Next-Generation DevOps: Join Us at The National DevOps Conference London

5 min read

Due to a number of reasons, the organizers are postponing this Conference until September 2022. 

We are excited to be participating in this year’s National DevOps Conference London as a sponsor and presenter of the Day 2 Keynote Address. 

Among the broad range of topics that will be covered at the conference, GitOps stands out as among the most important because, within the Kubernetes realm, DevOps is being transformed into GitOps through Flux. 

As Flux creator Michael Bridgen explained, “Flux was the project that gave rise to ‘GitOps,’ which helps teams manage the complexity of operating Kubernetes, and has potential to expand well beyond.”  

Weaveworks, the company in which Flux was created and then turned over to the open-source community, says “Flux is the operator that makes GitOps happen in your cluster. It ensures that the cluster config matches the one in git and automates your deployments.”

Don’t Miss the Day 2 Keynote Address: GitOps Best Practices

If you are attending National DevOps Conference London, be sure the catch the morning Day 2 Keynote Address in which D2iQ Kubernetes Evangelist and Engineer Kim-Norman Sahm will deliver his presentation entitled “Best Practices for Implementing GitOps at Scale: The Move Towards Cloud-Native.”

As he notes, “A declarative approach with standardized workflows centered around GitOps can increase productivity, reliability, visibility, and reduce potential variables, which means smaller attack surfaces.”

Kim-Norman Sahm will offer expert insights and advice about employing GitOps, including:

  • The benefits of Gitops and how the Kubernetes architecture makes GitOps a natural fit
  • Best practices about how to implement a basic GitOps Kubernetes deployment operator at scale
  • How to jumpstart your continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) effort

Single Source of Truth

As Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, explained, “GitOps started with the simple idea of using Git as the source of truth for declarative infrastructure to evolve to an ecosystem of tools that improves the developer experience of application delivery with Kubernetes.” 

Besides Flux, GitOps Kubernetes management is powered by Cluster API (CAPI) and Helm. CAPI enables DevOPs teams to manage the lifecycle (create, scale, upgrade, destroy) of Kubernetes clusters using a declarative API. Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that enables developers and operators to more easily package, configure, and deploy applications and services onto Kubernetes clusters.

Simplification Through Automation

The importance of these GitOps technologies can be seen in the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP) architecture, which is architected around CAPI to simplify infrastructure management using GitOps. DKP uses a declarative approach to Kubernetes through the adoption of CAPI and FluxCD to automate many of the manual operational tasks for continuous delivery and lifecycle management. 
 
If you are attending National DevOps Conference London, be sure to stop by the D2iQ booth to learn more about GitOps workflow, the D2iQ Kubernetes platform, and how D2iQ can help make your DevOps team, Kubernetes deployment, and smart-cloud native initiatives a success. Don’t miss this opportunity to speak with some of the best minds in the Kubernetes space. And don’t miss Kim-Norman Sahm’s session, Best Practices for Implementing GitOps at Scale.
