Devtron is an open source software delivery workflow for Kubernetes written in go.

Why Devtron?

It is designed as a self-serve platform for operationalizing and maintaining applications (AppOps) on Kubernetes in a developer friendly way.

Some of the benefits provided by devtron are:

Zero code software delivery workflow

  • Workflow which understands the domain of Kubernetes, testing, CD, SecOps so that you dont have to write scripts
  • Reusable and composable components so that workflows are easy to contruct and reason through

Multi cloud deployment

  • Deploy to multiple Kubernetes clusters on multiple cloud/on-prem from one Devtron setup.
  • Works for all cloud providers and on-premise Kubernetes clusters.

Easy DevSecOps integration

  • Multi level security policy at global, cluster, environment and application for efficient hierarchical policy management
  • Behavior driven security policy
  • Define policies and exception for kubernetes resources
  • Define policies for events for faster resolution

Application debugging dashboard

  • One place for all historical kubernetes events
  • Access all manifests securely for eg secret obfuscation
  • Application metrics for cpu, ram, http status code and latency with comparison between new and old
  • Advanced logging with grep and json search
  • Intelligent correlation between events, logs for faster triangulation of issue
  • Auto issue identification

Enterprise Grade security and compliances

  • Fine grained access control; control who can edit configuration and who can deploy.
  • Audit log to know who did what and when
  • History of all CI and CD events
  • Kubernetes events impacting application
  • Relevant cloud events and their impact on applications
  • Advanced workflow policies like blackout window, branch environment relationship to secure build and deployment pipelines

GitOps aware

  • GitOps exposed through API and UI so that you dont have to interact with git CLI
  • GitOps backed by postgres for easier analysis
  • Enforce finer access control than git

Operational insights

  • Deployment metrics to measure success of agile process. It captures mttr, change failure rate, deployment frequency, deployment size out of the box.
  • Audit log to understand the failure causes
  • Monitor changes across deployments and revert easily

Compatibility notes

  • It uses modified version of argo rollout.
  • application metrics only works for k8s 1.16+
