Weave Cloud Free Tier Available on Google Cloud Platform
January 08, 2018

Weaveworks announced a free tier of Weave Cloud for Google Cloud Platform users.

Any developer can sign up today, launch an app on Kubernetes and move quickly to tests, upgrades and operations. Weave Cloud for Google Kubernetes Engine adds delivery pipelines to Git repositories, release automation, monitoring and observability to enable application operations at scale.

Setting up a cluster, adding continuous integration (CI) and then continuous deployment (CD), hooking up monitoring, logging and management are critical to running production systems. Weave Cloud for GKE removes this complexity by providing a pre-integrated solution in one place with one coherent set of dashboards. This radically accelerates both the initial experience of getting an application running and simplifies the configuration and management of more advanced solutions.

Using the free tier of Weave Cloud gives developers everything they need to explore Kubernetes and start building cloud native container applications without cost or complexity. From this starting point, developers can easily scale to commercial production on Google Cloud Platform, or run apps on the Kubernetes clusters of their choice.

The benefits of Weave Cloud on GKE include:

- Setup of a complete Kubernetes cluster and CI/CD pipeline in minutes

- Faster rollouts, upgrades, audit and rollbacks

- Built-in metrics, alerts, insights and observability for Kubernetes apps

- Migration between Kubernetes cluster, even across multiple cloud providers and on-premises

- Use Git and pull requests for auditable and reliable roll out of configuration changes (not just for apps)

“The Weaveworks team is making it fast and simple for developers to get their Kubernetes cluster up and running on Google Kubernetes Engine, wiring up tools that work in the way developers expect,” said Aparna Sinha, ‎Group Product Manager ‎for Kubernetes at Google. “The philosophy of ‘operations by pull request’, known as GitOps, is very powerful and completely in line with Kubernetes design and makes it even easier for developers to start with Kubernetes today.”

Alexis Richardson, CEO at Weaveworks comments; “Customers want the power of Kubernetes, but they want to spend less time and effort getting there. With Weave Cloud on GKE any developer can connect up their Git repos and have an operations-ready application in minutes. We call it GitOps - the simplicity and speed of joining up build, deployment, monitoring and analytics in one place. Kubernetes is the future of application delivery and this is the missing piece.”

Weave Cloud is also offered as an upgrade subscription on Google Cloud Platform for developers and operations teams that are deploying and managing applications in production. This offers larger data storage, additional functionality and integration with other development tools. Weave Cloud is used today by a range of enterprises to build and run some of the most complex applications and microservices in production.
