Highlights

Support for Kubernetes

Kubernetes is the de-facto standard for orchestrating containerized applications. It is the go-to solution no matter where your infrastructure is running. This release adds support for Kubernetes resources. All standard Kubernetes resources are supported and fully covered.

UI to Configure Resoto

We now ship a user interface (UI) in Resoto Core, from which it is possible to configure Resoto.

If you are running Resoto locally via Docker, the UI is accessible via https://localhost:8900/ui:

Config UI

Complex Model Handling

Resoto had limited support to handle complex models. This release adds the ability to handle any deeply structured type while also introspecting them.

Resoto Shell now provides better, type-aware suggestions:

Complex Kind

Resoto Shell is also able to suggest deeply nested properties, since it knows the complete model structure:

Complex Kind

The kinds command can be used to lookup the model behind a nested property path:

Complex Kind

And last but not least, the UML model endpoint can generate diagrams with complex models.

Support for Graph Edges Between Clouds

Resoto uses collectors to retrieve data from a specific cloud provider. Those collectors are not only able to collect the resource data, but also define the relationships between the resources. Some relationships cannot be resolved inside the collector, since the relationship points to resources that are not part of this cloud.

Examples
  • A Kubernetes node is running on an AWS EC2 instance. The Kubernetes collector is unable to resolve the reference, since it points to a resource provided by AWS.
  • A load balancer in AWS that points to compute resources in Google Cloud. The AWS collector does not know anything about GCP.

Resoto now has support for creating edges that cannot be resolved during the phase of collecting the data but are resolved once all collectors have delivered their current snapshot. Going forward, we will continue extend our collectors to provide insights into relationships across cloud providers.

· 2 min read

We are proud to announce the general availability of Resoto 2.0.0.

Resoto provides a single data source and search engine to explore infrastructure in a cloud-agnostic way. Resoto aggregates and exports user-defined infrastructure metrics, and automates recurring tasks. That ensures a sound infrastructure and leaves developers and SREs more time and headspace to do productive work.

Resoto currently supports the following cloud providers:

Highlights

  • Flexible distributed system setup, which allows for small installations as well as a big enterprise scale infrastructure.
  • Graph-based data storage, that maintains all infrastructure resources, as well as all relationships between them.
  • Powerful search of your entire cloud metadata, no matter which service, account, or region.
  • Report infrastructure changes over time with out-of-the-box metrics, and aggregation of any data points for custom metrics.
  • Automate tedious tasks. Define rules for your infrastructure that are checked against existing resources, no matter how they were created. Rules are applied automatically whenever infrastructure changes.
  • Command line interface to interact with Resoto.
  • Ability to clean up your infrastructure in a user defined and reliable way.
  • Allows for manipulating tags.
  • API to interact with Resoto from your own code.

Please check out the Getting Started section of our documentation to give it a spin.

Deployment Options

There are currently 2 deployment options for Resoto: Docker and Kubernetes.
