Lightning Talk: GitOps Sustainability with Flux and arm64 - Tamao Nakahara, Weaveworks

Honeycomb has experimented with and discussed the improved performance and cost savings by moving from x86 to arm64. In particular, at AWS re:Invent in December 2022, when Amazon announced the AWS Graviton2 processor that uses arm64, Liz Fong-Jones at Honeycomb explored the changes needed to make workloads reliant upon native x86 and their toolchains to work.

Flux users looking to gain these types of performance and financial benefits were excited to know that Flux supports arm64 and many started to make the move. They have been reporting back the cost savings and sustainability- especially as the larger Cloud Native community prioritizes environmental sustainability through initiatives in the CNCF GitOps WG as well as the new Environmental Sustainability TAG.

If you’d like to do the same, this talk will cover the specific steps to recompile your workloads to work with arm64, and best practices shared from Flux users to make sure that you gain essential GitOps benefits with the switch.
