What is “Instant Platform Engineering” and why is it important?
-Platform Engineering is a red-hot topic being touted as a remedy for DevOps difficulty and dysfunctionality, with pundits pronouncing DevOps “dead.”
-Platform engineering provides an internal development platform (IDP) that provides a “golden path” for developers.
-Platform engineering can solve the problem of multi-cloud and multi-cluster management by providing a centralized plane for unified fleet management across all environments.
-Platform engineering can simplify security by building strong security into the platform, making DevSecOps, zero trust, and air-gapped security easier to achieve.
-Platform engineering can provide a Kubernetes platform that is ideal for running AI workloads and edge/IoT deployments.
-A Kubernetes platform based on pure CNCF-conformant Kubernetes is important to avoid security, upgradeability, maintenance, and other problems, and to enable portability and the ability to easily accommodate open source community innovation.
-Instant Platform Engineering provides a production-ready, fully automated Kubernetes platform with top-to-bottom declarative APIs and GitOps workflow, ready to go out of the box.
-This relieves platform teams of the burden of engineering a Kubernetes platform by providing a feature-complete world-class Kubernetes platform, ready to deploy in minutes, enabling them to focus on higher-value work.
