Webinar: The top 7 most useful Kubernetes APIs for comprehensive cloud native observability

An important early step (just after “Orchestration & Application Definition” in the CNCF trail map) in starting your cloud-native journey is picking solutions for observability, including monitoring, logging, and tracing. All of these observability tools leverage data available from Kubernetes’ comprehensive APIs. Those APIs provide insights into the events that are occurring inside of the Kubernetes platform, including answers to questions like: “What’s running in my Kubernetes cluster?” In this webinar, Sensu Co-founder & CEO Caleb Hailey will walk through the various Kubernetes APIs that are necessary for complete visibility into your Kubernetes platform, with examples from open source observability tools like Prometheus and Sensu....

Webinar: Contour - High performance ingress controller for Kubernetes

Contour is an open source Kubernetes ingress controller providing the control plane for the Envoy edge and service proxy.​ Contour supports dynamic configuration updates and multi-team ingress delegation out of the box while maintaining a lightweight profile. Using Contour you can quickly deploy cloud native applications, update Envoy configurations on the fly, and safely delegate ingress configuration to protect service access on multi-team Kubernetes clusters. In this webinar, Steve Sloka, Sr....

Webinar: Building Kubernetes Operators in an Ansible-native way

Operators simplify management of complex applications on Kubernetes. They are usually written in Go and require expertise with the internals of Kubernetes. But, there’s an alternative to that with a lower barrier to entry. Ansible is a first-class citizen in the Operator SDK. Using Ansible frees up application engineers, maximizes time to automate and orchestrate your applications, and doing it across new & existing platforms with one simple language. Here we see how....

Webinar: Monitoring Kubernetes Workloads: The Sidecar Pattern

Kubernetes has entirely changed the way we build our infrastructure, enabling organizations to ship more changes faster. But, with all that speed comes challenges — containers introduce a non-trivial level of complexity when it comes to maintaining visibility into your infrastructure. Just as Kubernetes has required us to rethink how we build and deploy our applications, so too must we rethink the traditional approach to monitoring. In this webinar, Sensu CEO and co-founder Caleb Hailey will review some of the existing and popular patterns for monitoring Kubernetes (like Prometheus), and what gaps remain outstanding, especially when it comes to monitoring the applications running on Kubernetes....
