Composable and Repeatable Platforms as Code on Kubernetes

Challenges for teams adopting Kubernetes

How to go from zero to production on Kubernetes faster?

Managing growing footprint with low to no internal expertise

How do I ensure quality of Kubernetes community extensions?

How can I get support on Kubernetes community extensions?

Kubernetes Extendibility

One of the key reasons for Kubernetes's popularity is it's extendibility. Kubernetes API extensions, also known as Operators, extend Kubernetes API to manage third-party software as native Kubernetes objects.

400+ Operators on GitHub

for various platform elements like 

Kafka, Spark, MySQL, Postgres, MongoDB, MySQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, TensorFlow …

KubePlus - Kubernetes Operator Aggregator

Kubernetes Operator Aggregator designed to deliver Platforms as-Code

Kubernetes Operators curation service (recommendation, enrichment, customization of Operators) 

Platform kit (assembly, discovery, troubleshooting and management of Operators)

KubePlus Advantage

No new CLI

KubePlus does not introduce any new CLI. Teams use kubectl and Kubernetes YAMLs to create platforms as Code. 

One platform experience

Our Operator guidelines and validation ensure one platform experience with uniform discovery, documentation and support across multiple Operators.

Eliminate ad-hoc scripts

Kubernetes Operators embed platform specific workflows as Kubernetes objects and eliminate out-of-band custom automation.

What is Platform-as-Code?

Platform as Code is the process of aggregating multiple Kubernetes Operators for the purpose of creating and managing platforms declaratively using native Kubernetes interfaces (kubectl & Kubernetes YAML), rather than ad-hoc scripts or new CLIs. 

Operational Efficiency with Platform-as-Code

Composable, Repeatable and Shareable Application Platforms as Code

  • Compose your application platforms using enterprise-ready Kubernetes API extensions (Operators). 
  • Repeatably create application platforms as Code with Kubernetes YAML definition. 
  • Share platform definition YAMLs among team members.

What are people saying?

"I like the idea of KubePlus reducing some of the complexity and bringing consistency where it is badly needed."

- Systems Analyst and Consultant

 "KubePlus can lower the complexity in creating end to end stateful applications ready for production."

- DevOps & CI/CD team leader

"New trend: Platform-as-Code, an evolution of IaaS and PaaS that decreases vendor lock-in by implementing and adopting cloud platform dependencies in declarative way. I think companies that will specialize in delivering on-premise solutions in this space will compete in the next decade."

- Facebook post by an Enterprise Architect

"KubePlus can give me the flexibitlity to manage lifecycle events  (like post-startup db validations, replica additions to mongodb replica sets, kafka custom rebalancing etc.) at the top-level rather than lower level of docker images."
