What is Google up to with Anthos? More toys dropped for Kubernetes-style hybrid cloud
The answer is that Anthos is not really a technology, but more of a brand, a wrapper around Google's cloud crown jewels, Kubernetes (K8s).

Kubernetes’ next step could be to try orchestrating everything else
Could every element of an enterprise data center's infrastructure -- not just those newfangled containers, but virtual machines, "big data" platforms, and machine learning frameworks -- all eventually become orchestrated by Kubernetes, a product originally born out of Google's need to make order out of chaos?

Top Quotes from Cloud Foundry Summit Europe 2019
“We need to think about three things with Pivotal now that it is part of VMware: a common substrate (Kubernetes), the ability to manage it, and a build overlay. The cf push experience is important, making the experience better for developers.” —Craig McLuckie, VMware

VMware CEO: IBM Paid Too Much for Red Hat
“We’re going to own the Kubernetes stack,” Gelsinger said at the Deutsche Bank Conference. “We’re not going to be relying on third-party code. It’s all going to be an integrated solution stack to execute on that Kubernetes.”


“Do we assess the competitive environment? Well, of course, we do,” Gelsinger said. “So, IBM spent $34 billion doing this. I spent $2.8 billion [on Pivotal], plus add Heptio. So, I spent less than $3 billion and I think I have better assets.”

The superpower to change one thing about Kubernetes
“It’s optimized for cloud native applications – those that follow the patterns that are in my book for example. That represents only a subset of the applications that our enterprise customers need to address. Our 2020 strategy is to broaden the definition of our platform. To be more than just Cloud Foundry, but to broaden it to a larger range of use cases. To broaden it to a larger market.”

Waity K8-y no more Pivotal: We'll unhook Application Service from VMware
"The urgency was more around understanding the long term vision than an immediate need," said Andrews. "We're still very early. Everybody is talking about K8s all the time, but if you look at who is actually using it in production, the list is much shorter. Our technology stack works incredibly well, we have customers with over 100,000 containers working on the current platform. If we forecast out 3 to 5 years in the future though, it seems clear that K8s is going to be a de facto component in the architecture.”

Welcoming Pivotal to VMware to Transform How the World Builds Software on Kubernetes
Some Pivotal momentum and footprint:

1. Pivotal made Netflix-style microservices the de-facto software architecture pattern in the enterprise. Spring Boot is now downloaded over 75 million times per month and is the most popular Java developer framework today
2. Pivotal’s Platform has enabled developers to quickly and securely get code from development to production. Today over 750,000 application instances run on this platform

AIs are containers/processes.

VMware Adds Containers to Its Cloud Provider Platform
The platform also added an integration with VMware’s container orchestrator, Enterprise PKS, which means cloud providers can offer containers-as-a-service. And at VMworld the vendor will showcase a technology preview of vCloud Director integration with Bitnami Community.

VMware bought Bitnami in May. It provides application packaging targeted at container and Kubernetes environments. The Bitnami Community houses one of the largest catalogs of click-to-deploy applications and development stacks. Combining this with and Enterprise PKS will allow VMware Cloud Providers to “provide a cloud that’s developer ready, and offer both VM-based workloads and container-based workloads from the same platform,” Bhardwaj said

Google debuts migration tool for its Anthos hybrid cloud platform
Anthos applications are deployed in software containers, which are used to host the individual components of each app and make them easier to work with. The main benefit is that developers get to use a single set of tools to build and deploy their apps, and push through updates as necessary, no matter what infrastructure those apps are hosted on. Kubernetes makes it easier to manage large clusters of containerized apps.

Ignore the hysteria, Cloud Foundry is just fine
Sure you can do a lot of things with Kubernetes. It’s great, but Cloud Foundry is designed to make “Happy developers,” as Comcast open-source senior director Nithya Ruff put it at the Cloud Foundry Summit.

Cloud Foundry’s audience, as Karl Isenberg, one of its developers, explained on StackOverflow, is “enterprise application devs who want to deploy 12-factor stateless apps using Heroku-style buildpacks.”

