How to Apply GitOps to Everything Using Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Crossplane, and Flux
Open source Crossplane enables GitOps to be applied virtually everywhere using Kubernetes as a proxy to provision and manage cloud resources. This article will take you in a step-by-step workflow to provision Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) clusters and an Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) database the GitOps way using Crossplane and Flux.
Code isn’t the only way to contribute to open source. The popular Apache TinkerPop project has a recognizable and memorable identity thanks to graphic artist and Apache committer Ketrina Thompson.
Kubernetes is gaining popularity as a control plane application programming interface (API), and coupling it with Crossplane further extends its usability. Kubernetes not only orchestrates and schedules containers, but also manages resources by extending the declarative APIs and adding a reconciliation process. The combination is appealing to both DevOps teams and application development teams because […]
GraphQL is an application-level query language that helps clients and servers communicate by establishing a common protocol for queries. It represents an alternative to the REST style: unlike REST, GraphQL gives the client, not the server, the power to define what kind of data will be included in the response to its query. GraphQL allows […]
What is Redis? Redis is an incredibly popular open source (BSD licensed) in-memory data store, generally used as a database, cache, or message broker. Redis is regularly touted by developers as the most loved database and you’ve used Redis when on Twitter, GitHub, Instagram, Airbnb, and many other products. Redis Clusters enable you to scale […]
Apache TinkerPop is an open source computing framework for graph databases and graph analytic systems. Designed to appeal to software developers, TinkerPop lets developers add graph computing capabilities to their applications without worrying about developing APIs, graph processing engines, or graph algorithms. Although Apache TinkerPop is an open source project rather than a formal standard, […]

One of the best things about open source is its community. It’s the community that helps to popularize a project. It’s the community that helps to build the project through code, documentation, and other contributions. It’s the community that sometimes turns into paying customers, too. But it’s also the community that may compete with you. […]
In April this year, we introduced OpenSearch, a community-driven, open source search and analytics suite derived from open source Elasticsearch 7.10.2 and Kibana 7.10.2. The project consists of a search engine (OpenSearch), a visualization and user interface (OpenSearch Dashboards), and the advanced features from Open Distro for Elasticsearch (our previous distribution of Elasticsearch) such as […]
