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
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
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?
Which cloud provider is the fastest? Is it Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Linode?
A review of eksctl and step by step guide how to create and manage AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) clusters.
Amazon Lightsail containers are all about simplicity.
Amazon now supports container images as the deployment package format for its AWS Lambda Functions as a Service (FaaS) offering. Containers are finally replacing ZIP files.
The setup of a development environment tends to be complicated, time-consuming, and expensive.
Gitpod changes the way we think about development environments. It gives us an IDE to write code, all the tools we need to compile our applications, run tests, and do whatever else we might be doing. It gives us the infrastructure we need. It allows us to onboard anyone into any project instantly.
This text was taken from the book and a Udemy course The DevOps Toolkit: Catalog, Patterns, And Blueprints
Should we use managed Containers as a Service (CaaS)? That must be the most crucial question we should try to answer. Unfortunately, it is hard to provide a universal answer since the solutions differ significantly from one provider to another. Currently (July 2020), CaaS can be described as wild west with solutions ranging from amazing to useless.
Kubernetes’ Cluster Autoscaler is a prime example of the differences between different managed Kubernetes offerings. We’ll use it to compare the three major Kubernetes-as-a-Service providers.
I’ll limit the comparison between the vendors only to the topics related to Cluster Autoscaling.
