Kubernetes resources are managed around API’s and not templates. The API runs continuously in an automation loop to reconcile changes and adjust for drift.
A control plane model ensures that operation and development teams adhere to an organization’s security, compliance or governance policies defined in the APIs provided by the control plane.
A universal control plane like the one Crossplane enables, enables teams to have a single location where they can easily capture automation.
Administrators have detailed control of their infrastructure and can define environment specifics and policies with the help of Crossplanes strong separation of concerns. Empowering Admins to focus on what they do best.
SREs and DevOps engineers compose cloud APIs using Crossplane’s Composition feature. Policies, permissions, and quotas for resources are encapsulated behind an API and continuously reconciled by the control plane.
App teams can self-service infrastructure safely by consuming APIs built by platform teams and provided by Crossplane. This workflow was designed with GitOps best practices in mind and is easily integrated into existing pipelines.
