Automating the Operation of Stateful Apps in Kubernetes with GitOps

Scale and velocity are the main drivers behind Kubernetes adoption. Kubernetes allows companies today to run thousands of cloud native applications, including many stateful applications like databases. Find out how GitOps and Portworx helps manage your stateful applications.

Introduction to EKS + EKSctl with Michael Hausenblas and Ilya Dmitrichenko

More than just a CLI for cluster creation, EKSctl can manage and configure an entire cluster with GitOps. Anyone using Kubernetes in production knows the importance of configuration management.

Flux Joins the CNCF Sandbox

Flux, the Kubernetes GitOps operator, has been accepted as a Sandbox project by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Built to drive Weaveworks’ own deployment pipeline, Flux operates by updating Kubernetes manifests, applying them, and then committing the change to git.

Production Ready Kubernetes in a Day

Join us September 5th in London for a practical 1-day workshop and accelerate your journey to production ready Kubernetes by learning the practical techniques for reliably operating your software lifecycle using the GitOps pattern.

Introduction to Service Meshes on Kubernetes and Progressive Delivery

Stefan Prodan recently delivered a talk on what a service mesh is, which ones are available and how they differ. He then described how to use a service mesh for Progressive Delivery and other advanced deployments to Kubernetes.

What’s new in EKSctl?

A recent blog post by Bob Wise, General Manager of EKS at AWS stated that EKSctl is now “the official CLI for EKS”. Let’s continue that excitement by bringing you up to speed on the many new features and improvements that the EKSctl development team and community contributors have recently released.

Developing Applications on Multi-tenant Clusters with GitOps

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.

Automated Operation of Stateful Apps in Kubernetes with GitOps

Join our upcoming webinar in collaboration with Portworx to learn how software teams can manage stateful applications and their many operations tasks more efficiently, predictably, and reliably.

Why a Cloud Native Application Platform

The last 18 months technology teams from investment banks to start-ups in garages, know that Kubernetes is the answer to innovation. The CNCF is expanding rapidly, both sponsors and projects, Kubecon is doubling every six months, and forum and meetup attendance is through the roof. Read Steve George's take on why Kubernetes is everywhere.

Moving Towards a Standard Operating Model for Kubernetes

Everyone understands how to deploy, monitor, manage and look after Linux distributions. But in the Kubernetes world, nothing is standardized. People do things with custom-built tools. What Weaveworks is doing is providing standardized workflows for how to deploy, configure, monitor, update and look after Kubernetes. Read the transcript of Steve George's interview with Swapnil Bhartiya.

Application Checklist for Kubernetes

Find out what the best practices are for running applications in Kubernetes with this convenient application checklist.

Cluster Ready Checklist for Kubernetes

How do you know when you’re ready to run your Kubernetes cluster in production? In this blog series, we define Production Ready checklists for your cluster and applications.

GigaOm - Voices in DevOps with Steve George

Read a recap of Steve George’s appearance on the podcast, GigaOm - Voices in DevOps and learn how cloud native can help your team ship faster and more reliably.

Introduction to Kubernetes Security

Weaveworks and Aqua recently held a popular webinar on Kubernetes and Security. Liz Rice of Aqua described how to lock down a cluster and Brice Fernandes of Weaveworks examined how to secure your operations workflows to Kubernetes.

Automate Kubernetes with GitOps

The goal of GitOps is to increase the velocity of your team’s output. It automates much of the process of Kubernetes releases and deployments and avoids the use of custom scripts.
