Why Use Konvoy 2.0?

Abstract Graphic

Leverage Pure Upstream, Open Source Kubernetes

Avoid Lock-In and Harness Innovation

While there are many cloud providers that offer Kubernetes solutions, they come with proprietary updates that prevent integrating with other upstream projects from the ecosystem. Konvoy is built on pure upstream open-source Kubernetes, so you can avoid lock-in. Everything works out-of-the-box so you can manage Kubernetes independently and harness the innovation of the open-source community.

Accelerate Time-to-Market for New Application Needs

Automatically Install and Provision Kubernetes and its Supporting Services

Getting Kubernetes into production is no easy feat. Delivering an end-to-end solution includes a variety of open-source technologies that take months to build and integrate together. Konvoy provides a highly automated installation process that includes all of the ancillary platform services needed for Day 2 production. The platform services provided for functions, such as networking, storage, logging, monitoring, and more, have been carefully selected from the CNCF landscape, and rigorously tested to work together, something they were not necessarily designed to do from the start. The result is a consistent and repeatable approach to standing up a production-ready environment.

Improve Air-Gapped Deployments

Speed up Delivery Without Sacrificing Security or Compliance

Getting Kubernetes to work in air-gapped environments is incredibly complex because they have infrastructure restrictions that limit their ability to effectively deploy and operate. Konvoy leverages Cluster API to simplify the provisioning, upgrading, and operating of multiple air-gapped clusters in the cloud or on-premise, with the added ability to create comprehensive Amazon Machine Images (AMI) for cloud air-gapped deployments. In addition, Konvoy is FIPS validated, a key requirement for many government applications. Security-conscious companies have the control and flexibility they need to build agile, cloud-native applications in a more secure environment.

Reduce Operation Burdens in Complex, Multi-Cluster Environments

Built For Enterprise-Grade Operations

Standing up a production-ready environment requires deep domain expertise across a wide variety of cloud-native technologies needed for Day 2 operations. Unfortunately, most Kubernetes solutions don’t come out-of-the-box and are very labor intensive to get up and running. Konvoy has unique features and capabilities to ensure smooth sailing on Day 2, including an out-of-the-box audit dashboard, CAPI-based autoscaling, and the ability to perform fine-grained cluster upgrades in a highly controlled fashion. In addition, Konvoy operates across the full range of cloud, on-prem, edge, and air-gapped infrastructures, providing organizations with tremendous flexibility to run Kubernetes anywhere with reliability.

Leverage Premium Expertise

Ongoing Training, Services, and Support

Most Kubernetes providers offer training, services, and support for Kubernetes, but not for the wide variety of services beyond the cloud-native landscape. DKP provides a full complement of training, expert professional services, and end-to-end support for Kubernetes and the full stack of application services needed for production operations. Rather than dealing with multiple vendors, you have a single partner to help keep everything running smoothly at every stage of your Kubernetes journey. By leveraging our holistic approach, you can accelerate time to value, reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and mitigate the risk of adopting Kubernetes.
