On June 30, kubesphere 3.0 was officially released. It has made one-to-one responses to a series of pain points encountered in user management of cloud native applications, such as how to easily control hybrid multi cloud, how to step into the cloud native era, and how to meet the needs of enterprise level.
Multiple cluster management, observability enhancement, platform security enhancement and other capabilities expected by customers make the release of kubesphere 3.0 full of highlights.
Zhou Xiaosi, R & D director of Qingyun qingcloud application and container platform, said that kubesphere 3.0 cluster management function supports two modes: Solo and Federation. Through federation mode, multiple kubesphere clusters can be unified pooled, and users only need to focus on the application itself. The application can realize the drift between multiple clusters, so as to solve the problems of cross cloud application deployment, distribution and scheduling, and easily realize the application multi zone high availability, and the deployment on the private cloud, public cloud or other infrastructure can be easily done.
First, step into the cloud native era. Kubesphere 3.0 provides a console with excellent user experience, which allows users to learn containers, cloud native applications and k8s at a very low cost. Basically, there is no need to use the above applications locally, such as Devops, microservice governance, application distribution, multi cluster management, etc.
Second, a powerful infrastructure, the full stack container cloud. Qingyun qingcloud is the earliest cloud platform R & D and public cloud operation. It has rich experience. How to develop the underlying infrastructure (storage, network), middleware and application templates commonly used by enterprises are all good for Qingyun qingcloud. These capabilities are also exported to kubesphere, making the underlying infrastructure of kubesphere very robust and easy to use.
Third, enterprise level features are enhanced. For example, multi tenant isolation, architecture and permissions are multi tenant, observability and monitoring alarm are also multi tenant, which is a function that k8s and other similar products do not have. Qingyun qingcloud has done a lot of enterprise level feature enhancement work, so that it can truly meet the needs of enterprises and the current situation of it, and be compatible with traditional enterprise applications. As we all know, the threshold of cloud native application is relatively high. Many enterprises, especially traditional enterprises, cant step into the cloud native field. Qingyun qingcloud has thought of many ways and provided some tools to let users directly deploy to the cloud native application platform (container platform) without changing the original code, so as to realize smooth compatibility.
Kubesphere, positioning global open source products
First of all, Qingyun qingcloud works closely with CNCF, the cloud native application foundation. As a member of CNCF, Qingyun qingcloud has become the official certification service provider of kubernetes, and kubesphere and Porter enter CNCF landscape. At the same time, Qingyun qingcloud provides a global siteu2014u2014 KubeSphere.io , as well as localization oriented sites, such as China station, Turkey station, etc., and there will be more localization sites in the future. The communication channels also adopt the global common methods such as twitter, slack, LinkedIn and Facebook.
All of the above are Qingyuns strategies for globalization. So far, kubesphere has made a series of achievements in Globalization: GitHub has more than 3700 stars; the number of forks has reached 550; kubesphere has tens of thousands of users. Zhou Xiaosi also shared an interesting phenomenon: in the past six months, the number of overseas users has reached 58%, which has exceeded the domestic users, which fully demonstrates the globalization ability of kubesphere.
Secondly, community publicity. The open source community of Qingyun qingcloud is very active. Many enterprises, including original life, Zhongtong, vng, etc., have participated in the development team of Qingyun qingcloud, and have continuously contributed many important functions to kubesphere. At the same time, Qingyun qingcloud has strengthened its development with its partners, including AWS, radore in Turkey and other global enterprises.
When it comes to the original future of container cloud, Zhou Xiaosi said that it is now in the outbreak period. The outstanding performance is that more and more users and more complex use scenarios. With the rise of the Internet of things and edge computing, a large number of users and partners are using cloud native technology to do smart buildings, smart cities and other smart scenes, which is a new development form. The development trend of cloud native application and hybrid cloud has brought some thinking to kubesphere. Based on this, kubesphere 4.0 will make some changes in the architecture to make a pluggable and open architecture, so that more ISVs or enterprises can develop their own applications or services based on the open architecture standards and deploy them to kubesphere. Therefore, for the kubesphere team in the future, we just need to focus on the core things. It is easier for enterprises to develop their own solutions and deliver their own products with kubesphere architecture. Zhou concluded that there are two tags for kubesphere in the future: open source and open architecture. Kubesphere only provides the most core services, such as managing infrastructure, workload, providing system level services, and so on. The rest is handed over to openarchitecture. Qingyun qingcloud will also help enterprises build group cloud and community cloud, provide some operation functions such as measurement module and statistical report, and improve the whole ecology in a plug-in way.
