HashiCorp Nomad and Legacy Applications
It seems that containers are everywhere. They should be. They make it easier to deploy applications into environments for development, testing and in production. However, what about when containers just don’t work? To take full advantage of the container orchestration platforms currently available there has to be considerable changes made to the applications and the deployment processes. For green field applications this is not a problem as they are usually built with containers in mind. What do you do if you want to have the advantages of a container-like scheduler but for your legacy applications? Enter HashiCorp Nomad.

Introducing Heron on Nomad
Apache Heron is a stream processing engine (SPE) open sourced by Twitter in 2016 and now currently in incubation under the auspices of the Apache Software Foundation. At Twitter, Heron was built to provide multi-tenancy, efficient resource usage, support for a variety of programming languages and APIs, operational simplicity at massive scale, and high productivity for developers building both real-time and batch services. Today, Heron serves the lion’s share of Twitter’s massive real-time processing needs, is used by numerous large enterprises, and has a thriving open source community.
As a core contributor to Heron, I’m excited to announce that Nomad is being added as a fully supported scheduler for Heron.

Leveling Up the Terraform Provider for Nomad
At HashiCorp, we’ve always said that all of our projects should work well separately, but better together. This is certainly true for HashiCorp Terraform and HashiCorp Nomad. Terraform provisions the infrastructure and Nomad schedules and deploys applications. When deploying Nomad, you may do this however you like, and the Nomad team strives to make that easy to do, but if you opt to use Terraform to manage the servers that Nomad runs on, we believe that should offer a first-class experience.

A brief history on how to secure your workflow for job deployments in Nomad
A lot of HashiCorp users and employees love our whole suite of products, but like with your grandmother, it’s almost impossible not to have one slight predilection over one of our creations (says the favorite grandchild). In my case, my predilection for HashiCorp Nomad is quite evident, to the point of being a running joke among the European team. I think not a single customer meeting goes by without someone saying "yeah, that’s Nomad, Nico’s favorite product…".

Preparing for GDPR Compliance with HashiCorp Vault
Here at HashiCorp, we've been releasing features and constructing a roadmap for Vault that specifically assists in helping your organization comply with GDPR, or the General Data Protection Regulation standard that is set to go live in May 25, 2018. We're excited to share and explain how some of these Vault features can be used to comply with specific GDPR articles.
We specifically developed Vault to manage, store, and protect sensitive information in a way that reduces secret sprawl but also enables global organizations to operate at a very large scale. In a world where secrets are spread in a global manner, this use case is critical especially if you are spanning your infrastructure across multiple public and private clouds. In the context of GDPR, this use case becomes extremely critical, as it requires us to be more sensitive to where our data is moving or sitting at any given time physically and forces us to put our best effort to protect the data sovereignty of our sensitive information.
