Oracle demonstrates its cloud-native portfolio at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU 2022.
KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU 2022 is the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF) annual conference. The CNCF develops open-source standards for cloud-native app development. Oracle uses the standards in its cloud-native portfolio, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Cloud Native services. Oracle is present at the conference to demonstrate its portfolio. We’ll be covering the most important solutions.
OCI Service Mesh and Cluster API
OCI Service Mesh allows organizations to manage, secure and monitor microservices without having to modify applications. Service Mesh is based on Envoy, an open-source proxy for cloud apps. Envoy connects to a microservice of choice, after which traffic becomes manageable. Service Mesh presents the performance and security of microservices in a central overview. The service is free.
In addition, Oracle will demonstrate the Kubernetes Cluster API, a project supported in various OCI services. The Cluster API includes multiple APIs and tools for provisioning, updating and managing Kubernetes clusters. Oracle integrates the project into multiple network and security services.
Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes
Furthermore, Oracle provides a fully-managed Kubernetes service, the Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE). Security and compliance are key. OKE allows organizations to create clusters, deploy pods and scale without violating regulations.
Moreover, the service scans container images for vulnerabilities. Images are continuously monitored to recognise suspicious modifications. Clusters can be secured by restricting Kubernetes traffic to an on-pemises network. OKE integrates with OCI Identity and Access Management (IAM), which enhances security via role-based access control (RBAC), among other things.
Finally, Oracle has long provided a method for infrastructure-as-code. Oracle Functions allows organizations to develop, run, and scale cloud apps without managing the infrastructure required. Applications are pushed to infrastructure from a single, secure environment.
