The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s annual conference, KubeCon, is taking place this week in Seattle to talk about the latest advancements and trends in the cloud-native computing era. As part of the conference, a number of companies have announced new releases and products dedicated to accelerating the adoption of cloud native.

Aqua Security announces integration with Datadog
Datadog and Aqua Security have announced a new partnership. Aqua Security will now integrate with Datadog’s cloud monitoring and analytics platform.

The integration will provide customers with real-time visibility into the security of their cloud applications, such as information on vulnerable images, untrusted running containers, and security anomalies.

“As organizations shift to more dynamic infrastructure through cloud and container technologies, communication between application and security teams is more important than ever,” said Ilan Rabinovitch, vice president of product and community at Datadog.  “By combining Datadog’s deep insights into containerized application performance with Aqua Security’s enforcement of security best practices, we are helping organizations bridge the gap between these traditionally siloed teams.”

Kublr 1.11 is now available
Kublr has announced that version 1.11 of its platform is now available. According to the company, Kublr 1.11 introduces major improvements to automation and control over deploying Kubernetes clusters in multiple environments.

The latest version is now available as a technical preview and will enter beta in January 2019.

Oracle launches a new cloud-native solution

DigitalOcean launches managed Kubernetes service
DigitalOcean has announced that its managed Kubernetes service is now production ready. New features of the release include guided configuration experiences, open APIs, and expanded version support.

Kubernetes promises to be one of the leading technologies in a developer’s arsenal to gain the scalability, portability and availability needed to build modern apps. Unfortunately, for many it’s extremely complex to manage and deploy,” said DigitalOcean VP of Product Shiven Ramji. “With DigitalOcean Kubernetes, we make running containerized apps consumable for any developer, regardless of their skills or resources. We do this by automating the management of Kubernetes clusters and the provisioning of nodes to make it faster and easier to run containerized apps. We also infuse guided UI experiences and open APIs to provide the right level of support throughout the developer’s journey.”
