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.
Gravitational added management support via Kubernetes to its Teleport credential management product, which now places the popular container orchestration platform next to the already supported secure socket shell (SSH). Control of both is through a single pane of glass for organizations dealing with multiple infrastructure environments.
Gravitational announces Teleport 3.0, which allows InfoSec, system architects and systems engineers to manage privileged access to their infrastructure across multiple cloud providers and on-premise through either SSH or Kubernetes, while meeting compliance requirements, reducing operational overhead, and enabling complete visibility into user behavior.
Gravitational has announced Kubernetes support in version 3.0 of its open-source privileged access management software, Teleport. Teleport 3.0 provides InfoSec, system architects, and systems engineers with a way to manage privileged access to their infrastructure while meeting compliance requirements, reducing operational overhead, and enabling complete visibility into user behavior.
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-premise and provides some solutions to overcome those challenges. You can read more about Telekube at https://gravitational.com/telekube
The goal of the paper is to identify key challenges and the most promising opportunities for small to medium sized server hosting providers in an era of rapid commoditization driven by AWS.
This is a brief overview of Telekube, Gravitational's platform for deploying and managing Kubernetes applications.
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.
Telekube is optimized for deploying and managing applications on infrastructure you don't control. Telekube is trusted by some of the largest enterprises in software, finance, healthcare, manufacturing, IT, security, telecom, government, and other industries.
Kubernetes and containers are changing how applications are built, deployed, and managed. These distros are leading the charge.
Telekube combines a production hardened deployment of Kubernetes with Teleport, our multi-region SSH server, so you can effectively manage multiple deployments of Kubernetes applications across various regions, data centers and cloud providers.
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.
Teleport has tons of team-friendly features, and it showcases Google's Go language as a replacement for critical IT infrastructure.
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-premise software required of customers.
Kubernetes has recently become a leading emerging system for the orchestration of containers. It was developed by Google to be an open sourced version of their internal system for cluster management, Borg.
