Kubernatic has announced the open source release of KubeCarrier. KubeCarrier was designed to automate the provisioning and entire lifecycle management of services, applications, and API-accessible hardware devices by leveraging Kubernetes Operators.
As cloud adoption accelerates, the company explained that operation teams are confronted with the complexities of service management across multiple clusters, clouds, and regions.
KubeCarrier aims to address these complexities by harnessing the Kubernetes API and Operators into a central framework, allowing enterprises and service providers to deliver cloud native service management from one multi-cloud, multi-cluster hub, according to the working group behind the project.
“With KubeCarrier, internal or external customers can immediately deploy the cloud native software and services they need, including databases, data stores, monitoring, service meshes, and other Kubernetes tooling,” Kubermatic wrote in a blog post.
The solution is licensed under Apache 2.0 and it provides automated provisioning and the entire lifecycle management of services, applications, and API-accessible hardware devices.
It also includes the dynamic registration of services, applications, and devices independent of cloud, region, or datacenter, as well as multi-tenancy and user management, automated configuration and adjustable application services.
