In this tutorial, Stefan Prodan discusses how to manage deployments with GitOps using Flux with Kustomize on a multi-tenant cluster. It also includes steps on how to implement Flagger to automate progressive delivery strategies like canaries, and A/B deployments through namespaces.

Weaveworks and Solo.io Enable Progressive Delivery Through Service Mesh

You don’t want to miss the upcoming webinar by Solo.io (in partnership with Weaveworks) on Weave Flagger in Solo.io’s Service Mesh Hub! Join us Tuesday, July 30, 2019, 10:00 am Pacific with Christian Posta (Solo.io) and Stefan Prodan (Weaveworks).

Automate Progressive Deployments to Kubernetes with Flagger and Linkerd

Use Flagger with Linkerd to automate progressive deployments like canaries and other advanced deployment strategies for your Kubernetes workloads. Linkerd implements the Service Mesh Interface (SMI) Traffic Split API. This allows Flagger to control the traffic between two versions of the same application.

Fire Up Your VMs with Weave Ignite

For the last few months we have been playing with a little side project called “Ignite”. Ignite is a GitOps-managed Virtual Machine (VM) with a container UX. A “container VM” that is both secure and lightning fast.
