Shipa’s Ketch – delivery of open source applications


SANTA CLARA, Calif., December 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Shipa, a cloud-native application-as-code platform that reduces complexity by enabling a AppOpps model development, today announced that Ketch, a powerful yet simple Kubernetes application framework, is a 2021 DevOps Dozen Community Awards finalist for Most Innovative Open Source DevOps Project.

The annual DevOps Dozen Community Awards presented by the Techstrong Group – the media company beyond and Container Journal, among other publications and events – recognize significant contributions that have positively impacted the DevOps community. The Most Innovative Open Source DevOps Project Award recognizes open source projects that promote innovation and increase efficiency, speed and quality, and in particular celebrates those that create a close and supportive open source community.

A fully open source project developed and supported by Shipa, Ketch provides a Kubernetes application framework that enables DevOps and developer teams to quickly and easily deploy and manage cloud native applications. Ketch eliminates the need to create Helm charts or manifests, allowing easy deployment and management of applications from a CI pipeline or a simple command line interface (CLI). In doing so, Ketch dramatically improves both the developer experience and the speed of application delivery, allowing developers to focus on code rather than YAML files. Ketch supports any on-premises or managed Kubernetes cluster. It also provides powerful multi-tenancy controls, introducing a framework concept that allows DevOps teams to isolate team workloads and set appropriate application limits. After deployment, Ketch provides a contextual view of the application to manage key features, such as scalability, throughout the application lifecycle.

“The enormous power of open source is fully demonstrated with Ketch, which has rapidly evolved into the robust solution it is today thanks to the interest and support of the community,” said Bruno. Andrade, CEO of Shipa. “We are honored by this recognition of Ketch’s innovation industry and excited that more DevOps teams and developers are discovering all that Ketch has to offer. “
