week for another edition of VSHN.timer.
