Using iter8 and Kiali to evolve your cloud applications while gaining insights into their behavior

IBM Research has partnered with Red Hat to bring iter8 into Kiali. Iter8 lets developers automate the progressive rollout of new microservice versions. From Kiali, developers can launch these rollouts interactively, watch their progress while iter8 shifts user traffic to the best microservice version, gain real-time insights into how competing versions (two or more) perform, and uncover trends on service metrics across versions.

Improving resource efficiency for Kubernetes clusters via load-aware scheduling

Unfortunately, there are no default scheduler plugins in Kubernetes to consider the actual load in clusters for scheduling. To achieve that goal, we developed a way to optimize resource allocation through load-aware scheduling and submitted our "Trimaran: Real Load Aware Scheduling" Kubernetes enhancement proposal, with the hope of soon merging this feature into the Kubernetes scheduler plugin.
