Kubewarden is a policy engine for Kubernetes that is part of the CNCF Sandbox. Its mission is to simplify the adoption of policy-as-code. Never heard of Kubewarden? Do you want to know what makes Kubewarden stand out among similar solutions? This is a high-level overview of Kubewarden’s unique points: Today, a year and a half since its conception, we’re thrilled to announce the release of Kubewarden v1.0.0!

Epinio: The Developer Platform You Should Try Today

Epinio is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that allows developers to go from the application source to a URL in one step. Try Epinio today or try it tomorrow — but make sure you try it. We just released our first stable version (Epinio v1.0.0) and we think you are going to love it. Let me tell you why.

Deploying Highly Available K3s with External Database

Having trouble deploying Kubernetes in a highly available mode and have a backing remote database? This blog is for you. I will explain how to deploy K3s in HA configuration with an external database Postgres. K3s is a certified Kubernetes distribution for IoT and Edge computing. I deployed it on virtual machines in an IBM Z mainframe. Instead of etcd, I choose Postgres as my storage for my K3s clusters. I deployed Postgres in non HA mode.

Customizing your Application with Epinio

One of the best things about Kubernetes is just how absurdly flexible it is. You, as an admin, can shape what gets deployed into what is the best for your business. Whether this is a basic webapp with just a deployment, service and ingress; or if you need all sorts of features with sidecars and network policies wrapping the serverless service-mesh platform of the day. The power is there.

Secure Supply Chain: Verifying image signatures

After these last releases Kubewarden now has support for verifying the integrity and authenticity of artifacts within Kubewarden using the Sigstore project. In this post, we shall focus on verifying container image signatures using the new verify-image-signatures policy. To learn more about how Sigstore works, take a look at our previous post

What's New in Rancher 2.6.5?

With KubeCon underway, many of us in the cloud native community are looking forward to learning about the newest innovations from the companies we follow. At SUSE, we’ve been working hard to deliver some new enhancements to Rancher with our 2.6.5 version. I want to briefly take you through the highlights of this release and why we’re excited about these new additions.

Deploying K3s with Ansible

There are many different ways to run a Kubernetes cluster, from setting everything up manually to using a lightweight distribution like K3s. K3s is a Kubernetes distribution built for IoT and edge computing and is excellent for running on low-powered devices like Raspberry Pis. However, you aren’t limited to running it on low-powered hardware; it can be used for anything from a Homelab up to a Production cluster.

Kubernetes in Docker Desktop Just Got Easier with Epinio

Epinio takes developers from application to URL in one step. In this blog post, I’m going to tell you about the new Epinio extension for Docker Desktop, that allows you to run Epinio on your laptop. DevOps are very interested in the details of containerized workloads and Kubernetes especially, but for developers, the abstraction layer provided by Kubernetes might not be too relevant to their daily work.
