GitOps for Kubernetes with Priyanka Ravi and Stefan Prodan


Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

Although it improves the management and scaling of infrastructure and applications, Kubernetes frequently has challenges managing the complexity of releasing applications.

Git is the most widely used version-control system in the software industry today. GitOps is a set of procedures that uses the power of Git to provide both revision and change control within the Kubernetes platform.

Flux is an open source project that implements GitOps-driven continuous deployment for Kubernetes.

In this episode we speak with Priyanka Ravi and Stefan Prodan from Weaveworks.

 

This Interview was recorded at KubeCon Europe and wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support from The Linux Foundation.
