Banzai Cloud Takes Hybrid Multi-Cloud Solutions to New Heights at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2019

Industry-disrupting cloud software startup, Banzai Cloud, is breaking the mold in the enterprise world with its new state-of-the-art, secure application platform, Pipeline 2.0, now integrated with Cloud Fusion, to act as a universal conduit to all major commercial clouds and data centers - helping businesses save time, money and effort.

Bringing Simplicity to the Management of Cloud Deployments: Banzai Cloud Pipeline 2.0 integrated with Cloud Fusion

Pipeline 2.0 is a hybrid multi-cloud application platform based on Cloud Native technologies that provides a productive foundation for containerized application deployment as well as integrated solutions for Day One and Day Two operations. The platform allows companies to deploy and manage their own clusters without friction and offers a comprehensive solution for developing and operating services on-prem and in the cloud.

Aimed at enterprises running workloads across private data centers and public clouds, the product provides the power of a unified platform without modifications to existing Kubernetes deployments. Pipeline 2.0 allows companies to scale up while automatically getting all the necessary infrastructure support, resiliency, security, centralized logging, monitoring and disaster-recovery in place, as well as providing additional features designed to operate services in production.

The new platform brings a plethora of production features in the areas of security and observability, in addition to new tools for building hybrid multi-cloud deployments. Its refined features enable customers' hybrid-cloud use-cases including cluster groups, service mesh, and federated resource and application deployments built on Kubernetes federation v2. Now also integrated with Cloud Fusion, the industry's first hybrid-cloud Kubernetes cloud controller, businesses can radically simplify how hybrid clouds are deployed and managed.

"Enterprises need a lot of flexibility when delivering their applications and services," said Kris Flautner, CEO of Banzai Cloud. "The Banzai Cloud Pipeline 2.0 platform provides a productive foundation for their services, and Backyards gives convenient control over service quality, operations and telemetry."

At KubeCon and CloudNativeCon 2019, Banzai Cloud will also showcase its automated service mesh, Backyards. By moving everything related to service-to-service communication to a dedicated infrastructure layer, application code stays clean, while observability, security and traffic control is unified and can be managed from a dedicated control plane. This enables developers and operation teams to have a simple and seamless experience when working in single- and multi-cluster environments.

Banzai Cloud Backyards - Automated and Operationalized Service Mesh

Developers and their operation teams are often faced with challenges regarding comprehensive control and oversight in systems of containerized workloads that comprise of many microservices. Solving challenges regarding how components operate together, identifying bottlenecks and securing communication channels can drain team resources and money. Banzai Cloud Backyards not only automates management of the service mesh infrastructure to gain system-level control, it also radically simplifies how complex services are managed in single- and multi-cluster environments, across data centers and in the cloud.

"We believe service mesh is one of the next must-have technologies for operating large production systems," Flautner continued. "Navigating the hype and complexity surrounding this topic can be challenging, so Banzai Cloud provides clarity by offering a product that leverages and integrates best-of-breed components, making the adoption and use of the service mesh as effortless as possible."

"Many of our customers are looking for a product to solve specific problems: Some would like a solution to scale workloads out of the data center into public clouds, others would like to go multi-cloud for their SaaS product or are looking for an enterprise application platform," said Janos Matyas, CTO of Banzai Cloud. "We add value to DevOps teams by integrating services and productizing the ‘plumbing,' so that they can focus on their differentiating objectives. Pipeline doesn't replace ops, it makes ops more productive."

Pipeline 2.0 can be deployed on-premise or in five cloud providers (Amazon, Azure, Google, Alibaba, and Oracle). Services that are running on Pipeline scale out horizontally to other clouds and data centers to support multi-, hybrid- and edge-cloud configurations.
