For platform teams needing to operate GitOps as a service for their user community, a number of challenges and complexities arise. With everything from security, useability, standards and more up for consideration, it can be difficult for platform teams to get a handle on the considerations that need to be implemented for a successful service offering. In this session, we will review the practices and techniques that have been utilized by Organizations who have successfully implemented GitOps as a service at scale. In particular, this session will address many of the common pain points faced at all phases from the initial architecture to the implementation phases. Specifically, the following topics will be addressed: Organizational challenges in terms of establishing trust boundaries when designing an approach GitOps deployment models (Centralized, Hub-And-Spoke, Team based) and the pros/cons of each model Common service models (team owns GitOps versus platform team owns GitOps) that can be implemented and where each model works in terms of service users capabilities The significance of common GitOps standards and tooling and their traits Concrete example that can be implemented within attendees own environments
