Building an Istio Service Mesh Across Anthos GKE and GKE On-Prem(29 Oct 2019)
It’s tough to browse much of today’s microservices landscape without stumbling upon or thinking about a service mesh. Istio brings service mesh, service discovery, and visibility to microservices architectures which of course includes Kubernetes. During a recent event I built a demo showcasing an Istio-based service mesh that stretches across two different environments leveraging nothing but Istio Ingress Gateway services in GKE (Google Kubernetes Engine) and GKE On-Prem (Google’s new On-Premise offering).

Navigating Anthos with Arctiq(29 Jul 2019)
Arctiq recently hosted an event with Google and Sysdig in Toronto titled "Navigating Anthos - a Focus on Hybrid Cloud Visibility". At the event we provided a deep dive into the Anthos toolkit including various use cases we are hearing about from customers and our eco-system. The team spent the majority of the time on showing off what's possible with Anthos and how to configure various aspects of the software stack that's available today.

Collaborating with Google on Cloud Services Platform(14 Mar 2019)
Every once and a while I am reminded that all this cool new technology we are fortunate to make a living from still comes down to the people you get to meet and interact with. Looking back about 9 months, a couple weeks after we announced our official partnership with Google I was introduced to a couple Googlers that were working on a fresh new Kubernetes project. Most of the conversation was not about the technology or what they were building but what the market and our customers needed to be successful with Kubernetes. At this point it was no secret that Kubernetes was a very big deal and many people trying to deploy and manage it as scale were having some challenges. Google was clearly looking to solve these challenges and also take things to a new level.
Knative = A Serverless Developer Experience based on Kubernetes(20 Feb 2019)
Better late than never, I had started this blog back in late October after Github Universe in San Francisco. I stopped by the Google office in Seattle on my way home and was able to meet with some of the Knative team and chat about all this Serverless hype. I had been interested in what the Knative community was building and how the project would impact kubernetes. Knative is being developed by the likes of Google, Pivotal, SAP, Red Hat, IBM, and many others.
