  • kubernetes

    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

    Project mention: Experience Continuous Integration with Jenkins | Ansible | Artifactory | SonarQube | PHP | dev.to | 2024-02-24

    In this project, you will understand and get hands on experience around the entire concept around CI/CD from applications perspective. To fully gain real expertise around this idea, it is best to see it in action across different programming languages and from the platform perspective too. From the application perspective, we will be focusing on PHP here; there are more projects ahead that are based on Java, Node.js, .Net and Python. By the time you start working on Terraform, Docker and Kubernetes projects, you will get to see the platform perspective of CI/CD in action.

  • Moby

  • Docker Compose

    Define and run multi-container applications with Docker

    Project mention: Use same Dockerfile for Dev & Production | dev.to | 2024-02-08

    In many projects that are containerized, especially in cases where development is also done locally with docker-compose, teams often have two Dockerfiles, 1 for Development, the other for Production. If you happen to have multiple environments like pre-prod, staging and so on, some teams could have different Dockerfiles for these environments.

  • minikube

    Run Kubernetes locally

    Project mention: K3s – Lightweight Kubernetes | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-11

    If you're just messing around, just use kind (https://kind.sigs.k8s.io) or minikube if you want VMs (https://minikube.sigs.k8s.io). Both work on ARM-based platforms.

    You can also use k3s; it's hella easy to get started with and it works great.

  • k3s

    Lightweight Kubernetes

    Project mention: 15 Options To Build A Kubernetes Playground (with Pros and Cons) | dev.to | 2024-01-25

    K3S: is a lightweight distribution of Kubernetes that is designed for resource-constrained environments. It is an excellent option for running Kubernetes on a virtual machine or cloud server.

  • k6

  • Hey

    HTTP load generator, ApacheBench (ab) replacement (by rakyll)

    Project mention: AWS SnapStart - Part 15 Measuring cold and warm starts with Java 21 using different synchronous HTTP clients | dev.to | 2024-02-12

    The results of the experiment below were based on reproducing more than 100 cold and approximately 100.000 warm starts with experiment which ran for approximately 1 hour. For it (and experiments from my previous article) I used the load test tool hey, but you can use whatever tool you want, like Serverless-artillery or Postman. I ran all these experiments for all 3 scenarios using 2 different compilation options in template.yaml each:

  • Packer

    Packer is a tool for creating identical machine images for multiple platforms from a single source configuration.

    Project mention: The 2024 Web Hosting Report | dev.to | 2024-02-20

    To manage a VM, you can use something as simple as just manual actions over SSH, or can use tools like Ansible, Hashicorp's Packer and Terraform or other automations. For an app where there is minimal load and security/reliability concern, VMs are still a great option that provide a lot of value for the buck

  • kind

    Kubernetes IN Docker - local clusters for testing Kubernetes

    Project mention: How to distribute workloads using Open Cluster Management | dev.to | 2024-01-26

    To get started, you'll need to install clusteradm and kubectl and start up three Kubernetes clusters. To simplify cluster administration, this article starts up three kind clusters with the following names and purposes:

  • yq

    Project mention: K8s Service Meshes: The Bill Comes Due | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-03-02
  • kubeshark

    The API traffic analyzer for Kubernetes providing real-time K8s protocol-level visibility, capturing and monitoring all traffic and payloads going in, out and across containers, pods, nodes and clusters. Inspired by Wireshark, purposely built for Kubernetes

    Project mention: Show HN: Alaz: Open-Source, Self-Hosted, eBPF-Based K8s Monitoring | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-06

    The one similar product I had come across is Kubeshark (https://github.com/kubeshark/kubeshark). But admittedly the eBPF way seems more performant theoretically (given you can afford to have a modern-enough kernel). I'm really excited to see how this project develops out.

    The eBPF-mode of innovation is pretty exciting, truly a fresh lens to building software. I'm also following Akita Software - the company building an eBPF paradigm of monitoring.
