Is Kore Operate a SaaS product?
No, Kore Operate is installed by Appvia's professional services team, our partners or, alternatively, by your team in your Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Storage or Microsoft Azure cloud account.
Does Kore Operate have its own Kubernetes distribution?
No, Kore Operate builds on top of public cloud Kubernetes, ensuring global availability and 'infinite' capacity. It then layers on additional secure PSPs and networking configuration, monitoring and alerting for security policies, RBAC and autoscaling to ensure the clusters are enterprise-ready.
Backing on to public cloud Kubernetes gives our customers global availability and ‘infinite’ scale, as well as minimising operational overhead.
How is Kore Operate different from other Kubernetes cloud platforms?
Kore is a lightweight platform that can be installed and onboarding developers in a day, and can be removed without affecting running applications or cloud accounts. Kore unlocks the full power of cloud by using cloud-managed Kubernetes and enabling access to cloud services. It enables full Developer self-service of infrastructure, Kubernetes clusters and cloud services. It automates the creation of cloud tenant accounts for teams, speeding up the developer journey.
A strong security posture is at the heart of the platform, with the least privilege access, policy, auditing and established best practices across the product and downstream services. It offers full cloud-cost management, including predictive costs and cloud cost comparison.
Does Appvia offer professional services to help with cloud-native ways of working?
Yes, we have deep expertise in cloud-native and Kubernetes with years of proven experience helping enterprises, including the UK Home Office and Bank of England, to deliver software faster, with more security and resilience. Learn more about our consultancy services.
Is Kore Operate multi-cloud?
Yes, Kore Operate supports Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Storage (GCS) and Microsoft Azure (Azure), and gives developers access to managed cloud Kubernetes as well as the public cloud services that applications need.
Does Kore Operate support on prem Kubernetes?
No, Kore Operate is exclusively focused on public cloud, and as such is able to unlock the full functionality of public cloud.
How is infrastructure charged with Kore Operate?
Kore Operate uses the customer’s public cloud account to provision infrastructure, so the customer is charged directly by the public cloud. Kore Operate includes tooling to predict and manage actual infrastructure costs.
Is Kore Operate open source?
No, but an open source version is in the works and will be available soon.
Are clusters in Kore Operate multi-tenant?
No, each team has its own cluster to ensure isolation and clear cost tracking. Coming soon, customers will be able to override this default for cases when it makes sense for teams to share a cluster.
Does Kore Operate support Windows?
Yes, as Windows support is provided by underlying public cloud Kubernetes.
Am I locked into using Kore Operate once I have applications running?
Absolutely not. Kore Operate leverages your public cloud account to create team accounts and cloud infrastructure; you can continue to use these accounts and resources without using Kore Operate.
What is the pricing structure for Kore Operate?
