Upbound Announces Crossplane Integration with GitLab 12.5 Release
December 12, 2019

Upbound, the company behind open source projects Rook and Crossplane, announced an integration to manage multiple cloud services from a single interface in GitLab.

Available with the 12.5 release of GitLab, users can easily install Crossplane into Kubernetes clusters managed by GitLab from the GitLab user interface. This important integration allows for continuous deployment of Kubernetes apps that use managed cloud services across Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure. With the Crossplane integration, engineers can provision cloud services from GitLab pipelines or using GitLab’s Auto DevOps feature.

Crossplane is a community-driven, open source control plane based on the Kubernetes API, allowing companies the ability to standardize on a single declarative API to manage their applications and infrastructure. With Crossplane, companies can extend their investment in cloud-native solutions to the rest of their cloud infrastructure.

Sid Sijbrandij, CEO at GitLab, said: “As part of GitLab’s Kubernetes Integration, you can install Crossplane to your cluster with a few clicks and take advantage of a consistent workflow across multiple clouds.”

This integration is part of a continuing partnership between GitLab and Upbound. You can use Crossplane to deploy GitLab, and now you can use GitLab to deploy Crossplane to securely consume cloud infrastructure for Kubernetes applications deployed with GitLab. With GitLab and Crossplane, users can deploy their software across computing environments.

“In this new era of cloud computing, companies are increasingly adopting differentiated cloud services from multiple vendors,” said Bassam Tabbara, CEO and Founder of Upbound. “To address the complexity of managing heterogeneous cloud services, we recognized the need for an open source and community-driven effort to standardize on an API and automation. This was our motivation for starting the Crossplane project.”

Crossplane continues to mature and advance at a rapid pace, with the recent release of v0.5 and the engagement with companies like DigitalOcean, YugabyteDB, Packet, Pivotal PKS, Rancher, and CockroachDB. The momentum continues to build with the Crossplane community engagement around extending Crossplane to add support for additional cloud providers, managed Kubernetes offerings, and managed cloud services. Through the integration into GitLab with the 12.5 release, Crossplane is now reaching further stages of stability and is ready for GitOps dev and test pipelines today.
