Argo and Flux are popular Continuous Deployment (CD) tools used to support GitOps deployments. Each tool on its own has thousands of satisfied users, but when integrated together they provide an even more robust solution for GitOps.

Flamingo is a tool that facilitates the integration of Flux and Argo. In the below video you can see how Flamingo harnesses the strengths of both FluxCD and ArgoCD, providing an efficient and comprehensive solution for GitOps on K8s clusters.  You can also see how Flamingo integrates with OpsMx Intelligent Software Delivery (ISD), which offers extensions to open source Argo and Flux. These add-ons offer greater visibility and insights into deployments, greater security and governance capabilities, delivery intelligence, and audit reporting.

What is Flamingo?

Flamingo is a Flux Subsystem for Argo (FSA). Flamingo acts as a user interface layer for Flux when integrated with Argo CD. 

Why use Flamingo?

Flamingo is a tool that combines Flux and Argo to provide the best of both worlds for implementing GitOps on Kubernetes clusters. Flamingo is primarily used to:

  1. Automate GitOps Deployments in a more efficient way
  2. Combine the automation capabilities of Flux with the UI and management of Argo

With Flamingo, you can:

Automate the deployment of your applications to Kubernetes clusters and benefit from the improved collaboration, deployment speed, and reliability that GitOps offers.

Enjoy a seamless and integrated experience for managing deployments, with the automation capabilities of Flux embedded inside the user-friendly interface of Argo CD.

Take advantage of additional features and capabilities that are not available in either Flux or Argo CD individually, such the robust Helm support from Flux, Flux OCI Repository, Weave GitOps Terraform Controller for Infrastructure as Code, Weave Policy Engine, or Argo CD ApplicationSet for Flux-managed resources.

What is GitOps?

GitOps is the goto model for DevOps engineers and application developers to manage and maintain their kubernetes deployments in an automated and efficient manner. The GitOps methodology relies on storing the desired state of the application and infrastructure as code in Git and then using an automation tool to apply those changes to the target environment. GitOps provides an operational framework for DevOps teams and architects to automate the deployment and management of applications in a repeatable and reliable manner.
