Kubernetes management company Kublr has announced that it has gained validation as a Microsoft Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes provider. This means that Kublr customers will be able to integrate their Azure cloud footprints with their data center and multi-cloud capacity, which will enable them to manage applications across multiple locations. 

Kublr already supports several Microsoft Azure features, such as control over resources provisioned for Kubernetes clusters; Azure Virtual Machines, Availability Sets, and Scale Sets; Azure zones and zone pinning support; Azure ARM resources extensions; and support for custom images. 

“By successfully completing the Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes validation program, Kublr and Azure customers will both benefit from the ability to deploy Kubernetes in the data center with improved, simplified visibility and management thanks to the Kublr platform while at the same time maintaining the ability to use advanced Azure application management and CI/CD tools and deep Azure integration,” said Oleg Chunikhin, co-founder and chief technology officer, Kublr.

Snyk Security Intelligence now integrated with Amazon Inspector

Amazon Inspector is a security assessment service for applications deployed on AWS. It automatically discovers Amazon EC2 instances and container images that reside in the Amazon Elastic Container Registry, and assesses for software vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. 

The new integration with Snyk Security Intelligence will provide Amazon Inspector with another source of vulnerability intelligence. According to Snyk, integration with its solution helps improve the accuracy of Inspector findings and provides information to help prioritize issues. 

Key benefits include the ability to consolidate Amazon EC2 and container vulnerability management, optimize remediation efforts, and reduce mean time to resolve vulnerabilities, according to Snyk.
