Forbes lists Gravity as a top vendor highlight from Kubecon NA 2018 for its ability deliver self-sufficient Kubernetes cluster snapshots to reduce the operational burden of running and updating many Kubernetes clusters.
Gravitational has launched an open source Gravity project that enables organizations to take a snapshot of their Kubernetes cluster, including all applications and dependencies, and package it all into a single file to help simplify on-premise deployments.
An open source version of Gravity is intended to package and deploy cloud-native applications to restricted, on-premise infrastructure such as government clouds.
Here’s something to help you put your feet on the ground! Gravity is an open source toolkit for creating snapshots of Kubernetes clusters. In this article, we take a closer look at its features and how it can be useful for your Kubernetes applications.
Gravity allows users to take a snapshot of their Kubernetes cluster (including all applications and dependencies) and package it all into a single file that can be easily installed into any restricted environment, such as AWS GovCloud or air-gapped server rooms.
Gravity reduces operational overhead by enabling fast, cloud-native application deployments into restricted, on-premise environments. Deployments include security and Kubernetes operational best practices out-of-the-box in order to meet enterprise compliance requirements.
Cloud infrastructure compliance specialist Gravitational Inc. today announced it’s selling a new packaging tool for Kubernetes that it claims will make it quick and easy to run the container orchestration software inside on-premises data centers.
Taking the concept of snapshotting from virtualization, a new tool from Gravitational called Gravity allows users to create thousands of identical clusters to ease the pain of setting up and managing Kubernetes.
The goal of the paper is to describe the design of Gravity and enumerate how it differs from alternative solutions that deliver and manage Kubernetes distributions and Kubernetes applications.
Kubernetes and containers are changing how applications are built, deployed, and managed. These distros are leading the charge.
Software-as-a-service doesn’t work for everybody, an issue that Gravitational takes on with its managed Kubernetes service Telekube.
