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

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.

Tools for Automating and Implementing Cloud Native Patterns

Kubernetes is the essential tool for orchestrating cloud native applications. However getting Kubernetes up and running is only a small piece of what you need to start developing applications. There are many tools to choose from within the cloud native ecosystem before the team can start increasing feature velocity and selecting the right ones can be a challenge.

Why developers need a self-service platform – and how to provide one

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.

Application Portability for the Cloud Era

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.

Liquid Metal: multi-cluster Kubernetes on bare metal with microVMs

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.

Managing Kubernetes with GitOps in a multi-cluster, multi-cloud world

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.

Multi-cloud Strategies with Kubernetes and GitOps

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: choosing the right solution for your cluster

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....

Understanding the Kubernetes Event Horizon

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.

Kubernetes at the Edge - Part 1

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”.
