07. Helm as Kubernetes application manager

Date: 2018-05-23




Valamis needs a way to manage Kubernetes resource files configuration.


Helm is used to formalize Valamis configuration of Kubernetes as it's having good momentum as the time of this writing and is backed by CNCF.

From their site:

Helm helps you manage Kubernetes applications — Helm Charts helps you define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes application.


We'll have a centralized repo with Valamis Helm Chart that can be used to deploy required Valamis components to Kubernetes cluster.

Helm has a dependency management that can be used to install Valamis dependencies like databases as ready-made charts.
