This Week in News: Microservices, Kubernetes Data, and SXSW

Hello, welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we review the week’s hottest news in cloud-native technologies/at-scale application development and look ahead to topics we expect will gain more attention in coming weeks.

This week, we’re joined by TNS correspondent Michelle Gienow, TNS research director Lawrence Hecht and TNS founder Alex Williams. This week, Gienow published the second article in our new weekly feature series focused on microservices. We’ll be covering cloud-native microservices from start to finish for the next few months — starting with some of the things that organizations should consider when they’re weighing the decision to move to a microservices architecture. For this episode, Michelle shares some of what she learned so far about why companies are adopting microservices architectures.

Hecht writes a weekly data column for us, which appears on Saturdays, and, in shorter form, in our Friday newsletter. Last Saturday, he pulled data from CNCF’s recent Kubernetes community survey and asked whether cloud customers are opting for the big cloud providers’ new Kubernetes-as-a-Service offerings.

Also, this week, a bonus segment: TNS founder Alex Williams has called in from SXSW in Austin this week where he’s had a lot of great conversations with companies like Capital One and Atlassian on topics including values, data streaming and analytics, and application architectures. He shares some of his takeaways from that event.

TNS editorial director Libby Clark hosted this episode, along with TNS managing editor Joab Jackson.
