CloudLinux Inc launched its new open-source project – KuberLogic, a new PaaS model platform for deploying, managing, and scaling software hosted on the Kubernetes cluster. The solution provides API, monitoring, backups, and integration with SSO right out of the box.
Kuberlogic allows running managed databases and popular applications deployed on-premises or on any cloud platform. The new tool now allows enterprise and service providers to look to cloud providers for managed database hosting and eliminate the administration effort using KuberLogic’s automated setup and management of complicated infrastructure software.
The tool includes fully automatic updates, backups, failovers, and recovery processes. In addition, these processes support performance monitoring and tuning, supporting both horizontal and vertical scaling.
KuberLogic allows any organisation to have a fully managed software infrastructure without a tie-in to a cloud Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) KuberLogic allows any organisation to have a fully managed software infrastructure without vendor lock-in to a cloud Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution or commitment of an in-house Development and Operations (DevOps) team.
Recruiting and retaining a skilled DevOps team can be a challenging and costly endeavor, which is more difficult in a time of shortages of suitably qualified and experienced resources. Once established, DevOps staff need the right challenges to maintain their skills and engagement. This challenge can test any organisation.
The alternative is to look for an external service provider, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution, that offers the required development and deployment environment. A large cloud provider offers a range of services. Still, an organisation must choose wisely to prevent any limitations with a technological solution that does not scale seamlessly with business growth.
KuberLogic engineers developed an open-source platform that allows clients to set up a scalable, self-healing PaaS on top of any Kubernetes cluster. This strategy gives the client complete control and the ability to embrace all the advantages of using open-source solutions that can grow and adapt to the client’s individual wants and needs.
“Today, developers want to be able to use highly diversified stacks of technologies in an on-demand, automated manner.” said Igor Seletskiy, CEO & Founder of CloudLinux
Using open-source solutions in enterprise settings was traditionally problematic for the typical highly controlled process-driven environment. Managing operations, upgrades, security patching, and backups while maintaining availability and integrity requires skilled administration, often in short supply. This burden drove most organisations down the route of in-house DevOps or outsourced PaaS. The benefits that KuberLogic brings are self-healing, high availability deployments with simple configurations, and the operation of open-source components that simplify the administration task.
According to the company, KuberLogic provides a fully automated application programming interface (API) first approach, which allows the spinning up and down of clusters. Features that maximise availability by minimizing disruption from essential maintenance and recovery processes. All these facilities free the valuable time of system administrators for more important tasks.
Critically, these KuberLogic services support clustered high availability setups, not limited to a single virtual machine instance that typical automated setups support. In addition, the automatic updates, backup, health tracking, recovery, and failover processes across the clusters make KuberLogic ideal for enterprise environments where regulatory compliance requirements make high availability a prerequisite.
