Aptomi is a platform for development teams that simplifies the roll-out and operation of container-based applications on Kubernetes. It introduces a service-centric abstraction, which allows users to compose applications from multiple connected components. Aptomi supports components packaged using Helm, ksonnet, k8s YAMLs, and any other Kubernetes-friendly way!

Aptomi's approach to application delivery becomes especially powerful in a multi-team setup, where components owned by different teams must be put together into a service. With ownership boundaries, Dev teams can specify multi-cluster and multi-env (e.g. dev, stage, prod) service behavior, as well as control the lifecycle and updates of their respective services.

Aptomi also provides contextual visibility into teams and services, allowing our users to visualize complex dependencies and accurately assess the impact of changes.

Why Aptomi?


Step #1: Installation

There are several ways to install Aptomi. The simplest one is Compact, but you may pick one that suits your needs:

Installation Mode Complexity Description
Compact Easy Aptomi will be installed on a local machine (binaries or in a single Docker container)
Kubernetes Medium Aptomi will be deployed on k8s via Helm chart

You can also install Aptomi in a stripped-down mode with a fake executor:

Installation Mode Complexity Description
Concepts Easy Use this only if you want get familiar with Aptomi's concepts, API and UI. App deployment to k8s is DISABLED

Step #2: Setting up k8s Cluster

You will need to have access to a k8s cluster to deploy apps from the provided examples.

Having a powerful k8s cluster with a good internet connection will definitely provide a better experience compared to a local, single-node k8s cluster. We consider GKE to be the best option if you don't have your own k8s cluster.

Kubernetes Cluster When to use How to run
Your own If you already have a k8s cluster set up Configure Aptomi to use an existing k8s cluster
Google Kubernetes Engine If you have a Google account and free credits Configure Aptomi to use GKE
k8s / Minikube Single-node, local machine with 16GB+ RAM Configure Aptomi to use Minikube
k8s / Docker For Mac Single-node, local machine with 16GB+ RAM Configure Aptomi to use Docker For Mac

Step #3: Running Examples

Once the Aptomi server is up and your k8s cluster is ready, you can get started by running the following examples:

Example Description
twitter-analytics Twitter Analytics Application, multiple services, multi-cloud, based on Helm
twitter-analytics-with-concourse-ci Twitter Analytics Application, integrated with Concourse CI/CD pipelines
guestbook K8S Guestbook Application, multi-cloud, based on K8S YAMLs
