D2iQ unveils version 2.0 of the Kubernetes platform to power applications on any infrastructure
SAN FRANCISCO, September 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – D2iQ, a leading independent platform for Kubernetes, today announced version 2.0 of the D2iQ Kubernetes (DKP) platform. DKP 2.0 builds on the industry-leading adoption of the open source Cloud Native Computing Foundation Cluster (CNCF) Cluster API (CAPI) standard, enabling organizations to more easily deploy, manage and scale workloads. Kubernetes work in production environments Day 2.
Created to accelerate the journey of enterprises and public sector organizations to large-scale production with Kubernetes, the latest release of D2iQ makes it easier to both deploy and manage solutions throughout an application lifecycle. With a single, centralized, strategic point of control for an organization’s application infrastructure, DKP 2.0 radically simplifies running applications on distributed and heterogeneous infrastructures, whether on-premises, in the cloud, in isolated or peripheral environments.
“DKP 2.0 represents our continued drive to enable clients to maximize their digital agility and thrive in rapidly changing and highly competitive markets,” said Tobi Knaup, CEO and co-founder of D2iQ. “The advancements in version 2.0 were designed in direct response to the challenges organizations face when running Kubernetes enterprise-wide. DKP 2.0 automates the once manual processes required to successfully scale a Kubernetes infrastructure into production, reducing costs and freeing IT resources to focus on more strategic projects. ”
Key features of DKP 2.0 include:
- CNCF CAPI architecture: DKP 2.0 is built around the new CNCF CAPI technology. The move to CAPI simplifies declarative infrastructure management using GitOps, automating many of the once manual processes required for systems to function and scale.
- Vacuum cluster supply: With a reduced process of eight steps to one, organizations can use the CLI to quickly and easily provision air-gap clusters on-premises or in the cloud with the added ability to create Amazon machine images complete for air cloud – deficient deployments. This is essential for government, healthcare, manufacturing, finance, and other highly secure and regulated industries seeking the agility offered by the cloud, but who must operate in secure environments.
- Auto scaling: DKP 2.0 provides customers with an easier way to take advantage of the scalability inherent in the cloud-native approach, automating the growth and reduction of infrastructure capacity based on the resource requirements of workloads as they arise. running. This allows uninterrupted availability of applications and reduces the burden on operators of constantly monitoring the system for resource constraints while reducing costs.
- Improved GitOps support: With DKP 2.0, we add FluxCD which is specially designed for Kubernetes and leverages native capabilities of Kubernetes. The adoption of Flux enables GitOps for applications and infrastructure, supporting Canary deployments and A / B deployments. Flux enables continuous delivery through automatic reconciliation and can even link back to Git with container image updates. Flux works with your Git providers, all major container registries, and all CI workflow providers. It works with all popular Kubernetes tools like Kustomize, Helm, supports multi-tenancy with RBAC and rule-based validation like OPA. Flux supports multiple Git repositories and multicluster infrastructure using the Cluster API and provides alerts to external systems like Slack and other messaging systems. This change ensures that the DKP platform continues to use the best tools native to the Kubernetes platform and provides the most comprehensive set of tools for Day 2 operations out of the box.
Existing DKP customers already have access to 2.0 enhancements with additional functionality for managing multi-cluster, multi-cloud and multi-tenant environments in any type of infrastructure. For more information on DKP 2.0, visit: www.d2iq.com/kubernetes-platform.
