Mirantis Container Cloud Lens Extension Announced
August 10, 2022

Mirantis made it even easier to integrate Mirantis Container Cloud into developer workflows and provide developers and operators with easy access and visibility into the Kubernetes clusters with the Mirantis Container Cloud Lens Extension announced today.

Mirantis Container Cloud (MCC) delivers an easy-to-use, consistent, and fully-managed way to quickly deploy Kubernetes clusters on any infrastructure, reducing the load on developers needing to build test or production Kubernetes clusters that are secure and comply with corporate standards. The DevOps team could deploy Mirantis Container Cloud once and then provide access to the web user interface (UI) or the application programming interface (API) and let developers or their colleagues build clusters on demand.

“The Mirantis Container Cloud Lens Extension makes it even easier to integrate Mirantis Container Cloud into the developer workflow,” said Miska Kaipiainen, VP of Product Engineering, Mirantis. “It provides developers and operators with easy access and visibility into all the clusters they have rights to attach to through Mirantis Container Cloud.”

Lens provides MCC users with an intuitive and simple graphical user interface that enables them to connect to any CNCF-certified Kubernetes cluster and achieve complete situational awareness, allowing them to manage, troubleshoot, and monitor their Kubernetes environment and applications in real-time.

Mirantis Container Cloud simplifies container infrastructure management with one platform for deploying and scaling containerized applications securely from the data center to the edge. It is the de facto choice for the world’s most regulated industries, with end-to-end security enabled by default and the highest level of compliance with FIPS 140-2 and DISA STIG. The self-service portal enables developers to create, observe, and manage their own Kubernetes clusters within established guardrails so they can ship code faster.

The new Lens Extension includes:

- Ability to sync all objects (clusters, SSH keys, proxies, credentials, RHEL licenses) from selected projects in connected management clusters into the Lens Catalog

- Ability to auto-sync future projects in connected management clusters

- View details of all synced objects directly in Lens

- Open clusters in Lens to take advantage of Lens introspection into cluster state and configuration

- Sync objects from multiple projects, from multiple connected management clusters at once allowing visibility of multiple cluster in one place

- Continuous auto-sync of connected management clusters/projects

- Visibility of synced objects offline

- Adds smart labels to synced objects enabling reverse lookups, so for example, it’s possible to know "what clusters are using this credential?"

Lens helps eliminate Kubernetes complexity, thereby enabling mainstream developer adoption. Lens empowers users to easily manage, develop, debug, monitor, and troubleshoot their workloads across multiple clusters in real-time, and supports any certified Kubernetes distribution, on any infrastructure. The Lens desktop application has an intuitive graphical user interface and works with Linux, macOS, and Windows operating systems.

In future releases, the Mirantis Container Cloud Lens Extension will add the capability to create new clusters directly from Lens, further simplifying and speeding up the developer workflow.

A desktop application, Lens lowers the barrier of entry for those just getting started with Kubernetes and radically improves productivity for people with more experience.
