The last 18 months technology teams from investment banks to start-ups in garages, know that Kubernetes is the answer to innovation. The CNCF is expanding rapidly, both sponsors and projects, Kubecon is doubling every six months, and forum and meetup attendance is through the roof. Read Steve George's take on why Kubernetes is everywhere.
Everyone understands how to deploy, monitor, manage and look after Linux distributions. But in the Kubernetes world, nothing is standardized. People do things with custom-built tools. What Weaveworks is doing is providing standardized workflows for how to deploy, configure, monitor, update and look after Kubernetes. Read the transcript of Steve George's interview with Swapnil Bhartiya.
At this year’s KubeCon, CloudNativeCon, EU held in Barcelona, a panel discussion on “GitOps and Best Practices for Cloud Native CICD” was attended by almost 1600 participants! GitOps has crossed the chasm and is now a central part of the Cloud Native lexicon that should be in every developer and cluster operator’s toolkit.
Time for a throwback post to a couple of Tuesdays ago when we were able to say Hola and Buenos Dias to 7,700 attendees at KubeCon EU 2019 in Barcelona! Catch up on talks and keynotes that we delivered and participated in....
Don’t miss our upcoming webinar on an Introduction to Kubernetes Security with Liz Rice, of Aqua and Brice Fernandes, Weaveworks engineer.
If you’re using Visual Studio, now you can visualize and troubleshoot deployments and workloads with the Weave Scope Kubernetes Tools extension from your IDE. This gives you a single workflow without having to context-switch between applications.
Flagger and Weave Cloud now supports the Service Mesh Interface (SMI) API for advanced deployments like canary to Kubernetes. SMI is an open project started in partnership with Microsoft, Buoyant, HashiCorp, Solo, F5, Red Hat, and WeaveWorks.
Flagger automates traffic routing between canary deployments, reducing the risk of app downtime. This allows your team to confidently test and rollout innovative new features more frequently. This tutorial walks you through setting up Istio on a Kubernetes cluster, automating canary and A/B deployments with GitOps pipelines.
Progressive Delivery across clouds and service meshes using Weave Flagger with Service Mesh Hub and SuperGloo
Weave Flagger is now integrated with SuperGloo. That means, you can download Weave Flagger from Solo.io’s Service Mesh Hub, a mesh extension catalogue and instantly have progressive delivery capabilities with the service mesh of your choice.
Starting down the cloud native path can be challenging. You need to learn new technologies like Kubernetes, the ecosystem of tools that support it, and a whole new way of working. Companies who successfully transition will benefit with an increase in velocity, scalability and innovation.
The Weaveworks team is heading to KubeCon Europe 2019 in Barcelona! We’ve got speaking sessions on GitOps, a hands-on workshop, and more. Visit us at Booth S18 to meet the team and see what’s new!
Although many organizations have made the shift to cloud native, many are still wading through the tools, workflows and organizational issues that come with making the change. Learn more in this Podcast on the necessary tools for cloud native.
