D2iQ, the enterprise Kubernetes provider for smart cloud-native applications, has joined hands with GitLab to automate and simplify the deployment of containerized workloads, accelerating software delivery cycle times. Through this partnership, users can now run the GitLab Kubernetes Operator on the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP), providing consistent upgrades, deployment, and security policies for infrastructures and applications.
Enterprise organizations can also safely deploy a project to DKP from a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline with a cluster attached to GitLab, providing enhanced flexibility and agility.
According to the findings in the “Kubernetes in the Enterprise Annual Report,” a lack of IT resources was the most prevalent challenge in growing Kubernetes adoption across the enterprise. Full integration of GitOps workflows along with declarative APIs enables easier management of Kubernetes clusters in production environments. DKP reduces the operational loads on DevOps teams so they can focus on innovation, not just supporting infrastructure.
In addition, DKP’s user-friendly control plane provides a variety of development approaches using GitLab, including ongoing delivery and deployment with FluxCD, which is designed for Kubernetes and supports multi-cluster and multi-tenant use cases.
