Kubermatic, a provider of enterprise-grade cloud native platforms and services, announces the next iteration of the Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP) with its 2.19 release. This release enables global businesses to advance their cloud and edge strategies by unifying and automating infrastructure operations in one platform.
According to Gartner analysts, 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud native platforms. “With a strengthened focus on digital transformation, businesses are increasingly adopting cloud native and cloud first strategies but are struggling to integrate them with their existing environments, systems, and legacy applications,” says Sebastian Scheele, CEO and CTO at Kubermatic.
“We believe that every existing asset is valuable and that your current tech stack should be leveraged to its full potential. For this reason, we have built the Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform to unify all environments and systems under one roof.”
Important customer benefits introduced by Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform 2.19 include external cluster support where users can import their existing AKS, EKS, and GKE clusters and monitor and operate them centrally from the KKP dashboard and high performance networking with Cilium and Konnectivity support.
KKP 2.19 adds support for the Operating Systems Manager (OSM) that provides users with improved control over their hybrid cloud and edge environments. Moreover, OSM is an essential prerequisite towards fully automated support of air-gapped clusters, which is expected in the next release.
The Community Edition of Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform 2.19 is open source and available for download.
