+ Software installer and text frontend for KubeOps HUB
KubeOps SINA is our tool to ease software delivery even in complex environments. With a usability inspired by helm and docker, it enables software developers to create self-sufficient packages. They can be published, downloaded and installed via our hub. SINA can be adjusted and extended to different needs*.
* Batch engine is adujstable and extendable by plugins
Deployment with SINA
For software-manufacturers SINA offers the possibility to release their Kubernetes software as a single self-sufficient deployment file. To do so, the manifacturer packages all needed deployment artefacts via SINA build command.
With SINA push, the packages gets uploaded to the kubeOps Hub giving either access only to the specific customer or even to the whole community if desired.
This simplifies the download process for the clients, as they just need to run a SINA install command to install the packages into their cluster, even behind a proxy (air Gap).
For customers planning to deploy a helmchart SINA gives supports at downloading and packaging all needed container images and artefacts into a single, sel-sufficient package with SINA build command.
By publishing via SINA push the package can be downloaded from kubeOps Hub as a single installation fine. All relevant dependencies are managed by SINA insuring installation.
Therefore, installing software with SINA into your cluster simplifies, secures and eases the process of software deployments into your environments.
Deployment without SINA
The classic way of software delivery in the cloud cosmos is using helm-charts and container images.
Requiering software manufactureres to publish the helm-chart, uploadcontainer images into a public registry and provide their customers with a list of all requiered artefacts.
Customers then have to pull these images, configure the helm-chart according to the environment specific settings, check all checksums etc.
this often even gets more complex in productive environments. As these tend to have an outgoing proxy preventing broad access to the internet.
