On how we think about and build infrastructure and why we chose +Kubernetes as the main building block
Giant Swarm’s goal is to build the simplest platform to professionally host your distributed applications. In pursuing this goal for the last few years we have worked with a lot of technologies in production and tested even more. From...

Running a dev environment on +Kubernetes
At Giant Swarm, I work on Microservice Infrastructure and a lot of my work is centered around improving how we run clusters as well as software on clusters. However, this work isn’t reflected in my local development environment — as...

And another one in our +Kubernetes primitives series, this time we talk about Services and Abstraction
Services are a basic concept that is especially useful when working with microservice architectures as they decouple individual services from each other.

Waiting for dependencies in +Kubernetes is not that complex
In a perfect world of microservices every part is aware that things can break. If some endpoint can't be reached it should just be retried after some time and repeated over and over. This connection problem will be monitored and...

Adding a gRPC engine to boost CoreOS fleet scalability and performance
Note: As the ecosystem has developed a lot over the last few years, we moved our user services away from fleet into Kubernetes running on a lightweight underlying fleet layer. However, with recent developments in Kubernetes and lightweight container engines...

Giant Swarm is “Remote First” and I put it to the test
When Giant Swarm hired me about a year ago I was totally overjoyed at the opportunity to work remotely. It presented me with a world of opportunity that until now I haven’t really taken full advantage of. At first...

Next in our +Kubernetes fundamentals series
The deployments object was added in Kubernetes 1.2 to allow for declarative management of pods. Here we explain why to use them and what for.

Morning everyone! Start the week with some #kubernetes testing. Here's some quick solutions for a local environment
At Giant Swarm we’re currently working on the next generation of our Microservice Infrastructure and I’m going to tell you a secret: It’s gonna be based on Kubernetes and fully-managed (yes, even the nodes) just like our...

Story
Tagline
Simple Microservice Infrastructure
Introduction
Simple Microservice Infrastructure, built for developers. 
Deploy your containers in seconds. 

Software tends to become very messy when businesses scale. In previous companies we ran hundreds of servers on AWS, managed metal, used diverse PaaS services in production such as Heroku and weren’t happy. For our next product we wanted to build our dream infrastructure first. Everyone we showed it wanted to have it too or to work with us on it. As we no longer could refuse these signs we setup Giant Swarm. 

We are working hard to deliver you your ultimate infrastructure as it should be – simple, instant, forever.
