Krateo Platformops is an open source tool platform that gives users the capability to create any desired resource on basically any infrastructure they'd like. Be it a K8s cluster, microservice, application, pipeline, database or anything else, Krateo has got your back. The only requirement is for the resource to be descriptible via a YAML file representing the resource's desired state (rings a bell? 😉).
Krateo allows for:
- Creating any kind of resources within and outside the Kubernetes cluster it runs on: whilst Krateo runs as a Deployment in a Kubernetes cluster, it can also create resources outside the cluster. You can use Krateo to create anything from new Kubernetes clusters, Logstash pipelines, Docker registries, API gateways, and many others.
- Focusing on the management of services: Krateo frees the user from most of the burden of cluster management, giving them the ability to entirely focus on the services that must be run. This results a phenomenal user experience that drastically reduces wastes of time.
- Single-handedly monitoring and controlling resources: Krateo also acts as a centralized control plane, letting users monitor anything ranging from CI/CD pipelines to pod statuses and open tickets on your JIRA. All the information you need is present on a single page -- you'll never have to guess the correct dashboard ever again.
With Krateo, we aim to simplicy the existing toolchain with a simple-to-use, complete and modular platform that allows for creating resources on any infrastructure. We see Krateo as a powerful tool that improves the workflow of teams by defining clear roles in which the infrastructure team creates the resource templates needed by the developers, and the developers are the final users that use those templates and can manage the lifecycle of the created resources from a simple, unified dashboard.
In our vision, Krateo is:
- a self-service platform, where users can autonomously choose what to create and where;
- a complete controlplane that eases and centralizes many processes, putting all the relevant information in a single page rather than distributing it on tens of different locations;
- a multi-cloud provider tool: it works with all the major cloud providers and with on-prem installations;
- either managed or easily installable on your existing Kubernetes cluster.
