I hope everyone is excited for a great week at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2020. We hope you’ll stop by our virtual booth and say hello! 

Today is an exciting day for the Carbon Relay team. This morning we announced a free and self-service edition of Red Sky Ops, our AIOps platform for automatically configuring and continuously optimizing containerized applications. 

It’s no secret that Kubernetes has quickly become the container orchestration platform of choice for many organizations. But configuration complexity, manual tuning and excessive alerting impede Kubernetes initiatives as DevOps teams struggle to get off the ground and ensure reliable and optimal application performance without over-provisioning resources. That’s why we launched Red Sky Ops in July 2019, the first AIOps solution for application management in Kubernetes environments that enhances application performance, reduces infrastructure costs, and eliminates the need for manual optimization by DevOps, networking, and IT professionals. 

Our mission with Red Sky Ops is to help organizations unlock the true power and versatility of Kubernetes, and today’s launch accelerates this opportunity. A free and self-service version of Red Sky Ops makes the promise of Kubernetes far more accessible, helps more organizations automate optimized application performance, and as a result, frees up more technologists for more strategic initiatives.

Red Sky Ops uses machine learning to study, replicate and stress-test application environments, and then proactively learn and deploy optimal configurations, schedules, and resource allocations. It works with the Kubernetes scheduler to take into account service requirements, policy constraints around hardware or software use, workload-specific issues and deadlines—all with minimal engineering involvement. 

With our Red Sky Ops self-service edition, we’re putting the power of our solution in your hands, allowing you to optimize your first application 100% free-for-life. This allows your organization to: 

  • Break Through the Kubernetes Complexity Barrier: Until now, managing and maintaining consistent and high application performance and reliability in Kubernetes environments has proven to be complicated and difficult. First-generation AIOps management tools are too imprecise and not automated, often missing opportunities for big performance gains and generating too many alerts. Red Sky Ops provides an intelligent and automated way to address Kubernetes and container complexity, boosting application performance, reducing costs, and stopping alert floods for DevOps teams. 

  • Cut Costs and increase uptime with Automated Optimization: Red Sky Ops uses machine learning to drive major application performance gains and cost reductions in complex Kubernetes application environments. It proactively assesses all relevant factors to determine the best set of deployment choices and then automatically implement them, and recalculates on-the-fly to maintain top performance as conditions change. The result is the highest and most reliable performance possible at the lowest costs, all without the constant inundation of unnecessary alerts. 

Start optimizing today by signing up for our free edition of Red Sky Ops. Your team immediately gains access to: 

  • 1 optimized application in production
  • Community support
  • Up to 2 metrics per Experiment
  • Up to 5 parameters per Experiment
  • 3 Experiments per month

The journey to an effective cloud-native strategy can be long and winding, but we’re here to help you each step of the way. Click here to learn more about how to get started with Red Sky Ops, and we look forward to seeing everyone this week at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe.
