Who could have predicted that 10 years later, Kubernetes would grow to become one of the largest […]
  • Completing the largest migration in Kubernetes history 2024-05-20
    Since as early as Kubernetes v1.7, the Kubernetes project has pursued the ambitious goal of removing built-in cloud provider integrations (KEP-2395).

  • Kubernetes 1.30: Read-only volume mounts can be finally literally read-only 2024-04-23
    Read-only volume mounts have been a feature of Kubernetes since the beginning. Surprisingly, read-only mounts are not completely read-only under certain conditions on Linux. As of the v1.30 release, they can be made completely read-only, with alpha support for recursive read-only mounts. Read-only volume mounts are not really read-only by default Volume mounts can be […]
  • Kubernetes 1.30: Beta Support For Pods With User Namespaces 2024-04-22
    Linux provides different namespaces to isolate processes from each other. For example, a typical Kubernetes pod runs within a network namespace to isolate the network identity and a PID namespace to isolate the processes. One Linux namespace that was left behind is the user namespace. This namespace allows us to isolate the user and group […]
