Automation is a key component in the management of the entire software release lifecycle. While we know it is critical to the Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery process, it is now becoming equally essential to the underlying infrastructure you depend on. As automation has increased, a new principle for managing infrastructure has emerged to prevent environment drift and ensure your infrastructure is consistently and reliably provisioned.
Serverless computing is the latest, greatest thing in the technology world. Although the serverless concept has been around in one form or another for more than a decade, the introduction of serverless platforms from major cloud providers—starting with AWS Lambda in 2014—has brought serverless mainstream for the first time.
Organizations that deploy SIEM systems know this uphill climb well. Deployment typically takes 18 months, and more than half of these SIEM deployments fail. A major friction point is the big hardware refresh every three to four years, requiring all configurations & customizations be saved. With the refresh, you must update hardware, software, rules, patches, among others, and that usually renders the SIEM unusable. If you magically get the SIEM working on the first cycle, it may fail on the next. Or when you stop pedaling.

Most developers have a very good understanding of Amazon Web Services (AWS), but not too many have taken the plunge into Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and its offerings yet.
Containers are portable assets that let you design and deploy with little overhead from your development team. They take your monolithic code base and turn it into several lightweight modules that you can more easily manage and interconnect without worry of one small module taking out your entire application. This gives you more granular control of your code, but it also means that you have several moving parts as part of your platform.
2017 has been the year for Kubernetes. The orchestrator has become the top orchestration platform, and whenever someone says that they work with Kubernetes, ears start perking up. Docker is still relevant (specifically Swarm mode for orchestration features), but Kubernetes is viewed as a stronger platform.
