    One to watch, for sure. Kubernetes-native services are definitely attractive for the reasons they cite.

    Looks like kubernetes lens

    We use kunernetes lens and rancher to manage all our k8s clusters and we run about 20.. never had issues over ECS, AKS, minkube and bare bones, if the admin api is available you can get rancher and lens to manage it..

    The big cloud guys are ahead because they have made it easy by making the install easy and making each version of Kubernetes easy to install, on bare bones a script that worked to install v1.1.7 probably won’t work to install v1.1.9 because everything has changed..

    If you have more than one k8s cluster download the open source lens it changed our way of working

    Otomi is not providing a layer of abstraction hiding internal

    Otomi is not providing a layer of abstraction hiding internals, but instead it uses and exposes familiar tools and its power lies in the glue it provides to power them. At any point in the development lifecycle it is actually rather easy and comfortable to get “under the hood”. That is by design. Of course one would still need to understand these tools to really extend and contribute to the platform, but that learning curve is less steep in comparison to learning yet another proprietary catch-all tool chain.
