At Banzai Cloud we strive to enable a secure software supply chain which ensures that applications deployed with the Pipeline platform and Pipeline Kubernetes Engine are secure, without reducing developer productivity across all environments (on-premise, multi-, hybrid-, and edge-cloud). While we have our own internal processes and a dedicated security team working full time on hardening the entire application platform stack, it also makes sense to provide confidence to our customers following industry standard benchmarks.

Two core features of the Pipeline platform are advanced security and observability for all Kubernetes deployments. We make sure that all secrets are securely stored, transported, images scanned, deployments monitored, and logs centrally collected. As you might expect from us, we use the industry standard in security components, such as Vault, Prometheus, Grafana, Fluent and more. This post is about monitoring Vault with Prometheus (on Kubernetes) and displaying metrics on Grafana.

Continuing our commitment to support all major cloud providers, today we are adding support for Oracle’s Kubernetes-managed cloud service, OKE – Oracle Kubernetes Engine in Pipeline. We are building a feature rich enterprise-grade application platform on top of Kubernetes - called Pipeline - to deliver a better DevOps experience by automating the lifecycle management of applications. This experience is now available to OKE users as well; here, we will guide you through the first steps of using OKE and summarize the benefits of using Pipeline.

For our Pipeline PaaS, monitoring is an essential part of operating distributed applications in production. We put a great deal of effort into monitoring large and federated clusters and automating these with Pipeline, so all our users receive out of the box monitoring for free. You can read about our monitoring series, below: Monitoring series: Monitoring Apache Spark with Prometheus Monitoring multiple federated clusters with Prometheus - the secure way Application monitoring with Prometheus and Pipeline Building a cloud cost management system on top of Prometheus Monitoring Spark with Prometheus, reloaded

At Banzai Cloud we secure our Kubernetes services using Vault and OAuth2 tokens. This has not always been the case, though we’ve had authentication in our project (even though it was basic) from a very early PoC stage - and we suggest that you do the same. Usually, inbound connections to Kubernetes cluster services are accessed via Ingress. Just to recap, public services are typically accessed through a loadbalancer service.
