Hashtag (#) Kubernetes on Twitter, Instagram, etc., is always buzzing when DevOps receive a new gift. Give a cloud engineer gold, he might say no, but mentioning plans to improve Kubernetes and any of the many tools that revolve around cloud computing, and there will be not one but many smiles. The KubeSphere community has a new hot topic in the operating system founded on Kubernetes, Kubesphere. KubeSphere v3.1.0, as it should be, is better than the previous releases and can be used by DevOps to run Kubernetes workloads wherever and whenever they want. Now KubeSphere’s international numbers of 100,000 across 90 countries till present time are going over the roof shortly.

KubeSphere v3.1 enhances Kubernetes operations, supporting the deployment of workloads at the edge and not just across clouds. It boasts a profound edge node management, integrating with KubeEdge, which adds edge nodes; it does all this with an automated user interface that eliminates complex configurations. On the activation of KubeEdge, attaching edge nodes to Kubernetes clusters requires only a single command.  No extensions are needed for workload deployment, viewing logging, and data monitoring; these can be done on the KubeSphere console directly.

Another significant enhancement in the update is the metering and billing feature. Designed to record usage in clusters and workspaces, users can track infrastructure costs.

Organizations that concurrently work in diverse clusters are going to like this one. KubeSphere 3.1.0 offers lightweight multi-cloud and multi-cluster management.

KubeSphere 3.1.0 says no to multi-platform monitoring. Enterprises have pinned this as a major factor in their adoption of a Kubernetes platform. KubeSphere allows users to work on their resources no matter the deployment location. In v3.1, KubeSphere adopts Thanos Ruler and inbuilt Prometheus rules. Also, KubeSphere can receive all methods of notifications.

KubeSphere has increased the level of security, lacing it with authentication and multi-tenancy. In a multi-tenant Kubernetes system for logic separation, a unified and comprehensive account authorization and authentication system is a crucial building piece. Users can use workspaces in KubeSphere v3.1.0 to manage and group projects and define departments inside workspaces. Metering and billing features are not necessarily needed to manage resource usage at the workspace level; users can define workspace quotas in this demand.

For authentication, IdentityProvider settings are in place for the integration of guests and other party authentications. KubeSphere v3.1 now has room for compatibility with popular authentication protocols like Central Authentication Service (CAS), OAuth2, and OpenID Connect (OIDC).

In terms of deprecation or removals, the alerting system built on MySQL, Redis, etcd, and a few other components has been replaced by the new alerting and notification functions. Also, with WebSocket API, the container terminal has been changed.
