We still might think what is better in the cloud AWS or GCP… But after much community demand, AWS Lambda serverless platform now supports Ruby as a first-class language, opening up an interesting new way to deploy Ruby code. Can you hear this awesome news? AWS Lambda now supports Ruby!
Today we’d like to tell you about Corral! This is a serverless MapReduce framework. In a nutshell, Corral is a framework for writing arbitrary MapReduce applications that can be executed in AWS Lambda. It was the result of using Lambda as an execution environment (like Hadoop MapReduce uses YARN).
Recently we made a post with Google Cloud and AWS comparison. But we promised to include there Microsoft Azure. While we’re still working on that you might enjoy the example of creating a serverless API using Microsoft Azure. What if you want or need to make your own API? Serverless can help create a nice one for data you’d like to expose for use. Here we’ll be able to create an API in a few button clicks, with minor modifications.
How do you know if your pods are getting any traffic? Oh, yes, a pod is the basic building block of Kubernetes, it is the smallest and simplest unit in the Kubernetes object model that you create or deploy. Today we’ll introduce you ‘Kubespy’. Kubespy is a tool to observe how Kubernetes resources change in real time, derived from the work of making Kubernetes deployments predictable in Pulumi’s CLI.
All the week long we couldn’t wait for this chance to share with you all those interesting and important news we’re sharing today! Of course, we could write about each of them separately. But you must agree, that if a piece of news is included in the digest it has more value for the reader. That means it was selected and kept for the special moment. The same thing is happening with good developers – they don’t need instantly share all their knowledge, but to keep, accumulate and just use where it is most appropriate. Read our new Syndicode Digest #69 – Razorblade strokes. And listen too! If you understand what is hidden in the digest’s name…
Continuing the topic of orchestrating your containers and cloud development, Kubernetes and companies who use it, we’d like you to meet Knative. This is a Kubernetes-based platform that provides a set of middleware components essential for building modern, source-centric, and container-based applications that can run anywhere: on premises, in the cloud, or even in a third-party data center. So, in a nutshell, you can use Knative to manage modern serverless workloads.
Two weeks ago we made our previous digest about the most important news in the software development world. It seems that so much had happened since that time! But we’re here, we came back to make your Friday evening full of meaningful information and important updates! Take a seat and get ready for our new Syndicode Digest #66 – Overwhelming dimensions…
