#92: Infrastructure Drift

Welcome to this week's edition of DevOps Bulletin newsletter. Here's a roundup of the latest topics in the world of cloud infrastructure, Kubernetes, and continuous delivery.

First up, we take a look at managing drift in cloud infrastructure. Next, we delve into how Medium uses Kubernetes and a complete container network guide. I also cover several other important topics, including EC2 instance naming conventions, building CI/CD pipelines for single-page applications, optimizing AWS SQS queue configurations, and how FinOps empowers developers and reduces cloud spend.

If you're interested in learning from the experiences of others, I have a story about a $300K bill shock after an AWS account hacker. This cautionary tale highlights the importance of securing your cloud infrastructure.

In addition to these posts, I have some exciting open-source projects of the week. Kubeaudit helps you audit your Kubernetes clusters against common security controls, while Kubefirst is an open-source GitOps infrastructure & application delivery platform. Finally, I have a CLI that writes your Git commit messages for you with OpenAI's GPT-3 and more 🔥
Drift management in cloud infrastructure
Infrastructure drift occurs when the configuration of the infrastructure deviates from its IaC state. I've recently written a blog post about the various tools available for detecting and managing infrastructure drift.
