KubeVirt is a Kubernetes-native virtualization solution that allows users to run virtual machines (VMs) and containers side-by-side on the same platform. Kubernetes has become the standard for managing containerized applications in the ever-changing field of cloud computing and containerization. Containers have revolutionized the packaging, distribution, and deployment of applications, providing unmatched flexibility and scalability. However, certain tasks cannot be confined to containers alone, requiring the use of virtual machines (VMs). To address this, the KubeVirt project has been created to seamlessly integrate VMs with containers, allowing Kubernetes to effectively handle both technologies.
Proxmox Backup Server is a robust backup software solution designed for enterprise use. It enables you to securely back up virtual machines, containers, and physical hosts. This software is highly optimized for the Proxmox Virtual Environment platform and offers convenient web-based management, allowing you to easily handle data backups across remote sites.
VMware Fault Tolerance (VMware FT) is one of vSphere clustering features that can protect services with zero downtime but not useful for any services or any virtual machine.
This post is not about VMware Fault Tolerance capabilities and I’ll reviewing use cases. At end of this post, you’ll find why this feature is not suitable for each service or environment. Also find that when you should use it and when you should not use that.
Stupid security guys! They only know concepts and has no technical knowledge about their technical field. They just read some documentations. But most important steps of having security is applying configuration and reviewing current configuration. Also, they have no idea that what are they doing on servers and client. CIS benchmarks are reference for hardening most popular operating systems, but you cannot apply the desired configurations in large scale of servers or clients without using some tools.
