KubeOps

Open Source AirGap Kubernetes-Distribution

With the open source project Kubernetes, Google has launched a solution to easily manage containers and dynamically scale them. The native Kubernetes, however, requires considerable know-how, which is why we have put together a package to offer companies in particular a much simpler and more convenient distribution, which as an AirGap solution can also be operated in restrictive environments. With our experience from many customer projects, we know the exact needs and are building our new distribution KubeOps, which can be operated immediately by the user, based on Kubernetes. With KubeOps, real-time operation in a production environment is no longer wishful thinking, but hardened reality. KubeOps was developed with the focus on providing a secure, easy-to-manage and AirGap-compatible Kubernetes environment immediately after installation.

KubeOps is currently available as a free community edition and as a licensed edition for companies (KubeOps pro) in the core version for Redhat and CentOS systems. In the diagram below, the scope of delivery of the free Community Edition is shown in green.

 

Our software library is available in different versions, depending on customer requirements:

Level 4 ****
Hardened

Level 3 ***
Operation-ready

Level 2 **
Configured

Level 1 *
Integrated

You can find more information in the product brochures on the download page.

The software hub can be connected to isolated environments as a single point of contact. All packages that have been uploaded by us or other users are available on the Software Hub.

Our Software Library complements the usage of KubeOps in productive clusters. Based on our customer needs we take software packages from our hub and harden, qualify and secure these packages according to our Kubernative quality policies. Enabling you to profit from a secure Kubernetes platform even inside the containers.

SINA is our software installer and textual front-end to our Software Hub. With SINA you can download packages from our hub and install software in your cluster. The unique advantage is, that these packages are fully compatible with and based on Helm while still being selfsufficient. All needed dependencies and objects for installation are directly delivered with these packages.

LIMA is our cluster lifecycle manager. With LIMA you set up and manage your cluster without the need to access a single cluster node. LIMA supports you when creating or updating whole clusters and adding or deleting nodes - all from a centralized management node.

PIA is our cluster infrastructure manager. PIA supports you in the management of all operating system related cluster node tasks. It supports you e.g. when managing firewall rules on any node, user management or OS package installation.

What does KubeOps offer?

Easy to use


All life cycle functions can be executed and carried out by using the kubeopsctl tool. This makes it easy to manage the cluster centrally.

AirGap compatible


KubeOps has all the support to operate in AirGap installations. Access to the internet is not required at all, or reduced to a minimum.

Security by design


KubeOps is developed with focus on security. We also harden Docker Images as required and check all components for security.

Designed for production

KubeOps is developed with focus on ease of use. For us, this means that tasks on the cluster such as certificate renewal, upgrade, etc. must be carried out automatically.

What added value is offered?

01

Fully automated management of your clusters with LIMA

With our lifecycle management tool LIMA you can manage your clusters fully automatically and across technologies. This enables you to install, update, add or remove nodes and much more with one central command.

02

AIRGAP FOR PRODUCTIVE OPERATION IN RESTRICTIVE ENVIRONMENTS

KubeOps pro comes with a local repository that contains all the information that Kubernetes needs without having to carry out a large number of Internet accesses. We provide you with updated and quality-assured installation packages on a daily basis so that you can operate your clusters productively in a secure environment. We thus reduce your attack vectors from the outside to a minimum and at the same time increase the quality of your components.

03

COMFORTABLE DELIVERY BY LOCAL SOFTWARE INSTALLER

Thanks to our software installer SINA, you can get all versions of KubeOps pro from a central download area. For this purpose, we have defined a new package format with which all components required for installation can be transferred to your data center. Installation is conveniently carried out using an automated script - your KubeOps pro is thus ready for immediate use.

  • AUTOMATED INCIDENT MANAGEMENT

    Monitoring services and restarting them - if problems occur - is a basic function of Kubernetes. KubeOps comes with these functions as default. Incident management functions are thereby partially automated and your operations team is significantly relieved.

  • OPTIMIZED USE OF RESOURCES

    KubeOps automatically monitors the load in the environment. By activating autoscaling, your application in the cluster begins to "breathe". If more load comes into the system, the components involved are scaled upwards, and the load is reduced accordingly when the load is reduced.

  • ONE IDENTITY FOR EVERYTHING

    KubeOps can be connected to any LDAP and supports oAuth for authentication. This enables a central global login for the management of Kubernetes to be mapped.

  • READY FOR PRODUCTION IMMEDIATELY

    KubeOps is AirGap-ready out of the box. This means that internet access is controlled and kept to be at an absolute minimum. This way your cluster can also be operated in production with a minimum of risk of being attacked.

  • CENTRAL EVALUATION OF OUTPUT

    As standard, we deliver KubeOps with an installed EFK stack. This means that the log data and outputs for all pods can be easily evaluated and viewed centrally. It is also very easy to add your own login content or to link logging to your in-house logging.

  • YOUR SYSTEM UNDER CONTROL AT ALL TIMES

    KubeOps integrates Prometheus as a monitoring tool for the cluster and with the components it contains. This gives you an overview of the resources used and the utilization of the cluster down to the last detail.

  • TEXT FRONTEND FOR CLUSTER MANAGEMENT

    With LIMA you manage the entire life cycle of your cluster. Installation, updates, addition and removal of nodes are fully automated.

  • WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!

    In case you encounter any problems, we are happy to help you. You can reach us during normal business hours (CET) - this service is already included in your license.

  • ON REQUEST WE ARE THERE FOR YOU 24/7

    Do you need a contact person around the clock? You are welcome to book this service in addition to KubeOps Pro.

  • CENTRAL DEPLOYMENT FOR AIRGAP

    In order to reduce the number of accesses to the internet that Kubernetes components usually carry out very often, we have created a central repository for packages. You only have to activate this access for your environment and all applications are available to you in a controlled manner. We apply the highest quality standards when developing the deployment packages.

  • OPERATION AS A SERVICE

    As a specialist for DevOps, we also offer you the opportunity to put your operations in reliable hands. We have the experience and know the software. So you can concentrate on your core tasks and your business runs smoothly.
