Entering GitOps 2.0 with Codefresh and ArgoCD

In our previous article, we explained the vision behind GitOps 2.0 and the features we expect to be covered by GitOps 2.0 tools. In this article, we will see how the new Codefresh GitOps dashboard is the first step towards this vision and more specifically in the area of observability and traceability.


The pains of GitOps 1.0

GitOps as a practice for releasing software has several advantages, but like all other solutions before it, has also several shortcomings. It seems that the honeymoon period is now over, and we can finally talk about the issues of GitOps (and the current generation of GitOps tools) In the article we will see the following pain points of GitOps.

Managing Your Full Application Lifecycle Using #GitOps

#GitOps is nothing new. Or, to be more precise, the principles of GitOps existed long before the term was invented. But hey, that's the pattern in our industry. It is the fate of all good practices to be misunderstood, so we need to come up with new names to get people back on track. That is not to say that we are in a constant loop. Instead, I tend to think of it as a periodic reset trying to eliminate misinterpretations. GitOps is one of those resets. It fosters the practices and the ideas that existed for a while now and builds on top of them.

#GitOps: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

We all know what #GitOps is or what it should be. Nevertheless, not everything is full of roses and unicorns. Just as there are many benefits, we have many problems that need to be resolved both from the tooling and process perspectives. Join us in the open discussion with Viktor Farcic from #Codefresh and Adam Sandor from #ContainerSolutions

GitOps Patterns - Auto-Sync Vs. Manual Sync

The conversation usually starts with a question like “should we let ArgoCD/Flux/whatever synchronize the actual state automatically whenever the desired state changes in Git?” Truth be told, the question is usually not that elaborated, and it is more like “should I enable the auto-sync feature?” But, I wanted to save you from follow-up questions that help me better understand what that means, so I gave you a more extended and more precise version of the inquiry.


Implementing GitOps on Kubernetes Using K3s, Rancher, Vault and ArgoCD

As Kubernetes continues to establish itself as the industry standard for container orchestration, finding effective ways to use a declarative model for your applications and tools is critical to success. In this blog, we’ll set up a K3s Kubernetes cluster in AWS, then implement secure GitOps using ArgoCD and Vault. Check out the source for the infrastructure and the Kubernetes umbrella application here.
