I just learned about YAML anchors a few days ago, shortened up a docker-compose file I had quite nicely

@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) does cert manager act as a private CA?nevermind, it sounds like it’s really just providing a way for key exchange

I’m at this same spot on this question. I want to go with k8s, but i need to really evaluate whether that makes the most sense

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

Yeah I live in a cloudformation world, so slow, so limited

@oscarsullivan_old kubernetes up and running is a great book and does an amazing job at teaching you the primitives in k8s, starting with pods and going all the way through deployments, statefulsets, etc. it’s aging, but the primitives still line up

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

I’ve used both, Kubernetes the hard way didn’t help me that much. It would probably help more if you were planning to build your own cluster from scratch versus something like GKE or EKS. It did help teach me the various parts of kubernetes that are under the hood, but for running an app, not so much

@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) what’s your thoughts on building your own K8S cluster with something like kops or kubeadm or whatever versus using EKS?

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

I know Kubernetes fairly well from a lab standpoint, I want to get it implemented at my new job here though

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) yeah good distinction, thanks for reminding me of that

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

I really want to just use EKS, but I don’t know enough to know where that will bite me, or if it will.

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

Will kubeaws generate cloudformation that I can keep committed in my own git repo, so that I can “gitops” all day long?

awslabs/aws-service-operator

AWS Service Operator allows you to create AWS resources using kubectl. - awslabs/aws-service-operator

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

@oscarsullivan_old no you still need to provision non-kubernetes resources outside of k8s

Alex Siegman avatar
Alex Siegman

This looks like a way to let K8S do cloudformation on your behalf, I’d bet as part of a yaml configuration or something, like you would for a pod or replicaset or deployment

It’s a good thing to have in the back of the pocket. I’d want to have a more defined problem to solve for such a service. I’m really enjoying having found this “SweetOps” community though, and if you guys get more clients out of it, all the better

Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) avatar
Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse)

What we realize is that sometimes a company might not even know what problems they might need to be solving. Our job as architects is to shape that process and help you start discussing it. Keep in mind, most companies re-platform at most every 3-5 years. We re-platform 12x a year or more, which offers tremendous accelerated learning. As a outside 3rd party we can help propose things from a different/fresh perspective.

@Alex Siegman Likewise thought the same: “I need a problem to solve before asking for help”… and yet I easily have 10 questions a day, 9 of which I can answer myself.. but what if I had someone else to: 1) bounce more advanced ideas with 2) give their 2 cents on my future plans 3) suggest something entirely new that I never thought of

That’s why we just signed up starting next week

We’re actually having a lot of trouble hiring to build out our devops/central services/whatever team, having a place I could hire might come in handy here soon
