Doing my part to try and help gitops take over the world.
By targeting applications to install on a kubernetes cluster by fqdn, rather than ip address, it becomes possible to delete a cluster and stand up a new cluster, and watch as all the applications reinstall automatically to the new cluster via gitops using something like argocd.
Feature request submitted (vcenter clusterapi provider):
If implemented, this would enable all consumers of vmware vcenter / tanzu to better implement gitops.
Tempting to drop everything and be the one to implement the code and submit a pull request, just to get the credit. Would feel good to know you’ve helped so many people.
