Fission is a serverless platform for Kubernetes – and enables an AWS lambda-like easy experience for anyone new to the Kubernetes platform.
InfraCloud has been one of major contributor to Fission and maintainer for last of couple of releases. We have built key capabilities in Fission and we are driving roadmap along with community.
BotKube is a messaging bot that lets you monitor, debug and run checks on your Kubernetes resources straight from your favorite messaging platform such as Slack, MS Teams, etc.
It all started with a Infranthon - internal hackathons at InfraCloud and later opensourced. Along with community, Infranauts have been the contributing to BotKube. Recently it got acquired by Kubeshop.
Krius is a CLI tool designed to install all the observability stack components (namely Prometheus and Thanos so far) needed for monitoring deployed applications in your Kubernetes cluster(s).
We have recently launched Alpha version of Krius and opensourced the project for the community to take it for spin. The next steps are to support multi-tenancy deployments in Thanos-Prometheus architecture.
kbrew is a CLI tool for Kubernetes which makes installing any complex stack easy in
Kbrew is another homegrown project at InfraCloud that Infranauts have majorly been contributing to build a quck and simple way to set up complex stacks.
Tinkerbell is a project for bare metal provisioning and running workflows around provisioning. InfraCloud team has been instrumental in designing and open sourcing this project from an early stage with Equinix Metal (Earlier Packet Inc).
Contribution Details: InfraCloud’s experience with open source, go language and architecture was crucial in open sourcing and building a community around the project.
Thanos leverages the Prometheus 2.0 storage format to cost-efficiently store historical metric data in any object storage while retaining fast query latencies. Additionally, it provides a global query view across all Prometheus installations and can merge data from Prometheus HA pairs on the fly.
Contribution Details: InfraCloud team worked on the compactor component of Thanos, where if the compactor receives non-empty XOR chunks, instead of Thanos halting, it continues down sampling data chunks.
Crossplane is an open-source Kubernetes add-on that supercharges your Kubernetes clusters, enabling you to provision and manage infrastructure, services, and applications from kubectl.
Contribution Details: Support for Crossplane to be installed as a managed app along with the changes needed for autodevops to consume InfraCloud added a Postgres instance provisioned by Crossplane.
Kanister is an extensible open-source framework for application-level data management on Kubernetes.
Contribution Details - InfraCloud has had several contributions to the Kanister project, from adding support for Kanister in several other toolings and developing the Kanister operator for Kubernetes.
Jaeger helps monitor and troubleshoot transactions in complex distributed systems.
Contribution Details: Jaeger open tracing’s python client had some missing features needed by a customer. We developed those features and got them merged into the jaeger python client.
YugabyteDB is a distributed SQL database. Rook is a CNCF sandboxed project which provides control plane orchestration for storage providers.
Contribution Details: We helped design and develop deployments of YugaByte for various platforms, specifically - CloudFormation on AWS, Using Terraform for all three clouds - AWS, GCP, Azure; GCP & Azure marketplace.
We also helped write the first version of YugaByte Operator for Kubernetes.
ElectricFlow is a product that enables large organizations to do release management & DevOps better.
Contribution Details: InfraCloud team worked on plugins for Docker, Kubernetes, Mesosphere, OpenShift. We also added support for the provisioning cluster in GKE, AKS. Currently, only Docker plugin is open source, and the rest of the plugins are available for commercial buyers of the platform.
The Calico Kubernetes controllers are deployed in a Kubernetes cluster. The different controllers monitor the Kubernetes API and perform actions based on cluster state.
Contribution Details: The Kubernetes controllers for project calico were re-written from Python to Go for solving some issues with the existing design. InfraCloud engineers worked on the early stage of the project and built up the first version.
Benthos is a declarative data streaming service that solves a wide range of data engineering problems with simple, chained, stateless processing steps.
Contribution Details: Benthos websocket connector didn’t support TLS based server and client authentication. We enhanced that connector and added support for TLS auth and got it merged in Benthos base code.
This project is OpenStorage’s implementation for clustered environments, enabling CSI (Common Storage Interface) in Kubernetes.
Contribution Details: As part of a software-defined storage company’s commercial product work, a lot of contribution was made to the upstream LibOpenStorage project
Omni project provides Openstack API for multiple clouds so you can manage instances from multiple clouds.
Contribution Details: This project was initiated by Platform9 Inc. and is part of OpenStack now. Two of InfraCloud engineers are the top 2 contributors to the project. The project Omni now lives here.
Ephemeral.run is an open-source project created to provide development teams with full application environments for every PR – before merging.
Contribution Details: InfraCloud worked with OpenGov to develop a developer workflow solution for Kubernetes. The framework and solution were open-sourced by OpenGov and presented at the CNCF Webinar. A patent also has been filed for innovation.
Kyverno is a policy engine designed for Kubernetes. It can validate, mutate, and generate configurations using admission controls and background scans.
Contribution Details: The contributions involves adding a helm pre-delete hook, which deletes the Kyverno webhooks (Validating and mutating) before clean uninstallation of Kyverno. Fixing schema & policy validations. Added support of separate attestor type for secrets and KMS in Kyverno policy.
Hierarchical namespaces make it easier to share your cluster by making namespaces more powerful. For e.g., you can create additional namespaces under your team’s namespace, even if you don’t have cluster-level permission to create one, & easily apply policies like RBAC & Network Policies across all namespaces in your team.
Contribution Details: Adding a webhook rule to deny editing labels by user on propagated objects.
