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.
Organizations have migrated most or a considerable amount of their workloads to cloud-native container platforms. Public cloud vendors have monetized the popularity of containers and cloud-native computing. Today organizations are moving to the next level of cloud computing: the multicloud.
What does GitOps mean and how can you go about adopting it for your CI/CD needs? How do you empower change agents and champion best practices in your organization? Join Weaveworks and guests for a panel discussion on GitOps.
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.
