DKP GOV

DKP Gov: The Leading Kubernetes Management Platform for Government

We remove the complexity from Kubernetes adoption

DKP Gov provides the most advanced, open, secure, and fully automated cloud-native container management platform to enable government agencies to realize their digital transformation and modernization goals.

Broad Adoption Across the Government Sector

D2iQ has been deployed by a broad array of government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Missile Defense, U.S. Space Force, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and more.

D2iQ is being widely deployed across the public sector because it provides the most feature-rich, fully automated, secure, reliable, open, and flexible platform on which government and military agencies can modernize and innovate to keep pace with technological advances and gain strategic and tactical superiority.

Government agencies and major system integrators are choosing D2iQ for their modernization initiatives and mission-critical applications because of D2iQ’s unique Kubernetes management capabilities, including ease of deployment, ease of management, ease of air-gapped deployment, edge/IoT capabilities, and AI workload support. DKP Gov can be set up in a day, fully secure, and production-ready.

DKP Gov Features and Benefits

Icon

DevSecOps Simplification

By providing a fully automated and integrated Kubernetes stack that is secure by default, DKP eases the burden of DevSecOps. Just as platform engineering eases the burden of DevOps by providing an Internal Development Environment (IDP) that serves as a “golden path” for developers, DKP provides an IDP that simplifies the practice of DevSecOps.

Icon

Military-Grade Security

DKP exceeds NSA/CISA Kubernetes security hardening guidelines and can be configured to meet defined security standards. Each component is scanned for vulnerabilities before release. DKP also simplifies full air-gapped deployments via self-contained images and purpose-built automation.

Icon

Air-Gap with Greater Ease

DKP Gov provides full support for physically and logically air-gapped clusters, including the unique capability to perform an air-gapped deployment in minutes with just a few clicks. With many government programs requiring fully air-gapped deployments, DKP Gov’s proven ease of installation in those use cases provides a distinct advantage.

Icon

Intelligent Troubleshooting with DKP Insights

DKP Insights is your intelligent copilot that gives you Kubernetes troubleshooting superpowers. It analyzes clusters and ensures that best practices are being followed. When an issue occurs, it performs automatic root cause analysis and recommends steps to resolve it. It can even spot problematic trends long before they impact production. This prevents costly downtime and speeds up time to resolution.

Icon

Pure Upstream Kubernetes

DKP Gov is based on pure upstream open-source Kubernetes, a critical design factor that imparts a host of advantages while enabling customers to avoid the portability, manageability, upgradeability, and security issues associated with forked Kubernetes versions and dependencies.

Icon

Cluster API (CAPI) for Greater Productivity and Consistency

DKP's use of Cluster API provides consistency for cluster creation regardless of where those clusters are running--teams that develop in the cloud and provision on premises can get to production deployments faster with consistent APIs. Because DKP Gov is architected around CAPI, it provides a consistent interface for cluster deployment across all environments, which means faster speed to capability.

Icon

Confirmed Stateside Support (CSS)

Because many governmental applications require CSS, DKP Gov includes access to D2iQ’s CSS team of U.S. citizens working at U.S. support centers.

Icon

Supply-Chain Security

DKP Gov meets all key NSA/CISA hardening guidelines, including supply chain security. D2iQ is a CNCF embargo partner and can respond rapidly to Day 0 security exploits through software patches. DKP goes through vigorous and continuous vulnerability scanning with every point release.

Icon

Support AI Workloads

DKP Gov is optimized for the advanced AI workloads that government agencies require to achieve strategic and tactical superiority, including the ability to train in the cloud and run at the edge.
