GitOps: High velocity CICD for Kubernetes
This blog post explains techniques for development teams who strive for high velocity continuous delivery using Kubernetes and Docker. When we say “high velocity” we mean that every product team can safely ship updates many times a day — deploy instantly, observe the results in real time, and use this feedback to roll forward or back. The goal is for product teams to use continuous experimentation to improve the customer experience as fast as possible.

GitOps - modern best practices for high velocity application development
A “you build it, you own it” development process requires tools that developers know and understand. “GitOps” is our name for how we describe modern best practices for high velocity application development with cloud native tools. Read this summary post about the GitOps pipeline model, why its beneficial to adopt this methodology and how to get started.

Make Machine Learning on Kubernetes portable and observable with Kubeflow and Weave Cloud
This step by step tutorial shows how to set up Kubeflow, a tool that simplifies set up of a portable Machine Learning stack and Weave Cloud on the Google Cloud Platform. Kubeflow users will then be able to use Weave Cloud to observe and monitor the stack, including metrics for resource management.

Free tier of Weave Cloud on Google Cloud Platform
We've partnered with the Google team to create a simple set-up process that makes it easy to experience the power of Kubernetes (GKE) with Weave Cloud’s management capabilities. If you're exploring Kubernetes and want a completely integrated CI/CD pipeline with observability and monitoring then this gives you everything you need.

Storing Secure Sealed Secrets using GitOps
Sealed Secrets is a Kubernetes Custom Resource Definition Controller which allows you to store even sensitive information (aka secrets) in Git, which previously has not been an option. In addition, you can use Weave Cloud’s Deploy feature in conjunction with Sealed Secrets to create a continuous deployment pipeline where all operations are git based and where the desired state of your apps is declared in your git repos including your secrets.

GitOps Part 3 - Observability
Observability can be seen as part of the Continuous Delivery cycle for Kubernetes. Observed state must be compared with the desired state in Git. The role of a GitOps dashboard is to enable observation and speed up understanding and validation of the system, and suggest mitigating actions. Monitoring alone does not answer all questions: metrics are symptoms but not the disease.

The GitOps Pipeline - Part 2
GitOps relies on your whole system to be expressed declaratively. The GitOps pipeline model places Git at the design centre - everything upstream of deployment is anchored by Git. As a result a developer can update some code in GitHub and release into production as a pull request.

GitOps - Operations by Pull Request
Alexis Richardson is defining “GitOps” as a methodology for developer tooling to drive operations. This post discussed the use of declarative tools and best practices of configurations being code and therefore should be versions controlled.
