Polaris Snapshot

Validate and enforce Kubernetes stability

Keeping your Kubernetes Clusters Healthy

Something as simple as forgetting to configure resource requests or limits could break autoscaling or even cause your workloads to run out of resources. Small configuration issues like this have led to production outages in the past — now they’re entirely preventable with Polaris.

Polaris helps you avoid configuration issues that affect the stability, reliability, scalability, and security of your applications. It provides a simple way to identify shortcomings in your deployment configuration and prevent future issues. 

We developed Polaris with three key components:

  1. A dashboard that provides an overview of how well current deployments are configured within a cluster.
  2. An experimental validating webhook that can prevent any future deployments that do not live up to a configured standard.
  3. The ability to audit local YAML files so that CI/CD pipelines will fail if Polaris detects any error-level issues.

Now you can sleep soundly knowing that your applications are deployed with a set of well tested standards. Learn more by visiting Polaris on Github. 

"Using Fairwinds Polaris to scan Kubernetes workloads allows teams to spot potential issues early in the application lifecycle and stay aligned with best practices. Result categorization by Kubernetes namespace in Polaris helps application and infrastructure teams to address configuration issues in parallel, resulting in faster time to production."
