Modernizing Your Purposes with Open Supply? Sure, It Can Be Completed!

We’re introducing new additions to the open supply tasks led by the Cisco Engineering crew which are contributing extra security measures and performance for Kubernetes and cloud native environments.

From April 18-21, 2023, the Cisco Rising Applied sciences and Incubation crew (ET&I) might be becoming a member of hundreds of cloud native lovers at this 12 months’s KubeCon+ CloudNativeCon in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. KubeCon + CloudNativeCon is a improbable alternative to spotlight the developments made within the open supply tasks and ET&I merchandise that proceed to enhance safety instruments, danger stock within the software stack, and software modernization to broaden the boundaries of cloud native environments.

Let’s dive in to what’s new:

Deal with vulnerabilities in cloud native environments with VMClarity 

Do you know that digital machines (VMs) are the primary most-used service on public clouds and the predominant technique for internet hosting containers? The ensuing assault paths may be extra elaborate than Amsterdam’s canal system. We noticed a necessity to offer safety for VMs towards safety threats corresponding to leaked secrets and techniques, malware, and rootkit in addition to system misconfigurations and vulnerability scanning, as they’re nonetheless very a lot a part of how companies run within the cloud.

That’s why we developed VMClarity, part of the OpenClarity suite of tasks—to deal with the vulnerabilities of utilizing digital machines in cloud native environments.

VMClarity gives agentless detection and administration of Software program Invoice of Supplies (SBOMs); and since it’s agentless, cloud native safety and observability on VMs are enhanced with out writing or modifying any code. .

Simply prolong service mesh capabilities with Nasp

Nasp is a brand new undertaking created to offer service mesh-type capabilities to non-cloud endpoints and smaller cloud environments. This light-weight, library-based open supply service mesh extender can convey functions working on edge gadgets, legacy VMs, and cellular shoppers into the Kubernetes service mesh. Purposes utilizing Nasp are dealt with as customary service mesh workloads with out the necessity for devoted proxies. .

Run real-time media functions with Media Streaming Mesh

We’re additionally introducing Media Streaming Mesh (MSM), an open supply undertaking that runs real-time media functions in cloud native Kubernetes environments extra effectively.

As Kubernetes is designed for working internet functions (that are by default non real-time), media functions are run in real-time for actions corresponding to reside media contribution and distribution, analytics of reside media for real-time machine studying evaluation or facial recognition, and reside feed viewing, to call a couple of.

Media Streaming Mesh permits media streaming functions to be run in cloud native and Kubernetes environments with out the workarounds. Like a service mesh, MSM offloads the media streaming from the applying utilizing the Kubernetes atmosphere successfully and because it was designed. Media Streaming Mesh might be accessible in a GitHub repository within the upcoming months.

Continued dedication to innovation via open supply

We’re dedicated to persevering with our open supply contributions to strengthen cloud native software safety and modernizing functions within the cloud native space. We’re proud to say that via our Open Supply Program Workplace, engineering and group groups, we contribute to quite a few CNCF tasks, SIGs, and committees. Add within the contributions we’ve made in established open supply tasks which are a part of organizations corresponding to The Linux Basis and the Cloud Native Computing Basis, and we’re blissful to say we’re simply getting began. Be part of us on this journey!
