Cloud-native tools highlight

1 Kubernetes Cost Optimization & Automation Platform - CAST AI

  • Cast AI is the leading all-in-one platform for Kubernetes automation, optimization, security, and cost management. *

  • Kelemetry aggregates various data sources including Kubernetes events, audit logs, and informers into the form of traditional tracing, enabling visualization through Jaeger UI and automatic analysis.

  • Komiser is an open-source cloud-agnostic resource manager. It integrates with multiple cloud providers, builds a cloud asset inventory, and helps you break down your cost at the resource level

  • Node Problem Detector aims to make various node problems visible to the upstream layers in the cluster management stack. It is a daemon that runs on each node, detects node problems and reports them to the apiserver.

  • Kured (Kubernetes Reboot Daemon) is a Kubernetes daemonset that performs safe automatic node reboots when the need to do so is indicated by the package management system of the underlying OS.

  • Preevy is a powerful Command Line Interface (CLI) tool designed to simplify the process of creating ephemeral preview environments. With Preevy, you can easily provision a preview environment for any Docker-Compose application in the cloud. *

  • Kubernix aims to provide single-dependency Kubernetes clusters for local testing, experimenting and development purposes.

  • Skippbox is a Desktop application to manage applications deployed on Kubernetes. It supports multiple k8s endpoints and accesses a public application store.

  • Terramate helps implement and maintain highly scalable Terraform projects by adding powerful capabilities such as code generation, stacks, orchestration, change detection, data sharing and more. *

  • Kubestriker is a platform-agnostic tool designed to tackle Kubernetes cluster security issues due to misconfigurations and will help strengthen the overall IT infrastructure of any organisation.
