You've heard of LAMP, JAM, and MEAN, but what is the PLONK stack? And why should you be considering it for your Cloud Native Applications instead of working directly with Kubernetes YAML?

The projects

PLONK is an acronym that stands for:

  • Prometheus - metrics and time-series
  • Linkerd - service mesh
  • OpenFaaS - management and auto-scaling of compute - PaaS/FaaS
  • NATS - asynchronous message bus / queue
  • Kubernetes - declarative, extensible, scale-out, self-healing clustering
