The Multi-Cloud Kubernetes Based Containers-as-a-Service Platform You've Been Waiting for is Finally Here (and it's Mobile Friendly)

Containership, the company behind the popular Containers-as-a-Service platform, Containership Cloud, announced today the release of Containership 3.0. This release is the first in a series that sees the company rebasing its platform on top of the popular Kubernetes container orchestration system. In recent months, Kubernetes has emerged as the leading system for managing containerized workloads in both startups and enterprise businesses. This release will 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 is now responsive and mobile friendly, a first for any Container-as-a-Service platform.

Included in this release 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
  • Centralized SSH Key Management
  • Full support for Kubectl

All of these features are available in an interface that is just as intuitive on a mobile device or tablet as it is on a workstation, and best of all, the platform is completely free for developers.

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

Explaining his reasoning for the shift to Kubernetes as the underlying orchestration system, CTO Norman Joyner had the following to say: "Kubernetes has emerged as the clear leader in container orchestration solutions, a sentiment that we hear echoed often from both customers and prospects. For us, making the change to Kubernetes was a no-brainer as it provides a featureful, 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."
