Manage up to 3 clusters and 50 vCPUs for free

Wayfinder helps you efficiently manage cloud Kubernetes (EKS, AKS, GKE) to create clusters in minutes, enforce security easily, and reduce operational bottlenecks. Automate cloud account creation, spin up standardized clusters and enforce time-limited, fine-grained user permissions to make Day 1 and Day 2 management easy.

What you need

In order to install Wayfinder, you will need the following:

  • The Wayfinder command-line application. This enables Wayfinder to install itself into your choice of cloud provider. Binaries are available for Linux (Intel architectures) and Mac OS (currently only Intel architecture). Get the CLI
  • The ability to create public DNS records. Wayfinder reserves public IP addresses in your chosen cloud provider, and you will need to update DNS records to point to these during the installation.
  • Credentials for your cloud provider. Wayfinder can be installed into AWS, GCP or Azure - you will need appropriate credentials and permissions to install Wayfinder into one of these services.
  • An OpenID Connect (OIDC) compliant identity provider. Wayfinder uses your existing IDP to grant access to its CLI tool and web-based UI

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will it cost to run Wayfinder?

Use of Wayfinder is free (for up to 3 clusters and 50 vCPUs), however installing Wayfinder will create a managed Kubernetes cluster in the cloud account you select - this will incur charges from your cloud provider at their published rates. Our default plan for the Wayfinder management cluster will cost in the region of $200 per month. This does not include the costs of any infrastructure that you provision.

Where can I find documentation on Wayfinder?

All of the documentation on Wayfinder can be found at our docs.appvia site:  https://docs.appvia.io
