The View from KubeCon+CloudNativeCon – Containers and Kubernetes Become Enterprise Ready

In case there was any doubt about the direction containers and Kubernetes are going, KubeCon+CloudNativeCon 2018 in Seattle should have dispelled them. The path is clear – technology is maturing and keeps adding more features that make it conducive to mission-critical, enterprise applications. From the very first day, the talk was about service meshes and network functions, logging and traceability, and storage and serverless compute. These are couplets that define the next generation of management, visibility, and core capabilities of a modern distributed application. On top of that is emerging security projects such as SPIFFE & SPIRE, TUF, Falco, and Notary. Management, visibility, growth in core functionality, and security. All of these are critical to making container platforms enterprise ready.

“The future of containers and Kubernetes as the base of the new stack was on display at KubeCon+CloudNativeCon and it’s a bright one.

Tom Petrocelli, Research Fellow, Amalgam Insights”

If the scope of KubeCon+CloudNativeCon and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is any indication, the ecosystem is also growing. This year there were 8000 people at the conference – a sellout. The CNCF has grown to 300+ vendor members there are 46,000 contributors to its projects. That’s a lot of growth compared to just a few years ago. This many people don’t flock to sinking projects.

Observations on the Future of Red Hat from Red Hat Analyst Day

On November 8th, 2018, Amalgam Insights analysts Tom Petrocelli and Hyoun Park attended the Red Hat Analyst Day in Boston, MA. We had the opportunity to visit Red Hat’s Boston office in the rapidly-growing Innovation District, which has become a key tech center for enterprise technology companies. In attending this event, my goal was to learn more about the Red Hat culture that is being acquired as well as to see how Red Hat was taking on the challenges of multi-cloud management.

Throughout Red Hat’s presentations throughout the day, there was a constant theme of effective cross-selling, growing deal sizes including a record 73 deals of over $1 million in the last quarter, over 600 accounts with over $1 million in business in the last year, and increased wallet share year-over-year for top clients with 24 out of 25 of the largest clients increasing spend by an average of 15%. The current health of Red Hat is undeniable, regardless of the foibles of the public market. And the consistency of Red Hat’s focus on Open Source was undeniable across infrastructure, integration, application development, IT automation, IT optimization, and partner solutions, which demonstrated how synchronized and focused the entire Red Hat executive team presenters were, including

Torchbearer Case Study: OceanX Delivers the Consumer Subscription Experience with Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

(Note: Torchbearer Case Studies provide enterprises with a strong example of the “Art of the Possible” in using technology to enhance their business environment. Amalgam Insights provides emerging best practices based on the experience of the Torchbearer to inspire and educate Early Adopter and Early Majority buyers seeking to develop a strategic advantage.)

At Oracle Open World, I was interested in learning more about the Oracle Cloud and its role in data and analytics. Although Oracle has admittedly been relatively late to the enterprise cloud, the Oracle Cloud was front and center throughout Oracle Open World and it was interesting to see how Oracle was able to bring up enterprise technology deployments across its portfolio. One example of enterprise success in working with the Oracle Cloud that stood out was from OceanX.

At Oracle Open World, OceanX won the 2018 Oracle Innovation Award for Data Management. OceanX is a spinoff of Guthy-Renker started in 2016 to provide an integrated subscription commerce platform which brings together e-commerce, fulfilment, customer service, and business analytics associated with direct-to-consumer subscription programs. This allows consumer brands to provide personalized and bespoke products in their subscription offerings and to build consumer relationships based on a holistic view of the customer’s preferences, purchases, and interactions.

Containers Continue on Track for 2019: 3 Key Trends For the Maturing Container Ecosystem

Tom Petrocelli, Amalgam Insights Research Fellow

The past few years have been exciting ones for containers. All types of tools are available and a defined deployment pipeline has begun to emerge. Kubernetes and Docker have come to dominate the core technology. That, in turn, has brought the type of stability that allows for wide-scale deployments. The container ecosystem has exploded with lots of new software components that help maintain, manage, and operate container networks. Capabilities such as logging, load balancing, networking, and security that were previously the domain of system-wide software and appliances are now being brought into the individual application as components in the container cluster.

Open Source has played a big part in this process. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, or CNCF, has projects for all things container. More are added every day. That is in addition to the many other open source projects that support container architectures. The ecosystem just keeps growing.

Where do we go from here, at least through 2019?
