What’s New

NEW!

EKS & GKE Domain Clusters

This release adds support for installing Spektra on EKS or GKE, using Helm charts, to create the Domain cluster.
NEW!

EKS & GKE Tenant Clusters

This release adds support for attaching EKS or GKE clusters as Tenant clusters. Using the catalog feature, applications can be easily deployed and managed on these clusters.
NEW!

DR across UA clusters

Using easy-click options, Customers can setup DR across UA clusters by simply selecting the source & target clusters, the networks for the replication, and the replication interval.
NEW!

UI & Stats Enhancements

Extensive changes have gone into stats management and the User Interface to make the user interaction simple, intuitive, and fast.

Support for Application Catalog

Tenants can create catalogs to help centralize the deployment and management of applications across Kubernetes clusters. Tenant administrators can install and configure catalogs to group applications in projects with the following feature capabilities:
  • The ability to create and share catalogs with one or more Tenant projects.
  • Maintain and deploy multiple versions of an application across clusters.
  • Use helm charts or YAML/JSON specifications to import configurations to a catalog.
Catalogs work seamlessly with replication, fire drill, and migration features.

OpenShift Cluster Support

RHCOS OpenShift 4.9 Cluster can be attached to Spektra Tenants. The following capabilities are supported:
  • Attaching OpenShift clusters to Spektra using kubeconfig for a consolidated view of multiple clusters in the domain.
  • Extending support of Projects to OpenShift clusters.
  • Using application catalogs to maintain and deploy multiple versions of an application spec on OpenShift clusters.

Features

Centralized Multi-Cluster Management

Take advantage of a single control plane to deliver everything you need to provision and manage the lifecycle of multiple clusters, stateless and stateful applications and data mobility of your workloads. Spektra is built to cater to the needs of your business – from air-gapped on-prem deployments to hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructures.

Policy-based Multi-tenancy

Spektra allows administrators to create Tenants to allow physical resource boundaries around their Kubernetes clusters. Additionally, within a tenant, administrators can also create Projects that allows them not just to share compute and I/O resources within a cluster but also makes it possible to stretch resources across different clusters within the Tenant.

Projects

As Kubernetes grows in popularity at your organization, the number of users, teams and enterprise initiatives that it supports will also keep growing. Managing a large number of namespaces individually becomes a significant challenge, so Spektra supports grouping namespaces into projects and managing them as a group. With Spektra, you get a full set of tools for managing projects, including allocating resources and applications and configuring user access.

Application Migration

In hybrid cloud environments, application deployment on specific clusters is driven by business needs and deployment strategies. These may change over time. Spektra gives you the flexibility to move workloads, and their associated data, from one cluster to another directly from its dashboard through a 1-step process.

Data Mobility/Resiliency

Spektra unifies the Ultima data plane view across clusters. Using the dashboard, users can easily set up DR policies for their persistent volumes to enable replication of data from one cluster to another, also allowing replication across different cloud environments.

Application Catalogs

Spektra comes with a robust application catalog capability that centralizes application template management and versioning. Developers can load their applications to a catalog and deploy applications directly to any target cluster or clusters and have the flexibility to manage multiple versions for canary deployments.

Granular Role-based Access Control

As more users across an organization rely on applications containerized in Kubernetes, managing access becomes an ongoing challenge. To ensure compliance and control access, Spektra has policy-driven, role-based access control (RBAC), enabling administrators to control access via roles that function per project or cluster-wide. Now administrators get the visibility they need to assess and ensure compliance with Center for Internet Security (CIS) best practices while also minimizing the resources devoted to access control.

LDAP/AD Integration

Spektra integrates with both lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) and active directory (AD) to enable user authentication and streamlined user access to resources.

Observability and Reporting

Rely on Spektra to provide the real-time and historical data you need to identify and troubleshoot problems in your multi-cluster domain. The Spektra dashboard consolidates performance metrics, logs, and events in a feature-rich UI that is comprehensive in detail yet easy to consume.
