Organizations are looking to standardize how to consume infrastructure and run applications as multi-cloud becomes a pervasive strategy
Among enterprises that use cloud, 84% have a multi-cloud strategy for their mission critical applications. However, each cloud provider including AWS, Azure, GCP, AliCloud have their own proprietary control planes, APIs, controllers, tools, and UI. This results in enterprises being unable to achieve workload portability across cloud providers. Open Source Crossplane addresses all of this complexity
We created Open Source Crossplane to standardize infrastructure and application management using the same API-centric, declarative configuration and automation approach pioneered by Kubernetes. Crossplane allows Platform teams to utilize multiple vendors and expose self-service APIs for easy consumption without having to write any code.
Crossplane extends Kubernetes adding APIs and controllers that enable it to manage resources and services from multiple cloud and infrastructure vendors.
Platform and application teams can now author configurations for databases, caches, networking, and other services living outside of their Kubernetes clusters.
Configuration is continuously reconciled by Crossplane and Day 1 and Day 2 automation is handled out of the box making infrastructure easier to manage
