Kubernetes guardrails allow developers to work with Kubernetes securely, in compliance and cost-effectively so their code can reach production without falling into common pitfalls. Guardrails help enforce policies at the platform level so that developers do not even need to consider what Kubernetes configurations need to be done. Instead, they build and deploy code, with a safety net.
How do you implement Kubernetes guardrails? In this Cloud Native Live session, Andy Suderman, CTO and Stevie Caldwell, SRE Technical Lead at Fairwinds show how to implement Kubernetes guardrails with the open source tool Polaris. He will show attendees a working cluster, implement guardrails and then use Polaris to show how DevOps teams can automate remediation.
This is a great session for those managing multiple clusters across teams who need a way to maximize the benefits of Kubernetes for development teams.
