In a previous post we introduced the combination of Flux and the Cluster API to enable cluster management with GitOps. But what happens if you are building a large multi-cloud and/or hybrid platform?This post introduces an advanced deployment pattern that we call “master-of-masters” or MoM.
Deploying to the cloud requires an understanding of the implications of cloud native. Even though Kubernetes and other cloud native technologies come with a learning curve, in the long run they reduce complexity not add to it. Learn the key Kubernetes concepts you need to know to get there.
If you're considering moving your IT operations to the public cloud, you should consider the basic issues, the costs, and the benefits. This post talks about cost savings and associated benefits of moving a typical in-house IT operation to the cloud.
Organizations that find themselves in this new world of multiple-container platforms face a number of new challenges because of the inherent complexity of multicloud. Going the multicloud way requires a deliberate implementation strategy. Find out more in the blog.
The cloud is not just about purchasing computing power; it is a way of facilitating new, and more efficient business models. Often the first move is to create a "hybrid cloud" approach. Although this allows for organizations to have greater flexibility and more deployment options, it can be more expensive to maintain than multicloud.
Weave Firekube is a new open source Kubernetes distribution that enables secure clouds anywhere. Firekube uses Weave Ignite to run Kubernetes on Firecracker. It pulls everything from Git and boots up a secure cluster in 2.5 minutes.
Learn how you can use Kubernetes built-in liveness and readiness probes to manage and control the health of your applications.
Keep your workloads running efficiently in Kubernetes by correctly setting the request and limits on your deployments as well as the appropriate Quality of Service classes for your pods.
Pods are fundamental to Kubernetes orchestration. Understanding how to design and optimize pods for Kubernetes is the first step towards creating a secure, stable, and efficient service in Kubernetes.
In this instalment of Kubernetes networking on AWS, Mark Ramm, goes through the pros, cons and tradeoffs between VPC native networking vs implementing the VPC CNI plugin.
In this three part series, we deep dive into the Kubernetes Pod networking options on Amazon, and provide some guidance on the trade-offs involved in selecting a particular Kubernetes Network technology for your cluster on Amazon.
The OpenFaaS team recently released a Kubernetes operator for OpenFaaS. The OpenFaaS Operator can be run with OpenFaaS on any Kubernetes service, in this post I will show you step-by-step instructions on how to deploy to Amazon's managed Kubernetes service (EKS).
