MongoDB Setup on Kubernetes using MongoDB Operator

MongoDB is a popular NoSQL database that supports large as well as small size of datasets. Just like any other database standalone setup, MongoDB is straightforward but we have to make a replicated or shared cluster of MongoDB, and there we have certain complications. Especially if we are doing these kinds of setups in orchestration tools like Kubernetes.

There is a lot of complexity in setting up MongoDB on Kubernetes that people(including me) have faced for a long time which I would like to highlight:-

  • Standalone setup is pretty straightforward but for replicated and sharded clusters additional mongo configurations are required.
  • In the replicated scenario, separate configurations need to be managed for the leader and follower.
  • Monitoring and access management of MongoDB inside Kubernetes is a little tricky part to handle.

Top DevSecOps Tools in 2022!

With increasing cyber threats, security has become a major bottleneck in rapid product delivery for enterprises today. Here’s how these top DevSecOps tools can help. Take a look!

DevSecOps is a term that’s short for Development, Security, and Operations. No doubt, this term has become the latest buzzword in the market nowadays. The “DevSecOps” methodology is based and built on the same principles as DevOps, but it is slightly different from it. Here’s how!

The DevSecOps approach incorporates security at all stages of the development workflow. In simpler words, DevSecOps is like DevOps plus security. When we talk about security in DevSecOps, it specifically refers to pipeline security, secure development lifecycle and embedding security policies to mitigate emerging risks, cyber threats & malicious attacks.

There is a wide variety of DevSecOps tools and software to encompass enterprise-grade DevSecOps practices in the software development lifecycle. Here, in this blog, we’ve picked some of the best DevSecOps tools available in the market today.

Let’s take a look at these top DevSecOps tools in 2022, NOW!

DevSecOps Best Practices for Secured & Quick Delivery!

DevSecOps is the integration of security into the DevOps lifecycle and its practices.

By 2023, more than 70% of enterprise DevSecOps initiatives will incorporate automated security vulnerability and configuration scanning for open-source components and commercial packages, which is a significant increase from fewer than 30% in 2019, says Gartner.

This statement emphasizes a few critical security DevOps practices for ensuring secure and bug-free product delivery. Let’s take a closer look at some of the relevant approaches for embedding security checks in the DevOps lifecycle.

DevSecOps helps enterprises around the world to embrace the latest DevSecOps best practices for secure and expedited product delivery.

-Cost reduction: By detecting and fixing security issues early on during the development phases, the costs involved get reduced.
-Speed of delivery: The speed of product delivery increases as security bottlenecks are minimised or eliminated.

Discussed here are the latest DevSecOps practices for ensuring the compliant and secured release of applications.
