Episode 440: Alexis Richardson on gitops

Filed in Episodes by on December 24, 2020 0 Comments

Alexis Richardson of WeaveWorks discusses gitops.  GitOps is a deployment model for infrastructure and applications in which commits are approved and landed in a git repository, and a deployment agent continuously applies the latest commit from the repository to production.  Host Robert Blumen spoke with Richardson about the origins of the gitops approach, at what scale do Jenkins jobs and build scripts break; the separation of the front end process for landing commits and the back end for applying them; the concept of convergent infrastructure; applying infrastructure as code to deployments; how gitops enabled WeaveWorks to recover from a wipeout of their entire infrastructure; the flux open source project; and how gitops can help with complex regulatory compliance requirements.
