How to Run Kubernetes on AWS?

In the last years, Kubernetes has grown tremendously and is considered by most companies to be the best platform to run applications today. In simple words, Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that allows you to run and manage containerized applications at scale. In this article, I will explain how you can run Kubernetes on AWS in 3 different ways. But before getting down the road, let me explain why it does make sense to run Kubernetes on AWS.

KubeCon Europe 2024: Highlights from Paris

KubeCon Europe 2024 in Paris was the biggest event of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) to date. With over 12,000 participants, it was a monumental event, setting the stage for the latest trends and developments in cloud-native computing. As your loyal CNCF Ambassador, I’m here to share some of the important updates you don’t want to miss. I also invited fellow CNCF Ambassador Thomas Schuetz to join me with his own insights.

Top 10 Docker Container Monitoring Tools

Monitoring tools are critical for DevOps, enabling them to quickly find and rectify performance issues. With the increasing popularity of Docker, it has become crucial that organizations can effectively monitor these containers. But, as monitoring Docker containers is particularly complex, developing a strategy and an appropriate monitoring system is not simple. However, this process can be streamlined by utilizing a Docker monitoring tool.

How to use the Grafana Operator: Managing a Grafana Cloud stack in Kubernetes

When deploying an application using Kubernetes, you get used to all your resources being manageable by describing them to the Kubernetes API. Whether it’s deployments, secrets, configurations, or entire machines, everything exists as code somewhere. Introducing a cloud service into such an environment often means introducing additional ways to configure it, which can become cumbersome, given the rising number of cloud services modern applications depend on.

Navigating the future of tech: Insights from Solomon Hykes

Earlier this year, Mark Boost and Dinesh Majrekar had the chance to sit down with Solomon Hykes at Navigate North America 2024 to speak about his thoughts on the future of tech. Solomon is best known as the Founder, former Chief Technology Officer, and Chief Architect of Docker, and is currently the founder of Dagger, a programmable CI/CD engine that runs pipelines in containers, allowing development in various programming languages and execution across diverse environments.

Building Modern REST APIs with OpenAPI

No, I'm not talking about 'OpenAI', though you certainly can use it to assist in your API designs. I'm talking about the OpenAPI standard, a modern spec for defining REST APIs. If you're reading this, I probably don't need to tell you that REST APIs are ubiquitous in tech. Practically every company has at least one, whether it be an internal or customer facing API. While other types of APIs have been gaining traction the last few years (GraphQL, gRPC, etc), REST is here to stay.

Kubernetes Monitoring: Best Practices and Essential Tools

As Kubernetes adoption continues to surge across various industries, the need for robust monitoring solutions is more critical than ever. Effective Kubernetes monitoring not only ensures the health and performance of your containerized applications but also provides valuable insights for troubleshooting and optimizing your infrastructure. However, Kubernetes's distributed and dynamic nature presents unique challenges regarding monitoring and observability.
