K2D by Portainer

K2D by Portainer

2024-05-1732:42

Bret and Nirmal are joined by Neil Cresswell and Steven Kang from Portainer to look at K2D, a new project that enables us to leverage Kubernetes tooling to manage Docker containers on tiny devices at the far edge.K2D stands for Kubernetes to Docker, which is a bit of a crazy idea -- it's a partial Kubernetes API running on top of Docker Engine without needing a full Kubernetes control plane. If you work with very small devices, including older Raspberry PIs, 32-bit machines, maybe industry sensors and the infrastructure we now call 'edge', the container hardware is often hard for you to make simple, reliable, and automated all at the same time. So this project uses less resources than a single node K3S and still allows you to use Kubernetes tools to deploy and manage your containers, which are in fact just running on a Docker Engine with no full-fledged Kubernetes distribution going on there.We get into far more detail on the architecture, the Portainer team's motivations for this new open source project and what its limitations are, because it's not real Kubernetes, so it can't do everything.Be sure to check out the video version of this episode for any demos.This episode is from our YouTube Live show on March 28, 2024 (Ep. 260).★Topics★K2D websiteK2D DocsCreators & Guests Cristi Cotovan - Editor Beth Fisher - Producer Bret Fisher - Host Neil Cresswell - Guest Nirmal Mehta - Host Steven Kang - Guest (00:00) - Intro (02:40) - Introducing the guests (03:56) - Why K2D?

Bret and Nirmal are joined by Dan Lorenc from Chainguard to walk them through Chainguard's approach to building secure, minimal container images for popular open source software.They discuss why it is important to have secure and minimal container images. Dan explains how Chainguard helps remove the pain of CVEs, laggy software updates and patches and much more. Chainguard is now available also on Docker Hub.They spend the first part of the show talking about the week's big news: the XZ supply chain attack, and Dan was the best man to explain it. They also touch on CVEs, things you can do to reduce the attack surface, SLSA, and more during this jam-packed show.Be sure to check out the live recording of the complete show from April 4, 2024 on YouTube (Ep. 261).★Topics★Chainguard Website Vulnerability Management Certification course True Cost of Vulnerability Management Chainguard Images Chainguard on Docker Hub AnnouncementCreators & Guests Cristi Cotovan - Editor Beth Fisher - Producer Bret Fisher - Host Nirmal Mehta - Host Dan Lorenc - Guest (00:00) - Intro (05:14) - Dan's Take on the XZ Hack (14:59) - Chainguard Distro Creation (21:21) - Chainguard in Docker Hub Announcement (24:26) - Free Images vs Private Images (26:27) - Zero CVE Approach (28:33) - Ways to Reduce Attack Surfaces (39:56) - Chainguard Academy (41:08) - Real Time Antivirus Malware Scanner (43:52) - Google Distro Lists Worth Using (45:56) - Chainguard for Buildpacks (46:20) - SLSA (56:08) - What's Next for Chainguard?

Bret and Nirmal are joined by Phil Estes of AWS to show us the Finch project, which bundles the best open source tools for building and running containers locally. Now it runs on macOS and Windows WSL2.We've been talking with Phil about this show for months, and now that Finch has come to Windows, we thought it was the best time to clue you in as to why AWS created the Finch project and what it does. You've probably heard of containerd, the most popular container runtime on the planet and BuildKit, the best way, in my opinion, to build container images. Those two work hand in hand in Docker and many other container tools. But you might not have heard of nerdctl or Lima, which are also open source tools that work with containerd and BuildKit to help you run containers locally in a virtual machine. Well, AWS had the idea of making an easy installer for these four tools. That's how Finch was born. Finch is not meant to be a replacement of your existing way to run containers. The tools it installs are a bit of a minimum feature set, if you will, and more focused on providing people the exact tools AWS uses in its container platforms, mainly containerd and BuildKit, which are everywhere in AWS. Rather than building something that's feature equivalent to other local container solutions like Docker Desktop and Rancher Desktop, Finch keeps it simple and does the bare minimum.  If you just want an easily installable and minimal way to build and run local containers at the command line with no goofy, high-end fancy features, pure open source and just on Mac and Windows, at least at this point, you should give Finch a try.Be sure to check out the live recording of the complete show from February 22, 2024 on YouTube (Ep. 255).★Topics★Finch WebsiteBret's local container runtime spreadsheetCreators & Guests Phil Estes - Guest Cristi Cotovan - Editor Beth Fisher - Producer Bret Fisher - Host Nirmal Mehta - Host (00:00) - Intro (00:35) - What is Finch?

