The Akuity Platform has an agent-based architecture, allowing the cluster to connect to the Argo control plane (not the other way around). Secrets stay safe in the Kubernetes clusters.
The platform provides an extra layer of visibility with audit logs, deployment reports, and DORA metrics. It also takes care of governance with SSO configuration, RBAC, system accounts, and external access configuration.
Akuity provides one control plane for all Argo CD applications deployed to clusters.
Akuity doesn’t need secrets nor even direct access to your Kubernetes clusters. Thanks to an agent-based architecture, the clusters connect to the Argo control plane and not the other way around.
Log, store, and analyze all the important events that took place inside your Argo CD control plane. Increase discoverability of any security liabilities and react instantly.
Control plane is configured with high availability out-of-the-box and configurations are backed up frequently. No need to recreate your Argo CD configuration after your cluster goes down.
Decide which Argo CD version you want to run and Akuity will ensure that your clusters will be seamlessly updated or downgraded to it. This also includes applying security patches right after their release.
Dynamically choose a host cluster for Argo CD components. The following components' location is configurable: Application Set, Repo Server or Image Updater.
The on-premises version of Akuity is a fully-functional branch of the product that will be updated with new features and innovations alongside the SaaS offering.
With custom fine tuning and unique distributed architecture, Akuity can support 35K applications inside one Argo CD instance.
Akuity reduces traffic between the Argo control plane and your Kubernetes clusters by at least 80%. This enables you to manage all the edge clusters without worrying about the bandwidth limit, and save money.
With a built-in and configured autoscaler, your Argo CD will be automatically tuned to accommodate the ever changing size of managed infrastructure with the guarantee of high performance.
Model the delivery of application changes in a more granular, environment-specific way.
Manage the basic Argo CD settings from Akuity dashboard in a declarative way – customize your Argo CD in a flash.
Configure your Argo CD notifications using Akuity’s intuitive user interface.
Store and analyze your deployment metrics inside the Akuity. Troubleshoot failed deployments and gather metrics regarding every single deployment.
Enable such crucial Argo CD extensions as Argo Rollouts UI and Argo Metrics with one click.
