Check out our new training!

Over the last year our Professional Services team has helped many companies succeed at all stages of Kubernetes adoption. We’ve worked with teams just starting out with containers to organizations grappling with multi-cloud Kubernetes at scale.

We've taken these real-world experiences and crafted a set of training courses that help give your organization the boost it needs. From Kubernetes Fundamentals to Kubernetes Cluster Planning and Day-two Kubernetes Operations, we have a set of courses that map to your Kubernetes journey. In addition, we offer introductory and advanced courses for Deis open source tools like Helm and Workflow.

December 2016 Community Meeting

Welcome to the last Deis Community meeting of 2016! We've had a busy year. Together, we finished moving Workflow from CoreOS Linux + Fleet to Kubernetes, shipped a stable Kubernetes Helm, have started working towards a Kubernetes-native service broker in Steward, and launched our full portfolio of service and support options for Kubernetes.

Paired with the explosion of Kubernetes over the last year, the Deis mission has never been more exciting:

  • Deis Workflow: The best way to manage 12-factor applications on Kubernetes
  • Helm: The best way to manage Kubernetes-native applications
  • Steward: The best way to find, provision and use on and off-cluster services

In short, Deis open source projects make Kubernetes easy to use.

Focusing on Workflow, let's take a closer look at what the last month has brought us:

Helm 2.0 stable release!

Kubernetes Helm, the package manager for Kubernetes, has released the 2.0.0 version of software. Helm 2 gives teams the tools to collaborate when creating, installing, and managing applications inside of Kubernetes.

With Helm you can…

  • Find pre-packaged software (charts) to install and use
  • Easily create and host your own packages
  • Install packages into any Kubernetes cluster
  • Query the cluster to see what packages are installed and running
  • Update, delete, rollback, or view the history of installed packages

Helm includes two components: The Helm CLI tool, and an in-cluster release manager named Tiller. The Tiller component is responsible for tracking and managing installed packages.

Helm was the missing piece that enabled us to deploy our healthcare application to Kubernetes in a HIPAA-compliant way. It's also made our development/acceptance infrastructure much easier to manage. -- Sean Knox, Director of Engineering, Able Health
