Configuration as Data, GitOps, and Controllers: it’s not simple for multi-cluster

One big benefit of using a declarative configuration approach, or “configuration as data” as Kelsey Hightower says, is understanding the intent of the desired end state of a system.

How to update CORS policies without re-deploying your API

In a Kubernetes-native world, people building and deploying microservices need to consider many things. One important thing to consider is Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS), which enables browsers to load resources from different servers or instances. CORS plays a vital role when a user interface (UI) talks to an application programming interface (API), as it controls […]