Cloud Foundry Project Eirini Inches the Group Closer to Kubernetes
“A lot of work needs to be done for that but it’s evolving quickly,” Childers said of interoperability tests using Eirini as a bridge between Diego and Kubernetes. He did add that the evolution from Diego to Eirini, if it does occur, will be similar to how Cloud Foundry moved from its DEA architecture system to its Diego architecture system. That involved Diego having to show functional parity to DEA and the necessary production readiness for vendors and organizations to feel comfortable using Diego in place of DEA.

> When you’re looking at other cloud products, think about similar conflicts of interest that might be affecting your favorite spokespersons today… (I’m looking at you, kubernetes)

Spelled out:

> Even then, if you’re using Kubernetes, you probably won’t succeed, because it isn’t in Google’s best interest to let anyone else actually compete with GKE.

> And that’s probably OK. In fact, OpenStack + Kubernetes is probably just fine for what ever you’re building, and neither project is going anywhere any time soon.

A Pivotal Director, RedMonk Analyst Discuss the State of Open Source in 2018 by The New Stack Analysts
I was on a end-of-year podcast on open source, kubernetes, and vendor sports:

> It would have been difficult to predict the magnitude of open source’s role in today’s platforms and the explosion of choice on offer in today’s computing world thanks to its massive adoption.  On the industry side, IBM’s purchase of Linux giant Red Hat this year for an astounding $34 billion has come as an even bigger surprise.

> The state of open source in 2018, and especially, the IBM's Red Hat purchase, were discussed during a podcast with Rachel Stephens, an analyst with of RedMonk, and Michael Coté, director, marketing, at Pivotal Software, hosted by Libby Clark, editorial director, and Alex Williams, founder and editor-in-chief, of The New Stack.

> Indeed, 2018 is even being touted at the “year of open source” in many circles, Stephens said. “The mega acquisitions and just tends to really validate open-source as the method of building in the future and as a viable approach for building your stack. And I think, at the same time, we contrast that with some kind of clouds on the horizon in terms of the growing tension between an ability to run an open source business in the face of cloud providers.”

The future of Kubernetes is Virtual Machines
Multi-tenancy ain’t easy:

> The Kubernetes cluster itself becomes the line of “Hard Tenanacy”. This leads to the emerging pattern of “many clusters” rather than “one big shared” cluster. Its not uncommon to see customers of Google’s GKE Service have dozens of Kubernetes clusters deployed for multiple teams. Often each developer gets their own cluster. This kind of behavior leads to a shocking amount of Kubesprawl.

Kubernetes, what it’s for
> The reason that Kubernetes is successful is because people look at it and they don’t understand why they need it until they see it do stuff. Then they say “Oh my God, I need that!”I can’t say how many talks and presentations I’ve done in front of skeptical audiences where they don’t understand what it’s for. Just by showing short and simple features like “let’s do a rolling update” I watch what happens. I stop it halfway through and then roll it back and they’re like ”that’s what I do by hand. It takes me a ton more energy than what you just did.” So I think it captures things that people really wanted.

On DevOps-oriented app teams vs. SREs:

> I’m a little bit sad how complex Kubernetes is right now. In some sense Kubernetes is not for end users, it’s for people who set up clusters and clusters are for end users. At Google, we’ve always separated the roles that were involved in cluster management into two very specific ones: the cluster operators and the application operators.
> The cluster operators know everything about Borg and they know a little bit about each application that runs on Borg in a profile they understand, but not the details. They’re able to keep the Borg clusters up and running and they have SLAs around that and so forth. The application teams (like Google search or Gmail) come in and they say “I know how to use Borg but I don’t know how Borg runs and I don’t need to.” They come in and they run their applications on top of Borg and that split gives people a really nice ability to focus. Kubernetes is really aimed at those cluster operators.

It is certainly not surprising that companies are acquiring teams with strong container knowledge.”

Big Blue Puts on a Red Hat: IBM Acquires Red Hat
> While many organizations have extensive on and off premise infrastructure investments, comparatively few of them are sophisticated in the way that those environments are tied to each other. If expectations are scaled back to the more realistic “multi-cloud” – the idea that an organization may have investments in more than one environment – the relevance and importance of OpenShift becomes more clear.

This is clever to point out that enterprises have enough trouble integrating their existing, on-premise stuff, let along the complexity and newness of tying together public and private cloud.

