Release Notes for Apprenda 7.0

The following are release notes for Apprenda Cloud Platform version 7.

7.0.0

Major Features

Enhanced Support for Kubernetes

A Kubernetes cluster can now be added to the Platform. Once added, the Platform will manage a dedicated Namespace on the cluster. Developers can create applications with Kubernetes components, upload, and configure them on the Platform. When the applications are deployed, the Platform will inject configuration options for things like resource management or Custom Properties and will handle creating Service to route traffic to the the application. Platform Operations have the ability to create Resource Policies that can be applied to Kubernetes components in order to better manage resources on the cluster.

See more about adding a cluster to your Platform and creating applications with Kubernetes components.
