Customers need to build, deploy, and manage their internal cloud platforms while ensuring security and resiliency for their cloud-native applications. In doing so, they can successfully manage releases and shift security left through trusted delivery using Policy as Code.

In this session, we’ve partnered with Weaveworks to showcase how to effectively manage application delivery while maintaining a high level of security using Weave GitOps and Upbound. Managing a stateful application deployment with a relational database, Weave GitOps can recognize if there is a policy violation and correct it before deploying the application. This is all made possible with Weave GitOps and Upbound’s Universal Crossplane. Using familiar Git workflows, Weave Policy-as-Code enables application engineers to quickly deliver new features safely.
