Containers

In a previous post I demonstrated how to quickly get a FlexDeploy installation up and running with Oracle Kubernetes Engine. The approach, while quick, simply won’t scale in the long run. Anything from a new user not knowing the process or deploying the wrong image tag could hinder your deployments.  Because of these issues we

Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) is a Developer Service in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure that expedites the provisioning and managing of 1 or more Kubernetes Clusters. In effect, this allows deploying and running an application on a cloud provided K8s engine a snap. To demonstrate just how quick it can be the following post is

Every business is competing in an environment that is constantly changing. To keep up with the increasing customer demands for speed and quality while controlling costs, IT leaders are adopting DevOps, CI/CD, and release automation. Deployment strategies are one way to release changes faster, eliminate downtime, and reduce the risk of deployment failure. There are

With the release of FlexDeploy 5.2, we now have the ability to automate K8s Deployment Strategies as well as more native support for K8s. Because of this, we unfortunately have to say goodbye to the Helm Tab to make room for K8! This blog will require you to have a working knowledge of K8s and

We’ve all been there. An update is rolling out, all pre-flight checks are green, and yet everything falls apart after the update is released. Anyone in this position then inevitably asks the common question: “How can we avoid this?” Enter K8s Deployment Strategies. Check out the FlexDeploy integration if you already have a handle on

Continuous Improvements In the spirit of “continuous”, Flexagon has released a bunch of enhancements, usability improvements, and bug fixes over the past two month. FlexDeploy is our DevOps platform for CI/CD and release automation which automates and orchestrates the entire build, deploy, and release lifecycle. FlexDeploy is an open and extensible platform with lots of plugins for commercial and open source

The Problem “Did you get the application I sent you?” “Yeah, it doesn’t work.” “It runs fine on my machine.” I am sure we have all had multiple conversations that can be summed up with these three lines. When running applications within different environments, there are bound to be some issues with differing environments and

In one of my previous posts I described how FlexDeploy can automate building and deploying microservices with Docker containers. One of the most popular deployment platforms in containers world is Kubernetes. The deployment of a microservice to a K8s cluster might become challenging as it is related to creating a number of various K8s resources

There is exciting news for those who develop FlexDeploy plugins. So exciting, we’re adding another post to our FlexDeploy Loves Containers Blog series.

Containers, led by Docker, burst onto the IT scene in 2013. In the five-plus years since, container technology has reshaped the software development landscape. The shift began with a breakdown of applications into lightweight, independent, and deployable software packages. Since each container includes everything it needs – code, runtime, system tools and settings, plus all
