Current location: Zaragoza, Spain About me     My first computer was a ZX Spectrum 48K when I was four (it was actually my brother’s computer) and it amazed me so much that I still can remember the hundreds of hours passed in front of it. Some years later, I disassembled it to its last piece to see how it was done. Curiosity and discovery have been the main driving for ..read more

Welcome to Giant Swarm's New Joiners Series where we get to know some of the newest members of the Swarm. This week, we meet Dominik Kress. ? Role: Product Owner Most used Slack emoji: Current location: Berlin, Germany  About me I started my career as a developer at a huge European retail enterprise. Coming fresh from university, I thought that every company was using agile methods, product ownership, and DevOps. But, well, they didn’t. So, early on, I started getting interested not just in programming and configuring and hosting things but also in trying to enable teams to have mo ..read more

Cloud native predictions for 2023 » Giant Swarm

1M ago
This year was impressive, to say the least. I'll touch on some of 2022's achievements when I revisit my previous predictions. However, in a nutshell, we're working with people, and people need to have social gatherings. In other words, we went to many events, from KubeCon and reInvent to ContainerConf and many more. Importantly, it also means that we got to party together — look no further than our legendary KubeCon Giant Party for evidence. To get our growing teams together, we also rented our first-ever Giant Mansion for three months and brought the entire company togethe ..read more

Getting Things Done the Giant Swarm way » Giant Swarm

If we believe in something, we believe it all the way: our people, our customers, and our potential. We believe in the microservices architecture so much that we replicate it everywhere. Our team structure is case and point. In essence, large applications (goals) are separated into smaller independent parts (teams), which have their own autonomy (roadmap) and responsibilities yet work together towards a shared vision. This isn’t an entirely unique approach; however, we don’t prize novelty (only when it comes to our Giant Swarm Swag). We prize commitment, hardcore focus, and the ability to iter ..read more

Change as part of the platform’s DNA » Giant Swarm

by

Survival of the fittest The market demands more and more speed in business demands and innovation. This inevitably leads to more complexity and dynamics in the operation of IT platforms. The traditional view of 24/7 availability is no longer geared to agile environments. As a result, providing reliable 24/7 is increasingly becoming a challenge for platform teams. 24/7 availability must therefore be rethought. Instead of aversion to possible incidents, you need to embrace disruptions and handle them as part of your DNA instead of avoiding them at all costs and thereby reducing the speed of inno ..read more

New: OpenStack with Cluster API » Giant Swarm

Background Since the advent of cloud computing, there have been predictions about the end of use cases for on-premises data centers. Yet, we continue to see major organizations across many verticals opting for multi-cloud scenarios. Often, one of the clouds is a 'private cloud' or, in other words, on-prem. On-prem is alive and not going anywhere That said, many organizations want to get on the cloud native bandwagon to reap the associated benefits. These benefits include resilience, agility, and productivity. Besides, in a multi-cloud world, portability is also a desired benefit. However, thes ..read more

An icon for GitOps, free to use » Giant Swarm

by
3M ago
Infrastructure as Code and GitOps are becoming more and more important for Giant Swarm and for our users. And our user experience evolves to incorporate the concept. Recently, we were looking for a solution for our web UI to indicate visually that a resource is managed through GitOps. This is significant, as it means that users cannot modify or delete these resources via the web UI (as these changes would otherwise simply get reverted based on what's in the git repository). We noticed that there was no icon that made us happy. Based on what Google image search yields for the term, we are not t ..read more

At Giant Swarm, Kubernetes is central to all that we do. That means that we care very much about the content, quality, and expressiveness of the multitude of APIs that Kubernetes offers to get things done. We have a vested interest, and so we actively participate in the community in order to help improve the core APIs. And, when we need to, we also extend Kubernetes with our own APIs. One API that we and our customers use a lot is the Ingress API. It facilitates the routing of external traffic to the services running in-cluster, according to rules defined in Ingress resource definitions. Unfor ..read more
