Upbound's production-supported distribution of Crossplane

Universal Crossplane (UXP) is a Crossplane distribution based on and used by Upbound to create reliable and secure Crossplane control planes.

Production-ready Crossplane

Upbound lets you easily upgrade your platform to our downstream distribution of Crossplane, UXP, as well as our Official Providers so you can build your platform on a solid foundation.

What Makes UXP Different From Open Source Crossplane?

Enterprise UXP provides you with a single pane of glass and real-time dashboards for all UXP instances along with unlimited private listings in the Registry. It also includes 24/7 support and optional professional services delivered by the world’s foremost Crossplane experts.

No Longterm Forks

We are still good open source citizens despite inventing Crossplane. UXP is a downstream distribution we can support, releasing patches and fixes to you without waiting on a community-driven release process. All bug fixes get merged upstream over time.
 

Tested By Upbound

Universal Crossplane releases follow open source Crossplane releases by one to two weeks which allows the Upbound team to observe, test, and address any issues experienced by upstream Crossplane users.

Priority Bug Fixes

Universal Crossplane allows you to get patches fast without waiting on open source Crossplane release cycles. UXP is maintained entirely by our team at Upbound. When bugs are reported, we prioritize and address them ASAP.

Enhanced Productivity

Developing Providers and Configurations for the first time can be tricky, but UXP makes it easier by integrating with the Upbound CLI.

24/7 Customer Support

Universal Crossplane customers enjoy the peace of mind that they will receive 24/7 support for all of their deployments.
