Replicated Studio: Develop faster, release more often.
We are excited to announce Replicated Studio, an isolated development environment which gives you and your team a faster way to build and iterate on your application releases. Over the last few months, we’ve been working to improve the development workflow.
Replicated recently introduced a way to track the usage & updates for each license you issue to a customer (available for customer running Replicated versions 1.2.48 & higher). This is helpful when you’re supporting a customer or what to just have some insight as to how they’re using the license you provided to them.
Replicated Recent Release Highlights: August 2021
Summer may be winding down, but the Replicated Product & Engineering teams are moving full steam ahead on our product roadmap! It’s time for another fresh batch of exciting capabilities newly available in KOTS (Kubernetes Off-The-Shelf), our embedded K8s installer (kURL), and Vendor Web.
Replicated vendor portal updates
We’re excited to announce the release of a newly redesigned frontend for vendor.replicated.com. Over the past couple of years, we’ve been constantly updating the default, vanilla, bootstrap-powered version, but we decided to shake things up a bit and redesign it.
Management console settings screen
The installable components of Replicated that your customers interact with are now more configurable with the introduction of the Management Console Settings screen. The layout is similar to the customizable configuration screen that allows each of your customers to configure their instance of your application.
On-prem instance configuration page
One of the core features of Replicated is the ability for any application to present users with a configuration/settings page on which they can input values to be used to customize their instance. Generally, these settings include things like hostname, SSL certs, SMTP settings.
Air Gap On-Prem Use Cases for the Security-Conscious Enterprise
By Jason English (@bluefug) – Intellyx | Part 2 of the Intellyx On-Prem Innovation Series When I think of the most mission-critical on-premises secure installation scenario of all time, my mind immediately wanders to silos. Missile silos, to be exact.
Container Image Registries – Huh?!
Greetings and welcome back to our series on getting familiar with the Replicated Vendor Portal. In this episode, we’re going to talk a bit about the different types of container image registries available to use with Replicated KOTS – or any other Kubernetes clusters.
Replicated with less privileges
When deploying a secure system it is important to ensure that each component only has access to the lowest level of privileges needed to perform its task. This concept should apply to any access in a system, including the user account and file system permissions need to spawn processes successfully.
By default each instance is now verified against the standard Replicated Preflight Checks during the installation and update processes. The goal of this feature is to surface potential issues to the end user before they become support tickets for Replicated application vendors.
1-click update experience
Replicated makes the process of providing your on-prem customers with your regular application updates as simple as possible. Whenever a release is promoted to a channel where existing customers are licensed, your customers will be able to update their instance with 1-click.
