Automated Kubernetes Operations and Troubleshooting

Delivering production applications with Kubernetes? Give your SRE, DevOps and Software Engineering teams a convenient and automated way to operate and troubleshoot their components. Provide easy visibility into production state, configuration changes and automate typical processes, such as understanding failure reasons, scaling up or down, and rolling back.

How StackPulse Helps

Operate production-grade applications in Kubernetes without having to train your team to become Kubernetes experts.

The Challenge

Kubernetes is a powerful, but very complex system. Most of the production Kubernetes clusters today are based on managed offerings (such as EKS, GKE, AKS, etc.) because they make  building and using Kubernetes clusters easier. But when it comes to operating applications deployed on these clusters, troubleshooting, and understanding the reasons behind a failure, the majority of organizations still rely on dedicated skill-sets from their SRE, DevOps and Software Engineering teams. This isn’t a scalable approach.

The StackPulse Solution

Inspired by operational practices from the leading SaaS vendors, StackPulse gives you a set of tools that makes operating and troubleshooting your applications on Kubernetes easy and safe. Use the interfaces of your choice, such as Slack, and get information about failure reasons, production changes and more collected and delivered for you. Trigger typical mitigation scenarios, such as scale up/down, rollback and more in a safe and controlled environment.

Why StackPulse?

StackPulse gives organizations running Kubernetes a powerful set of capabilities to augment their existing incident response practices.

Ready-made Kubernetes Operators

Based on learnings from a collective experience of Kubernetes operators, these ready-made patterns will make the life of SREs, DevOps and Software Engineers much easier, as they help handle typical operation and troubleshooting scenarios safely and efficiently. Below are just some examples that can be used out-of-the-box or modified to suit your individual needs:

Visibility into Production Configuration State

StackPulse integrates with CI/CD, Progressive Deployment Operators, Kubernetes Audit Logs, and Monitoring Systems to provide a single pane of glass into all changes and events in the cluster, helping triage and troubleshoot problems. With StackPulse, you can:

  • View all configuration change events
  • Track and audit progressive deployments and rollbacks
  • Follow the changes in modules that are being deployed
  • Relate production alerts to configuration changes
