Technology Short Take 88

Welcome to Technology Short Take #88! Travel is keeping me pretty busy this fall (so much for things slowing down after VMworld EMEA), and this has made it a bit more difficult to stick to my self-imposed biweekly schedule for the Technology Short Takes (heck, I couldn’t even get this one published on Friday!). Sorry about that! Hopefully the irregular schedule is outweighed by the value found in the content I’ve collected for you.

Networking

Servers/Hardware

Nothing this time (sorry!). I’ll keep an eye open for links to include next time around.

Security

  • Mike Foley provides an overview of key manager concepts and topology basics for VM and vSAN encryption.
  • If you’re studying for your CISSP, you might find this article helpful.

Cloud Computing/Cloud Management

Operating Systems/Applications

  • For those of you that might be a bit behind the times and still getting up to speed on containers, Ryan Kelly has a post describing containers for the vSphere admin.
  • The popular open source container registry project, Harbor, has released a new version (version 1.2). This version introduces vulnerability scanning (leveraging the Clair project), and Henry Zhang has a blog post with more details.
  • Brendan Gregg has a pretty detailed write-up on migrating from Solaris to Linux (pertinent given the recent layoff of the majority of the Solaris developers).
  • If you’re not clear on the role/status of CRI-O, check out this article by Scott McCarty of Red Hat.
  • Michael Friis provides more details on a recent big change to the Docker Official Images: they’re now multi-platform.

Storage

Virtualization

Career/Soft Skills

That’s all for this time around. Thanks for reading!
