Featuring KAOPS to simplify DevOps and Platform Engineering, automate Kubernetes application operations across clouds/clusters, boost operational efficiency, save cost, and speed time-to market.

BOSTON, MA, USA, October 25, 2023 / --, the pioneer of Kubernetes Application Operations Platform as a Service (KAOPS), announced it will sponsor and exhibit as a startup at KubeCon CloudNativeCon NA 2023.

The company will showcase KAOPS with its unified dashboard and built-in integrations for CI/CD for containers, Continuous Delivery, IaC, secrets/security configuration, and advanced observability with GPT-based AIOps. Nethopper KAOPS helps DevOps and platform engineering teams to reduce technical complexity and move faster, more efficiently.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s flagship conference gathers adopters and technologists from leading open source and cloud native communities in Chicago, Illinois from November 6-9, 2023.

Meet & greet the Nethopper team, including its founder/CEO, Chris Munford at booth #L30.

As an exhibitor (booth #L30), Nethopper will share information about KAOPS and its GPT-based AIOps capability, which provides workload health analysis, fast triage, and AI analysis. To meet & greet the Nethopper team, including its founder/CEO, Chris Munford, visit booth #L30.


Nethopper KAOPS is a cloud-native, GitOps-centric DevOps platform, delivered as a service. Its neutral approach to Kubernetes and cloud allows KAOPS to be used with any Kubernetes distribution in any private or public cloud. With KAOPS, enterprises and Managed Services Providers (MSPs) can cut down time-to-market by over 2 years – all the while minimizing the cognitive load, toil and complexity for DevOps/platform teams.

With a centralized, single-UI, Nethopper KAOPS enables integrated:

- GitOps-centric capabilities for infrastructure automation

- CI/CD pipeline for containers

- Continuous Delivery (CD)

- Multi-cluster/cloud application networking

- Secrets/security management

- Observability with proactive alerts and GPT-based AIOps

- Documented best-practices.

Blue Mantis announced its dedicated GitOps technology practice to help clients transform their software development lifecycle (SDLC).

Also, the company introduced GitMantis, a new managed GitOps platform delivered as a service that expedites the delivery of modern software code to multi-cloud environments using Kubernetes containers.

The Nethopper team is excited about this announcement and our CEO said it best:

“As Kubernetes adoption increases, so does the challenge of efficiently managing containerized applications at scale,” said Chris Munford, CEO of Nethopper. “By embracing GitOps, companies can automate deployment and enhance the overall reliability and resilience of their Kubernetes workloads. Nethopper’s extensible platform enables Blue Mantis to help clients implement customized DevOps approaches, migrate their applications to the cloud, and increase productivity with Kubernetes.”

So, when it comes to modern applications and Kubernetes innovation, Nethopper KAOPS is Blue Mantis’ force multiplier to help reduce the amount of effort required to do cloud-native DevOps right at scale, with security, resilience, and speed.

Together with Blue Mantis, we're not just offering a platform; we're offering enterprises a partner in innovation, making modern applications in the cloud simpler, more fluid, and downright exciting.

According to Jay Pasteris, CIO and CISO at Blue Mantis, the GitOps practice launch is driven by strong demand from organizations seeking to bridge the gap between development and operations by leveraging Git as a single source of truth for the entire software delivery processes.

"The world runs on software, and Blue Mantis believes that GitOps is not only a game-changer for developers but absolutely critical for a holistic security strategy. Through our GitOps practice and new GitMantis solution, we’re actively delivering the knowledge and advanced tools our clients need to succeed in their digital transformation journey," said Jay.

Now, enterprises can elevate their SDLC with GitOps best-practices and embrace cloud-native and Kubernetes innovation with confidence.

So, what are you waiting for? Join us on this journey of transformation and innovation with Blue Mantis’ dedicated GitOps technology practice, and its managed GitMantis platform (powered by Nethopper KAOPS and CloudTruth). Together, we'll redefine what's possible in the world of IT and hybrid/multi-cloud environments using Kubernetes containers.

  • Writer's pictureNethopper KAOPS

Nethopper KAOPS is a simple, cost-effective GitOps-based platform-engineering approach delivered as a service. It helps make your OpenShift work faster and better for you, today.

Red Hat OpenShift

Red Hat® OpenShift® is an enterprise Kubernetes container platform, built primarily to provide Kubernetes infrastructure, and to facilitate cluster creation. As a popular software, Red Hat OpenShift can be installed on private data centers, public-cloud, and Virtual Machines (VMs).

While OpenShift is great for creating Kubernetes infrastructure, users still need to deploy, and run their applications. That is, they still need operational tools for OpenShift to address observability, security for secrets configuration/management, CI/CD workflows for containers, etc.

As a vendor, Red Hat will point to the Advanced Cluster Management (ACM) as the solution path for OpenShift operations. However, for many users, ACM is an expensive add-on to OpenShift with a much-to-be-desired product roadmap.

If you want to use a cost-effective and simple UI with integrated cloud-native tools to manage and operate your applications on OpenShift + move your workloads to the cloud + support hybrid/multi-cloud application development and deployment with ease, then it's time to look for a more agile and nimble alternative to ACM. is a leading vendor shining in its ability to help internal enterprise DevOps and platform teams to:

  1. Have an alternative to expensive, partial 'ops' platform add-ons like ACM

  2. Simplify OpenShift/Kubernetes operations and management without a steep learning curve

  3. Leverage existing DevOps skills, including junior DevOps teams

  4. Prevent cloud service provider vendor lock-in, with a cloud-neutral approach

  5. Support all Kubernetes flavors, including OpenShift, with a Kubernetes neutral-approach

  6. Eliminate the risk of tool sprawl, cognitive overload, and lack of DevOps tool standardization

  7. Use it as an operator to OpenShift and/or other Kubernetes clusters

ACM versus KAOPS

Now, OpenShift users have options:

  1. OpenShift Advanced Cluster Management (ACM), a Red Hat offering that is intended to control Kubernetes clusters and application lifecycle.

  2. Nethopper KAOPS for OpenShift, a comprehensive GitOps-based cloud-native DevOps platform for Kubernetes application operations, delivered as a service, and available now.

In the graphic above, we compare key capabilities for both Red Hat ACM and Nethopper KAOPS (Layer-3) solutions for Red Hat OpenShift (Layer-2).

In Summary

While Red Hat focus on enhancing your core OpenShift (Layer-2), you can get the simplified operational agility (Layer-3) you need. With Nethopper KAOPS, you can:

  • Make your OpenShift work better and faster for you

  • Decrease your time to market with built-in observability, secrets/security, and GitOps

  • Up-skill your DevOps team with documented best-practices

  • Leverage your current DevOps skills, with no new hiring required.
