    Production-Grade Container Scheduling and Management

  • Project mention: Building Scalable GraphQL Microservices With Node.js and Docker: A Comprehensive Guide | dev.to | 2024-04-10

    To learn more, you can start by exploring the official Kubernetes documentation.

  • traefik

    The Cloud Native Application Proxy

  • Project mention: How to securely reverse-proxy ASP.NET Core web apps | dev.to | 2024-04-04

    However, it's very unlikely that .NET developers will directly expose their Kestrel-based web apps to the internet. Typically, we use other popular web servers like Nginx, Traefik, and Caddy to act as a reverse-proxy in front of Kestrel for various reasons:

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

    sudo dnf -y install curl wget vim ETCD_RELEASE=$(curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/etcd-io/etcd/releases/latest|grep tag_name | cut -d '"' -f 4) echo $ETCD_RELEASE wget https://github.com/etcd-io/etcd/releases/download/${ETCD_RELEASE}/etcd-${ETCD_RELEASE}-linux-amd64.tar.gz tar xvf etcd-${ETCD_RELEASE}-linux-amd64.tar.gz cd etcd-${ETCD_RELEASE}-linux-amd64 sudo mv etcd* /usr/local/bin ls /usr/local/bin /usr/local/bin/etcd --version

  • minio

    The Object Store for AI Data Infrastructure

  • Project mention: A Distributed File System in Go Cut Average Metadata Memory Usage to 100 Bytes | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-22

    Looks like minio added this in 2022:


  • istio

    Connect, secure, control, and observe services.

  • Project mention: Improve your EKS cluster with Istio and Cilium : Better networking and security | dev.to | 2024-04-09

    Istio is a popular open-source service mesh framework that provides a comprehensive solution for managing, securing, and observing microservices-based applications running on Kubernetes.

  • minikube

    Run Kubernetes locally

  • Project mention: Building Llama as a Service (LaaS) | dev.to | 2024-04-08

    With the containerized Node.js/Express API, I could run multiple containers, scaling to handle more traffic. Using a tool called minikube, we can easily spin up a local Kubernetes cluster to horizontally scale Docker containers. It was possible to keep one shared instance of the database, and many APIs were routed with an internal Kubernetes load balancer.

  • consul

    Consul is a distributed, highly available, and data center aware solution to connect and configure applications across dynamic, distributed infrastructure.

  • Project mention: Deploy Secure Spring Boot Microservices on Amazon EKS Using Terraform and Kubernetes | dev.to | 2023-11-23

    The JHipster scaffolded sample application has a gateway application and two microservices. It uses Consul for service discovery and centralized configuration.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.

  • k3s

    Lightweight Kubernetes

  • Project mention: Linux fu: getting started with systemd | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-14

    For self-hosting I've found https://k3s.io to be really good from the SUSE people. Works on basically any Linux distro and makes self-hosting k8s not miserable.

  • helm

    The Kubernetes Package Manager

  • Project mention: deploying a minio service to kubernetes | dev.to | 2024-04-08


  • k9s

    🐶 Kubernetes CLI To Manage Your Clusters In Style!

  • Project mention: Upgrading Hundreds of Kubernetes Clusters | dev.to | 2024-04-03

    Pierre: The first tool I recommend is K9s. It's not just a time-saver but a productivity booster. With its intuitive interface, you can speed up all the usual kubectl commands, access logs, edit resources and configurations, and more. It's like having a personal assistant for your cluster management tasks.

  • OpenFaaS

    OpenFaaS - Serverless Functions Made Simple

  • Project mention: Serverless Functions, Made Simple | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-11
  • dapr

    Dapr is a portable, event-driven, runtime for building distributed applications across cloud and edge.

  • Project mention: Interesting projects using WebAssembly | dev.to | 2024-04-08

    The following two examples are open-source projects maintained by Fermyon with contributions from companies like Microsoft and SUSE. The first is Spin, which allows us to use WebAssembly to create Serverless applications. The second, SpinKube, combines some of the topics I'm most excited about these days: WebAssembly and Kubernetes Operators :) The official website says, "By running applications in the Wasm abstraction layer, SpinKube offers developers a more powerful, efficient, and scalable way to optimize application delivery on Kubernetes." By the way, this post shows how to integrate SpinKube with Dapr, another technology I'm very interested in, and I should write some posts soon.

  • rancher

    Complete container management platform

  • Project mention: OpenTF Announces Fork of Terraform | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-25

    Did something happen to the Apache 2 rancher? https://github.com/rancher/rancher/blob/v2.7.5/LICENSE RKE2 is similarly Apache 2: https://github.com/rancher/rke2/blob/v1.26.7%2Brke2r1/LICENS...

  • Harbor

    An open source trusted cloud native registry project that stores, signs, and scans content.

  • Project mention: DwarFS – The Deduplicating Warp-Speed Advanced Read-Only File System | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-11

    Whoops: WebDAV:


    SeaweedFS supports WebDAV. https://github.com/seaweedfs/seaweedfs/wiki/WebDAV

    I'm not able to find if both/restic supports mounting backups as WebDAV, but in theory there's nothing stopping you.

    It's 100% user space (expose a rest service) and supported by a bunch of file-browsers with a bit of a network aware component to it as well.

  • Pulumi

    Pulumi - Infrastructure as Code in any programming language. Build infrastructure intuitively on any cloud using familiar languages 🚀

  • Project mention: How To Implement AWS SSB Controls in Terraform - Part 4 | dev.to | 2024-04-10

    If you are following this blog series, you should already know the benefits of using Terraform to define and deploy your AWS resources and configuration. Other IaC solutions such as AWS CloudFormation, AWS CDK, and Pulumi work the same way but differs in the programming or configuration language.

  • authelia

    The Single Sign-On Multi-Factor portal for web apps

  • Project mention: Keycloak SSO with Docker Compose and Nginx | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-02-11

    It's me and two others though I'm definitely the most active. We put a lot of effort into security best practices and one of my co-developers is currently reviewing the 4.38.0 release. It's a fairly major release with a lot of important code paths that have been improved for the future.

    Our official docs can be found at https://www.authelia.com and you can find docs for a particular PR in the relevant PR. We've also linked the pre-release docs in the pre-release discussions which can be found here: https://github.com/authelia/authelia/discussions/categories/...

  • cilium

    eBPF-based Networking, Security, and Observability

  • Project mention: Cisco to Acquire Cloud Native Networking and Security Leader Isovalent | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-12-21

    They would have had to add a few externals to get to Graduated but it's definitely a minority:


  • vitess

    Vitess is a database clustering system for horizontal scaling of MySQL.

  • Project mention: A MySQL compatible database engine written in pure Go | news.ycombinator.com | 2024-04-09

    With Vitess likely merging a lot of its binaries into a single unified binary: https://github.com/vitessio/vitess/issues/7471#issuecomment-...

    ... it would be a wild future if Vitess replaced the underlying MySQL engine with this as long as the performance is good enough.

  • kubectx

    Faster way to switch between clusters and namespaces in kubectl

  • Project mention: Building a Kubernetes Operator with the Operator Framework | dev.to | 2024-01-07
