Puppet announced a new competency-based global channel partner program for the company’s almost-200 worldwide channel partners that operate across 35 countries.
Kublr received Microsoft Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes validation, including for Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes for Data Services.
Kublr continues to expand its ecosystem of partners and integrations, making it simple for enterprises to adopt a single pane of glass for their Kubernetes operations and management across multi-cloud, hybrid, and on-premise environments simultaneously. Specifically, Kublr's validation as an Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes provider presents another useful way to integrate customers' Azure cloud footprints with their data center and multi-cloud capacity so they can manage applications across multiple locations uniformly and with added visibility, flexibility, and security to help speed time-to-market.
"Enterprises have an appetite to maximize the real benefits of Kubernetes to support more infrastructure operations traditionally implemented outside the cloud native stack, such as storage and disaster recovery, but are still challenged trying to simplify the management of their current solutions," said Oleg Chunikhin, Co-founder and CTO, Kublr. "By successfully completing the Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes validation program, Kublr and Azure customers will both benefit from the ability to deploy Kubernetes in the data center with improved, simplified visibility and management thanks to the Kublr platform while at the same time maintaining the ability to use advanced Azure application management and CI/CD tools and deep Azure integration."
The Kublr team worked closely with the Azure Arc engineering team to complete interoperability and compatibility tests, and will ensure that future minor and major versions of the Kublr platform will be validated with Azure Arc.
In addition to Azure Arc-enabled Kubernetes validation, Kublr supports a number of advanced Microsoft Azure features, including:
- Full control over the Azure resources provisioned for Kubernetes clusters
- Azure Virtual Machines, Availability Sets, and Scale Sets with auto-scaling support
- Azure zones and zone pinning support
- Azure ARM resources extensions and overrides support
- Support for custom images including Azure FIPS-certified VM images
- Continued Business Momentum and Industry Recognition
