The solution is suitable for small, medium, and large-sized companies.

Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes Features

Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

  • Vulnerability management: With the Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes solution, you gain full visibility into your entire cloud-native landscape. The solution makes it possible for your organization to identify and remediate vulnerabilities in Kubernetes configurations and container images, as well as running applications. It also enables you to provide developers with clear and prioritized guidance on fixable vulnerabilities.
  • Configuration management: The solution makes configuration management easy. To identify missed best practices, you can understand how images, containers, and deployments are configured prior to running. It also allows you to leverage Kubernetes-native capabilities - like admission controllers - to prevent misconfigured workloads from deploying or running.
  • Compliance: Using Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes helps you manage compliance with standard-specific checks across CIS Benchmarks, NIST, PCI, and HIPAA, with more than 300 controls and continuous compliance assessments and one-click audit reporting.
  • Network segmentation: The solution enables you to enforce network policies by using the native capabilities in Kubernetes. You can simulate new policies, visualize existing ones, generate updated YAML files, and apply them directly to Kubernetes.
  • Multifactor risk profiling: With Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes, you can use risk rankings by combining vulnerability (CVE) details with rich Kubernetes context and artifact data. This allows you to assess and prioritize risk across your entire environment. In turn, you can accelerate remediation times and productivity.
  • Threat detection and incident response: By combining custom policies, process allow lists, application and network baselines, and behavioral modeling to identify anomalous behavior, the solution enables you to protect your applications at runtime. You can then leverage Kubernetes-native enforcement capabilities to respond.

Allows teams to create their own virtual spaces and share resources
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature is the ability to share resources."
  • "They're trying to convert it to the platform as a source. They are moving in the direction of Cloud Foundry so it can be easier for a developer to deploy it."

What is our primary use case?

For the first step, you create the cluster the same way you specify the hardware underneath. On the cluster, you starting creating projects, which are like virtual spaces. There is a physical cluster where you install Kubernetes. You install it on the data center. Each team creates their own virtual space.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to share resources.

What needs improvement?

They're trying to convert it to the platform as a source. They are moving in the direction of Cloud Foundry so it can be easier for a developer to deploy it.

They're trying to create it so that it's easier, like on Cloud Foundry. If you specify some service, you just go to the marketplace on Cloud Foundry and find something you want to create, like a database of a certain size and CPU, and it's automatically created for you. In your application, you just create a manifest file where you specify the name of this source. If you automatically bind the application to that source, that would be like a database. There is no need to manually produce a database.

By binding your application to the source, Cloud Foundry automatically creates a connection for you for your source code. So you basically don't use any ODBC or JDBC objects for your source code.

How was the initial setup?

You have to create multiple customer resource files, where you specify the port. Red Hat goes on top of Kubernetes.

The first time you deploy the port, it means you are telling Kubernetes that you want to stream some virtual machine called a port. Then, you specify another consideration file where you describe what image you want to deploy on that port as a container.

There are many steps, and you can run multiple containers on this port.

You can create another port which works like a load balance set. You can scale your ports for multiple ports and get multiple instances of your application for the load balance.
