Kubernetes 1.23 is about to be released, and it comes packed with novelties! Where do we begin? This release brings 45 enhancements, on par with the 56 in Kubernetes 1.22 and the 50 in Kubernetes 1.21. Of those 45 enhancements, 11 are graduating to Stable, a whopping 15 are existing features that keep improving, and 19 are completely new. The new features included in this version are generally small, but really welcomed. Like the kubectl events command, support for OpenAPI v3, or gRPC probes.

In this article, we’ll cover the three main challenges you may face when maintaining your own Prometheus LTS solution. In the beginning, Prometheus claimed that it wasn’t a long-term metrics storage, the expected outcome was that somebody would eventually create that long-term storage (LTS) for Prometheus metrics. Currently, there are several open-source projects to provide long-term storage (Prometheus LTS). These community projects are ahead of the rest: Cortex, Thanos, and M3.

Securing a cloud-native environment, such as SUSE Rancher, requires unique considerations. New abstractions like containers, plus the dynamic nature of a Kubernetes orchestrated environment can hamper visibility, especially for legacy tools that aren’t designed for containers and cloud. To help, Sysdig and SUSE have launched a SUSE One Partner Solution Stack designed to not only showcase our joint solution, but also to provide easy ways for you to get started.

Monitoring MySQL with Prometheus is easy to do thanks to the MySQL Prometheus Exporter. MySQL doesn’t need an introduction – it’s one of the most used relational databases in the world, and it’s also open-source! Being such a popular database means that the community behind it is also huge. So don’t worry: you won’t be alone.

After trying several Prometheus exporters, I think I’m ready to fight the final boss: Monitoring a Windows cluster with Prometheus. I need a dashboard where I can monitor all the Windows machines in a single pane of glass. Let’s do it.

In this article, you’ll learn, through an example, how to configure Keda to deploy a Kubernetes Horizontal Pod Autoscaler (HPA) that uses Sysdig Monitor metrics. Keda is an open source project that allows using Prometheus queries to scale Kubernetes pods. In Trigger a Kubernetes HPA with Prometheus metrics, you learned how to install and configure Keda to create a Kubernetes HPA triggered by a standard Prometheus query.

In this article, you’ll learn how to configure Keda to deploy a Kubernetes HPA that uses Prometheus metrics. The Kubernetes Horizontal Pod Autoscaler can scale pods based on the usage of resources, such as CPU and memory. This is useful in many scenarios, but there are other use cases where more advanced metrics are needed – like the waiting connections in a web server or the latency in an API.

Redis is a simple – but very well optimized – key-value open source database that is widely used in cloud-native applications. In this article, you will learn how to monitor Redis with Prometheus, and the most important metrics you should be looking at. Despite its simplicity, Redis has become a key component of many Kubernetes and cloud applications. As a result, performance issues or problems with its resources can cause other components of the application to fail.

Kubernetes has multiple moving pieces that you need to monitor, such as the elements that make up the Control Plane. As your clusters grow, collecting metrics from all the Kubernetes sources becomes highly tedious. Comprehensive monitoring for Kubernetes reduces the operational complexity by providing the visibility you need to: Sysdig Monitor offers an out-of-the-box user experience for monitoring your Kubernetes environment, including pre-built dashboards and a comprehensive alerts library that you can use right away.

Prometheus is the de-facto standard for monitoring Kuberentes and cloud-native applications. However, as your Prometheus environment grows, it gets more and more complicated to use and maintain. Prometheus exporters need to be selected, installed, configured, and updated. And PromQL has a steep learning curve. How can you focus on your business, instead of building a monitoring solution?

Software is always changing and improving, and within this process, developers can unknowingly introduce vulnerabilities. Discover how Sysdig Secure provides a single vulnerability management solution for both containers and hosts. It allows you to validate compliance across your whole infrastructure. And it's so easy to deploy, that you will be scanning images and hosts in seconds.

Thanks to serverless you can focus on your apps, instead of your infrastructure. Take AWS Fargate as an example. A service where you can deploy containers as Tasks, without worrying what physical machine they run on. However, without access to the host How can you detect suspicious activity? Like, file changes on your Fargate tasks? Sysdig provides runtime detection and response to secure Fargate serverless containers.

The rapid pace of digital transformation is accelerating the shift to cloud-native applications using containers and Kubernetes to speed the pace of delivery. But application delivery is one thing. Application uptime performance and protection are another. For cloud teams already running production one fact is clear, monitoring and troubleshooting are only the beginning. They also need to own security and compliance for their apps. In cloud-native DevOps is not enough. It's time for secure DevOps.

Your application runs on containers and talks to multiple cloud services. How can you continuously secure all of it? With Sysdig you can. Continuously flag cloud misconfigurations before the bad guys get in. And suspicious activity, like unusual logins from leaked credentials. All in a single console that makes it easier to validate your cloud security posture. It only takes a few minutes to get started.

Implementing image scanning on a Kubernetes admission controller is an interesting strategy to apply policies that need Kubernetes context, and create a last line of defense for your cluster. You are probably following the image scanning best practices already, detecting vulnerabilities and misconfigurations before they can be exploited. However, not everything you deploy goes through your CI/CD pipeline or known registries. There are also third-party images and, sometimes, manual deploys.

A unified approach for security, monitoring, and forensics in containerized and microservice environments.

Sysdig is the first unified approach to monitor and secure containers across the entire software lifecycle.

Sysdig was born out of the belief that open source tools will be at the foundation of your next generation infrastructure. See our projects for system visibility, and container security, as well as partner projects we’ve embraced.

Accelerate your transition to containers, and then have confidence in your ongoing operations. We've built the cloud-native intelligence platform to create a single, more effective way to secure, monitor, and assure your critical applications:

  • Container security (Sysdig Secure): Protect and assure your applications. Bring together image scanning and run-time protection to identify vulnerabilities, block threats, enforce compliance, and audit activity across your microservices.
  • Enterprise-grade Docker monitoring (Sysdig Monitor): Enhance software reliability and accelerate problem resolution with advanced Kubernetes integration and built-in Prometheus monitoring capabilities.
  • Automatic orchestrator integration (Sysdig ServiceVision): We use Sysdig ServiceVision to dynamically map services using metadata from Kubernetes, OpenShift, AWS, Azure, Google, Mesos, or Docker EE, and more. With this insight, you can isolate and solve problems faster.

Our container intelligence platform monitors and secures millions of containers across hundreds of enterprises, including Fortune 500 companies and web-scale properties.
