How can we create and manage Kubernetes clusters on-prem or in Cloud? How can we manage our clusters across providers and regions? Can Rancher and Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE) help us with those and other similar tasks? Can we use it to manage clusters no matter whether they are in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud (GCP), DigitalOcean, Linode, VMWare, and other Cloud providers as well as in our own on-prem datacenters?Continue reading
Tekton is a powerful and flexible open-source framework for creating CI/CD systems aiming at becoming a de-facto standard for running pipelines and workflows in Kubernetes. It allows developers to build, test, and deploy across cloud providers and on-premise systems.Continue reading
Can we have a platform that helps developers deploy, manage, and monitor their applications without going into all the details behind Kubernetes? Shipa might be one such platform.
In this video, we’re exploring Shipa from the developer’s perspective. One of the upcoming videos will go through parts of Shipa related to the work operators, sysadmins, SREs, or platform managers are doing.Continue reading
Can we define cloud-native applications without dealing with resources related to underlying platforms? One possible solution is to use the Open Application Model (OAM) combined with KubeVela.Continue reading
Helmfile is a declarative specification for deploying Helm charts in Kubernetes.Continue reading
k3d is a lightweight wrapper to run Rancher k3s in Docker. k3d allows us to create single-node and multi-node k3s clusters in Docker, for local development on Kubernetes, or as temporary testing environment.Continue reading
Gatekeeper is a validating (mutating TBA) webhook that enforces Kubernetes CRD-based policies executed by Open Policy Agent (OPA), a policy engine for Cloud Native environments.Continue reading
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
kind allows us to run local Kubernetes clusters with nodes running as Docker containers.
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?
