GitOps in Kubernetes
Argo CD is a popular Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open source GitOps Kubernetes Operator for declarative configuration on Kubernetes clusters. Argo CD works based on the GitOps pattern of using Git repositories as the source of truth for defining the desired application state. Kubernetes manifests can be specified in several ways, such as Helm, customize, and plain JSON or YAML, among others. Argo CD automates deploying applications to multiple customers by syncing Kubernetes manifests to the target clusters and making sure the clusters are in the desired state.
