This post will explore the juxtaposition of acronyms, keywords and correlation of the needs versus the actual wants. Specifically, as far as the mesh is concerned.

In my own experience working with the Kubernetes cluster environments, one thing becomes a certainty, — this technical arena is incredibly fast paced. So…

To start, it was certainly a good idea to have booked off all 3 days (UK time meant 4–5 pm start) for this CNCF Conference.

It was full on, packed with updates and announcements, not forgetting the genuine new best practices and learnings you ought to catch up with.

While…

I was recently fortunate enough to be tasked to investigate, develop and deliver a suitable open source testing framework for the terraform code base, as part of the infrastructure release pipeline.

The “Quality Assurance for everything” intent is nothing new. The implementation however, does depend and varies across organisational infrastructure…

Welcome back! This is another technical post, building up on the previous terraform and kubernetes Infrastructure-as-code themed write-ups, we have at Contino.

TL;DR
Whatever your team size. Implementation of a good terraform-based infrastructure configuration analysis, and end-to-end sanity testing, does not need to be long nor complicated.

I was fortunate…

Anyone who has worked with OSS monitoring tools like Prometheus and Grafana would attest that these are some great and the #1 choice of tools to be deployed within the Kubernetes containerised environment.

There is a long list of admin overhead to be considered while configuring the monitoring stack to…

Kubernetes is already hard.
We know it. They know it. Steve knows it.
Then why, you’d be right to say — Why!? — is the node labelling is called “Tainting” and why-oh-why does the Pod need to “Tolerate”.

Well, let’s figure this one out.

If you are reading this, You’re…

If you are here, then you’ve surely heard about GitOps. Your colleagues rave on about it, perhaps folks in your office whisper it about, or you sat on the bus next to some chap who does ‘use’ GitOps.

Have a read of GitOps Processes and Integration with flux which was…

I did say ‘part deux' was coming in my previous Blog Post Istio-Proxy Ingress SSL Certificate Integration the old fashioned* way(no SDS) — so here it is.

At first, you work with Containers and this is it! then you discover the new world of Kubernetes, and this becomes it again…
