We are excited to announce that OpsMx added the Spinnaker operator for OpenShift and Kubernetes environments. Spinnaker Operator allows for easier deployment and maintenance of OpsMx Spinnaker in an OpenShift and Kubernetes environment.

What is Operator?

An Operator is a method of packaging, deploying and managing a Kubernetes application (in this case, Spinnaker CD). A Kubernetes application is an application that is both deployed on Kubernetes and managed using the Kubernetes APIs and kubectl tooling. You can think of Operators as the runtime that manages this type of application on Kubernetes. Read more at Operators.

What is OperatorHub.io?

Red Hat launched OperatorHub in collaboration with AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft. OperatorHub.io is designed to be the public registry for finding Kubernetes Operator backed services.
