As virtualization continues to increase in importance, containers will increasingly take center stage. Over the coming months, expect to see alternatives to Kubernetes as the de facto scheduler, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) with its own open source project, Blox, and Docker, which integrated its Swarm container into its platform in June.

Consider these recent Light Reading news stories:

Also key to containers are the issues of statefulness and security. Multiple companies are working to make it practical to run stateful applications in containers. Others are tackling the ability of containers to share one OS kernel or to enable containers to divide processes into microservices, shoring up security.

Several container technology suppliers are featured in Virtuapedia, the online resource for all things related to virtualization:

  • The EPIC software platform from BlueData lets users quickly create Hadoop or Spark clusters across an enterprise and allow multiple clusters to share access to the same data storage.
  • PX-Enterprise from Portworx is virtual block storage fabric that deploys as a container and enables deployment of apps on any hardware.
  • Quay Enterprise from CoreOS is one container registry for an entire enterprise that's delivered as a set of containers that can run on any infrastructure.

More than 1,500 companies are now listed in Virtuapedia, making it the telecom industry’s most comprehensive resource for all things related to virtualization. Some 12,000 network professionals also are now registered with Virtuapedia, giving them access not only to vendor and product information but also to the latest industry news and research from Heavy Reading.

To get your company listed in Virtuapedia, go to the Get Listed tab on the site. To join the growing ranks of the virtualization community and get access to executive summaries of Heavy Reading’s research, go to the Register Now tab.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
