AK8s – Apiculus Kubernetes

Kubernetes has become the gold standard for automating containerized application deployment, management, and scaling. Apiculus’ Kubernetes Service (AK8s) empowers domestic and regional IaaS providers to offer a white-labeled Kubernetes service to their customers.

With a user-friendly interface catering to both power users and beginners, AK8s utilizes the native CKS offered by CloudStack, enabling seamless single-click deployment of a wide range of cloud-native applications through the app catalogue.

Benefits of Apiculus Kubernetes (AK8s)

  • AK8s allows Apiculus cloud users to seamlessly deploy Kubernetes clusters for running containerised cloud-native workloads
  • Further, use AK8s to scale your clusters, define networking policies and deploy multi-master clusters seamlessly using the AK8s console.
  • Additionally, AK8s provides improved support for CSI and CNI plugins and cluster dashboards.

AS3 – Apiculus Object Storage

Object Storage helps the way data is managed by treating it as discrete objects, eliminating the need for traditional file systems and hierarchies. Unlike traditional file-based storage systems, where data is divided into files and folders, object storage systems store entire objects along with their metadata in a single large repository.

This unified approach simplifies data access and retrieval, as each object is assigned a unique ID, enabling quick and efficient data retrieval without hierarchical constraints. Here’s how AS3 can help you:

Benefits of Apiculus Object Storage (AS3)

  • White-Label Object Storage Service: AS3 enables domestic and regional IaaS providers to offer a white-labeled S3-compatible Object Storage service to their customers.
  • Local Market Competitiveness: Providers can deliver an S3-compatible Object Storage service parallel to industry giants like Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Azure Blob Storage, and Digital Ocean Spaces in their local market.
  • High Availability: AS3 allows the management and delivery of the S3 service from multiple Availability Zones, ensuring robustness and reliability. This opens up various monetization opportunities.
  • Flexible Monetization Models: The service comes with multiple distribution, pricing, and cataloguing opportunities, offering providers the flexibility to tailor their offerings to different customer segments.
  • Integration with Cloud Ecosystems: AS3 can be extended to offer virtualized (cloud-enabled, VM-based) and containerized (cloud-native, Kubernetes-based) Compute, Networking, and Storage services, providing a comprehensive cloud ecosystem.
  • Seamless S3 API Compatibility: AS3 offers seamless compatibility with the S3 API, making it easy for users to integrate their applications without extensive modifications.
  • Effortless Bucket Management: Users can easily create, edit, and delete buckets using AS3, facilitating an organized and efficient approach to managing data.
  • User-Friendly Interface: Apiculus provides a user-friendly interface that empowers users to access, manage, and configure their storage environment with ease.

Apiculus Object Storage Service brings an unparalleled level of efficiency and control to businesses grappling with exponential data growth. Service providers can offer (and monetise) this service as part of their Storage portfolio.

They can provide this service for the end users so that they can organise and store files and objects. The service management option will also be available on the Apiculus.

IaC – Infrastructure as Code

Apiculus is offering direct integration with CloudStack’s REST APIs, paving the way for Infrastructure as Code (IaC). Leveraging Terraform providers and automation tools, businesses can now execute API-based provisioning and management for key IaaS components, including VMs, VPCs, disks, and networks.

This event-based architecture simplifies resource creation and management, allowing users to interact directly with the Gateway URL, streamline resource creation, and automate subsequent steps such as ACS resource creation, subscription, host setup in Zabbix, and user notifications.

To facilitate seamless implementation, Apiculus provides a user-friendly Swagger UI, which lists all APIs and allows users to input parameters and submit requests effortlessly.

Benefits of Apiculus Infrastructure as Code (IaC)

  • Faster Speed and Consistency: The goal of IaC is to make things faster by eliminating manual processes and eliminating the slack in the process. A code-based approach makes it easier to get more done in less time. No need to wait on the IT Admin to manually complete the task at hand before he can get to the next one. This also means that you can iterate quickly and more often.

    Consistency is another vital benefit of IaC. You do not need to worry about tasks not being completed because it is a weekend or because your admin is focused on something else. Also, you can implement changes globally while keeping the same version of the software, etc.
  • Efficient Software Development Lifecycle: IaC shifts the power into the developer’s hands. As the infrastructure provisioning becomes more reliable and consistent, developers can start focusing on application development more. Also, they can script once and use that code multiple times, thus, saving time and effort while keeping complete control.
  • Reduced Management Overhead: In a data center world there was a need to have admins to govern and manage storage, networking, compute and other layers of hardware and middleware. IaC eliminates a need for these multiple roles. Those admins can now focus on identifying the next exciting technology they want to implement.

Conclusion

Apiculus continues to be at the forefront of innovation in the cloud infrastructure management space, introducing services that cater to the evolving needs of businesses. With offerings such as Kubernetes as a Service and Object Storage, Apiculus empowers businesses to thrive in a dynamic and competitive environment.

Additionally, the latest Infrastructure as Code (IaC) service further streamlines resource management, providing businesses with automation and flexibility like never before.

As businesses embrace the power of these new services, Apiculus remains committed to driving digital transformation and helping businesses realize their full potential in the cloud era. Experience the future of cloud infrastructure management with Apiculus today!
