What a month it’s been! We’re proud to release Object Storage access management with IAM, as well as Secret Manager, confirming our commitment to cloud security. On the content front, you’ll discover the making of Scaleway’s IAM solution, and dive deeper with us into Kubernetes, with a focus on authentication - security, always! - and take a look forward to our next events: KubeTalks and The Jam 🎉
So, without further ado, let’s jump in to what’s new!
🎯 Product updates
IAM Object Storage Bucket policies
Bucket policies allow you to control your users' and applications' access at the resource level. With this new feature, you can manage access to Object Storage with IAM while precisely defining access rules for each bucket and object using bucket policies More info here!
Secret Manager is out
Secret Manager is a service that allows you to store and manage sensitive information, such as API keys, usernames, passwords, and security certificates in a secure and centralized location. Secret Manager is seamlessly integrated with popular orchestration and automation tools such as Kubernetes, Ansible and Terraform. More info here!
Load Balancers: HTTP redirects and unconditional ACLs
New types of ACLs (Access Control Lists) have been added to Scaleway’s Load Balancer, so that you can redirect client requests to alternative URLs, for example to secure your service by redirecting all HTTP traffic to HTTPS. Check out our reference documentation for a deeper dive into ACLs.
Serverless Functions adds offline testing and new Python API
You can now test serverless functions offline with Node JS, and create and deploy an API on Serverless Functions using Python annotations. You can even add an API Gateway hosted on Serverless Containers to manage routing from a single base URL. More on our official GitHub examples repository.
