Taking Kubernetes From Hybrid Multi-Cloud to Edge

KubeSphere v3.1.0 provides an enabling environment for users as they can deploy production workloads not just across clouds but also at the edge. Besides, the new Metering and Billing function helps IT administrators better understand infrastructure operating costs. Existing features of multi-cluster management, multi-tenant management, observability, DevOps, application lifecycle management, and microservices governance have also been enhanced to ensure better user experiences across clusters and clouds.

Commitment to Open-Source and Community

KubeSphere is making great strides on its international journey with over 100,000 downloads across 90 countries and regions to date. The KubeSphere console currently supports four official languages – English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Spanish.

“When you take a step back and reflect on how far KubeSphere has come, it is not surprising to find that it has become one of the most widely used container platforms not just in our country, but also around the world,” Ray added. “Our contributors from all corners of the world have shown us what open source is all about. And this is exactly what has been driving us to push the limits of what’s possible with Kubernetes.”

KubeSphere v3.1.0 remains committed to fully open source with an ever-expanding ecosystem, also helps developers to deploy code with several clicks on the friendly console, and brings integrated observability and powerful Kubernetes DevOps strategies for the Ops team.
