What is Platform-as-Code

Platform-as-Code approach enables teams to codify their enterprise workflows (like SaaS, AI, Analytics, CI/CD) leveraging disparate Kubernetes Custom APIs.

Kubernetes Custom Resources

KubePlus API add-on

KubePlus API add-on is designed to augment existing declarative application management constructs in Kubernetes, like Kubernetes YAML or Helm, to primarily serve the unique requirements around Custom APIs / Resources. It enables discovery & binding of Custom APIs/ Resources to orchestrate platform workflows in Kubernetes YAMLs.

Ultimate application portability without any vendor lock-in

Postpone your cloud or Kubernetes provider decision.

Kubernetes's open and extensible nature along with its wide adoption across hosting providers enables enterprises to postpone their cloud or Kubernetes vendor choice until they are ready for production deployment.  This is possible only if your platform stack is Kubernetes Native in nature without attachment to any proprietary CLIs/UIs. 

Hybrid multi-cloud application portability

Transfer your workloads across hybrid multi-cloud environments easily.

Due to composable and declarative nature of Platform-as-Code approach, enterprises can easily create their platform stacks on any Kubernetes cluster. This simplifies transfer or recreation of workloads across hybrid multi-cloud environments or dev / test / prod environments.

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."
