Why Use D2iQ Kommander 2.0?

Abstract Graphic

Manage Applications and Infrastructure Declaratively

Simplify Application and Cluster Lifecycle Management

Having to manually provision, update, and operate Kubernetes is time-consuming and error-prone. The move to Cluster API (CAPI), simplifies declarative infrastructure management using GitOps, automating many of the formerly manual processes required to keep systems running and scaling. Kommander also integrates FluxCD to enable GitOps for both applications and infrastructure, supporting canary deployments and A/B rollouts. Embracing a declarative approach to Kubernetes makes deploying, managing, and scaling Kubernetes workloads more auditable and repeatable and less error-prone.

Provide Real-Time Cost Management

Lower TCO with Out-of-the-Box Kubecost

Cost Visibility” section to “Understanding the financial impact of cluster sprawl across an organization is exceptionally difficult, especially as more users, teams, and projects spin up new clusters in different environments. Kommander’s out-of-the-box Kubecost integration provides cost granularity in real-time using tools that have awareness of Kubernetes. This deep awareness allows you to attribute costs to the right departments, applications, projects, or other organizational groups, for reduced waste, better forecasting, and lower TCO.

Enable Centralized Observability for Easier Troubleshooting

Enhance Logging and Monitoring Across Clusters

As various parts of the organization require new Kubernetes clusters, there is often no centralized, overarching visibility into the clusters they are monitoring. Kommander provides enhanced visibility and control from the same central point of control, with integrated logging, monitoring, and alerting across all clusters. This capability allows you to centrally review the health and performance of each cluster by region, availability zone, or cloud provider, so that monitored threats are detected and issues can be resolved before they escalate, thereby saving valuable time.

Deliver Federated Management Across a Wide Variety of Roles

Provide Enterprise Access Controls for Multi-Tenancy

Operators need the ability to create lines-of-separation across identities and access to resources. Kommander addresses these challenges by providing single sign-on and federated role-based policy across all organizational clusters. This capability helps ensure that as services are being provisioned, organizations can delegate management and operational responsibilities at various levels to those who require them. Kommander 2.0 adds the ability to manage logs by tenant or workspace, for more granular control and simpler troubleshooting of problems.

Ensure Conformance and Compliance

Manage Risk and Security Vulnerabilities

In order to reduce the potential vulnerable surface area of software in use, operators need to maintain granular control over which versions of software can be used within project efforts. This level of control not only helps organizations simplify the provisioning of services, but ensure that risks and compliance requirements are met. With D2iQ Kommander, you can ensure conformance to the minimum version levels supported in the Kubernetes ecosystem and compliance with applicable regulations. Your organization will have peace of mind that their clusters won’t break due to version incompatibilities and can feel confident that they're using the correct Kubernetes and add-on versions at any given time.
