KISS, DRY ‘n SOLID — Yet another Kubernetes System built with Ansible and observed with Metrics Server on arm64
This blog post shows how a plain Kubernetes cluster is automatically created and configured on three arm64 devices using an orchestration tool called Ansible. The main focus relies on Ansible; other components that set up and configure the cluster are Docker, Kubernetes, Helm, NGINX, Metrics Server and Kubernetes Dashboard. Individual steps are covered more or […]

Beyond that, a short overview of the most important sources for container threats will be provided. I’m pretty sure you’re not counting on most of them. Want to know more?
When it comes to Docker, most of us immediately start thinking of current trends like Microservices, DevOps, fast deployment, or scalability. Without a doubt, Docker seems to hit the road towards establishing itself as the de-facto standard for lightweight application containers, shipping not only with lots of features and tools, but also great usability. However, another important topic is neglected very […]
In this post, we want to take a look on the concept of defense in depth. Therefore we are going to examine Chrome OS, the niche operation system for web users.
