How Qovery billing works

Let’s see how the Qovery billing is working as we are about launching the v2 in less than two weeks. Since we launched Qovery in January 2020, our product was free of charge for our “community” and “business” plans - even if on the pricing page it was mentioned the opposite. Making Qovery free was the perfect way to get product feedback and iterate with our users without the cost constraint.

5 Tips to Improve Kubernetes Understandability

When you talk to an enterprise development team these days, there is a good chance they are in the midst of either migrating applications to the cloud or building a Cloud Native greenfield application. While there are many approaches to running those applications in the cloud, Kubernetes often comes to the forefront as the platform of choice. It provides a powerful container orchestration platform, which provides plenty of room for growth as your application evolves.


How to configure Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes with SAML and hot-warm-cold architecture

Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes (ECK) is an easy way to get the Elastic Stack up and running on top of Kubernetes. That’s because ECK automates the deployment, provisioning, management, and setup of Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and more. As logging and metric data — or time series data — has a predictable lifespan, you can use hot, warm, and cold architecture to easily manage your data over time as it ages and becomes less relevant.


How to rightsize the Kubernetes resource limits

Kubernetes resource limits are always a tricky setting to tweak, since you have to find the sweet spot between having the limits too tight or too loose. In this article, which is a continuation of the Kubernetes capacity planning series, you’ll learn how to set the right Kubernetes resource limits: from detecting the containers without any limit, to finding the right Kubernetes resource limits you should set in your cluster.


Autoscaling AppOptics With Apache Deployed in K8s Pods

Introduction Since its introduction in 2014, Kubernetes has become the de-facto standard for deploying and scaling containers for cloud deployments and on-premises environments. Initially, it required a DevOps/SRE team to build, deploy, and maintain the Kubernetes deployment in the cloud. Now, all major cloud vendors provide a managed Kubernetes offering, freeing up teams to focus on managing and scaling the application instead of the infrastructure.


Seeing Civo featured by Forbes makes all the hard work worthwhile!

Yesterday, my morning started much like most Tuesday mornings do for me... my kids (6 and 4) were up way too early again at around 6am! Both were demanding I play with them before they head to school. I did my usual and said "give me five minutes" as I tried to wake up after another night of going to sleep after midnight... one day I should really learn to go to bed earlier, now that I have kids! But this morning was different. I started to wake from my dazed state and reached for my phone.


Automated Falco rule tuning

We recently released the automated Falco rule tuning feature in Sysdig Secure. Out-of-the-box security rules are a double-edged sword. On one side, they allow you to get started right away. On the other, it can take many working hours to learn the technology, configuration, and syntax to be able to customize the rules to fit your applications. Falco’s default security rules are no different.