Bret is joined by Neil Cresswell, CEO and co-founder of Portainer, to show us new features in Portainer and how it can manage, deploy, and orchestrate all your container workloads from a single Docker Engine, all the way to multi-cluster and IoT Kubernetes deployments.Portainer is much more comprehensive than you might think. Docker on the Edge, Podman, Kubernetes, in the cloud, in hybrid, you name it; it seems that Portainer supports it. In the show, we also get some updates on new things that have happened in the last couple of years, including adding GitOps support to Portainer, the ability to deploy Kubernetes nodes, and infrastructure.Be sure to check out the live recording of the complete show with demos from February 29, 2024 on YouTube (Ep. 256).★Topics★Portainer Website Portainer on YouTubePortainer on XPortainer on LinkedInPortainer Demo: Kubernetes the "easy" wayCreators & Guests Cristi Cotovan - Editor Beth Fisher - Producer Bret Fisher - Host Neil Cresswell - Guest (00:00) - Intro (02:50) - How Portainer Started (05:38) - Portainer's Strongest Use Cases (08:56) - Portainer's Cluster Provisioning (12:42) - Docker Desktop and Portainer (15:22) - GitOps with Portainer (18:43) - K2D Teaser (21:34) - Portainer Across Different Environment Types (25:21) - Portainer's Focus on IoT and Edge (29:01) - Portainer's Evolution and Future Developments (35:03) - Passwords and Secrets Capabilities in Portainer (40:15) - AI Capabilities in Portainer (42:06) - Portainer Editions, Licenses and Pricing (43:09) - Using Traefik for Ingress (44:53) - What's Next for Portainer?

Bret and Nirmal are joined by Ivan Burazin and Chad Metcalf to debut Daytona, an open source "codespaces equivalent."Daytona is a development environment manager designed to automate all the tedious steps a developer needs to perform to set up their development environment. "Essentially, it transforms any machine into a codespaces equivalent."Where Daytona is actually starting in the enterprise is focusing on large dev environment solutions and management of those, and then trickling down to individual developers. So there are two very similar solutions to a problem of many developers and their varying ways that they set up their environments for development, but they're coming at it from two ends of the spectrum.

Bret and Nirmal are joined by Melissa McKay, Developer Advocate at JFrog and Docker Captain, to discuss the best and worst of 2023.We recorded this episode in December of 2023 where we talked through our favorite tools. Whether a DevOps oriented tool or not, it just might be the things we like to use on containers and in Cloud Native DevOps. This is a fun episode of three friends talking about what they love. And I sometimes I think these are the best shows because we didn't plan them out.

Bret is joined by Matan Mishan & Roy Razon of Livecycle to discuss developer platforms and how to improve developer collaboration and speeding up feedback and previews.We talk about the various delays encountered in pull requests due to feedback processes, and how Lifecycle's tools aim to shorten this feedback loop in Docker Desktop, local CLI with Preevy, and automated CI workflows. I like how Lifecycle provides multiple locations and ways to get access to people in the preview environments that really lets you just fit the different parts of the tool into your workflow, as opposed to one way to do everything. It's great for getting feedback quickly during the PR process, rather than making people set up their own environments to test their changes. I also liked their ideas around how the feedback loops can be improved.This episode contains great demos so be sure to also check out the live recording of the complete show from December 21, 2023 on YouTube (Ep. #246). ★Topics★Livecycle's WebsitePreevy RepositoryLivecycle Docker ExtensionCreators & Guests Bret Fisher - Host Matan Mishan - Guest Roy Razon - Guest Beth Fisher - Producer Cristi Cotovan - Editor (00:00) - Intro (01:57) - Internal Developer Platform: a self-service solution (06:38) - Lifecycle and the Docker Extension (24:10) - Using GitHub Environments (27:46) - First Steps and What's Next You can also support my free material by subscribing to my YouTube channel and my weekly newsletter at bret.news!Grab the best coupons for my Docker and Kubernetes courses.Join my cloud native DevOps community on Discord.Grab some merch at Bret's Loot BoxHomepage bretfisher.com

