Kubermatic Releases KubeOne 1.1: New Autoscaler Helps Optimize Resource Usage

HAMBURG, NOVEMBER 17, 2020 — As KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America Virtual kicks off, Kubermatic, a multi-cloud Kubernetes automation software company that powers IT operations at scale, announces general availability of KubeOne 1.1.

KubeOne is an open source cluster lifecycle management tool for single Kubernetes clusters. It automates the deployment and Day 2 operations of Highly Available clusters for the cloud, the datacenter, and edge and IoT environments. The new release of KubeOne 1.1 adds a cluster autoscaler and the possibility to mirror Docker images onto a private registry. Private registries help organizations ease possible effects resulting from the introduction of Docker rate limits.

With the new autoscaler, users can now define the utilization threshold where nodes are automatically added to the cluster. In addition to removing manual effort, the new feature helps optimize resource usage and costs, while enabling heavy scaling strategies.

Registry Mirroring allows users to easily store all Docker images used for the Kubernetes components onto a private registry. This increases the stability and the longevity of Kubernetes installations in the light of Docker rate limits. Moreover, the release adds an OverwriteRegistry functionality, with which users can redirect the source for the installation to their private repository.

“As enterprise cloud native adoption accelerates, IT teams need to make sure that they automate as much of their Kubernetes operations before – not after – things get too complex. At the same time, they demand the flexibility to work with their infrastructure of choice without being locked-in,” said Kubermatic CEO Sebastian Scheele. “KubeOne is a great example of how open source software can help enterprises kick-start their cloud-native journey without sacrificing their independence.”
