Open Source – Environment Operator

The day has finally come. Today we are announcing our open source project Environment Operator (EO). Environment Operator is used throughout our project and has rapidly gained a name for itself as being well written and well thought out. Props go out to Simas Cepaitis, Cristian Radu and Ben Somogyi who have all contributed. At its core,…

Kubernetes: FaaS Options (part 1)

Over the last few months I’ve been diving into various Serverless/FaaS architectures that can run on Kubernetes. To say this space has exploded would be a severe understatement. The number of amazing developers working in this space is remarkable. Much less the number of them integrating with Kubernetes. I’m not going to talk about wrappers…


Kubernetes – PodPresets

Podpresets in Kubernetes are a cool new addition to container orchestration in v1.7 as an alpha capability. At first they seem relatively simple but when I began to realize their current AND potential value, I came up with all kinds of potential use cases. Basically Podpresets inject configuration into pods for any pod using a…


The perils of a Kube-DNS issue with Nginx Ingress

Ok so this is going to be a tough one to write but I’m going to do it anyway. This is a story of data overload, a shit ton of rabbit holes, some kick ass engineers and a few hours of my life I hope not to repeat. I never cease being amazed by how one…


Kubernetes: Pod Disruption Budget

As an example, lets imagine we are draining a server for the purpose of a restart. There are 5 pods…

deployment pipeline options for Kubernetes

In the last several months various deployment (CI/CD) pipelines have cropped up within the Kubernetes community and our team also released one at KubeCon Seattle 2016. As a result I’ve been asked on a couple different occasions why we built our own. So here is my take. We began this endeavor sometime late 2015. You…


StackStorm for Kubernetes just took a giant leap forward (beta)

  came up with it one morning around 4am while trying to get the baby to sleep. i’m pretty proud. mostly because it works 😉  – Andy Moore   As many of you know, my team began integrating StackStorm with Kubernetes via ThirdPartyResources(TPR) which we showed off at KubeCon_London in March 2016. This was a great…


KubeCon Seattle Video

Finally posting this after my speaking engagement at KubeCon_Seattle in November 2016. Thanks to all that came. My hope is releasing our Deployment Pipeline will help the Kubernetes community build an ecosystem of open source CI/CD pipelines to support an awesome platform. Below the video are links to the various open source projects we have…
