Setting up HA on your Kubernetes cluster is certainly the next logical step in bringing Kubernetes to the prime-time. That said, the process of configuring and maintaining the cluster still presents some challenges! I'm hopeful that advancements in the Kubernetes project will help to reduce some of those challenges in the future.

Having a Kubernetes cluster is the first step towards building a more resilient and scalable infrastructure. While building a Kubernetes cluster is becoming easier every day, building a solid deployment pipeline to deploy our applications onto can feel a bit scary. It shouldn’t be. Let’s see what we need to deploy our applications onto a cluster in a safe, secure, reliable and repeatable way.

Containers are a great way to realize the promise of a microservices architecture, but in production, containerization is not going to work without developers’ involvement and buy-in.

Each side of this equation (Dev and Ops) has its own vendors, tools, and open source projects to help them with what it takes to move to a containerized world—but that’s not enough.

Transform configuration files based on custom scripts. An elegant and understandable equivalent of XSLT but for JSON and YAML!

While Alterant can be used with any JSON or YAML file, it is most useful if you use it with Kubernetes configuration files. Kubernetes configuration files describe how infrastructure resources should be deployed and configured on a cluster. However, a lot of times we find ourselves applying the same modifications to many of them.

A strong trend in the world of application deployment is “build once, deploy many”—where “many” could stand for complex environments, clusters and/or clouds. This, together with the power of the Kubernetes API, easily accessed by developers, makes the need for reliable, traceable and auditable configuration files even more pertinent.

Most CI/CD tools ignore the complexity of microservices, cover much less of the process, and add less value compared to what they do for monolithic apps. A new class of solution is needed — a Container Delivery Pipeline, or CDP.
Article
Kubernetes brings Devs and Ops closer together, and to avoid the complexity of the infrastructure impacting development pace, a Container Delivery Pipeline (CDP) solution should facilitate efficient maintenance of container delivery that is consistent with the code.
