Loft v3 Helps Simplify Virtual Cluster Management, Optimize Costs, And More


Loft Labs, provider of developer tooling and multi-tenancy software for Kubernetes, has announced Loft v3 with unprecedented capabilities and flexibility for platform teams to build and enable their development teams with a self-service Kubernetes.

Loft v3 features a Fully Redesigned User Interface that improves navigation organized by Projects, Templates, and Clusters. It includes Projects to easily group different types of virtual clusters and spaces together logically for teams to work on while also allowing administrators to define resource limits, configurations, and access controls. This gives teams autonomy with guardrails that administrators configure for specific projects.

Version Control and Syncing Templates in Loft v3 simplify making updates and propagating them across the enterprise by enabling templates for virtual clusters, spaces, and apps to be versioned. Also, Deeper Argo CD Integration automatically recognizes virtual clusters created in Loft to add them to Argo CD – including automatic configuration of appropriate user permissions and access control settings for the virtual clusters in Argo. Argo CD users can now deploy to the virtual cluster without any additional effort.

GitOps-Friendly Deployments gives users the choice of three available options to operate Loft: the newly-designed Loft UI with simplified navigation; an integration to manage with GitOps; a built-in YAML editor to manage Loft resources the same way as any other Kubernetes objects.

Loft v3 now also supports the use of multiple single sign-on (SSO) providers at the same time to help accommodate – even within one enterprise – different groups that are using different SSO technologies for authentication and secure access. And now platform engineers and administrators have fine-grain quota controls over memory and CPU, as well as sleep mode utilization which is a unique feature of Loft to help save costs when resources are not being used, and automatically put to sleep.
