2017 was a turning point for container orchestration, as other contenders for container orchestration winner waved the white flag and announced support for Kubernetes. Kubernetes as next-gen infrastructure not only abstracts out compute, storage, and network for container workloads, but also provides many features traditionally only offered in PaaS platforms, such as automated deployment, scaling, load balancing, logging and monitoring of container based application workloads. This, plus Kubernetes' maintenance of desired state against a declarative model makes the application developer and operator's lives a lot easier.

VMblog visits the DivvyCloud booth during KubeCon 2019 in San Diego.
DivvyCloud software is designed to be agentless and standalone. You can apply it to any computing environment - public cloud or private software-defined infrastructure. The way DivvyCloud interacts with the host environment and Kubernetes is by way of their respective APIs. DivvyCloud continuously interacts with the APIs to gather information about the state of the hosts and the Kubernetes clusters of interest. These hosts can be Google Cloud, AWS, Azure, or a private data center that can expose infrastructure information via an API.
Once DivvyCloud is set up and targeted at the relevant host and Kubernetes clusters, it starts pulling down data about the environments - servers, security groups, load balancers, network-attached stores, S3 buckets, and any resource that is exposed via an API. This information is then unified into a single data model that represents the infrastructure and represents containment holistically.
VMblog visits the Weaveworks booth during KubeCon 2019 in San Diego.
As the inventors of GitOps, Weaveworks demonstrated how GitOps helps a company manage and build applications on Kubernetes. With Git at the center of the operational model, application developers and cluster operators can easily spin up and manage production ready Kubernetes across different environments.
When a cluster configuration is stored in a Git repository, you can then use GitOps to recreate clusters in a predictable way. This brings advantages for building test environments and pipelines, and for reproducing clusters across teams with the same base configuration, or in improving your disaster recovery capability.

Headless is all about facilitating shift-left motion. It enables development teams to get fast feedback on code and increase build efficiency by running atomic tests wherever they're needed, but especially early in the delivery pipeline. It works by leveraging headless Chrome and Firefox browsers on Linux in a Kubernetes, container-based environment. In other words, you can now put the theory behind shift-left testing into practice and test on every commit. Then you pair that with full cross-browser testing at the end of the development process, and you've got a truly holistic testing strategy.
