What's New for Apprenda 7

​The Platform has introduced the following features and enhancements. Also see the release notes for more information about bug fixes and additional improvements in each release.


Enhanced Kubernetes Support on the Apprenda Cloud Platform

The Apprenda Cloud Platform now supports adding a Kubernetes cluster to your Platform. The Platform will act as a management layer for any added cluster, configuring your applications and handling external routing, without changing the underlaying cluster or Kubernetes configurations. Application resource management polices, container registry controls, custom property assignment, and more can be managed through the Platform and configured before your applications are deployed to the cluster.

Using the Platform to manage your cluster will allow you to further separate the concerns of developers and operators. The on cluster deployments and policy enforcement will continue to be run by Kubernetes, however, developers and operators will be able to leverage the native features of the Platform to simplify application and resource management on the cluster.

Managing resource limits for Development Teams

Platform Operators are now able to set resource allocation limits for specific Development Teams. Global settings will still be enforced on all Development Teams that don't have limit overrides set.

See more about assigning resource limits for Development Team.

Per-component Application Bootstrap Policies

Platform Operators can now create Application Bootstrap Polices that will affect a component of an application. The Platform will implement these policies when an application is promoted and all deployed instances of that component will have the changes from the policy. This is different from the instance based policies where the Platform performs the changes for the policy when an instance of an application component is deployed.
