Mirantis has announced Lens Pro with features for enterprise users that simplify the developer experience working with Kubernetes by adding on-demand live support, easy setup for container image scanning and vulnerability reporting, and a built-in local Kubernetes cluster. According to the company, Lens Pro simplifies the inner development loop – the iterative process that a developer goes through when they write, build, and debug code – for more options for testing,
Besides the on-demand support, Lens Desktop Kube can be used to spin up a local Kubernetes development environment with a click of a button. The development environment is powered by a virtual machine built in the Lens desktop application, providing developers a fully-integrated solution for Kubernetes development of cloud-native applications.
The new Lens Container Security feature set delivers capabilities that improve the developer’s ability to uncover flaws earlier in the development cycle (local development), saving time, money and helping to prevent potentially devastating issues later. With this feature, developers can see Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) reporting directly in their local development environment in the correct context across any platform or architecture.
Lens Pro is for enterprise users and priced at $19.90 per month per seat or $199 per year per seat. Licenses can be purchased directly from Mirantis or its partners. Lens Personal remains free for non-commercial open source projects, education, small business, and startups.
