How to deploy Rabbit MQ on Kubernetes

Reading Time: 3 minutes RabbitMQ is message broker which follows AMQP protocol.One of the most important component of Rabbit MQ is broker. The brokers has the responsibility of storing the messages which the producers publish to the message queue. The Consumers consume the message from the broker and send an acknowledgement. Once the broker receives the acknowledgement, the messages are deleted. So, the main focus is to deploy a Continue Reading


How to implement Chaos Engineering using Kube Invaders

Reading Time: 3 minutes Chaos Engineering is the practice of performing random experiments to disturb the equilibrium of the deployment environment. Thus, this aims to check if an application is fault tolerant and highly available. The important reason behind Chaos engineering is to create highly available applications. Engineers use chaos engineering to cause chaos, random destructive operations in the deployment environment. This helps the engineers to reproduce many real-time Continue Reading
