Configure Keptn via the new Helm umbrella chart

In the dynamic world of cloud-native and microservices, installation and continuous upgrades of distributed systems is a priority. Embarking on a journey into the world of containerized applications often leads us into a labyrinth of configuration and deployment intricacies. Amidst this complexity, Helm charts emerge as the guiding light, streamlining the orchestration of Kubernetes-based applications.

In this article, we're delving into the topic of Helm charts, in particular Umbrella charts - an approach that simplifies the deployment and maintenance of microservice application architectures. Let's uncover how these consolidated charts pave the way for smoother deployments, enhance scalability, and bring harmony to the orchestration of complex Kubernetes environments.

2023 Keptn Year in Review

Hello and Happy New Year from the entire Keptn Team. We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that you’re all having a wonderful 2024 so far! We’d like to take a moment to reflect back on what a great year 2023 was for Keptn and what we're looking forward to in 2024!

The biggest news for the project in 2023 was probably the maturing of the cloud native Keptn, with the former subproject named Keptn Lifecycle Toolkit officially becoming Keptn in August 2023, and the end-of-life (EOL) for Keptn v1. We focused on having Keptn be a 100% cloud native, opinionated way of delivering Kubernetes apps and it was important for us to implement the “big pillars” of Keptn v1: supporting the metrics component of the Keptn v1 quality gates feature, observability (new), and deployments by defining KeptnTasks & Evaluations to execute any container the user provides and extending deployments (job executor service in Keptn v1).
