With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the resulting big data that goes with it, we need a technology that pulls it all together to inform predictive analytics and help us make sense of the information.
Container images will soon underpin all of our mission critical applications. Therefore, we must ensure that we are using the highest quality containers images at every stage of the development cycle on through to production.
The changing needs of a modern software development team can be daunting at first glance. There's often hesitation within organizations to move from familiar, traditional software development methods to a more agile working environment.
SELinux is one of the key security features within Linux. It is a foundational part of many modern technologies like containers. With a history of more than 15 years, SELinux is well known among system administrators—yet too often not activated on outside facing, production systems.
