Kubernetes adopters have realized the benefits of declarative APIs and the ability to leverage modern deployment practices such as GitOps for safe and repeatable application delivery. These teams naturally wish to apply these same processes and tools to manage infrastructure deployments. The Crossplane project extends Kubernetes to enable the provisioning of cloud infrastructure. Combined with Argo CD, they become a powerful infrastructure management dashboard. This talk covers the benefits of using Kubernetes as a control plane of your cloud infrastructure over Terraform and CloudFormation, such as native RBAC and seamless integration with other cloud-native tools. See how Akuity uses Argo CD and Crossplane to manage its production AWS infrastructure. Learn to leverage advanced Argo CD features (health checks, resource actions, extensions) to get the most out of your Crossplane installation. Implement best practices recommended directly from the project maintainers Upbound and Akuity.
