Kubernetes platform provider D2iQ has announced the latest release of the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP). The key focus of DKP 2.2 is providing customers with more control and visibility into deployment and management. 

It now provides VMware vSphere infrastructure provisioning through the Cluster API. This enables customers to deploy and manage their DKP clusters in a VMware environment, which provides them with improved productivity and speed of deployment. 

This release also includes a preview for DKP Insights, which is a self-service troubleshooting capability. It analyzes alerts, metrics, logs, and events from Kubernetes clusters that are managed by DKP. It then generates heuristic analytics that teams can use to proactively identify and resolve issues. 

Another new feature is access to Kaptain AI/ML, which teams can use to develop, deploy, and run AI and ML workloads reliably in production. 

In DKP 2.2 customers can also build custom machine images for Azure clusters. 

In addition, DKP 2.2 includes an updated interface to further improve the customer experience from deployment through production. 

“As Kubernetes deployments begin to scale in production environments, complexity increases exponentially, often limiting the success and impact of cloud-native projects,” said Tobi Knaup, CEO of D2iQ. “The latest release of DKP further enhances our customers’ experience in running enterprise-grade Kubernetes. Customer-led innovations, such as DKP Insights for improved platform management, empower organizations to accelerate time-to-value and increase reliability for all Kubernetes deployments. As the industry’s leading independent Kubernetes platform, DKP continues to power the cloud-native applications that have become a requirement in modern business operations.”
