Six Steps to Successful Cloud Native Migration (Part 2)

by Pini Reznik

Every time we guide another enterprise client onto the cloud, Container Solutions gains new experience and insights. We used this knowledge to refine the successful migration process into six steps. Previously, we examined each step in depth in “When is the WRONG time to use Kubernetes?”. We then returned to consider them again in conjunction with case studies from organisations, like the [...]

Our Terraform configurations have some important information which is needed by applications running on the cluster. These are either values for which our Terraform resources are the primary source, or values which are outputs from them. Here are some examples of the types of values we want to [...]

Cloud Based FPGA’s: We’re Not Quite There Yet

Alternative Text by Cyle Riggs

FPGA’s, Field Programmable Gate Arrays, are reprogrammable digital logic circuits able to shape shift into just about any digital circuit you can imagine: neural networks, image processors, CPU’s… the possibilities are endless. The idea is that adding an FPGA to an architecture allows one to expand on the generalized functionality offered in the modern CPU, adding custom hardware features [...]
