Otomi Container Platform
Benefits For Platform Teams
Avoid Cloud Lock-In
Don’t lock yourself into any cloud provider when using Kubernetes
Role Based Access
Provide Role-Based Access to development teams and make them self serving
Lower Ops burden
No application management of everything running on top of Kubernetes
Speed is everything to bring new products and applications to market. No one wants to slow down developers. Empower developers and scale-up with speed while ensuring quality, compliance, governance, avoid lock-in, and lower operational burden
Avoid Cloud Lock-In
Are you worried that you can’t adopt cloud-native technology without becoming completely reliant on one cloud provider? One way that organizations outsource management for Kubernetes is to use one of the cloud provider’s Kubernetes versions in conjunction with a variety of cloud provider native services. This is often faster than using vanilla Kubernetes and managing integrations and infrastructure in-house, but it also completely locks the organization into the cloud provider and often becomes very expensive.
This approach also takes away the flexibility to change cloud providers in the future while increasing the financial risks. With Otomi Container Platform, you don’t have to lock yourself into any cloud provider or risk rapidly increasing cloud service bills in order to get the fastest possible platform to deploy containerized applications.
Role Based Access
Free developers from worrying about the underlying platform setup while still enforcing standards and best practices so they can focus on delivering code. With Otomi Container Platform, developers can be fully self-serving. They can spin up new namespaces, get access to all the tools they need, create secrets, deploy workloads, create jobs, configure public exposure, add service monitors, and much more. And all of these features are accessible through just one console.
Platform administrators have access to all the platform applications. Team administrators can create team spaces for development teams and team members can create multiple namespaces within their team space(s).
Lower Operational Burden
Choosing the DIY platform building approach can be time-consuming and complex. On average, Ops teams need at least 20 months to build an initial setup. And the ongoing maintenance afterward can become an operational nightmare. Otomi helps Ops teams to lower the operational burden by taking over the application management of everything running on top of Kubernetes, including the lifecycle management of all the applications and add-ons.
This enables platform teams to focus on another very important aspect: the Kubernetes cluster infrastructure management and security. As a platform team, you know that a very important part of securing the infrastructure is worker node hardening. Now you have time to focus on this and other important aspects instead of building a custom container platform solution.
Prevent Kubernetes Cluster Sprawl
As companies look to further harness the power of cloud-native, they are adopting container technologies at rapid speed, increasing the number of clusters and workloads. As the number of Kubernetes clusters grows, this is creating increased work for Ops teams. When it comes to patching security issues or upgrading clusters, teams are doing five times the amount of work.
With Otomi you can use the Teams functionality to create (soft) multi-tenancy, allowing multiple development teams to work independently of each other on the same cluster. Now you only have to deploy a single dev or staging cluster to support multiple development teams. This prevents you from Kubernetes cluster sprawl.
