Cloud native Trends 2023 - New year, New hopes
Featuring cloud trends 2023 and awesome work by cloud native community.
Happy new year, everyone! I know 2023 is a new year, and we are trying to refresh our thoughts, set new short-term goals, and build new good habits to be a better version of ourselves.
Last year I wrote a blog on Cloud-native trends in 2022 where almost all the predictions/trends and tools were spot on and highlighted throughout the year. I want to share what I think will be the talk of the town this year in this post, with some other content shared within the community.
The WASM adoption will continue to see a huge rise with the increase in production use cases and the cloud native space. Projects like Runwasi and Docker also back it up by making it easier to run WASM modules will lead to an increase in adoption. Companies to look out for Suborbital, Fermyon, and Cosmonic.
eBPF has been there and will see more adoption and use cases in the network, observability, and security space. The sidecar less service mesh and the new generation of observability tooling that takes the power of eBPF to provide better results is something we will see more and more. We might see more of it used in troubleshooting to get the right metrics and intelligently act on that.
Tools to keep an eye - tracee, pixie, Falco, aya, Katran, sidecarless service mesh, Cilium, Pyroscope, parca., ebpf for windows There are many great resources, including Cilium labs, solo courses and workshops, and ebpf.io.
Companies like Solo, Isovalent, and Groundcover will continue to innovate in this space.
Cloud cost is something people will worry about more and more trying to reduce it and go either multi-cloud or optimizations in their existing infra and services. Within Kubernetes, you will see more optimizations in sizing the workloads right and monitoring the costs per namespace to see what goes into running the application and other maintenance costs.
Tools to keep an eye - Opencost, OptScale, and koku, and also keep following FinOps Foundation.
Other notable trends:
MLOps is picking up the pace, and we will see more streamlined tools like the CNCF ecosystem.
Supply chain security continues to grow, and the Open SSF foundation will get more eyes.
Application deployment to Kubernetes: This area is getting a lot of attention, and many players are solving this problem in their own way.
Keep an eye on Acorn, Waypoint, Dagger, and even Namespace labs as application development platforms.
Observability will be even more important from a cost and security standpoint.
Kubernetes will continue to see its adoption, and people will be working more on managed solutions like simpler PAAS solutions and products built on top of Kubernetes to leverage complete Kubernetes power.
Cloud native testing will become part of the development workflow with end-to-end application and performance testing.
More AI tools are coming out since the ChatGPT outburst, and many AI tooling will emerge in 2023 trying to simplify Kubernetes challenges.
Kubernetes troubleshooting space will get even more advancements, and more companies will get in this space.
We will see more focus on container-optimized OS, and the adoption of Talos, Wolfi, and flatcar will rise.
There are a lot more items that I can put here, but for now, these will be the big main trends for 2023, and we will cover the rest as the year progresses and with the new upcoming tooling.
Now let’s get to what’s new I have been doing.
I will be in Florida next month for Civo Navigate giving a Keynote.
