Get in touch with us, or delve into the details of the latest release. Service interruptions caused by outages can have severe business consequences, so it’s important that we build, run and test resilient systems. Resiliency can be implemented and tested at multiple levels, from the bottom infrastructure layer all the way to the application.

One of the main features of the Banzai Cloud Pipeline platform is that it allows enterprises to run cost effective workloads by mixing spot and preemptible instances with regular ones, and without sacrificing overall reliability. First, let’s dig into some of the components that make spot instances so reliable, then we’ll provide an example of a Pipeline control plane installation, submit some workloads and simulate a spot instance termination.

Get in touch with us, or delve into the details of the latest release. Service mesh probably needs no introduction. But, just to recap, let’s define it as a highly configurable, dedicated and low‑latency infrastructure layer designed to handle and provide reliable service-to-service communication, implemented as lightweight network proxies deployed alongside application code.

Check out Backyards in action on your own clusters: curl https://getbackyards.sh | sh && backyards install -a --run-demo What to know more? Get in touch with us, or delve into the details of the latest release. Hybrid- and multi-cloud are quickly becoming the new norm for enterprises, just as service mesh is becoming essential to the cloud native computing environment. From the very beginning, the Pipeline platform has supported multiple cloud providers and wiring them together at multiple levels (cluster, deployments and services) was always one of the primary goals.

Check out Backyards in action on your own clusters: curl https://getbackyards.sh | sh && backyards install -a --run-demo What to know more? Get in touch with us, or delve into the details of the latest release. Last week we released our open source Istio operator designed to help ease the sometimes difficult task of managing Istio. One of the main feature of the operator is its ability to manage a single mesh multi-cluster Istio.

Enterprises often use heterogenous clusters to deploy their applications to Kubernetes, because those applications usually have needs that involve special scheduling constraints. Pods may require nodes that have special hardware, that are isolated, or that are colocated with other pods running within a system. To help our customers solve these problems, the Banzai Cloud Pipeline platform uses nodepools. A nodepool is a subset of node instances within a cluster with the same configuration, however, the overall cluster can contain multiple nodepools as well heterogenous nodes/configurations.

One of the main features of the Banzai Cloud Pipeline platform is that it allows enterprises to run workloads cost effectively by mixing spot or preemptible instances with regular ones, without sacrificing overall reliability. The platform allows enterprises to develop, deploy and scale container-based applications and it leverages best-of-breed cloud components, such as Kubernetes, to create a highly productive yet flexible environment for developers and operation teams alike. tl;dr The Banzai Cloud Pipeline platform switched to a unified, cloud-aware spot instance termination handler to properly drain the cluster node and provide information to the monitoring system if an instance is going to be preempted from a cluster nodepool.
