Docker Logging

As more organizations are moving to a cloud-native architecture, there is an ever-increasing need to monitor applications and services. Logging is a crucial part of this process, as it provides the insights and visibility to identify potential issues and track application performance. When it comes to managing and monitoring applications, Docker logging is an essential part of the process.


How to Create a Kubernetes Preview Environment

A Kubernetes preview environment is an isolated environment that allows developers to test their code at any time without worrying about how others may be affected. While implementations and use cases may vary, simulating a production environment as closely as possible is the main goal. Imagine you’re part of a team developing a complex API, and you’ve been tasked with adding a new endpoint that relies on features within the codebase currently being optimized by one of your team members.


The Complete Traffic Replay Tutorial

Traffic replay is a way of capturing real-world traffic, with the purpose of being replayed against services in any environment. Imagine you’re an engineer working on an e-commerce website and Black Friday is just around the corner. The website experiences much more load than anticipated and ends up crashing.


Building a Mock Server from User Traffic in Kubernetes

A mock server can prove useful in many circumstances. Imagine you’re an engineer working on optimizing a feature inside of an existing API that relies on multiple other microservices to function properly. To fully test the optimizations, you’ll have to set up test versions of all the dependencies, which quickly proves to be quite a task in and of itself. This is where a mocks—a server that simulates the behavior of a real server—can be very beneficial.

Kubernetes Preview Environments - Adoption, Use Cases & Implementations

No matter what application you're building and who your target customers are, everyone can agree that it's critical to avoid broken deployments. To aid in this goal, many tools and concepts have been invented, with Kubernetes preview environments being one of them. In this post, you'll get a deeper understanding of how preview environments work, how organizations are using them, and how you can get started yourself. But to put it simply: preview environments allow teams to deploy a version of their applications during the development process, interacting with it as if it was deployed in production.


Optimize Kubernetes Performance Part 2: Creating Comparisons

The main idea behind Kubernetes is to create a standardized approach to running containers in the cloud. Whether you’re running AKS on Azure or EKS on Amazon, your cluster should still behave in more or less the same way. But that’s not to say you’re locked in to doing things one way; Kubernetes still offers a lot of flexibility in many cases. This is what experienced engineers take advantage of when trying to optimize Kubernetes performance.
