  • Easy and secure deployment, management, and troubleshooting of containerized apps through a powerful GUI. Deep Kubernetes expertise is not needed.
  • Self-service container management system creation. You can increase your software productivity and reduce errors by building streamlined, automated workflows based on Git.
  • Software delivery automation with GitOPS integration.
  • Container environment security provision with RBAC.
  • Edge devices’ software management.

These options make centralized management and multi-cluster environments security possible for the platform managers.