Istio Aims To Be The Mesh Plumbing For Containerized Microservices
“The latter piece can be the tricky one when using containers to develop microservices. How do you link up all the component parts when they may be spread across a cluster of server nodes, and instances of them are continually popping up and later being retired as they are replaced by updated versions? In a service-oriented architecture (SOA), which microservices can be seen as the evolutionary heir to, this kind of task is analogous to that taken care of by an enterprise service bus (ESB). So what is needed is a kind of cloud-native version of an ESB.... This is the job that Istio, a relatively new open source project, aims to fill. It is officially described as a service mesh, because parts of it are distributed across the infrastructure alongside the containers it manages, and it sets out to meet the requirements of service discovery, load balancing, message routing, telemetry, and monitoring – and, of course, security.”

"With services like Amazon EKS, Azure Kubernetes Service, and Google Kubernetes Engine the developer experience is becoming more seamless and doesn't require a developer to install, manage, or operate Kubernetes clusters. We're going to see further innovation here so that a developer can just drop an application and run it in Kubernetes without having to build the Docker image."’

If the machinery to quickly update an old release continues to exist, and exist in a state of good (non-flakey) repair, cutting a patch release is just a matter of someone – you, your provider or your vendor – having the engineering gumption to push it through.

‘IBM is pushing their cloud hard than ever before. Even though it is mostly IBM Cloud Private, this is the first time I heard a more consistent hybrid cloud story. They have moved away from OpenStack (completely) and CloudFoundry (for the most part) and building a good hybrid cloud story using Kubernetes. Both he product team and services team seem to be quite excited about the opportunity Kubernetes offers them. Kubernetes on Bare Metal as a service is a step in the right direction. Unlike OpenStack and, to some extent, CloudFoundry, Kubernetes gives IBM a chance to have a more unified story from their infrastructure assets to middleware assets. Their “One Cloud Architecture” push is directed in this direction and helps IBM tell a consistent story across their entire portfolio.’

The Kubernetes Lesson
“In modern software development organizations, however, what gets used in development and testing environments has a habit of showing up in production. This was the opportunity that Kubernetes was built to take advantage of. It provided developers with a means – an open source means, naturally – of taking the containers they were so enamored of and running them in production environments, but without having to make determinations such as which containers run on which hardware. In its initial incarnation, this was the simple, basic job that Kubernetes was hired for.”

Look at stupid, sexy Kubernetes with all the cloud firms hanging off its musclebound arms
"I think that a lot of companies find themselves using Kubernetes because it's going to be built into the AWS's and the Azures and so on," Longbottom said. "So if you're going to be looking at a hybrid cloud then you might as well be putting Kubernetes in place in your private cloud environment, because you'll be able to plug far more easily into the public cloud component of the hybrid."

Docker Who? By Acquiring CoreOS, Red Hat Aims to Be the Kubernetes Company
“So while this deal clearly changes the playing field for Kubernetes in the developer space, and probably further marginalizes Docker, it may actually not be the kind of “market consolidation” that used to characterize the maturity of a software platform. More likely, it’s the latest step by a major player in the server marketplace to find a way to capitalize on the success of a product that, had it been commercial and proprietary from the start, might have been a gold mine… except that, had it been commercial and proprietary, no one would have ever heard of it.”

Red Hat tries CoreOS on for size – and buys
‘The elder open source software biz sees the younger firm's technology helping it automate and simplify its OpenShift container app platform, as well as improving its security and application portability in hybrid cloud environments. Red Hat says it will provide more details about how CoreOS products will be handled in the months ahead. It characterizes them as complementary to its own wares, althugh its plans may involve "integrating products and migrating customers to any combined offerings" at some later date.’

Cisco jumps on the Kubernetes bandwagon with its new Container Platform
“The company said the Container Platform takes care of the “setup, orchestration, authentication, monitoring, networking, load balancing and optimization” of containers. Deployment of containers is also simplified through automation, as the platform takes care of the most repetitive tasks in this process. It can also be extended to other important aspects of IT, such as networking, security and more, officials said.”

VMware and Pivotal’s PKS Distribution Marries Kubernetes with BOSH
“When we look at differentiators, I would say that there are a few and NSX-T, which provides east-west micro-segmentation of traffic between two VMs within the same network, is one of the strongest differentiators. BOSH is also a strong differentiator as well, in terms of offering self-healing capabilities. But being able to integrate with VMware tools is one of the key differentiators,” said Dul.
