DevOps pipelines with Kubernetes

Cloud developers can take advantage of increased speed, decreased risk, and improved collaboration with Kubernetes and DevOps.

DevOps with OpenShift Book

Free book: DevOps with OpenShift

Experts explain how to configure Docker application containers and the Kubernetes cluster manager with OpenShift’s developer- and operational-centric tools. Discover how this infrastructure-agnostic container management platform can help companies navigate the murky area where infrastructure-as-code ends and application automation begins.

The book covers the following topics:

  • Why automation is important
  • Patterns and practical examples for managing continuous deployments such as rolling, A/B, blue-green, and canary
  • Implementing continuous integration pipelines with OpenShift’s CI/CD capability
  • Mechanisms for separating and managing configuration from static runtime software
  • Customizing OpenShift’s source-to-image capability
  • Considerations when working with OpenShift-based application workloads
  • Self-contained local versions of the OpenShift environment on your computer

What is DevOps?

DevOps is a set of tools and techniques for combining the development and deployment of software. DevOps uses source code management systems and automated testing software to simplify the development process, while automated build and deployment tools streamline the work of the operations team. In a sophisticated DevOps environment, the division of labor between people who write software and people who deploy software to production systems is largely artificial. As DevOps continues to mature, the line between development and operations departments will become more blurred.

DevOps - Tear down that wall

Podcast: DevOps - Tear down that wall

Red Hat's Command Line Heroes podcast series covered DevOps in Season 1, Episode 4.

What is DevOps, really? Developer guests, including Scott Hanselman from Microsoft and Cindy Sridharan of Apple, think about DevOps as a practice from their side of the wall, while members from various operations teams explain what they've been working to defend.

Differences remain, but with DevOps, teams are working better than ever. Learn more in this episode of Command Line Heroes.

How the fabric8 Maven plug-in deploys Java applications to OpenShift

June 2, 2020

The fabric8 Maven plug-in, often abbreviated FMP, can be added to a Maven Java project and takes care of the administrative tasks involved in deploying the application to a Red Hat OpenShift cluster. These tasks include: Creating an OpenShift build configuration (BC). Coordinating the source-to-image (S2I) process to create a container image from the application’s […]

Debugging vHost user TX contention in Open vSwitch

Debugging vHost user TX contention in Open vSwitch

May 29, 2020

It isn’t always easy to understand how Open vSwitch (OVS) cycles are spent, especially because various parameters and configuration options can affect how OVS behaves. Members of the Open vSwitch community are actively working to understand what causes packets drops in Open vSwitch. Efforts so far have included adding a custom statistic for vHost TX […]

Build a Go application using OpenShift Pipelines

Build a Go application using OpenShift Pipelines

May 26, 2020

Go is an increasingly popular programming language, and frequently chosen for developing command-line utilities. Many tools used with Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift are written in Go, including the command-line interfaces (CLIs) for Tekton (tkn), OpenShift (oc), and Kubernetes (kubectl). Also, developers can compile Go to a single executable for a broad range of operating […]

Cloud-native computing terms all in one place

Cloud-native computing terms all in one place

May 21, 2020

What does eventual consistency even mean? Or, how about a dark launch? What is gRPC? Or a database saga? Wouldn’t it be great if someone gathered all the terms associated with cloud-native computing and put them in one place, where developers could find, link to, and even update them? Well, guess what: Red Hat Developer […]
