GitOps model for provisioning and bootstrapping Amazon EKS clusters using Crossplane and Flux

In an earlier blog (Part 1 of the series), I discussed the adoption of the GitOps model as an efficient strategy for provisioning cloud provider-specific managed resources, such as, for example, Amazon S3 bucket and Amazon RDS instance, that application workloads depend on. The blog presented the details of implementing a use case where an Amazon […]

In addition to managing the so-called "Day Two" operations, the GitOps model can be used to automate cluster lifecycle management as well. In this blog post, we take a look at implementing a real-world use case by leveraging the strength of two open-source tools, namely, Crossplane and Argo CD. A production-ready Amazon EKS cluster is employed as the central management cluster and used to manage the tasks of both provisioning other Amazon EKS clusters and deploying workloads on to them.

GitOps model for provisioning and bootstrapping Amazon EKS clusters using Crossplane and Argo CD

Customers are increasingly using multiple Kubernetes clusters to manage their application delivery to different environments.  Managed services like Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) help customers offload the onerous task of managing the Kubernetes control plane. But cluster operators face the challenge of managing the lifecycles of these clusters and deploying applications consistently to multiple […]

Automating Amazon EKS with GitOps

This post is contributed by Anita Buehrle, Director of Content at Weaveworks. Companies want to go fast; they need to deploy more often, more reliably, and preferably with less overhead. GitOps is a fast and secure method for developers to manage and update complex applications and infrastructure running in Kubernetes. GitOps is an operations and […]

Getting started with AWS App Mesh and Amazon EKS

In this blog post we explain service mesh usage in containerized microservices and walk you through a concrete example of how to get started with AWS App Mesh with Amazon EKS. Increasingly, AWS customers adopt microservices to build scalable and resilient applications, reducing time-to-market. When moving from a monolithic to a microservices architecture, you break […]

Securing EKS Ingress With Contour And Let’s Encrypt The GitOps Way

This is a guest post by Stefan Prodan of Weaveworks. In Kubernetes terminology, Ingress exposes HTTP(S) routes from outside the cluster to services running within the cluster. An Ingress can be configured to provide Kubernetes services with externally-reachable URLs while performing load balancing and SSL/TLS termination. Kubernetes comes with an Ingress resource and there are several controllers that […]

Autoscaling EKS on Fargate with custom metrics

This is a guest post by Stefan Prodan of Weaveworks. Autoscaling is an approach to automatically scale up or down workloads based on the resource usage. In Kubernetes, the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler (HPA) can scale pods based on observed CPU utilization and memory usage. Starting with Kubernetes 1.7, an aggregation layer was introduced that allows third-party […]

Help us write a new chapter for Gitops, Kubernetes, and Open Source collaboration

Introduction The Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) team sees the ecosystem around automated software deployment as a technology frontier ripe with potential for groundbreaking innovation. Over the last twenty years, the way in which developers deploy and manage their applications has changed dramatically. Technology improvements in packaging, automation, and virtualization as well as shifts in […]
