Welcome to the Kubernetes Architect January digest!
In this recap, you will find a curated collection of the best Kubernetes, GitOps and cloud-native articles, tutorials, libraries and tools republished in January.
In this article, you will learn how to monitor the HTTP requests to your apps in Kubernetes and define autoscaling rules to increase and decrease replicas for your workloads.
In this case study, you will learn how Alexandre & William designed and scaled a Kubernetes cluster to 250k concurrent users for a charity event.
In this article, you'll learn how to manage resources and capacity in Kubernetes.
- Set Resource Quotas for each namespace;
- Set LimitRanges for each namespace;
- Enforce rations between requests and limits.
This article aims to showcase some examples of how to design extensible controllers and operators for Kubernetes.
Popular apps can be vulnerable to traffic surges that overwhelm the APIs and cause cascade failures.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to use multiple Ingress Controllers to prevent Kubernetes apps and APIs from crashing.
In this case study, you will learn how the team at BlaBlaCar improved CPU sizing efficiency in their cluster from 25 to 53% and avoided wasting resources by getting a more elastic infrastructure.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to automatically schedule Kubeflow pipeline Pods from any number of namespaces on dedicated GKE node pools.
This post demonstrated how to create a continuous deployment pipeline to deploy applications in multiple EKS clusters running in different regions.
The accompanying CDK code creates EKS clusters and the CI/CD stack to continuously deploy applications.

This repo contains the implementation of a multi-cluster GitOps system on EKS.
Migrations-Operator is a Kubernetes operator to manage database migrations or similar application setup tasks.
mapkubeapis is a Helm v3 plugin which updates in-place Helm release metadata that contains deprecated or removed Kubernetes APIs to a new instance with supported Kubernetes APIs.
helm-decomposer decomposes Helm packages and visualizes the hierarchy of subcharts and images.
cdk8s is an open-source software development framework for defining Kubernetes applications and reusable abstractions using familiar programming languages and rich object-oriented APIs.
The Kubefirst CLI is a cloud provisioning tool that creates a kubernetes cluster with automated Infrastructure as Code, GitOps asset management and application delivery, secrets management, and more.
This plugin extends ArgoCD with:
- Composing multiple things together to form a single app from multiple directories.
- Helm + Kustomize just work.
- You can chain several plugins together.
- When used with application sets, you can apply Kustomizations.
- GitOps tools for Flux
