How To Secure Everything Without Making Everyone Suffer
What makes a system secure? How do we secure everything, no matter whether it’s running inside Kubernetes clusters, Cloud providers like AWS, Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), or anything else?Continue reading
Cloud Custodian – Policies? Resource Management? Something Else?
Cloud Custodian is yet another tool that helps us audit, manage, and apply policies to cloud resources, but with a twist. Is it any good? Should you use it? Who should use it?Continue reading
How To Shift-Left Stateless Kubernetes Applications Management
How can we enable application developers to be self-sufficient instead of opening JIRA tickets requesting deployment of their apps to Kubernetes, creation of databases, clusters, etc.? In this video, I’m trying to answer that question through an example of a stateful application running in Kubernetes and connected to a database. To accomplish that, I’ll use Crossplane, SchemaHero, Okteto, and a bit of Bash scripting.Continue reading
Cloud And Kubernetes Cost Reporting With CAST AI
Exploring CAST AI as a way to combine scaling with cost reporting of cloud and Kubernetes resources.Continue reading
Cloud-Native Applications And NOT Infrastructure Code – Klotho
Wouldn’t it be great if we would not need to define infrastructure but let applications themselves figure out what to do, where to run, and how to do all that? Klotho enables us to write Cloud-native microservices and applications and auto-magically get infrastructure and the code that ties it all together.Continue reading
Running AWS Services In A Laptop Using LocalStack
LocalStack is a fully functional mock of AWS services running locally on your computer. We can use it to develop and test cloud and serverless apps offline. It can run through the CLI, in a Docker container, or in a Kubernetes cluster. We can use it to create mocks of S3 buckets, Lambda functions, RDS databases, ECR repositories, and more.Continue reading
How To Shift Left Infrastructure Management Using Crossplane Composites
The job of ops should not be to create and manage infrastructure for other teams. Instead, it should be to enable other teams to manage their own infra. It should be about creating tools and platforms that are opinionated, yet provide sufficient freedom for the teams, no matter whether they are using AWS, Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), or any other provider.Continue reading
EKS Fargate vs. GKE Autopilot – Fully Managed Kubernetes Clusters Compared
AWS Fargate is the first fully managed Kubernetes service. Google Cloud Autopilot followed. Let’s compare EKS Fargate vs. GKE Autopilot and see what the differences are. Which one is better? Which one should we use?
Google Cloud vs AWS vs Azure vs Linode – Speed Comparison
Which cloud provider is the fastest? Is it Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Linode?
