A Practical Guide to Choosing between Docker Containers and VMs

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.

Open Source Weave Ignite - The GitOps VM

At last year’s Kubecon in San Diego, Mark Emeis, Weaveworks Engineering Manager and open source contributor gave a talk on how Weave Ignite started, how it works and where you can use it in your development pipelines.

Manage Thousands of Clusters with GitOps and the Cluster API

At Weaveworks we have been living and breathing GitOps for a few years now. This year the Cloud Native community has really started to embrace and adopt GitOps for managing application workloads and services in Kubernetes. But what about managing the actual Kubernetes clusters themselves using GitOps?

How Kubernetes Helps Solve Cloud Complexity

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.

Highlights from KubeCon US and Re:Invent 2019 + Live WKP Demo

Learn about the significant announcements from Weaveworks and AWS at Re:invent as well as Weaveworks and Intuit at Kubecon. We’ll also dive into the live WKP demo complete with video and commentary that we presented at the booth at both shows.

From Data-Centre to the Cloud

Everyone who works in tech is familiar with the benefits of migrating from on-premises data centers to the cloud. When you actually undertake a migration to the cloud, you quickly realize that achieving the advantages that the cloud offers requires some work. The cloud is complex, and navigating the available services, configurations and architectures can be tricky.

MLOps on Kubernetes with Portable Profiles

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.

FIDEKS - GitOps driven “Augmented K8S Platform for Enterprise”

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.

Industry Experts Discuss GitOps and Best Practises for CICD

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.

Why Enterprise is Migrating to the Cloud

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.

GitOps With GitHub Actions and EKS

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.

Introducing Argo Flux - A Weaveworks-Intuit-AWS Collaboration

Today Weaveworks announces a partnership with Intuit to create Argo Flux, a major open source project to drive GitOps application delivery for Kubernetes via an industry-wide community. Argo Flux combines the Argo CD project led by Intuit with the Flux CD project driven by Weaveworks.

Scaling Up Enterprise Kubernetes - Moving Microservices from Pilot to Platform

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.

Machine Learning with GitOps and Progressive Delivery

Machine learning practitioners are already making extensive use of cloud native technology. Predictive, intelligent applications are pushing cloud technology forward and are the principal drivers for companies to make the move to Kubernetes in order to gain a competitive edge.

Implementation Strategies for Multicloud Kubernetes

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.

Requirements for Managing Multicloud Kubernetes

Enterprises are choosing to use multiple cloud providers to run their applications with Kubernetes as the clear leader in multicloud container deployments. But a multicloud Kubernetes configuration has unique requirements.

Going to KubeCon in San Diego? Visit us at Booth S51

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.

Welcome Damani Corbin
