The Fully-Automated Path to Production Kubernetes

Kismatic Enterprise Toolkit (KET) is Apprenda’s commercially supported and fully open-source Kubernetes offering. KET provides a common system for enterprise users of all industries to run reliable and trusted deployments of Kubernetes on any infrastructure — with a focus on the private cloud. In highly regulated industries, the shift to public cloud has happened at a slower pace. Consequently, Kubernetes adoption in the enterprise data center presents foreboding challenges that most organizations deem unsolved — until now.

KET is the first commercially supported offering that provides a set of default cluster services that go beyond basic automation of installing and running Kubernetes on a few nodes or on a laptop. Users can expect proven and tested defaults for networking, monitoring, logging, service routing, storage and more as KET matures and solve the “last-mile” complexities of running microservices and distributed applications in the enterprise.
