Our Management Platform
Spectro Cloud is the only Kubernetes management platform that provides Enterprises with the flexibility to deploy the Kubernetes infrastructure stacks that they need into any environment they are present in, while alleviating day 2 operational headaches for those stacks.
What is Spectro Cloud
Spectro Cloud is an enterprise Kubernetes management platform that removes tradeoffs between infrastructure stack flexibility and ease of use. Spectro Cloud provides a managed service like experience to Enterprises that need control over and management of their entire Kubernetes infrastructure stacks, from operating system to Kubernetes version, network and storage integrations, and security, monitoring, load balancing, and others.
With multiple deployment options (on prem or SaaS management plane) and support for the most common private and public clouds, Spectro Cloud manages your Kubernetes clusters where and how you want them.
What we don't do
Spectro Cloud does not hold you to a rigid prebaked infrastructure stack or lock you into a specific set of software development or CI/CD tools. Spectro Cloud is focused on Kubernetes and supporting infrastructure, leaving you with the freedom to select the tools that best fit your organization.
The Spectro Cloud modern Kubernetes management platform
Users can deploy and manage their Kubernetes clusters in the cloud environments they need - Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Azure, VMware, or even bare metal.
Cluster & infrastructure management (lifecycle management)
Cluster profiles / layers / packs: The core of Spectro Cloud’s initial offering is the Cluster Profile concept, which provides a means by which users can declaratively define an end to end Kubernetes distribution in layers, from operating system flavor and version to Kubernetes version, storage, networking, etc.
Users can then deploy Kubernetes clusters from Cluster Profiles, and our Cluster-API based orchestrator ensures that these deployed clusters maintain consistency against the declarative profile via continual reconciliation with the Cluster Profile desired state. A Cluster Profile can utilize smart tagging to indicate that any cluster defined from the Cluster Profile is automatically updated based on selected maintenance policies.
OS management: Spectro Cloud’s cluster profiles include OS flavors and versions. These can be managed via the Spectro Cloud management platform. Updates to operating systems are automatically exposed within the Spectro Cloud system.
Kubernetes management: Kubernetes is on a rapid innovation treadmill. Spectro Cloud quickly makes new versions available for use in cluster profiles.
Multicluster management, with automatic cluster updates: Spectro Cloud provides a single pane of glass for management of clusters across multiple properties. With the cluster profile concept and desired state management, users can rest assured that the state of deployed clusters will be reconciled with the selections in the cluster profile.
Management & operations
SaaS based or on prem multitenant management portal: The management portal is the “brains” supporting a managed K8S service experience to users.
API first management system: The SaaS based or on prem-deployed management system provides a managed service- like K8s service experience to users and exposes all functionality via an API that can be used for integration into other systems.
RBAC: Admins can use RBAC features to control access to tenants, projects, and Cluster Profiles. These features could be used to, for example, restrict use of “GPU” cluster types to specific data science teams.
Maintenance policies: Admins can set maintenance policies in the system that, for example, dictate particular timeframes for updates, as well as methodology for update rollout (e.g., canary).
Reporting: Admins and users can get detailed reporting on their clusters and utilization. This supports visibility and accountability for teams.
Metering and quotas: Metering and quotas provide an easy means by which to provide and enforce guidelines on consumption within clusters and teams, ensuring no surprises. Supportability: Enterprise solutions require usability and Enterprise support. Specto Cloud supports its customers with engineers that have long histories in enterprise and cloud infrastructure and 24x7 responses.
Technology & ecosystem integrations
Our CNCF-certified SaaS management system provides a single source of truth for Kubernetes infrastructure stack policies and status. Our cluster profile concept extends Kubernetes’ desired state maintenance model to the entire infrastructure stack around Kubernetes, removing the operational pain of managing versions or configurations for individual clusters.
