Kubernetes with Cilium – Challenges

This is the third post in the Kubernetes with Cilium series that I am writing as I work towards running Kubernetes in my Home SDDC environment. The first two posts covered deploying a Kubernetes cluster with Cilium as the CNI, and deploying Hubble to visualize the relationships between containers deployed as a service within a Kubernetes cluster. My purpose in […]

Kubernetes with Cilium & Hubble

The first post in the series showed how to deploy Cilium as the CNI plugin for a Kubernetes cluster. This post will focus on bringing Hubble online within the cluster to assist in the visualization of the cluster and the deployments running on it. Cilium has provided decent documentation on Hubble that can be accessed on the GitHub site. Hubble […]

Kubernetes with Cilium

The Home SDDC Lab is fully online and operational now, so I’ve begun deploying different Kubernetes clusters, leveraging different CNA projects. The plan is to get better exposure to what the community projects offer before I dive deeper into the VMware Tanzu offerings. After deploying a rather vanilla Kubernetes 1.17.4 cluster with Flannel, I embarked on the journey of leveraging […]

AWS S3 Backups for vCenter Server Appliance

This post is the third one in a series on how to setup an AWS Storage Gateway VM, configure NSX-T Manager backups with S3, and configuring vCenter Server Appliance backups. The key difference between how to leverage the S3 bucket, through the AWS Storage Gateway VM, for the vCenter Server Appliance is that it goes over NFS. If you read […]

AWS S3 Backups for NSX-T

This post is a continuation on how to leverage an AWS Storage Gateway tied to an S3 Bucket for backing up the NSX-T Manager. As I previously noted, this was a handy way to backup the NSX-v Manager back in 2018 when I first started working with Ansible. With the new iteration of my Home SDDC Lab, I wanted to […]
