This week: New Magalix Documentation, More Cloud-Native Community Articles, and a COVID-19 Donation!

Hey ,

This week: We've got a ton of fresh updates for you.

Two weeks ago, we released the new version of Magalix. Feeling overwhelmed and confused by resource optimization in Kubernetes? We have just the ticket. Check out our Resource Automation features and upgrade your cluster with our 14-day free trial.

Need more info? We also released updates to our documentation here.

We continue to grow our Cloud-Native Expert Community through the Write for Cloud-Native Program. Check out this week's article, on deploying a NodeJS server on Kubernetes, here.

In addition, we made our second $100 donation to COVID-19 Relief, as we're matching every payment to our Community Experts with donations to GiveDirectly.

We're in the process of setting up a dashboard that will make all of our donations and tracking transparent for the community, but in the meantime, we will document our (and your!) contributions to this effort.

If you'd like to level up the cloud-native community's knowledge while supporting a great cause, apply to Write for Cloud-Native today. Thanks for reading!
