Boston, MA – June 3, 2020 – Fairwinds, the Kubernetes enablement company, today announced that Fairwinds Insights has been recognized as the Most Innovative Container Solution by the 2020 Tech Ascension Awards.
Fairwinds Insights is a SaaS-based configuration validation platform that enables engineering and DevOps teams to run applications on Kubernetes securely, efficiently, and reliably. It combines trusted open source tools, toolchain integrations, and Fairwinds’ Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) expertise based on hundreds of successful Kubernetes deployments. While traditional infrastructure monitoring tools only react to system problems, Fairwinds Insights provides continuous visibility, prioritized recommendations, and collaboration tools. It enables teams to apply Kubernetes configuration best practices while moving applications from development to production. In addition to revealing configuration problems, Fairwinds Insights also offers clear remediation steps and code examples so engineering teams can improve upon what they’ve built.
The Tech Ascension Awards recognized the very best innovations in b2c and b2b technology. In the second year of the Tech Ascension Awards, only the most cutting-edge companies stood above the rest. The Tech Ascension awards judged applicants based on technology innovation and uniqueness, market research (analyst reports, media coverage, customer case studies), hard performance stats, and competitive differentiators.

“We are extremely pleased to win the Tech Ascension Most Innovative Container Solution for our Fairwinds Insights software offering,” said Joe Pelletier, VP of Product at Fairwinds. “Organizations are choosing containers and Kubernetes to package and deploy new applications and services more quickly, but this can introduce misconfigurations that impact both security and workload efficiency. Our goal with Fairwinds Insights was to help engineering and DevOps teams save time by proactively monitoring Kubernetes-based applications and suggesting improvements so problems are avoided before they arise. We wanted to make Kubernetes more secure, efficient, and reliable, and winning the Tech Ascension Award is validation that we have hit the mark.”
