"We should formally discuss whether or not it's a good idea to modify the Kubernetes/Kubernetes release cadence."
- Introducing HA MicroK8s, the ultra-reliable, minimal Kubernetes | Ubuntu
"The autonomous HA MicroK8s delivers a zero-ops experience that is perfect for distributed micro clouds and busy administrators" - "The datastore which makes this possible is Dqlite, Canonical's raft-enhanced Sqlite, embedded inside Kubernetes. Dqlite reduces the cluster memory footprint and automates datastore maintenance. MicroK8s can also be configured to use etcd, but Dqlite provides automatic, autonomous high availability."
- Autoscaling Patterns in Serverless Computing You Should Know About
"In this post, I will introduce three different autoscaling patterns used in different serverless computing services which might help you decide which one works best for the project you are planning to start."
- Tap into Kubernetes logs with the Logging Operator
The article shows how to peeking into messages transported by fluentd using Logging Operators flexibility.
