After engaging with my Kubernetes lab tasks few days earlier, it was equally exciting to taste the flavour of managing cloud clustering through Tanzu Mission Control.
Along with Kubernetes cluster lifecycle management, it also helps in performing health checks, policies management while providing user access, and conformance testing.
The best part was monitoring environment on dashboard – since I was able to co-relate it to my earlier projects on dashboard and Alarm/Events reporting solutions through ITSM ARS suite, generic CEM dashboards etc.
Looking forward for more such opensource platforms wherein professionals like me can maintain “pace” with ever growing customers’ requirement, in digital transition and transformation engagements globally.
Please feel free to connect with me, if you find common interests in variety of cloud solutioning and CI / CD concepts around DevOps.
By the way, A known professional friend of mine had asked me sometime recently: “Is it essential to keep updating the Firmware every time we go for Software Installations or Upgrades??“
And so, here’s my reply:
Every software upgrade on any device is versioned for better performance for their future releases. Likewise, every device software upgrade is dependent on the underlying firmware update (upgrade).
Recommended firmware update improves the datacenter device’s functionality. Along with device’s performance, it improves the functions of processors in it.
If we do not keep the recommended firmware updates in parallel with software installed above the device – neither the promised features would work to the satisfaction nor the PD/U would support in case of failed scenarios in that release.
Anyone having other views – Please feel free to comment!
