Announcing Gravity 7.0

Gravity 7.0

Today, we are excited to announce the release of Gravity 7.0! Gravity is a tool for developers to package multiple Kubernetes applications into an easily distributable .tar file called a “cluster image”. A cluster image contains everything an application needs and it can be used for quickly creating Kubernetes clusters pre-loaded with applications from scratch or loading applications contained within an image into an existing Kubernetes cluster like OpenShift or GKE.

Gravity is used by organizations that need to deploy their Kubernetes applications into “uncharted territories” such as their customers’ infrastructure (cloud or on-prem), edge locations, or to package applications for easy internal distribution, across different clouds, and infrastructure form factors.

What’s New?

Gravity 7.0 is an important milestone for us because with this release, we’re tackling the two most frequently requested capabilities:

  1. Deploying Gravity Cluster Images into existing Kubernetes clusters
  2. Making it easier to run Gravity clusters in environments where security and compliance are paramount

Let’s dive deeper into these areas.

Deploying into Existing Kubernetes Clusters

Normally, Gravity cluster images are used to create Kubernetes clusters pre-loaded with applications from scratch, or to update clusters that were created with Gravity earlier. This capability is what makes Gravity the default go-to open source solution for organizations that need to run large numbers of clusters distributed all over the world.

However, there are use cases where users already have an existing Kubernetes cluster deployed in a target environment, managed by an existing team that wisely prefers to avoid fixing what’s not broken.

Gravity 7.0 allows such users to leverage their existing Kubernetes clusters and inject applications contained within a Gravity cluster image into an existing environment like OpenShift or GKE, simplifying application delivery into locations where Kubernetes is already present.

Security & Compliance Enhancements

Most Gravity users operate in industries where security and compliance are paramount, e.g. finance, insurance, government, or any organization that offers solutions to those institutions. They’ve talked to us and we’ve listened. Gravity 7.0 comes with the following security-oriented features:

Other Improvements

Besides supporting legacy Kubernetes clusters and security enhancements, Gravity also adds these two frequently requested features:
