Banzai Cloud announced today that it is collaborating with Oracle to bring its feature-rich application platform to Oracle Kubernetes Engine users. Banzai Cloud’s Pipeline deployment automation and execution engine enables developers to go from commit to scale in minutes by automating all the underlying tasks that provide convenient CI/CD flows, robust security, analytics and the ability to scale. The technology not only provides significant productivity gains to developers, but also increases operational efficiencies by aiding instance selection and automated introspection of large-scale workloads.

At Banzai Cloud we use Kafka internally a lot. We have some internal systems and customer reporting deployments where we rely heavily on Kafka deployed to Kubernetes. We practice what we preach and all these deployments (not just the external ones) are done using our application platform, Pipeline. There is one difference between regular Kafka deployments and ours (though it is not relevant to this post): we have removed Zookeeper and use etcd instead.

At Banzai Cloud we place a lot of emphasis on the observability of applications deployed to the Pipeline Platform, which we built on top of Kubernetes. To this end, one of the key components we use is Prometheus. Just to recap, Prometheus is: an open source systems monitoring and alerting tool a powerful query language (PromQL) a pull based metrics gathering system a simple text format for metrics exposition Problem statement Usually, legacy applications are not exactly prepared for these last two, so we need a solution that bridges the gap between systems that do not speak the Prometheus metrics format: enter exporters.

At Banzai Cloud we continue to work hard on the Pipeline platform we’re building on Kubernetes. We’ve open sourced quite a few operators already, and even recently teamed up with Red Hat and CoreOS to begin work on Kubernetes Operators using the new Operator SDK, and to help move human operational knowledge into code. The purpose of this blog will be to take a dive deep into the PVC Operator.

Banzai Cloud announced today that it will collaborate with Red Hat in an effort to help standardize the management of complex stateful applications on Kubernetes. Simultaneously, Red Hat announced the Operator Framework, an open source toolkit designed to manage application instances on Kubernetes in a more effective, automated, and scalable way. Banzai Cloud will work collaboratively with Red Hat on this open source project, which will focus on the creation of a new Software Development Kit (SDK) for the “operators” pattern.

At Banzai Cloud we’re always looking for new and innovative technologies that support our users in their transition to microservices deployed on Kubernetes, using Pipeline. In recent months we’ve partnered with CoreOS and RedHat to work on Kubernetes operators. That project was opensourced today, and is now available on GitHub. If you read through the rest of this blog, you’ll learn what an operator is, and how to use the operator sdk to develop an operator through a concrete example we developed, here, at Banzai Cloud.

This week KubeCon + CloudNativeCon, Copenhagen will bring together over 4000+ developers, architects and other members of the cloud native and open source communities under one roof. We at BanzaiCloud are part of these communities, as well as the CNCF landscape since we’re certified experts in these technologies and operating under the umbrella of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, so we can’t wait. Join us to learn about Kubernetes and its related technologies directly from industry experts.