Tailscale Everything

Tailscale Everything

2024-01-0555:06

Bret is joined by Alex Kretzschmar to talk about Tailscale, a universal VPN that connects teams, devices, and development environments for easy access to remote resources.Alex and I talk about projects he's worked on in containers over the years and then we quickly get into Tailscale and talking about why he joined the team there. Tailscale is one of those tools that's hard to put down. I've used it for years to connect my personal devices to my home server lab when I'm traveling or servers I might have on the internet that I run temporarily. It connects them all together in a seamless VPN. The product itself comes up a lot in our Discord server when people are talking about needing some secure remote access to something anywhere in the world. Tailscale keeps adding more and more features, I can't really keep up, so we had Alex on the show to talk about all the new stuff, including a client for Apple TV, which at first, I didn't quite understand why, but now it totally makes sense; and a Kubernetes operator that does some slick things around connecting engineers on their local machines to clusters. I found Alex at the Tailscale booth at KubeCon this year and invited him on the show to talk about this relatively new yet ubiquitous-feeling product.  The live recording of the complete show from November 30, 2023 is on YouTube (Ep. #243)★Topics★Tailscale websiteHeadscale websiteTailscale CommunityTailscale Docker Mod Blog PostID Headers DemoDevrel DemoCreators & Guests Cristi Cotovan - Editor Beth Fisher - Producer Bret Fisher - Host Alex Kretzschmar - Guest (00:00) - Tailscale Everything (19:37) - Tailscale Licensing (28:24) - Tailscale vs Other Networking Products (32:33) - Server and Key Exchange (33:50) - Does Tailscale Support 'Trunking'?

I teach it in my courses, I've used it for many years, and I was excited to have Chris on to talk about the ways to automate the creation of a VM in Multipass, and dig into the various virtualization, backends and networking options.  We also talk about Multipass blueprints where in a demo, he shows off how to create a VM with Docker installed in a single command. It actually reminds me of Docker Machine, if you've been around a while. That also mounts your code directly into the VM and sets a host alias so that the Docker commands will pass through to Docker in the VM transparently.If you can imagine that it basically means that you can run Docker in the VM and use it from the host as if it isn't in a VM. And then we had some great audience questions about various features of Multipass and how to use it for multi-node clustering and exposing VMs to your local network.Live recording of the complete show from September 21, 2023 is on YouTube (Ep. #235). Includes demos.★Topics★Multipass websiteCreators & Guests Cristi Cotovan - Editor Beth Fisher - Producer Bret Fisher - Host Nirmal Mehta - Host Christopher Townsend - Guest (00:00) - Intro (01:42) - Introducing Chris Townsend (02:43) - Multipass Elevator Pitch (07:10) - Getting Started with Multipass (16:11) - Interacting with an Instance (18:21) - Changing Image Storage Location (19:32) - Does Multipass work with Hyper-V Cluster?

NetBackup for Kubernetes

NetBackup for Kubernetes

2023-10-2749:501

Bret is joined by Demetrius Malbrough and Joseph D'angelo from Veritas, the company that makes NetBackup amongst many other data protection tools.NetBackup has been around at least 25 years and I've been using it over 20 years, although not recently. So we had the two gentlemen from Veritas on the show to break down the evolution of NetBackup to a Kubernetes native backup solution. We also talked about additional products that make sense in a backup context, like their InfoScale storage management solution, and we tried to break down some of the technicals. What are we talking about when we mean deploying NetBackup on Kubernetes?  How does InfoScale fit into that? And generally, just helping me catch up with the last few years as NetBackup 10.0 has been released. I asked lots of questions and we got some interesting questions from the audience.The Live recording of the complete show from October 19, 2023 is on YouTube (Ep. #238).★Topics★Veritas Kubernetes solutionsInfoScale Free Developer Edition60 day–trial of Veritas InfoScale for KubernetesCreators & Guests Bret Fisher - Host Cristi Cotovan - Editor Beth Fisher - Producer Demetrius Malbrough - Guest Joseph D'Angelo - Guest You can also support my free material by subscribing to my YouTube channel and my weekly newsletter at bret.news!Grab the best coupons for my Docker and Kubernetes courses.Join my cloud native DevOps community on Discord.Grab some merch at Bret's Loot BoxHomepage bretfisher.com (00:00) - Intro (01:15) - Introducing the guests (03:38) - The Evolution of NetBackup (07:45) - The NetBackup Pitch (10:52) - How is NetBackup Deployed?

I would like to point out that the default docker volumes use overlay2, which has some overhead, it does not support O_DIRECT flag either, which can mess with the performance of some database engines such as mysql innodb the overall difference, however is minimal. I would really appreciate it if I was corrected on these 2
