The Weaveworks team visited PromCon 2017 in Munich. One of our personal highlights was a deep dive into the past 12 months of Cortex, the basis of our monitoring and analytics capabilities in Weave Cloud.
GitOps relies on your whole system to be expressed declaratively. The GitOps pipeline model places Git at the design centre - everything upstream of deployment is anchored by Git. As a result a developer can update some code in GitHub and release into production as a pull request.
Canonical's conjure-up makes it easy to deploy and operate Kubernetes in production, using a neat, easy-to-use CLI installer. Weave Cloud fills in the gaps missing with a Kubernetes install and provides the tools necessary for a full development lifecycle.
Monitoring distributed applications is best approached using a combination of tools. Luke Marsden describes how Prometheus, openTracing and Weave Cloud visualization cover the bases to establish root cause of problems in distributed applications.
Alexis Richardson is defining “GitOps” as a methodology for developer tooling to drive operations. This post discussed the use of declarative tools and best practices of configurations being code and therefore should be versions controlled.
This tutorial shows you how to deploy and manage Kubernetes with Rancher. You will then use Weave Cloud to complete the development lifecycle, and Deploy, Explore and Monitor your app as it runs in Kubernetes.
Watch Justin Cormack speak about the ins and outs of Linuxkit. Linuxkit provides a Docker-native experience in IT infrastructures that include a variety of OS’s which are not bundled with a native version of Linux...
Securing a network with full end-to-end encryption can be complicated and overlay networks add another level of difficulty. However, with Weave Net we’ve worked very hard to simplify the set-up process and make managing the whole thing as straightforward as possible.
The Weave Online User Group talk given by Carter Morgan defines of what a "production-ready" cloud application looks like.
The world has been patiently waiting for the launch of Stringly™, a platform for distributing highly optimized strings that is sure to disrupt the global string market. The VC checks have cleared and its time to give the people what they...
Today, we’re pleased to announce the release of Weave Net 2.0, which features a peer discovery feature via Weave Cloud, a Docker Swarm plugin, and several changes to Weave Net’s CLI and internals.
The Weave Scope UI provides a neat way of visualizing the real-time state of your application as a graph of interconnected nodes. While good for answering structural questions about your system, this view falls short when trying to...
Luke Marsden explores different architecture models for achieving continuous delivery with Kubernetes. He will be discussing best practices such as establishing a single source of truth and utilizing efficient rollbacks without requiring new code changes to be pushed.
