Kore Operate

Multi-cloud Kubernetes platform

Kore Operate enables teams to self-serve resources to build and ship applications quickly and securely while leveraging containerised technologies, open-source and the cost efficiencies of multi-cloud.

Truly multi-cloud

Sometimes it’s necessary for users to adopt multiple Cloud providers which offer additional redundancy, but at a price. Each provider has its own tools and unique administrative processes. Someone who is an administrator for EKS may not understand how to administer equivalent services on GKE and vice versa. Kore Operate offers a consolidated user interface that works for GKE, AKS and EKS. Whether you are standing up a Kubernetes cluster on Azure, AWS or GCP, the user interface and the behaviors are exactly the same. The administrator only needs to understand how to use Kore Operate. The intricacies of AWS, Azure and GCP are hidden beneath a single, consistent user interface. 

  1. Security

    Kubernetes is highly configurable, which therefore makes it highly vulnerable from a security standpoint. It is possible to implement Kubernetes and inadvertently leave security holes in your configuration. In 2020 alone, several high profile data breaches were traced back to misconfigurations in Kubernetes clusters, allowing bad actors to take advantage of overly permissive security roles.

    Appvia has an established track record of working with Kubernetes in highly secure environments, leading to the creation of Kore Operate, which provides Kubernetes implementations that simultaneously observe security best-practices. These best practices extend to all supported environments such as EKS, GKS and AKS. Our entire implementation is rooted in the concept of least privilege.

  2. Scalability

    Auto-scaling is a multi-headed beast. It not only depends on the technical ability of a provider to scale a set of resources, but also relies on people to correctly configure it.  

    Kore Operate is based on a centralised management scheme. Administrators can configure how auto-scaling will work based on guidelines that include stringent security measures. When a developer scales an application, those guidelines will enforce the correct implementation.

  3. Cloud cost

    Cloud providers offer detailed analysis of your costs, but tracking costs on a real-time basis is difficult. Most customers wait until the monthly bill arrives to evaluate costs. By then it could be too late...

     Let's say someone made a mistake and utilised an expensive service or resource. Because of the billing cycle, you  might not realise this costly mistake for another four weeks until you’re stuck with a bill that’s far greater than expected. . 

     Kore Operate provides real-time information about your spending. This bird's eye view can also be filtered to show cost attribution back to the team that requested the resources, ensuring that you  can see where your  cloud spend is today, where it will be tomorrow and how those costs align to your  teams and products.

Cloud Provider Setup
Cloud Provider Setup

Admin configures the cloud providers of their choice - AWS, Azure, GPC - so that Kore can manage infrastructure provisioning within that cloud. Kore operates on the principle of least privilege for credentials to minimize security risk.

Kubernetes Cluster Plans
Kubernetes Cluster Plans

Admin can use best-practice defaults provided by Kore, or further configure cluster plans to comply with internal requirements. Default plans model standard application stages to isolate production workloads.

Admins are alerted to cluster
security risks via rules provided by Kore and any rules they have added.

Teams

Developers can set up teams themselves, easily onboarding new mekw-mbers via a simple email invitation.

Kore creates an isolated cloud account for each team, with RBAC (role based access control) for team mekw-mbers in the Kore API and Kubernetes, This isolation enables increased security and clearer cost accounting.

Self-service for team, cluster and namespace creation enables teams to get started in a matter of minutes.

Kore leverages public cloud Kubernetes, ensuring global availability and 'infinite' capacity, 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.

Robot tokens and code snippets enable teams to easily integrate team CI/CD with Kore. Kore provides automation to build, store and deploy container images, enabling quick iteration without the security risk and toil of copy-pasting credentials.

Preconfigured clusters and namespace that map to developer workflows, with secure defaults, enable teams to focus on delivering business value.

Frequently asked questions

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.

What is the pricing structure for Kore Operate?

Pricing is per developer seat so you can scale workloads without incurring extra costs. Please reach out to sales@appvia.io for comprehensive pricing information.
