Banzai Cloud’s Pipeline provides a platform which allows enterprises to develop, deploy and scale container-based applications. It leverages best-of-breed cloud components, such as Kubernetes, to create a highly productive, yet flexible environment for developers and operations teams alike. Strong security measures—multiple authentication backends, fine-grained authorization, dynamic secret management, automated secure communications between components using TLS, vulnerability scans, static code analysis, etc.—are a tier zero feature of the Pipeline platform, which we strive to automate and enable for all enterprises.

Business continuity is a key requirement for our enterprise users, and it becomes exponentially more important in a cloud native environment. The Banzai Cloud Platform operates in such an environment, deploying and managing large scale container-based applications. It leverages best-of-breed cloud components, such as Kubernetes, to create a highly productive, yet flexible environment, and provides a safety net to backup and restore cluster and application states during the lifecycle of the cluster.

Banzai Cloud’s Pipeline platform is an operating system which allows enterprises to develop, deploy and scale container-based applications. It leverages best-of-breed cloud components, such as Kubernetes, to create a highly productive, yet flexible environment for developers and operation teams alike. One of the main features of the Pipeline platform is that it allows enterprises to run workloads cost effectively by mixing spot instances with regular ones, without sacrificing overall reliability. This requires quite a lot of behind the scenes magic to be built on top of core Kubernetes building blocks.

Satellite is a Golang library and RESTful API that determines a host’s cloud provider with a simple HTTP call. Behind the scenes, it uses file systems and provider metadata to properly identify cloud providers. When we started to work on Pipeline and the Banzai Cloud Pipeline Platform Operators, we soon realized how frequently we would need to find out which cloud provider the service was actually running on. Note that Pipeline supports 6 different cloud providers

The Banzai Cloud Cloudinfo service retrieves product and pricing information from cloud providers and exposes it through a RESTful API, and UI. Our Kubernetes based Pipeline platform and Telescopes recommendation engine make use of this information when they advise users on cluster layout and resourcing. Here’s a quick primer of how and why we utilize the Cloudinfo service: Pipeline platform users have the option of launching clusters or deploying applications based only on resource- and SLA-requirements (price, IO, memory, CPU, GPU, etc.

One of the main advantages of the Pipeline platform is that it allows users to use their infrastructure cost effectively; Telescopes helps with cluster and machine instance recommendations, Hollowtrees enables SLA-aware cost reduction using spot instances, and autoscalers allow for multi-dimensional autoscaling based on custom metrics. This post will highlight some new features of the Banzai Cloud Horizontal Pod Autoscaler Kubernetes Operator and the advanced automation supported by Pipeline - a new, forward-thinking way to operate Kubernetes clusters and autoscale deployments.
