New Release: The Gorilla Guide to…® Kubernetes Native Application Mobility Express Edition

For decades, portability has been a key trait companies have desired for their applications. You might remember, for instance, that the slogan “write once, run anywhere” formed the marketing push for the Java language in the early days of web browsers. But modern applications juggle many elements besides the programming code (Figure 1).

Figure 1: Components of modern applications

In The Gorilla Guide to…® Kubernetes Native Application Mobility Express Edition, author Dan Sullivan applies the term mobility to these modern portability concerns. He points out that containerization and the cloud create conditions where mobility is even more important than before. The book looks at technical and business reasons for making mobility a priority: disaster recovery, load balancing, support for test environments, and more.

Sullivan lays out in detail the elements of a modern application that might be hard to reproduce in a new environment: namespaces, cloud regions, and so forth. He defines the terms commonly used in this space and the challenges that make mobility difficult. Finally, he introduces Kasten K10, which simplifies the preservation of mobility during activities such as backups and migration.
