Modern applications have increasingly leveraged Kubernetes as the "OS of the cloud" because of its ability to abstract the underlying cloud platform and coordinate the activities of multiple docker containers. Kubernetes does indeed radically simplify the deployment and administration of multi-service distributed applications. However, it has a significant learning curve, and maintaining a largescale Kubernetes cluster can be daunting.

Is it getting easier or more difficult to lock down data in today's digital enterprises? Industry leaders have mixed opinions on the state of that challenge. Cloud vendors promise industrial-grade security for backend applica­tions and data, while at the same time the move to cloud increases complexity.

In a Continuous Deployment/Continuous Integration (CD/CI) world, most commentary dances around refer­ences to database changes as being a bottleneck, hard, awkward, or even painful. The reasoning supporting this perspective of suffering seems to arise from a desire for all changes to be fairly isolated matters. After all, a new function within an API, driving a new behavior on a screen, can just slip in, start executing, and life continues.

Data has only become more important as organizations look ahead to what a post-pandemic world could look like. Some of the new approaches being embraced to help drive greater benefit from data are DevOps and DataOps, data quality and governance initiatives, hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, IoT and edge computing, and a range of next-gen databases.

Google recently announced their "Simplicity Sprint" initiative, which focuses on improving efficiencies within their workforce during this uncertain economic environment impacted by the ongoing pandemic, supply chain issues, the war in Ukraine, inflation, and the Great Resignation. However, simplifying and creating a more productive workforce is about more than improving focus, it's about uncovering and solving for increased complexity, brought on by an explosion of data, digital transformation initiatives, and the new reality of hybrid work. It is important for businesses and leaders to understand where these complexities are and what the key drivers are before redefining a new strategy to reduce business complexity.

Establishing agreed upon services levels for database applications is of the utmost importance for assuring that performance meets required criteria. Without pre-determined, negotiated service level agreements in place, database and application performance can become a never-ending game of blind man's bluff, where DBAs blindly and constantly seek an unspoken goal. Instead, active service level management should be the standard.

In science fiction movies, the word "entity" pops up when discussing an as-yet-unseen but at least suspected alien presence, presumed evil (or sometimes evil presence, presumed alien). This entity is not named until half the cast has vanished, then we might hear, "It's Cthulhu's daughter and she's angry!" But not all entities are evil or angry.

Most database administrators know database servers didn't initially come in a cloud or cluster. Once upon a time, DBAs had to reconfigure disk files and handle data manually. Now, with virtualization and the shift toward the cloud, the evolution of database administration yields more opportunities to automate tasks and fewer reasons for DBAs to get their hands dirty.
