Confidentiality in Kubernetes: Clusters vs. Containers

Confidential computing in Kubernetes can be achieved through two primary methods: Confidential Clusters and Confidential Containers. Confidential Clusters utilize confidential VMs to protect the entire cluster, thereby enhancing security for all workloads. On the other hand, Confidential Containers focus on securing individual pods, allowing for selective security enhancements. This differentiation enables organizations to choose appropriate security measures based on the sensitivity and required isolation for various applications, thereby ensuring a flexible and secure Kubernetes environment.

Byte-Sized Brilliance


A Petabyte is a lot of data.

We all know 1 GB equals 1024 MB, but did you know that 1 petabyte (PB) is equivalent to 1024 terabytes (TB)? To illustrate how massive this is, a 1 PB hard drive could store 13.3 years of HD-TV video. Moreover, a 50 PB hard drive could hold the entire written works of mankind, from the dawn of recorded history, in all languages.
