Cogo Labs Uses Fairwinds Insights to Align Kubernetes Development Across the Business

Fairwinds today shared that tech incubator Cogo Labs is using Fairwinds Insights, the company’s governance and security platform, to power their hybrid-cloud platform for rapid enterprise value, Cogo Cloud. Fairwinds Insights enables Cogo Cloud to automate the highest standards in Kubernetes deployment for efficiency, security and scalability.
“We are creating billion-dollar companies by integrating hardened APIs between the best technologies on the planet,” said Joe Presbrey, Chief Technology Officer at Cogo Labs. “Fairwinds is helping Cogo Labs as we continue to scale by enabling our startups to be more productive. The Fairwinds’ Admission Controller is a powerful feature that lets us insist on the highest standards in Kubernetes deployments through automation. Providing hardened and scalable infrastructure enables our teams to stay laser focused on their core business and take big swings as we position our startups for long-term value creation.”
Cogo Cloud is immune to misconfigurations from entering its clusters with the Fairwinds Insights Admission Controller, which also identifies and quickly remediates zero-day vulnerabilities. Cogo Cloud customers also benefit from Fairwinds Insights application rightsizing features, offering recommendations so developers can trivially optimize operational expenditure.
