ClusterOps: The Power of GitOps to Infrastructure Provisioning
Within its seven years of existence, Kubernetes has been the centerpiece of the Cloud Native landscape, elevating a pluggable system that diversified the entire ecosystem. As a result, multiple areas have been developed in the industry, galvanizing solutions for components such as network, runtime, storage, and cluster provisioning.
The pivotal tool to manage cross-provider infrastructure has been Cluster API, leading a unique and radical stance for Kubernetes distribution. In association with a model such as GitOps, Cluster API assembles a mechanism that leverages the concept of a "cluster as a resource".
This talk will outline how ClusterOps can be modeled with Cluster API manifests and automated using GitOps tools such as ArgoCD and Flux.
Basic knowledge of Kubernetes, Cluster API and GitOps tooling is helpful.
Attendees will acquire an understanding of why automation of infrastructure provisioning is a powerful concept that leads an organization towards innovation.
