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 […]

OpenShift Router Sharding for Production and Development Traffic

OpenShift Router Sharding for Production and Development Traffic

As an OpenShift cluster grows by helping developers deliver features and applications faster, the efficiency of resource use becomes a central concern. Many OpenShift rollouts start with at least two physical clusters, one for development and one for production. While this has the perceived advantage of simplifying the mental model and some administrative aspects, OpenShift’s […]
