As Kubernetes and cloud native technologies multiply, designers and IT have actually found a growing set of technical difficulties they need to address, and new principles and jobs have appeared to deal with them. Operators provide a way to plan, release and manage your cloud native application in an automated way. Kubermatic wants to take that concept an action even more, and today the German startup announced KubeCarrier, a new open source, cloud native service management center. Kubermatic co-founder Sebastian Scheele states three or four years ago, the cloud native community required to fix a bunch of technical problems around releasing Kubernetes clusters such as overlay networking, service meshes and authentication. He sees a similar set of problems occurring today where designers need more tools to handle the growing complexity of running Kubernetes clusters at scale.
Kubermatic has actually developed KubeCarrier to help fix one element of this. “What we’re currently concentrating on is how to arrangement and manage work across numerous clusters, and how IT companies can have a service center where they can provide those services to their companies in a centralized way,” Scheele explained.
Scheele says that KubeCarrier provides a method to manage and carry out all of this, offering companies much greater versatility beyond purely handling Kubernetes. While he sees companies with lots of Kubernetes operators, he states that as he sees it, it doesn’t stop there. “We have lots of Kubernetes operators now, but how do we manage them, particularly when there are multiple operators, [together with] the services they are provisioning,” he asked.
This might involve provisioning something like Database as a Service inside the organization or for external consumers, while combining or provisioning numerous services, which are working on several levels and a need a way to communicate with each other.
“That is where Kubecarrier can be found in. Now, we can assist our customers to build this sort of automation around provisioning, and service capability so that various teams can provide various services inside the organization or to external consumers,” he said.
As the company discusses it, “KubeCarrier addresses these complexities by utilizing the Kubernetes API and Operators into a main structure enabling enterprises and service providers to deliver cloud native service management from one multi-cloud, multi-cluster hub.”
KubeCarrier is offered on GitHub, and Scheele says the company is intending to get feedback from the community about how to improve it. In parallel, the company is trying to find ways to integrate this innovation into its business offerings which ought to be available in the next 3-6 months, he said.
