Avesha: Accelerating Application Deployment in Multi-Cluster Environments

Follow Avesh on :

Prasad Dorbala, Co-Founder and Cpo Enterprise application architectures span multiple Kubernetes (K8s) clusters today, located in different data centers and across distinct cloud providers and cloud provider regions. To accelerate application deployment in these hybrid and multi-cloud environments, enterprises must facilitate seamless communication between the ever-growing K8s clusters by efficiently streamlining and managing the numerous service accounts and access levels. However, enterprises increasingly face many challenges on that front, including IP address conflicts, namespace proliferation, and lack of visibility.

Avesha can significantly help enterprises by enabling them to effortlessly streamline their cluster management and latency monitoring in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Avesha’s cloud-native platform KubeSlice brings the application, network, resource, and K8s services together in a single framework to accelerate application deployments in multi-cluster, multi-tenant environments.

KubeSlice does this by enabling the creation of multiple logical slices called KubeSlices. These KubeSlices group K8s application pods from different clusters, regardless of their physical location, based on one or more organizing principles, including critical services, security, governance, and deployment velocity. The platform, therefore, can implement a horizontal overlay network of KubeSlices for inter-cluster communication. The network connects all application endpoints and facilitates micro-segmentation, service discovery, and zero-trust security between clusters, accelerating application deployment.
“By allowing pods and services to communicate seamlessly across clusters, clouds, edges, and data centers, KubeSlice helps enterprises solve critical issues, such as K8s networking and multi-tenancy,” states Raj Nair, co-founder and CEO of Avesha

Irrespective of where the enterprises are in their microservice architecture migration, Avesha has a product portfolio that caters to them. The company’s VMKubed, for instance, can be integrated into KubeSlice to orchestrate virtual machines (VM) with K8s, letting enterprises run their VM workloads on K8s in the cloud or data centers. VMKubed can essentially act as a single management and observability platform for VMs and K8s, reducing the cost of maintaining multiple platforms for traditional and modernized workloads. “This pluggable architecture simplifies the operations for an enterprise while simultaneously bringing in all the autoscaling capabilities of K8s,” says Prasad Dorbala, co-founder and CPO at Avesha.

An equally remarkable product that elevates the standard of enterprise application delivery is Avesha’s KubeSlice Manager. Olyvia Rakshit, VP of product management and marketing, Avesha, notes that KubeSlice Manager acts as a “single pane of glass” for enterprises to do root cause analysis in their multi-cluster environments.
KubeSlice Manager puts forth a range of features to view and segment the entire distributed infrastructure and gives a comprehensive idea of what’s going on from a service-to-service communication perspective.

While boasting such a range of competencies, Avesha’s products are built for brownfield scenarios and can be effortlessly integrated into an existing multi-cluster environment. KubeSlice works with prevailing K8s deployments, creating no friction with an enterprise’s existing infrastructure, and doesn’t require significant changes to the codes—with a whole set of Helm Charts and execution of a few single commands, KubeSlice is up and running.

Such capabilities have enabled Avesha to establish an extensive client base today, including many leading telcos, managed service providers, other enterprises, and channel partners. How a major service provider in the 5G space recently leveraged Avesha’s framework is a perfect testament to its efficiency. KubeSlice efficiently connected all the cloud and on-prem workloads for the client, and aided the company in organizing the control traffic by prioritizing their multiple slices. Before KubeSlice, the multi-cluster environment created a lot of friction for the client, leading to operational complexity and overhead. By implementing virtual clusters and alleviating the concerns from a security standpoint, KubeSlice turned the situation on its head and attained the velocity the client wanted from their deployments.

Placing customer requirements at the front and center of its expansion strategies, Avesha has become the go-to service provider in the domain today. On that front, the company has a talented pool of experts with decades of expertise in the networking space to cater to the ever-evolving customer requirements. By adopting new approaches, such as open-sourcing the software, the team behind Avesha is propelling the company to further extend its footprint in the sector.
