What is Kublr?

Kublr is an enterprise-grade Kubernetes management platform.

Why use the layered architectural approach?

It provides an openness and makes sure you do not stand in the way of Kubernetes and what Kubernetes does best.

What challenges do developers face moving from one platform to another?

There are a lot but by keeping concerns and layers separate you make it possible to move it piece by piece.

What is the downside to using open source resources?

Support can be inconsistent compared to enterprise solutions.
