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

Cluster API provides declarative APIs that simplify provisioning, upgrading, and operating Kubernetes clusters.Continue reading
What Do Developers Really Need (And How Can Ops Help)?
How can SREs, DevOps, ops, security, and other types of experts help developers?Continue reading
Combining Argo CD (GitOps), Crossplane (Control Plane), And Kubevela (OAM)
Can we make Kubernetes disappear? Can we make infrastructure and application management so simple that anyone can do it? Can we leverage DevOps, SRE, ops, and sysadmin experience to create a system that would make developers autonomous? TL;DR We can do that by combining ArgoCD (GitOps), Crossplane (control plane), Kubevela (OAM), and a few other tools.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
How to Apply GitOps to Everything – Combining Argo CD and Crossplane
How to manage infrastructure, applications, and services? How to apply GitOps principles to everything? How to ensure that all the resources are always in-sync? Can we combine infrastructure, application, and service management using ArgoCD and Crossplane?Continue reading
Terraform vs. Pulumi vs. Crossplane – Infrastructure as Code (IaC) Tools Compared
We are comparing Terraform, Pulumi, Crossplane. Those are the most popular and the most exciting Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tools we have on the market today. Which one should you use? What are the pros and cons of each? What are the use cases that make one a better choice over the others?
Crossplane – GitOps-based Infrastructure as Code through Kubernetes API
Crossplane is an open-source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) project that enables us to use Kubernetes to provision and manage infrastructure, services, and applications. Combined with Argo CD or Flux, it allows us to apply GitOps principles not only on infrastructure.
