Our mission is to ease cloud native adoption for enterprises with heterogeneous environments and strict security and governance requirements. Comprehensive and flexible, we are committed to keeping the cloud native promise while providing the reliability and security large organizations need.
Incubated by EastBanc Technologies, a technology agnostic custom- software development firm working with Kubernetes since its inception, Kublr was launched in 2016. Continuously addressing the same challenges while helping customers transition to containers and Kubernetes, we developed a set of best practices and engineering solutions to simplify containers and Kubernetes implementation in our projects. With no ready-to-use solution on the market that met the strict requirements of our customers, we saw ourselves recreating the wheel over and over again. We decided to bundle all that know-how and best practices into a platform built specifically with enterprise needs in mind.
Because we always leveraged open-source, cloud-native technologies in our client work, that approach is ingrained in our team’s DNA. Committed to keeping the open-source promise, the Kublr Platform is designed to remain flexible and extensible. While fully preconfigured to speed up adoption, every aspect can be customized—Kubernetes being the only constant.
With 20 years of software architecture and development experience, Kublr CTO Oleg Chunikhin is responsible for defining Kublr’s technology strategy and standards.
He has championed the standardization of DevOps in all Kublr does and is committed to driving adoption of container technologies and automation.
Oleg holds a Bachelor of Mathematics and a Master of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science from Novosibirsk State University, and is an AWS Certified Software Architect.
A popular speaker on all things Kubernetes, Oleg’s credentials include Interop ITX (Las Vegas), LISA18, DeveloperWeek, Cloud Computing Expo, and 21st Cloud Expo.
