VSHN.timer #193: Kubernetes and OpenShift Operators

31. Jul 2023

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about the latest and most useful Kubernetes Operators that have recently appeared on our radar.

1. Red Hat and GitLab have partnered together to release an officially certified GitLab OpenShift Operator, and this article provides all the information you need to install it on your cluster.


2. The Tailscale Kubernetes operator allows you to expose services in your Kubernetes cluster to your Tailscale network, and use an authentication proxy for secure connectivity to the Kubernetes control plane. We’re big fans of Tailscale at VSHN!


3. Technology accounts for a staggering 1.6 billion tons of greenhouse gas emissions! The kube-green operator helps reduce the CO2 footprint of your Kubernetes and OpenShift clusters.


4. This operator automates the extension of operator watch and service account permission scope to other namespaces in an OpenShift cluster.


5. The Oria Operator provides tooling that allows cluster admins and operator authors to control which namespaces an operator reconciles resource events in.


Are you controlling the CO2 emissions of your Kubernetes and OpenShift clusters? Have you developed your own operators? Would you like to share some other smooth operators with our readers? Get in touch with us, and see you next week for another edition of VSHN.timer.
