We're happy to announce the first release candidate of Flagger 1.0! Version 1.0 comes with the promise of a stable API. The canary resource is no longer alpha and the API has been extended to facilitate integrations with external monitoring systems and alerting platforms.
In part 1 we broke down the key components of the move that need consideration. We also linked to described all of the public cloud cost calculators to help you estimate expenses. In this post, we’ll take a closer look and discuss why you need to distinguish between CapEx and OpEx expenses.
Migrating an on-premises data center to cloud-based infrastructure is trickier than it seems. This post explains what the most common pitfalls are that can get in the way of achieving a successful cloud migration.
We look at the 2019 State of DevOps report which surveyed more than 3,000 DevOps practitioners across different industries. The focus of the report was on how an improvement in security measures can assist release velocity.
InfoQ, the magazine for professional software development, and Christian Melendez recently conducted an interview with the Weaveworks team on the WKSctl project. WKSctl is an open source tool that can be used to create and manage developer and production ready Kubernetes clusters from git.
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 for managing multiple clusters.
Docker, Kubernetes, and containers are indeed powerful technologies that can bring many benefits to a business. But they are not necessarily the right choice for every workload. In some cases, you’re better off sticking with simple virtual machines.
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.
This post introduces a new feature called Profiles, which allows you to create a specific Kubernetes application platform to meet your business needs. We show how you can enable machine learning operations or MLOps with specific Profiles for two different types of Kubernetes instances - EKS and Kubernetes with Firekube.
Rajarajan Pudupatti, Cloud Platforms Architect at Fidelity Investments and Alexis Richardson, CEO of Weaveworks delivered a practical use case and explanation on how Kubernetes and GitOps was successfully implemented into a large financial organization.
Watch a recap of a panel discussion between Weaveworks Founder, Alexis, and three expert industry practitioners where they discuss using GitOps and how it fits within their CICD practises today.
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.
Curious about GitHub Actions and GitOps? This step by step tutorial shows you how to use GitOps and GitHub Actions for application deployments to EKS. Learn how to set up an EKS cluster with eksctl, GitHub Actions to push the image to ECR, then deploy and commit that image tag back to GitHub with Weave Flux.
Enterprises are embracing the principle of Kubernetes, but many have not deployed it at scale. Only 10% of enterprise respondents to GigaOm research, carried out earlier this year, use the orchestrator in production and have implemented it as a platform throughout their organization.
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.
With Kubecon only three week’s away, we’re getting excited for this year’s show. As founding members of the CNCF as well as top Kubernetes contributors, we have a full line up of informative talks, a sold-out hands-on workshop, and great booth demos.
