In this video, we demo how to package a Kubernetes application using Gravity and deploy and install the application across three Linux servers.
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-premises deployments.
An open source version of Gravity is intended to package and deploy cloud-native applications to restricted, on-premises 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-premises 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.
Gravitational CTO, Sasha Klizhentas, discusses the challenges with delivering your SaaS application on-premises and provides some solutions to overcome those challenges. You can read more about Gravity, (fka, Telekube) at https://gravitational.com/gravity
After several years of deploying and running complex applications in some of the most secure, air-gapped data centers in the world, we put together this survival handbook for our customers (or potential customers) to help them evaluate, prepare and survive going on-prem.
Kubernetes and containers are changing how applications are built, deployed, and managed. These distros are leading the charge.
The rapid adoption of cloud services is a once in a generation, multi-billion dollar shift for the IT industry. In this paper, we discuss some of the biggest challenges the adoption of Infrastructure as a Service (“IaaS”) and Software as a Service (“SaaS”) pose.
Software-as-a-service doesn’t work for everybody, an issue that Gravitational takes on with its managed Kubernetes service Telekube.
Software as a Service ('SaaS') has brought about a revolution in the way software is delivered to customers. The SaaS model evolved to alleviate the difficulty of adoption, large upfront investment and high cost of maintenance that traditional on-premises software required of customers.
