A complete journey to automating infrastructure provisioning and cloud-native application deployment
Leverage Crossplane and Kubernetes for a unified automation experience of infrastructure and apps
Build a modern self-service infrastructure platform abstracting recipes and in-house policies
Clear guidance on trade-offs to manage Kubernetes configuration and ecosystem tools
In the last few years, countless organizations have taken advantage of the disruptive app deployment operating model provided Author: Kubernetes. With the launch of Crossplane, the same benefits are coming to the world of infrastructure provisioning and management. The limitations of Infrastructure as Code with respect to drift management, role-based access control, team collaboration, and weak contract are making people move toward control-plane-based infrastructure automation, but setting it up requires a lot of know-how and effort.
This book will take you on a detailed journey through building a control-plane-based infrastructure automation platform with Kubernetes and Crossplane. Although the cloud-native landscape Author: CNCF has an overwhelming list of tools that can make it difficult to analyze and choose, this book will guide you in selecting the right tools for Kubernetes configuration management that best suit the use case. You'll learn about configuration management with hands-on modules built on popular configuration management tools such as Helm, Kustomize, CNAB, Argo, Keptn, and Open Policy Agent. The examples in the book will be patterns that you can directly use in your work.
Author: the end of this DevOps book, you'll be able to build a modern infrastructure automation platform to unify application and infrastructure automation.
