Welcome to the release of Kubernetes Fury Distribution (KFD) versions
As a part of Team SIGHUP's continuous efforts to serve the community with a production-ready full-fledged Kubernetes Distribution, we continuously keep expanding and maintaining the Kubernetes Fury ecosystem to keep up with the latest upstream changes.
Let us dive together into the changes for this new version.
Highlights of KFD release
- Three new versions were released, making available all the latest features and bug fixes to three different Kubernetes versions.
- New Distribution release
v1.25.1, certified by the CNCF, adds support for Kubernetes
- Updated all the core modules to the latest upstream versions with bug fixes, security updates, and new features.
- We've improved the out-of-the-box monitoring capabilities of all the core modules, adding new metrics and alerts for key components of the Distribution.
- Several improvements to the logging module have been included in these releases:
- The Loki package, included as a tech preview in the previous releases, has been greatly improved and is now considered production-grade.
- A Highly Availability MinIO cluster is now deployed as part of the logging stack to store securely the logs of your cluster and applications.
- A new index is now used to better segregate the logs from the infrastructural components from the applications' logs. Lowering the noise level when searching them.
- The Monitoring module also has some new features:
- Thanos, which provides long-term storage of metrics and centralized metrics for several Prometheus instances, has been refactored to include more deployment options and updated to the latest version.
- Karma is now part of the module. Karma provides a central dashboard to monitor several instances of Alertmanager, making it easier to monitor the health of several clusters.
