This week we received a question from a listener that asked a common question:
I was interested to know if you guys could talk a little more about the relationship between:
- OpenShift templates
- Helm templates
- CoreOS Operators
With all of the innovation happening within Kubernetes and around the Kubernetes ecosystem, sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with all the options for deploying applications to Kubernetes clusters. If you’re somewhat confused, you’re not alone. This is because there isn’t one official tool or method, and the right tool often depends on the role of the person (developer, operator) and where the application is being deployed (on-platform, off-platform, etc.). We discuss why the different options exist, walk through many of the options, and try to explain why some tools or frameworks might be a better fit for certain functions within your organization.
