Spot, a leading provider of software for modern CloudOps, has announced that Ocean by Spot has achieved Red Hat Operator certification for OpenShift.
Using Ocean on Red Hat OpenShift, companies have access to a fully managed data plane service to run pods and containers without the burden of having to deal with maintaining, patching, scaling, securing and life cycling the underlying worker nodes infrastructure. The Ocean by Spot Kubernetes Operator running on Red Hat OpenShift allows CloudOps teams to focus on building and managing applications rather than managing the infrastructure of their Kubernetes environments.
Ocean by Spot is a proven Kubernetes data plane service that provides a serverless infrastructure engine for running containers. Building on Spot’s advanced predictive analytics and automation, Ocean continuously monitors and analyses compute infrastructure to understand and predict pod, container and application resource needs. Using this analysis, Ocean continuously optimises cloud resource allocation in real time, ensuring dependable performance, fast scalability and up to 90% lower cloud infrastructure costs.
The Spot certified operator for OpenShift provides a new way of controlling an Ocean group from the Kubernetes cluster. This operator allows DevOps teams to create, configure and manage Ocean clusters by working with standard Kubernetes API. With the operator, users can now create, update, delete and monitor an Ocean group from an existing OpenShift cluster, using standard kubectl commands.
