D2iQ, GitLab D2iQ Partner
May 23, 2022
this partnership, users can now run the GitLab Kubernetes Operator on the D2iQ
Kubernetes Platform (DKP), providing consistent upgrades, deployment and
security policies for infrastructures and applications. Enterprise organizations
can also safely deploy a project to DKP from a continuous integration/continuous
delivery (CI/CD) pipeline with a cluster attached to GitLab, providing enhanced
flexibility and agility.
"The partnership between GitLab and D2iQ allows joint customers to build, test,
deploy, and run modern apps at scale," said Jaimie Kander, Sr. Manager of
Alliance Partner Programs and Go To Market at GitLab. "GitLab's single
application for the DevOps lifecycle encourages continuous testing and allows
increased visibility, which makes it easier to securely adopt the next
generation of cloud-native technologies."
to the findings in the "Kubernetes in the Enterprise Annual Report," a lack of
IT resources was the most prevalent challenge in growing Kubernetes adoption
across the enterprise. Full integration of GitOps workflows along with
declarative APIs enables easier management of Kubernetes clusters in production
environments. DKP reduces the operational loads on DevOps teams so they can
focus on innovation, not just supporting infrastructure. In addition, DKP's
user-friendly control plane provides a variety of development approaches using
GitLab, including ongoing delivery and deployment with FluxCD, which is designed
for Kubernetes and supports multi-cluster and multi-tenant use cases.
"Organizations of all sizes are under more pressure than ever to drive
innovation, performance, and speed," said Tobi Knaup, CEO of D2iQ. "Combining
the leading Kubernetes and DevOps platforms enables organizations to achieve a
new level of business performance. D2iQ and GitLab are delivering a
best-in-class solution and an unmatched user experience to enable our customers
to achieve success in Day 2 operations."
