In this white paper, we explain what a self-service developer platform is, how it can benefit your business and explore GitOps as the best way to deliver it.
Each dev team has different needs and wants the autonomy to choose their own cloud provider or preferred cloud services. It becomes the job of the platform team to ensure that any required cloud service is supported by the organization's technology stack. In this era of distributed cloud applications, application portability has become even more important.
Kured, the Kubernetes Reboot Deamon helps perform safe automatic node reboots, when indicated by the package management of the underlying OS. We often find kured running behind the scenes and over the recent months, the community stepped up and moved kured to a fully packed 1.7.0 release. Read up on the latest features and join the community.
KubeCon EU 2021 was a blast! It was also A LOT. Good news: there was a wide variance of topics discussed and fascinating sessions. Bad news: there are only 24 hours in a day to watch them. More good news; we take the time to spotlight sessions our team were a part of, as well as highlight some more interesting sessions.
Das Schiff platform from Deutsche Telekom is an example of the benefits of a GitOps-driven, fleet-managed platform for telecom operators. A key enabler for rolling out Das Schiff to the edge is the ability to run Kubernetes on microVMs. This blog describes the core technology, jointly developed by Deutsche Telekom, Weaveworks and AWS, which significantly improves the efficiency of deployment of Kubernetes across bare-metal pools.
If you’re deploying anything at scale, you’re going to need some level of automation in order to achieve consistency. By using a GitOps workflow to manage your Kubernetes clusters, you can solve some of the most common challenges associated with multi-cluster environments.
Adopting a multi-cloud strategy has many advantages, however it also has its own set of challenges and obstacles. We delve into the benefits of multi-cloud and how to overcome its challenges using Kubernetes and GitOps.
Local storage is almost always the best answer if you are running stateful applications in your Kubernetes cluster. But with so many local storage options out there, choosing the right one is hardly straightforward. For this reason, we’ve just finished putting some of the leading solutions to the test....
Have you ever listened to what your cluster is telling you? Every part of Kubernetes sends out Events, which are small messages telling you what is happening inside that component. In this post we look at some data that 'kubectl describe' displays, for diagnosing specific problems.
This is the first in a two-part series on Kubernetes at the edge. We discuss the topic from the perspective of telecommunication organizations (telcos) and how they will adopt cloud native technologies like Kubernetes and use GitOps to implement and manage what’s been called, “The Third Act of the Internet”.
Organizations deploying Kubernetes on a massive scale across multiple backends require an automated, secure and consistent approach for managing clusters – one that they can use efficiently no matter how many clusters or clouds or other configurations are included.
This week we introduce Richard Case, a customer reliability engineer here at Weaveworks. Richard spends the majority of his time on kconnect, an open source project created by Fidelity and is also involved in Cluster API projects.
This is the third post in our blog series about the Weaveworks CRE team. As experts in both cloud native technologies and the GitOps methodology, they help our customers deliver solid Kubernetes solutions and platforms. This week we introduce you to Sebastian Bernheim.
As most organizations wind down for the festive season, Weaveworks are ramping up efforts to hire more people across our engineering, product, customer success, sales and marketing teams. Discover open positions to transform your career in the cloud native ecosystem.
It's that time of year again when two of our favourite events commence - KubeCon NA and AWS reinvent. This year however, they've gone virtual, giving many more people worldwide a chance to participate. See what we're up to at both events, and please stop by and say hello to us in our virtual booths!
By leveraging GitOps and a modern cloud-native-friendly data platform, it has become possible for even the smallest organizations to have real and reliable disaster recovery plans.
This is the second post in our blog series about the Weaveworks CRE team. As experts in both cloud native technologies and the GitOps methodology, they work as embedded team members in tandem with your team to deliver solid Kubernetes solutions and platforms. This week we introduce you to Paul Carlton.
