We Empower Kubernetes Developers
We offer public training and private sessions, as well as other useful resources to help you get started with Kubernetes or to transition your team from development to production. We are a technology partner with all major cloud providers and we also understand on premise and hybrid cloud requirements.Contact Us for Training Dates
Deploying and Operating Kubernetes in Production
At Weaveworks we give developers and DevOps teams the tools, skills and knowledge they need to successfully develop and operate cloud native applications. Our team are experts in Docker, Kubernetes, microservices and distributed systems. Our training consists of two steps. First we will help your team pilot Kubernetes to enable and increase deployments, so that it can become a significant operational platform. Second, our hands-on workshops are designed to help technical teams quickly understand orchestration and learn the best practice approach to develop, deploy and manage applications powered by Kubernetes.
Kubernetes Tutorials: Hands on Workshops
Get industry-leading instruction in a professional setting from a live senior instructor. All of our instructors are engineers first and have or are contributing to Kubernetes as a project and are familiar with operating a production grade cloud native stack.
Monitoring Kubernetes with Prometheus
Monitoring containerized apps creates a whole new set of challenges that traditional monitoring systems struggle with. In this hands-on training, we will guide you through using the open source Prometheus monitoring toolkit and how to integrate it with Kubernetes on an example application.
Production-Ready Kubernetes and GitOps
This introductory course starts from the key concepts underlying Kubernetes and how it fits within a contemporary approach. During the hands-on section we will deploy an example service using a declarative approach (GitOps) to manage it. We then prepare the workload for production use by setting up instrumenting and alerting with Prometheus.
Our instructors will come to you for a private onsite training on Kubernetes or related cloud native technologies such as Prometheus, Helm or similar. This is the most flexible option and training can also be tailored to your team’s needs.
We’re seeing explosive growth in enterprise Kubernetes adoption, but there’s a knowledge gap between adoption and implementation. With its new offering Weaveworks is packaging its products and services to help enterprises accelerate their moves to cloud natives tools, methods and processes.
What’s covered in the Weave Kubernetes Platform?
The platform includes support for installing Kubernetes and operating a cluster as well as Kubernetes components and services such as networking, storage, ingress, secrets and templating. See the WKP datasheet for additional details.
What makes it different?
Weaveworks experience and skillset resides in operating Kubernetes as a production system. From those experiences a set of workflows to install, upgrade and run Kubernetes in production environments, known as GitOps was developed. Combine Weave Kubernetes Platform with our application management solution, Weave Cloud to get a complete system for developing and running Kubernetes-based workloads.
What Cloud platforms does Weave Kubernetes Platform support?
Run open source Kubernetes on AWS and GCP or use WKP with managed Kubernetes like GKE and EKS. WKP also supports customers who are using other public clouds such as Digital Ocean but its installation and setup is unvalidated.
How can you help with Amazon’s EKS or Google’s GKE?
Managed Kubernetes from Amazon and Google remove the operations drag of building and updating core Kubernetes. Teams who need to run Kubernetes or who need to provide application infrastructure - the Weaveworks expert team can provide advice on specifying the right policies troubleshooting service problems.
How do you support on-premises installs of Kubernetes?
For enterprise customers who need to deploy Kubernetes in their datacenter, WKP installs pure upstream Kubernetes on Ubuntu or RedHat.
How is pure, open source Kubernetes supported?
Kubernetes and the Cloud Native landscape are moving very fast with a constant flow of new features. Weaveworks feels that the best version of Kubernetes to use is the pure upstream version, where the last two major release streams (e.g. 10.x and 9.x) are supported ensuring customers can progressively upgrade and quickly take advantage of new features.
Will WKP support integrating Kubernetes with other vendors?
Many customers have existing investments across networking, storage and other enterprise technology. Weaveworks works with customers to integrate Kubernetes with their existing systems. Where an issue is caused by an interaction between Kubernetes and another vendors system, as long as both elements are under an appropriate support contract, Weaveworks will work with both the customer and the third-party vendor to resolve.
How does it work if I have both a development and production cluster?
As long as the development cluster size is below 8 nodes then the price is 12,000 USD. The price for a production system is 3,000 USD per node, depending on the size of the cluster.
Will you install Kubernetes for customers?
Weaveworks can design, install and set-up Kubernetes clusters’ for customers as professional services engagements. Combined with Kubernetes quickstart and training programs, customers can fast track and accelerate the cloud native journey.
