How to Apply GitOps on Infrastructure (for Real)

Wednesday, June 02, 2021 - 10:30 am11:15 am

Viktor Farcic, Shipa


When managing infrastructure today, we have a few requirements beyond the obvious ones, such as defining everything as code.

  • It should be based on GitOps principles
  • It should detect drifts automatically and converge the actual (infra) into the desired (Git) state automatically
  • It should be based on a common API, potentially the same one we are using for managing other states (e.g., applications)

In this session, we will explore Crossplane combined with Argo CD as a potential solution for all our infrastructure needs and see whether it fits into the broader Kubernetes ecosystem.
