Kong Configurations Using Terraform via GitOps Model

As organizations adopt a microservices architecture, API gateway usage has increased. Kong Gateway is one of the promising API gateways in the market. It has both OSS and enterprise support, releases multiple features and is easy to use. Kong Admin API helps administrators configure the system easily, but it’s still error-prone. That’s because the user has to hit many curl calls for creating all the configs. When numerous folks are managing the system, this becomes difficult.


GitOps Use Cases You May Not Have Considered

GitOps is growing in popularity. You’ve probably seen it mentioned on Reddit or But what the heck is GitOps? Broadly speaking, GitOps takes the principles of Git and CI-powered workflows favored by software developers — commonly used to automate the process of building, testing and deploying software — and applies them to other business processes.


What is GitOps, Where Did It Come From, and Why Should You Care?

“What is GitOps?” – a question which has seen increasing popularity on Google searches and blog posts in the last three years. If you want to know why then read on. Quite simply, the coining of GitOps is credited to one individual, and pretty smart guy, Alexis Richardson. He’s so smart that he’s built a multi-award-winning consultancy, Weaveworks, and a bespoke product, Flux, around the GitOps concept.


Using OPA with GitOps to speed cloud-native development

Devops teams are flocking to GitOps strategies to accelerate development time frames and eliminate cloud misconfigurations. They should adopt a similar ‘as-code’ approach to policy. One risk in deploying fleets of powerful and flexible clusters on constantly changing infrastructure like Kubernetes is that mistakes happen. Even minute manual errors that slip past review can have substantial impacts on the health and security of your clusters.


APIOps: End-to-End Automation Throughout the API Lifecycle

It is a truth universally acknowledged that the culture change side of any technology transformation program is the hardest and slowest part to get right. If you cannot efficiently operationalize a technology investment, that investment is wasted. This is no different in the world of APIs and microservices, where every service is designed to support a change to a digital-first culture. APIOps makes this change possible.

Combining Progressive Delivery With GitOps And Continuous Delivery

Three phrases keep popping up when talking about modern workflows and development and deployment techniques. We have continuous delivery to automate the complete lifecycle of applications from a commit to a Git repository, all the way until a release is deployable to production. Then we have GitOps to define the desired states of our environments and let the machines handle the converge the actual into the desired state. Finally, there is a lot of focus on different deployment strategies grouped under progressive delivery.
