What's New in Weave Cloud: Deployments

Catch up on the latest feature release for Weave Cloud that focuses on understanding deployments. Use batch mode to make multiple workload deployments or continue using single mode and select individual workloads to deploy to the cluster. With greater control over your deployments, you can more easily manage when and how new workloads land on either your staging or production servers.

What’s New in Weave Cloud: Workloads

Catch up on the latest feature release for Weave Cloud that focuses on understanding workloads. We'll talk about workload views, as well as cluster-wide workload views. At a glance you can locate any service and determine what was deployed when and by whom.

Keeping Helm changes consistent and reliable with Weave Flux

While Helm helps with getting applications running, you need other tooling to keep them up to date when something changes. Check out our alpha release of our Helm integration in Weave Flux. It makes sure your Helm chart releases are kept up to date with what’s in Git. You can try it out using the published repository in Github.

Promote Container Images across Environments with Weave Cloud: Deploy

Weave Cloud Deploy is a Continuous Deployment/Delivery operator for Kubernetes which makes it super easy to automate releases to a cluster - but what about multiple clusters? Weave Cloud Deploy can filter tags - by tagging each image with an environment specific prefix, it’s possible for the same image build to be automatically released to each environment in turn.

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.

Running OpenFaaS on GKE - a step by step guide

In this tutorial you will learn how to set-up OpenFaaS on Kubernetes with monitoring and alerting using Weave Cloud. Using OpenFaaS for serverless avoids being locked-in to one of the cloud vendors. It's easy to run in Kubernetes, letting you mix different services depending on your applications needs.

Flux 1.1 release (deploy all the things!)

The Flux 1.1. release allows to automate updates to DaemonSets, StatefulSets and CronJobs in addition to Deployments. Now you can automate releases of application components in most of your infrastrcture.

A Practical Guide: From Instrumenting Code to Specifying Alerts with the RED Method

This practical guide will help you getting started with monitoring your microservices with Prometheus. We walk through selecting key metrics, instrumentation, setting up alerts and Grafana dashboards.

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.
