Nethopper Kubernetes Application Operations (KAOps)

Nethopper’s KAOps is a software stack that runs on top of Kubernetes infrastructure to help deliver, upgrade, monitor, secure, and connect applications. KAOps' innovative approach seamlessly integrates best-of-breed open-source tools, like Kubernetes packagers, observability, continuous delivery, security (service mesh), and multi-cloud networking.

With Nethopper, enterprise application operations teams can focus on business outcomes instead of investing time and money reinventing and maintaining their own stacks. Running in the cloud, KAOps platform as a service is ready for consumption by application operations (DevOps, SREs) teams everywhere. With its recent launch, Nethopper announced enterprise support for industry’s first hosted ArgoCD GitOps integrated with Multi-Cloud Application Networking, which significantly improves the security and simplicity of open-source ArgoCD.

“Nethopper’s KAOps simplifies management and operations of modern cloud-native Kubernetes-based applications,” said Chris Munford, founder and CEO of Nethopper. “It’s a powerful combination: HPE GreenLake and HPE Ezmeral provide the Kubernetes infrastructure layer, while Nethopper’s KAOps provides the application layer tools,” he said. “We’re excited to partner with HPE to simplify, automate, and secure end-users’ Kubernetes applications through a single browser-based dashboard. It’s a one-stop-shop for DevOps teams building a broad range of applications, including AI/ML and data analytics in private, hybrid or edge cloud,” he said.
