Run your apps on Kubernetes one pull request at a time

Building better software faster is the main driver of digital transformation. If you’re not rapidly deploying new features and fixes, your competitors are. Using GitOps to automate continuous application delivery brings a number of advantages to your business. This getting started guide shows how Weave GitOps Core gets you started with only two commands.

Case study: How Deutsche Telekom automates edge infrastructure using GitOps

GitOps has helped to make Deutsche Telekom’s containerized clusters easier to manage and more responsive. They require less human management intervention. While it’s difficult to point to precise cost savings, the team’s ROI can be judged by the scale of its achievements—managing thousands of clusters with a tiny team, and managing cloud development and cloud operations continuously.

Banks must innovate to compete. GitOps can help.

Established banks and neo-banks need to innovate to remain competitive. In our latest white paper, we explain how GitOps can help. Using real-life case studies, we explore how the GitOps operating model can help financial institutions bring new features to market faster, without compromising on all critical hygiene factors such as security, stability and availability.

Why it makes sense to consider managed Kubernetes

Kubernetes is the world’s most popular way to run containerized applications. It is so popular in fact – second only to Linux among open source projects – that rival container orchestration systems have become effectively irrelevant. Kubernetes is popular for numerous reasons, not least its power to scale seamlessly and heal itself automatically. Above all, however, there is its ubiquity. Kubernetes has become the de facto infrastructure for the cloud native world.

Three unmissable events: KubeCon, GitOpsCon and the GitOps One-Stop Shop

Three opportunities to learn more about GitOps in October: GitOpsCon, KubeCon and Weaveworks’ own GitOps One-Stop Shop. No matter if you are a seasoned practitioner or a beginner, we have talks and learnings for all levels.

DX at the Department of Defense: Platform One and GitOps

The Department of Defense’s software development efforts span across government staff and private sector contractors and runs at 100k big. That’s a massive operation to run; one that has to be run in an extremely secure way. And yet, the DoD strives to run it in a modern way too. This post explores how the DoD wants to provide their teams the best developer experience possible without hindering any security measure and have decided to do it through the DoD DevSecOps Initiative and Platform One

The Definitive Guide to Kubernetes in Production

There’s a lot to think about (and yes a lot that can go wrong) when you’re preparing your Kubernetes application for production. This is an introduction to some of the key considerations when preparing to put your Kubernetes application into production.

Give developers the autonomy to choose their own stack

Organizations rely on their development teams to stay competitive in a fast-moving world of cloud-native applications. Yet, these developers are slowed down by operational hassles, red tape, and silos that exist within the organization. The result is that new features are deployed late, and even when deployed, potentially not stable. Highly mature DevOps organizations encountered a solution: empower developers with the autonomy to choose their own tech stack.

Cloud native operations at scale in next generation mobile networks

Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and telecommunications providers (telcos) are seeing a massive shift in technology from legacy backend systems, to modern cloud-native systems that are flexible, and powerful. In our latest white paper we are describing why Weave GitOps is ideally suited to empower telcos and ease this transition.

Moving Beyond the Basics: GitOps on AWS Webinar Series

With September upon us, what better way to start Q4 other than igniting modern operations in your team with our webinars. We’ll be discussing key cloud-native technology topics such as GitOps best practices, EKS, Kubernetes on EC2, and so much more. Our month-long series kicks off this week - a theoretical presentation is being held this Tuesday with a complimentary hands-on 90-min AWS sponsored virtual workshop, taking place Thursday the same week.

Developer self-service and consolidated operations - anywhere

EKS-Anywhere, with its native Flux and eksctl integrations, provides an intuitive path for organizations to dramatically reduce the complexity in deploying and managing their on-premises clusters together with their cloud-hosted infrastructure. Adding Weave GitOps to the mix, end users are now able to operate all clusters centrally from within Git while providing safe and secure autonomy to development teams that can now deploy across their hybrid environments.

What is a hybrid cloud strategy? A primer for the cloud-native age

Thinking about developing a hybrid cloud strategy? In our new primer, we run through the benefits and challenges – and explain why GitOps could help you take the pain out of the whole process.

What is a self-service developer platform and why does it matter?

Implementing a platform model in your organization enables separation of concerns for both Dev & Ops teams. We explore this topic in more detail, including the benefits for each team.

Kubernetes components that make up its architecture

Kubernetes is a complex system because of its many components. Yet, it is imperative for IT & DevOps teams to have a good understanding of the different components & how they work together.
