Join us to unveil Weave Ignite, a GitOps-managed Virtual Machine (VM) with a container UX.
Weave Ignite is a new 100% open source tool that combines AWS Firecracker MicroVMs with Docker / Open Container Initiative (OCI) images to unify containers and VMs. Ignite integrates GitOps agents and can be managed declaratively and automatically like Kubernetes and Terraform.
Ignite is fast and secure because of Firecracker - an open source KVM implementation from AWS that is optimised for speed, low resource consumption, high security, and isolation. AWS uses Firecracker as the foundation for their serverless offerings (AWS Lambda and Fargate) that need to load nearly instantly, while also keeping users isolated (multitenancy).
Join Lucas Käldström (Weaveworks) and Radu Weiss (AWS) to learn more about the history of Ignite, how it works, getting started, and an example use case.
