Centrally manage Kubernetes clusters on-premise, in hybrid or even air-gapped environments
The Kublr Platform automates the deployment and management of secure, enterprise-grade Kubernetes clusters across multiple environments. Deploy on top of existing infrastructure or integrate with the underlying APIs to automate infrastructure provisioning prior to cluster setup. API integrations ensure consistency across all deployments, minimizing human error that may cause startup and runtime failures. Additionally, environment-specific API integration enables node autoscaling.
Regardless of the environment, all Kubernetes clusters managed by Kublr are built with the operational and security features modern enterprises need.
Bare Metal, Bring Your Own Infrastructure
Assuming the deployment of a suitable OS (the required minimal versions of RHEL, Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, or SUSE), administrators can deploy Kubernetes clusters by logging into servers one at a time or providing the Kublr Platform with SSH credentials for automatic cluster deployment across multiple servers.
Kublr lays down all required packages and system settings prior to deploying Kubernetes. The Kublr Control Plane and Agent then deploy all necessary Kubernetes components and configure them for security and scalability.
VMware with vSphere Integration
The VMware integration significantly simplifies Kubernetes clusters operations procedures. It enables users to leverage cloud-init or custom VM Templates, ensuring conformance to enterprise practices.
Kublr’s vSphere API integration automates VM creation during cluster deployment as part of your Kubernetes cluster creation. Through the intuitive Kublr UI, administrators see a list of data centers, resource pools, data stores, and networks available, based on their login credentials. From the UI, they define the number of master and worker nodes, and choose their desired IP Address Allocation Mode, and VM Templates.
VMware with vCloud Director
For hosted environments that support vCloud Director, Kublr integrates with the vCloud Director API to automate the deployment of VMs in your hosted environment as part of your Kubernetes cluster creation.
Unified Operations, Observability, and Governance
Regardless of your underlying infrastructure, the Kublr Platform enables teams to use the Kublr Control Plane to deploy, run, and manage Kubernetes clusters. Ensure IAM, RBAC, and secure communications across environments while centralized logging and monitoring enables visibility, trouble-shooting, and performance management.
