You are probably tired of all the bullshit - zero downtime, infrastructure on one click, kubernetes magic, 99.9999% SLA, you name it. We know the buzz. And we don’t follow it.
Your business needs will be solved with the right kind of technology and tooling. Not with tools that are just trendy.
We believe in great design! It is an investment that pays off.
Pipetail focuses on container workloads on Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform as certified professionals.
We provide consulting, implementation and training services.
“Pipetail is a great partner in ShipMonk’s infrastructure. They helped with overall cluster stability, documentation, processes and CI/CD. Their expertise in Kubernetes and AWS is priceless.”
“I picked pipetail when randomly searching for experienced Cloud Architects to help us define project's new technical phase. Picking them was more than clearly the jackpot. Excellent technical skill combined with clear communication and on time delivery are just a tip of the iceberg of pipetail's values. Very open, honest and to the point the whole time - looking forward to our future cooperation! Don't hesitate to pick pipetail for any kind of project, you'll be satisfied - guaranteed.”
“I worked with Marek on Kubernetes implementation for our GoOut.net event platform. Marek was a pleasure to work with and after a while I just preferred to work only with him. His way of working is just how it should be. I found when working between companies, the most important part is communication and that is something Marek handles as well as the implementation itself.”
“Marek helped us at Spendee with migration of backend to Kubernetes and we were very pleased working with him. We did not get a blackbox "suite-them-all" solution. Instead Marek guided us through the implementation process the way we were able to understand the entire solution and it suits the best our needs.”
“I worked with Marek on multiple projects on Google Cloud Platform and Kubernetes. Marek is humble and knowledgable guy always willing to help and find the best solution for customer needs. I always liked that he is able not to just design excellent technological solutions but also present them to critical stakeholders. Nice to work with you, hope to get another chance for the same in the future.”
“Marek helped us with Infrastructure as Code during our migration to Google Cloud Platform. He executed the technical part as well as an on-site workshop to transfer the knowledge to our internal teams. Marek could answer every question in detail proving to be a very experienced consultant.”
We know cloud is hard. And it might get expensive. It is not easy to understand how the cloud pricing works.
Pipetail is a team of guys and girls who are tired of all the bs around “corporate IT”.
Talk at meetups
One step ahead of the buzz
We had the chance to see quite a bit of clusters in our years of experience with kubernetes (both managed
and unmanaged - on GCP, AWS and Azure), and we see some mistakes being repeated.
No shame in that, we’ve done most of these too!
I'll try to show the ones we see very often and talk a bit about how to fix them.
We've spent most of the last month on implementing EKS. Surprisingly, we're always
solving the same concerns no matter what project we're working on.
Here's couple of tips for your EKS clusters! Kube2iam is amazing tool. I really like it and it helped me with granular control access in couple of projects.
However, there's a better solution that is supported out of the box: IAM roles for services accounts.
As you might already know, security is not something that a specialized department should be responsible for. Instead, we all should bear in mind that security matters and build secure solutions from the very beginning. Today we're gonna talk about some practices in the world of containerized apps and Kubernetess. So let's say we have some best practices for the containerized workloads. But how to enforce that? We'll tell you right away.Read More
