Weaveworks product highlights from GitOps Days 2021

It is hard to chose highlights from GitOps Days 2021 with so many interesting end user and community talks. So this time around we are reflecting on our product highlights including the GitOps Maturity Model, plus demos of new Weave GitOps Core and Weave Kubernetes Platform (WKP).

Unlock Developer Productivity and Operational Efficiency with Weaveworks

At Weaveworks, we help organizations of all sizes on their cloud-native journey by realizing the benefits of GitOps. For anyone implementing GitOps (or considering it), we offer a range of professional services to help you take the next step wherever you are in your GitOps journey.

Improve Kubernetes operational intelligence with multi cluster observability

With Weave Kubernetes Platform (WKP) 2.5 we are adding an enterprise grade observability portal. WKP uses standard Kubernetes tooling, and works across organizations and different environments. Observability is the cornerstone of efficient and secure Day 2 operations, by providing critical data on health and system performance to cluster operators.

Progressive Delivery across multiple clusters & cloud using Weave Kubernetes Platform, Flagger & Linkerd

In this talk Jason Morgan, Buoyant, and Paul Curtis, Weaveworks are introducing the concept of progressive delivery across multiple clusters and environments. With technologies such as Linkerd and Weave Kubernetes Platform, teams can progressively move traffic to Kubernetes - controlled and securely. Best in class GitOps workflows ensure developer friendly operations for Kubernetes while ensuring High Availability and Disaster Recovery across multiple backends.

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.

GitOps across the Edge and all Clouds

In this two-part series we discuss why Kubernetes is vital for telcos to set up operations at the edge, and how GitOps is key to managing and scaling Kubernetes at the edge. Together, they make for a comprehensive strategy for telcos looking to rollout 5G services in the near future.

2020 State of DevOps - GitOps accelerates self service

The 2020 State of DevOps report touches on a central issue for application and platform teams - the idea of introducing self service workflows. High performing teams are keen on realizing the benefits such as a self-service developer experience, continuous platform improvement, and an always-available audit trail. We analyzed how GitOps introduces automation and standardization that lead to a successful platform model.

Kubernetes at the Edge - Part 2

This is part 2 of our blog series on Kubernetes at the edge. In this post we will dig deeper into the top priorities telcos have related to edge computing. We also discuss ways to manage edge infrastructure at scale using Weave Kubernetes Platform and GitOps workflows.

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”.

Multi-Tenancy and App Portability Made Simple with WKP & Team Workspaces

In a recent webinar, Paul Fremantle, VP Product Strategy and Paul Curtis, Solutions Architect walked us through the new features in version 2.4 of Weave Kubernetes Platform.

Meet the CRE Team Blog Series - Richard Case

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.

Kubernetes at Deutsche Telekom - GitOps at the Edge

In this latest episode Vuk Gojnic of Deutsche Telekom and Cornelia Davis of Weaveworks discuss Das Schiff - a Kubernetes as a service platform for vendors and application developers.

Leading Cloud and Telecom providers Invest 36M in Series C to Accelerate GitOps

Alexis Richardson, CEO at Weaveworks shares his insights on our recent funding: "GitOps and containers already matter, but they are critical going forward. Containers will be how we ship and run many applications as well as high productivity applications and GitOps will be how we manage them."

Multicluster GitOps on EKS-D with WKP

This demo shows how easy it is to install Weave Kubernetes Platform and use GitOps to build a continuous deployment pipeline and promote deployments from a development cluster to production. This scenario covers a development cluster based in the cloud on AWS EKS, together with a production deployment on-premise with EKS-D.

Weaveworks Brings GitOps to Amazon EKS Distro

AWS just added a whole line of business: enterprise software. AWS has spent 14 years focusing on cloud services. But customers now want on-premise and multi-cloud software solutions that are backed by the hyper-scale providers themselves. These customers want to migrate as much IT as possible to efficient, automated cloud platforms wherever those workloads need to be. Find out how WKP can help.

Weave Kubernetes Platform Unlocks Cross Team Collaboration with Workspaces

We’re pleased to announce the 2.4 version of Weave Kubernetes Platform (WKP) that includes a number of significant features including: Team Workspaces, RBAC for workspace members, the ability to add GitOps to any Kubernetes cluster and support for Flux 2.0.

Practical Strategies for Adopting GitOps for Self-service Developer Platforms

DevOps promises faster engineering teams by managing both infrastructure and code, but the reality for most who adopt K8s is that platform teams need to keep control over infrastructure. How do you bridge the gap between these teams without compromising on velocity or security?

Migrating Legacy Apps to Kubernetes with GitOps

For many organizations, moving legacy applications to Kubernetes holds great promise including reduced IT overhead, and accelerated development times. But in reality, migration projects can be delayed with service interruptions while the entire team transitions.

Meet the CRE Team Blog Series - Paul Carlton

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.

Living on the Edge - How Screenly Monitors Edge IoT Devices with Prometheus

In this guest post Viktor Petersson discusses how Screenly uses Prometheus to monitor their infrastructure. Over the years, they found Prometheus to be extremely versatile, and then expanded Prometheus to include business intelligence metrics.
