Introducing KubeCarrier: Operating Services the Cloud Native Way

At Kubermatic, we are highly committed to automate operations of Kubernetes across all infrastructures and up all layers. Invested in working with the open source community, we are pleased to introduce KubeCarrier, designed to automate the provisioning and entire lifecycle management of services, applications, and API-accessible hardware devices by leveraging Kubernetes Operators. KubeCarrier is now publically available on Github.

Operators extend the power of Kubernetes to a wide range of applications, serve as templates for automating application management, and improve scalability and repeatability – critical for deploying stateful applications in a truly cloud native way. However, as cloud native adoption accelerates, operation teams are confronted with the complexities of service management across multiple clusters, clouds, and regions. They struggle with enterprise-grade compliance and the operational burden involved.

KubeCarrier addresses 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. 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.

One Central Hub for Cloud Native Service Management and Service Store

KubeCarrier scales up to thousands of Kubernetes clusters to deploy and manage tens of thousands of applications, functions, and resources across multiple clouds and regions. As environments grow, it ensures scalability and repeatability by making it easy to locate, inspect, and manage services across the entire platform. KubeCarrier is licensed under Apache 2.0 and provides:

  • Automated provisioning and entire lifecycle management of services, applications and API-accessible hardware devices
  • Dynamic registration of services, applications, and devices independent of cloud, region, or datacenter
  • Application service store
  • Multi-tenancy and user management with access right controls, permissions, and policies to define quotas
  • Automated configuration and adjustable application services
  • Native support for all Kubernetes Operators

You can learn more about KubeCarrier by checking out our Documentation and joining our Webinar Introducing KubeCarrier: Operating Services the Cloud Native Way on August 17 at 4:30 PM CEST. Also, we invite you to share your ideas and feedback on Github.

By open sourcing KubeCarrier, we expand our comprehensive portfolio of open source and enterprise software solutions to empower IT teams worldwide to successfully operate their multi-cloud and edge deployments.
