Nethopper Unveils Kubernetes App Operations (KAOps) Platform

Integration of ArgoCD GitOps with Multi-Cluster App Networking

BOSTON, MA, USA /EINPresswire.com/ — Nethopper.io, the pioneer of Kubernetes Application Operations (KAOps) Platform as a service, today announced the addition of ArgoCD GitOps to the platform. It is the first in the industry to combine ArgoCD GitOps with the power of multi-cluster application networking and the ease of use of a cloud-based PaaS. Nethopper’s platform allows application operations teams to accelerate deployments to any Kubernetes cluster in any cloud(s), securely. Nethopper provides on-demand multi-cluster ArgoCD GitOps that automates changes to application deployments with Git as a single source of truth for declarative configurations, making Kubernetes application deployments fast, secure, reliable, and dramatically simpler.

“Argo started as a way to enable organizations to declaratively build and run cloud-native applications and workflows on Kubernetes using GitOps techniques. After joining CNCF as an incubation project in 2020, we never could have imagined the growth and enthusiasm that the community would experience,” said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO, CNCF. “Argo is now used by over 185 organizations and trusted by end users such as Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA ), Ticketmaster (NASDAQ: TKTM ) and WordPress.”

Nethopper’s ArgoCD GitOps eliminates the complexity of manually deploying many application objects to many clusters. This speeds up the deployment of applications while increasing quality and without compromising security. In fact, Nethopper’s implementation improves security beyond standard ArgoCD by removing the need to expose the Kubernetes API to the Internet or any network. It also monitors running applications and detects and remediates out-of-sync Kubernetes applications. This minimizes downtime and recovery time with fast rollouts and rollbacks of features.

“Today’s announcement marks an important milestone in our vision, execution and commitment to making cloud native applications easy to operate across private, hybrid, edge and multi-cloud,” said Chris Munford, founder and CEO of Nethopper. “ArgoCD GitOps is now part of our KAOps platform, which is a new approach to operations that combines continuous delivery with skupper multi-cloud application networks to provide an unprecedented level of simplicity, security and observability,” he said. “What makes Nethopper’s KAOps so powerful is that we leverage scupper to extend the reach of each of our Ops tools, such as ArgoCD, to all of the customer’s chosen clusters globally. This creates a single central operations hub across many applications and many clusters, as opposed to replicating operations efforts, one for each application and/or each cluster. In comparison, Nethopper’s KAOps dramatically reduces operational overhead, unplanned downtime, and the attack surface for cybersecurity threats.”

Kubernetes Application Operations – KAOps

As enterprises continue to use Kubernetes to run their applications in an ever-growing number of private, edge and public clouds, the need for simple, secure and efficient operations grows even more. Nethopper KAOps continues to differentiate itself as it frees application operations teams from having to build, customize, integrate and support their own unique operations stack. The KAOps platform helps companies focus resources on developing more features and improving business results. The improved operations also allow them to release application updates more frequently and recover faster from failures.

Nethopper’s ArgoCD GitOps

Nethopper’s ArgoCD GitOps enables application operations teams to manage the application operations as code in a Git version control system. A software agent ensures that an application’s installed state matches the desired state, as declared in the Git configuration files. And it also makes application deployment and lifecycle automated, controllable and easy to understand.

Key differentiators:

● Makes getting started simple, easy and quick, requiring only 30 seconds from signing up to ArgoCD server on-demand access

● Provides business support

● Prevents cluster Kubernetes APIs from being exposed to the network/internet (a common industry security breach)

● Has multi-cluster application set built-in

● Works with all clouds and Kubernetes distributions

● Automates deployment of applications to Kubernetes clusters in any cloud

● Ensures inter-cluster container communication

● Increases visibility and control with a single pane of glass for all clusters and applications

Key Features:

● Automatic deployment of applications to specified target environments

● Support for multiple configuration management/template tools (Kustomize, Helm, Jsonnet, plain-YAML)

● Ability to manage and deploy to multiple clusters

● Rollback/Roll-anywhere to any application configuration committed in the Git repository

● Health status analysis of application resources

● Automated configuration operation detection and visualization

● Automatic or manual synchronization of applications to the desired state

● Web user interface which provides real-time view of application activity

● Audit trail for application events and API calls

● Parameter overrides for overriding rudder parameters in Git

Availability and price:

● Available now with flexible usage-based pricing
