Platform9 5.5 Release Improves Developer Productivity, Simplifies Cloud-Native Operations
Updates include new IDE for developers, integrated ArgoCD-as-a-Service, enhanced remote cluster monitoring, and improved management of imported EKS, AKS, and GKE clusters.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Platform9, the world's #1 open distributed cloud service, today announced new platform capabilities that make it easier for cloud-native development and operations teams to build, scale, and operate apps and Kubernetes clusters in the cloud, on-premises, and at the edge.
While Ops teams wrestle with the complexities of operating production Kubernetes deployments, application developers need to learn many essential elements of Kubernetes to run even the simplest of apps. This steep learning curve and new patterns to build and scale cloud-native applications can slow adoption of Kubernetes and time to market.
"One of the biggest challenges cloud-native developers face is understanding how applications run at scale in microservices architectures," said Chris Jones, Platform9 group product manager. "We focused almost exclusively on this issue in our latest release. To help solve the complexity, we built a brand-new developer IDE and launched ArgoCD-as-a-Service. Our goal is to dramatically improve developer productivity with capabilities that make it very easy to build, troubleshoot, and scale cloud-native apps."

Along with these updates, the user interface (UI) has been completely overhauled.
"This next-generation UI was entirely redesigned to provide a modern and seamless user experience, with the goal of simplifying operating cloud-native applications in real-time," said John Ruddell, Platform9 Principal UI/UX engineer. "We revamped how users navigate between multiple SaaS products with an application switcher in the sidebar. The entire system is dynamic: All the Kubernetes objects such as Pods, Services, and ReplicaSets are mapped together and data loading now exposes errors inline for each dashboard/view."
ArgoCD-as-a-Service is currently in early access preview for DevOps teams to kick-start their GitOps automation journey. ArgoCD is automatically connected to clusters that are managed by Platform9. Users deploy an application, which is automatically synchronized to the Git repository.
