The Kubernetes project is keeping up its breakneck development pace with the release of Kubernetes 1.10 on March 26, 2018. The release announcement discusses a handful of important technical changes, but even more intriguing are results from a Cloud Native Computing Foundation survey, which were included in the announcement.
The survey shows that 49% of the Asia-based companies surveyed, including major names like Huawei and BlackRock are already using Kubernetes in production, and another 49% are considering it. This means 98% of surveyed companies are depending on Kubernetes as a critical element in their infrastructure (or preparing to do so).
If your team is not evaluating Kubernetes, it’s falling behind — plain and simple.
From a technical perspective, this is a solid stabilization release, promoting important storage subsystems to beta status and giving cloud providers more control over the authentication process through new (alpha-tagged) extensions to the Cloud Controller Manager.
Particularly exciting is that the beta storage subsystems allow one to access locally-attached storage through Kubernetes’s persistent volume claim mechanism. This will allow a substantial speedup for any system that depends on low-latency I/O.
