Kubermatic announced the release of Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP) 2.15. KKP 2.15 includes the first technical preview of the new KKP installer and external cluster support. The new installer is responsible for installing/upgrading the operator and auxiliary components. The installer can also be used to set up a KKP master cluster. The installer is also able to take care of upgrades, reducing the manual migration steps.
Simplified cluster management
Kubermatic also introduced the technical preview of its new etcd-launcher for facilitated user cluster management. According to the announcement, the new etcd-launcher provides a wrapper which is capable of running the etcd ring and allows for more advanced operational and Day 2 capabilities. After enabling etcd-launcher users will be able to change the size of the etcd ring up to nine nodes. The etcd-launcher also enables the etcd-ring to recover from volume or node automatically without external intervention.
KKP also automates the deployment and Day 2 operations. It automates Kubernetes clusters across any infrastructure from one single UI. Operators can also benefit from a higher degree of flexibility and freedom of choice in their set-up. With the latest release, users can connect any existing Kubernetes cluster to the system and display their details.
