D2iQ Platform Adds New Multi-Cloud, Multi-Cluster Capabilities


D2iQ has released updates to its D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP), enhancing organizations’ ability to streamline the deployment and management of Kubernetes workloads in Day 2 production environments. Of particular significance for AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) customers is the ability to more easily deploy and manage EKS Kubernetes clusters.

Among its new capabilities, DKP 2.3 makes it easier than ever to manage AWS EKS clusters and now also supports provisioning Kubernetes on the top-three public cloud providers–AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform–along with support for the Kubernetes distributions from each of these cloud providers: AWS EKS, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).

In addition, DKP 2.3 can now centrally configure and deploy applications per cluster in a multi-cluster environment, providing more flexibility and control when managing multi-cluster environments.

By adding support for provisioning Kubernetes clusters on the Google Cloud Platform, DKP 2.3 enables DKP users to centrally manage all their Kubernetes clusters within the three most popular public cloud provider services, making multi-cloud Kubernetes management easier and giving organizations more flexibility when it comes to public cloud infrastructure and Kubernetes distributions.

Additionally, DKP 2.3 provides support for attaching existing GKE clusters and deploying the DKP Day-2-ready platform applications, making GKE clusters production-ready and enabling organizations to centrally manage third-party cloud provider Kubernetes distributions of their choice (EKS, AKS, and GKE).

DKP 2.3 also includes two significant alert features to the D2iQ technology preview of DKP Insights, DKP’s self-service troubleshooting capability. Insights now prevents potential problems and downtimes by checking workload configuration against a set of best practices and suggesting improvements. DKP Insights alerts also are enhanced through a details page that includes information on the anomaly, root cause analysis (RCA), and suggested solutions to resolve the anomaly.

DKP 2.3 is generally available now.
