Kybio from WorldCast Connect is now based on Kubernetes. The company says the change will assure high reliability for its cloud deployments.
Last year, a new “software as a service” licensing option was made available to users of Kybio network monitoring. WorldCast Connect now says it has created a major update to that SaaS platform.
“After a rigorous benchmark of technologies to best meet Connect’s need for more scale and performance, its SaaS version of Kybio is now powered by Kubernetes, the standard container orchestrator for cloud,” the company stated in the announcement.
Kubernetes is an open-source platform for managing containerized workloads and services.
WorldCast quoted Product Manager Julien Libeau saying, “Using Kubernetes technology radically changes the way our team and engineers work on the SaaS offer. It also adds significant added-value for our customers in media and broadcast, especially by speeding up the time of deployment. They can literally have Kybio up and running in less than 10 minutes.”
He said the cloud-hosting solution lets Kybio scale more easily because the architecture provides the correct amount of compute power needed for each customer, depending on usage and license size.
It said its in-house local software agent, EdgeBots, played a role in the deployment of this cloud infrastructure. “They bring the ability to combine on-premise remote monitoring with a full cloud environment,” the company said. “The Kybio cloud offer is intended to be used in a decentralized network. By connecting EdgeBots with their remote network, users are quickly and securely connected to Kybio SaaS, offering high scalability for large network infrastructures.”
The company is offering users have the opportunity to test Kybio SaaS with a free trial license for one month.
