New features and capabilities

DKP Major Version Upgrade

Konvoy and Kommander 2.1 represent a major version upgrade that moves forward DKP architecture to give you access to D2iQ’s next generation centralized Kubernetes and smart cloud native applications. It incorporates ClusterAPI as a major re-architecture in its management of production Kubernetes clusters. ClusterAPI, or CAPI, enables declarative creation, configuration, and management of clusters. Declarative mode is a Kubernetes best practice that simplifies lifecycle tasks, making them more consistent and more repeatable. 2.1 enhances your existing clusters to use a new architecture.

Easier Air-gapped deployments

Konvoy 2.1 comes with an easier way to deploy in an air-gapped environment. Rather than one large package that includes the requirements for all air-gapped environments, D2iQ now provides air-gapped bundles for individual needs.

Other Feature Additions

  • Added the ability to provision a cluster using an advanced YAML editor.
