Fairwinds Launches New Open Source-as-a-Service Platform for More Secure and Reliable Kubernetes Deployments


Fairwinds, a leading provider of cloud-native infrastructure solutions, has launched a new SaaS platform for DevOps teams that manage multiple Kubernetes clusters and need visibility into potential problems before they arise. The platform, called Fairwinds Insights, leverages an extensible architecture and launches with a curated set of open source security, reliability, and auditing tools. The initial suite of tools includes Fairwinds Polaris, Fairwinds Goldilocks, and Aqua Security's Kube-hunter.

Fairwinds Insights solves a few problems faced by DevOps teams. First, it eliminates the time-intensive process of researching, learning and deploying the great Kubernetes auditing tools that are available. Second, it automatically organizes and normalizes data from each tool, so engineers get prioritized recommendations across all clusters. Finally, it enables DevOps teams to proactively manage the hand-off from development to production. The platform can integrate into deployment pipelines so misconfigurations can be identified and fixed before releasing to production.

"Many DevOps teams have sprawling Kubernetes environments, and want to get a handle on it, but with lack of resources and expertise it's not a priority. Fairwinds Insights is the first platform that solves this problem by leveraging best-of-breed, community-built open source tooling and operationalizing it in a way DevOps teams can use at scale," said Joe Pelletier, Fairwinds' VP of Strategy.

"Fairwinds Insights has made it much easier for us to plan infrastructure improvements," said Dominic O'Kane, Senior Cloud Engineer at Sidecar. "The platform allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the health and performance of our clusters, trace down problematic configuration affecting our workloads, and strengthen our security posture. All from a clean, centralized interface."

Fairwinds Insights is in public beta and free for any early adopter who wants to try the software during the beta period. The free tier, located at fairwinds.com/insights, is limited to a seven-day history for results, and up to two clusters.

Fairwinds plans to curate and integrate additional open source Kubernetes auditing tools to the Insights platform. Through its new Integration Partnership Program maintainers of open source or proprietary software are able to integrate with Fairwinds Insights.
