While many platform-level operational tasks have been automated with Kubernetes and operators, managing individual microservices and applications is often still a highly manual task. Even cloud-native applications often rely on runbooks and hand-crafted pipelines. In many cases, these practices even differ from application to application.
The Dynatrace innovation lab saw the same problem and built an open-source fabric for autonomous declarative operations called Keptn (pronounced “Captain.") Keptn provides a ready-to-use framework for GitOps-based pipelines, standardized deployment models, monitoring and operations as a service. Keptn also allows automating operational tasks with runbook automation and self-healing. With Keptn, Developers can focus on code instead of creating YAML files, DevOps can focus on tools instead of building pipelines, SREs can enforce processes instead of debugging problems. We have recently released Keptn 0.4.0 (http://keptn.sh) and plans are underway to submit the project for incubation within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (https://www.cncf.io/).
In this talk, we will share information on:
- WHY we've built Keptn
- its technical underpinnings
- share current project status
- discuss how the community could help!
The talk also has live demos of onboarding an application comprised of Spring Boot application services and deploying through a multi-stage pipeline orchestrated by Keptn.
We would like to thank our Food Sponsor, Rocket Insights
