We came sprinting into KubeCon with fresh code in hand, sharing the latest version of Crossplane just in time for our KubeCon community.

It’s day four for us and we haven't had a chance to catch our breath. Connecting with the community and witnessing your passion for Crossplane and Rook has been exhilarating. We’re so thankful for all the enthusiasm and support.

It’s our final day here. Come check us out in Booth SE32—we’d love to connect.

Hello, KubeCon! Meet MulticloudCon.

MulticloudCon Panel: Cloud Provider's Take on Multicloud

We kicked off with the launch of the first-ever MultiCloudCon, a zero-day event hosted with GitLab and sponsored by Google Cloud. The community packed in and the energy in the room was palpable as speaker after speaker demonstrated the clear transition into a new era of cloud computing: Multicloud is a reality and companies are recognizing the need for a more open cloud computing platform—offering more choice and control—where all managed services are first class citizens in the ecosystem.

Kubecon News: Three Integrations into Crossplane announced this week plus the Crossplane v0.5!

So much hard work went into so many things pre-KubeCon and we’re excited to finally share with our community.

Here’s some of the news from the last four days:

Swiss DevOps company,VSHN, embeds Crossplane in next-gen hosted offering for cloud-native apps

Project Syn, a new project from Swiss DevOps company, VSHN, provides an opinionated set of integrated tools and processes on any Kubernetes service and cloud infrastructure provider using Crossplane for Kubernetes-native cloud service provisioning for cloud-native apps running on AWS, GCP, Azure, and more.

By leveraging Crossplane, users of Project Syn can specify the backend services needed in a completely cloud-independent way. Provisioning of these services happens fully automated, handled by the tooling in the most optimal way. As an example: when a MySQL service is requested, Crossplane would provision a cloud service if the cloud provides it or deploys it inside the Kubernetes cluster leveraging a service operator. This way the user fully focus on the application.
