55th Anniversary of Moore’s Law

April 2020 marks 55 years since Intel co-founder Gordon Moore published 'Cramming more components onto integrated circuits (pdf)', the paper that subsequently became known as the origin for his eponymous law.

ServiceMeshCon 2019: Platform Plumbing, Debugging, and Custom Implementations

The inaugural Cloud Native Computing Foundation ServiceMeshCon 2019 took place during November in San Diego, and was part of the KubeCon and CloudNativeCon “Day Zero” program. Key takeaways from the day included: a service mesh manages all service-to-service communication and provides dynamic service discovery, traffic management, and cross/non functional requirements; there are clear benefits obtained by using this new technology, but there are also tradeoffs, such as additional operational complexity; and service mesh technology is rapidly becoming part of the platform “plumbing” — the interesting innovation within this space is happening in relation to the higher-level abstractions and the human-focused control planes.
