Conan Accelerates Your C/C++ Applications in OpenShift

C/C++ applications and build system scripts are monolith in nature. Achieving binary compatibility is becoming extremely difficult as applications include source information from a variety of local and third party sources, targeting a variety of platforms. Even classically monolithic applications may include a complex dependency graph, including transitive dependencies statically or dynamically linked. Another factor […]

Automating Helm Charts with Ansible

The Automation Broker works in conjunction with the Kubernetes Service Catalog to make services and applications easily deployable. An end user selects a service to be provisioned, selects a “plan” that describes the level of service (small, large, paid, free, persistent, ephemeral, etc), and then provides any required parameters. In this scenario, Helm charts can […]

An Open Source Load Balancer for OpenShift

Introduction A highly-available deployment of OpenShift needs at least two load balancers: One to load balance the control plane (the master API endpoints) and one for the data plane (the application routers). In most on-premise deployments, we use appliance-based load balancers (such as F5 or Netscaler). The architecture looks like the following: In this architecture, […]
