Introducing SchemaHero

At Replicated, we believe that all software should be built to support modern on-prem installations. Most software requires at least one database, and reliable, automated database schema management is essential for application updates. To help enable this, we are introducing a new open source project named SchemaHero, available on GitHub today. SchemaHero is a Kubernetes

Hands on with AWS Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes

Amazon’s long-awaited Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS) is here, which means everybody operating in the world of cloud-native applications and Amazon Web Services should probably develop at least a baseline understanding of what it does and how it works. Replicated is no exception: lots of end-users deploy Replicated-powered applications on AWS, and we’re continuously

Build applications with Kubernetes, deliver to enterprise customers with Replicated

Docker containers and Kubernetes have already changed the way that applications are packaged and developed, but that’s only a part of their total promise. The driving principle behind Replicated is that they will also change the way enterprises consume applications—by eliminating the false choice between antiquated, complex on-prem software and modern, scalable, simple-to-manage software as

How we’re using GraphQL and Apollo at Replicated

In recent months we’ve been making the transition from using REST APIs to using GraphQL, which has enhanced our development workflow in a variety of ways. If you haven’t heard of GraphQL, it’s an open-source data query language that allows you to request multiple types of data, all using a single endpoint. In addition to

Great tooling plays an important part in helping everyone reach this happy place. We are excited to announce the release of the Replicated Platform CLI. This touch of tooling helps teams iterate and release new

Even smaller Docker image sizes

In one of our recent posts, we looked at some of the core strategies for reducing a docker image size. Since then, new ways to reduce an image size have emerged, enabling even faster distribution of images and startup times. In this post, I’m going to set up a common scenario: a Dockerfile that builds

Custom preflight checks

Out of the box, Replicated always runs a set of preflight checks when your application is first installed or when any update is being installed. We check to make sure the server(s) and the environment running Replicated meets our minimum requirements and we offer some options to configure this to allow application developers the control

Replicated with less privileges

When deploying a secure system it is important to ensure that each component only has access to the lowest level of privileges needed to perform its task. This concept should apply to any access in a system, including the user account and file system permissions need to spawn processes successfully. Replicated runs in Docker containers
