The latest security vulnerability discovered within the Kubernetes cluster orchestrator could allow intruders to access, modify or delete computing and storage resources configured across a cluster. The flaw in the Kubernetes server API, designated CVE-2019-11247, allows access and deletion of those “custom resources.” Intruders could access cluster-wide resources with only standard role-based access control, or RBAC, permissions. In response, ... Full article

5G is massively faster than 4G: 5GB/second vs. 100-200MB/second. Impressive, yes, but higher data rates explains only part of 5G's significance. The coming 5G cellular network will bring the network up to speed with faster processing (GPUs, FPGAs, ASICs), interconnects (NVLink, CXL) and communications fabrics (Infiniband, enhanced Ethernet). In turn, this means 5G, in combination with developments across the ... Full article

Persistent storage emerged as an early requirement for shifting application containers to full production. Industry standards groups have since taken up the cause by launching so-called “cloud-native” storage projects around key components like the Kubernetes cluster orchestrator. Among those efforts is Rook, an open-source (Apache 2.0) storage effort launched recently by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Rook is ... Full article
