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.
This post was written by Steve Borrelli, Rob Clark, Manabu McCloskey, Vikrant Kahlir, and Nima Kaviani. In a previous blog post, we discussed how GitOps, declarative definition of infrastructure and application resources, and using technologies such as AWS Controllers for Kubernetes (ACK) and Crossplane have enabled DevOps engineers to reduce complexity and improve visibility into […]
For an estimated 15 million developers, Jenkins is synonymous with countless iterations of collectible stickers of the iconic, non-assuming butler that have adorned their laptops all over the world. The butler is representative of the ubiquitous open source continuous integration (CI) technology that has quietly automated an endless set of development tasks for well over […]
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. It is especially suitable for building and deploying cloud-native applications on a massive scale, leveraging the elasticity of the cloud. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a managed service for running a production-grade, highly available Kubernetes cluster on […]
When we launched Amazon EKS, we had a plan for a more complete command line. We were intrigued by Weaveworks’ simultaneous launch of the open source command line tool eksctl, and excited about the user feedback we were hearing. We decided, instead of building our own, to embrace eksctl as part of the EKS planning […]
