What Is Multi-Cloud Container Platform?

Updated at:Mar 06, 2020 GMT+08:00

Multi-Cloud Container Platform (MCP) is developed by HUAWEI CLOUD based on years of experience in the cloud container field and community-advanced cluster federation technologies. It provides multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud containerized solutions for unified cluster management across clouds, unified deployment and traffic distribution of multi-cluster application. It not only resolves multi-cloud disaster recovery, but also plays an important role in various scenarios including traffic sharing and separation of services and data, development and production, and computing and services.

Function Description

  • Unified cluster management

    MCP provides cluster federation to implement unified management for clusters of different cloud service providers. As a unified entry for multiple clusters, MCP supports dynamic cluster access and global cluster monitoring dashboard, and facilitates cluster deployment, release, and O&M.

  • Global application management

    Based on the multi-cluster and federation technologies, MCP manages Kubernetes clusters in different regions or clouds for unified global application management and cross-cluster application deployment, deletion, and upgrade based on the Kubernetes community federation standard APIs.

  • Cross-cluster auto scaling

    MCP supports cross-cluster auto scaling policies to balance the pod distribution in each cluster and implement global load balancing. You do not need to worry about horizontal scaling of cluster nodes. MCP automatically scales in or out resources required by applications based on the application workload.

  • Cross-cluster service discovery

    MCP supports federated service creation and cross-cluster service discovery. It implements service region affinity based on the proximity access principle. In this way, when a service is deployed in multiple regions, the one in the region where the user is located is preferentially accessed, reducing network latency.

  • Standards compliance

    MCP is compatible with the latest federation architecture of the Kubernetes community and provides Kubernetes federation APIs and Kubernetes APIs. You can use the Kubernetes command lines and APIs to deploy containerized applications without modifying any service code.

  • Interconnection with HUAWEI CLOUD services

    MCP seamlessly interconnects with HUAWEI CLOUD Application Operations Management (AOM) and ContainerOps to implement multi-cloud container monitoring and DevOps-based containerized pipeline capabilities from source code to image deployment.
