Automated TLS with cert-manager and Let’s Encrypt for Kubernetes
Jessica Grebenschikov, ReactiveOps
Did you ever dream of the day where there would be free TLS certs that were automatically created and renewed when a new service shows up?
cert-manager is a service that automatically creates and manages TLS certs in Kubernetes. If you’re using Kubernetes in production, check out how to setup cert-manager in a Kubernetes cluster with free TLS certificates from Let’s Encrypt.
Autoscaling Your Kubernetes Service
Scott Ringwelski, Handshake
Kubernetes provides a lot of out of the box tools for autoscaling but if you’re running a highly available system where errors, timeouts, or downtime are unacceptable then there is a bit more digging required. Check out these steps to get autoscaling in a highly available system on Kubernetes working.
