Continental Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
In this blog post, we'll introduce you to WebAssembly. We'll start with a history lesson on the Assembly language, which was created to make programming easier and boost productivity. Then we'll move on to WebAssemby, a descendent of Assembly, and cover what it is, the problems it solves and how it does that.
Containers and Kubernetes have changed the way we operate applications. This has been a boon for Site Reliability Engineers (SREs) and DevOps professionals who handle infrastructure management. Yet, it has come at a cost to many who develop and operate applications. Their experience has become more complicated and cumbersome. New open source projects are being developed that build on the lower-level cloud native projects to simplify the process. In this post, you'll learn about three such projects: Rancher Desktop, Epinio and Kubewarden.
Kubewarden is an open-source policy engine that integrates with Kubernetes using the widely adopted Webhook Admission Control mechanism. The project provides a set of Kubernetes Custom Resources that simplify the process of enforcing policies on a cluster. Kubewarden differentiates itself in the way it creates, distributes and executes policies.
