Containership, the company behind Containership Cloud – a Containers-as-a-Service platform, has announced the release of Containership Cloud 3.0. The free multi-cloud Containers-as-a-Service platform for Kubernetes now comes with full mobile device support.
This new release is the first in a series that would see the company rebasing its platform on top of the “popular” Kubernetes container orchestration system. This release would allow for developers and operators to connect their Kubernetes environments to Containership Cloud, and provide a simplified interface for handling deployment, management, and maintenance of infrastructure no matter where it is running.
Containership 3.0 allows for the management of clusters from a single pane of glass that would now be responsive and mobile friendly. Backed by Draper Triangle Ventures and Birchmere Investments, Containership’s platform is completely free for developers.
Included in the new release of this Containers-as-a-Service platform is support for the following Kubernetes resources, and Containership specific add-on features:
- Workload Deployments
- Config Maps and Secret Management
- Streaming Logs and Events
- Metrics (Prometheus)
- Network Policies, Services, and Ingress Controllers
- Public and Private Registry Support, including DockerHub, Google Container Registry, EC2 Container Registry, and Quay.io
- Centralized SSH Key Management
- Full support for Kubectl
In addition to the free tier, Containership also provides an enterprise version of the product that includes:
- 24/7 Monitoring & Support
- Multi-User Organizations
- Role Based Access Control
- Security & Compliances
- Kubernetes Training
“Kubernetes has emerged as the clear leader in container orchestration solutions, a sentiment that we hear echoed often from both customers and prospects,” said Containership CTO Norman Joyner when explaining his reasoning for the shift to Kubernetes as the underlying orchestration system. “For us, making the change to Kubernetes was a no-brainer as it provides a feature-full, standardized and rock-solid base that we can leverage to more quickly realize our goals of building a platform that makes multi-cloud the default for startups and the enterprise.”
