Announcing Kubernetes version 1.24 for the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.

We are excited to announce the availability of Kubernetes version 1.24 for your clusters that are running in IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service. This is our 19th release of Kubernetes. With the Kubernetes service, you can easily upgrade your clusters without the need for deep Kubernetes knowledge. When you deploy new clusters, the default Kubernetes version remains 1.22; you can also choose to immediately deploy version 1.24. Learn more about deploying clusters here.

Kubernetes version 1.24

In addition to all the great Kubernetes features provided in this release, IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service version 1.24 also includes numerous component updates. See the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service version 1.24 changelog for details.

Kubernetes support and updates

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service now supports the latest versions of Kubernetes: 1.20, 1.21, 1.22, 1.23 and 1.24. Clusters that are running Kubernetes version 1.19 or earlier are unsupported. Clusters running version 1.20 remain deprecated with end of support tentatively scheduled for 15 June 2022. Clusters running version 1.21 are now deprecated with end of support tentatively scheduled for August 2022

It is important to note that clusters that run a deprecated or unsupported Kubernetes version may not receive fixes for security vulnerabilities until they are updated to a supported version. Review the potential impact of each Kubernetes version update, and update your clusters today.

Optimize observability with IBM Cloud Logs to help improve infrastructure and app performance

5 min read - There is a dilemma facing infrastructure and app performance—as workloads generate an expanding amount of observability data, it puts increased pressure on collection tool abilities to process it all.

A recent IDC study found that 57% of large enterprises are either collecting too much or too little observability data.…
