Crossplane is an open source multicloud control plane to manage your
cloud-native applications and infrastructure across environments, clusters,
regions and clouds. It enables provisioning and full-lifecycle management
of applications and managed services from your choice of cloud using
Crossplane can be installed into an existing Kubernetes cluster to add managed service provisioning or deployed as a dedicated control plane for multi-cluster management and workload scheduling.
Crossplane enables the community to build and publish Stacks to add more clouds and cloud services to Crossplane with support for out-of-tree extensibility and independent release schedules. Crossplane includes Stacks for GCP, AWS, and Azure today.
Crossplane has four main feature areas that can be used independently:
- Crossplane Services - provision managed services from kubectl.
- Crossplane Stacks - extend Crossplane with new functionality.
- Crossplane Workloads - define complete applications and schedule across clusters, regions, and clouds.
- Crossplane Clusters - manage multiple Kubernetes clusters from a single control plane.
Architecture and Vision
The full architecture and vision of the Crossplane project is described in depth in the architecture document. It is the best place to learn more about how Crossplane fits into the Kubernetes ecosystem, the intended use cases, and comparisons to existing projects.

The project is an early preview. We realize that it's going to take a village to arrive at the vision of a multicloud control plane, and we wanted to open this up early to get your help and feedback. Please see the Roadmap for details on what we are planning for future releases, and the API Reference for the status of each Crossplane API group.
Official releases of Crossplane can be found on the releases page. Please note that it is strongly recommended that you use official releases of Crossplane, as unreleased versions from the master branch are subject to changes and incompatibilities that will not be supported in the official releases. Builds from the master branch can have functionality changed and even removed at any time without compatibility support and without prior notice.
