Event based dependency manager for Kubernetes


Argo Events - The Event-Based Dependency Manager for Kubernetes

Go Report Card

What is Argo Events?

Argo Events is an open source event-based dependency manager for Kubernetes. The core concept of the project are

  • gateways which are implemented as a Kubernetes-native Custom Resource Definition that either produce the events internally or process the events that originate from outside the gateways

  • sensors which are implemented as a Kubernetes-native Custom Resource Definition that define a set of dependencies and trigger actions.

    • Define multiple dependencies from a variety of gateway sources
    • Build custom gateways to support business-level constraint logic
    • Trigger messages and Kubernetes object creation after successful dependency resolution
    • Trigger escalation after errors, or dependency constraint failures
    • Build and manage a distributed, cross-team, event-driven architecture
    • Easily leverage Kubernetes-native APIs to monitor dependencies

Why Argo Events?

  • Runtime agnostic. The first runtime and package agnostic event framework for Kubernetes.
  • Containers. Designed from the ground-up as Kubernetes-native.
  • Extremely lightweight. All gateways, with the exception of calendar-based gateways, are event-driven, meaning that there is no polling involved.
  • Configurable. Configure gateways at runtime
  • Scalable & Resilient.
  • Simple or Complex dependencies. Manage everything from simple, linear, real-time dependencies to complex, multi-source, batch job dependencies.
