About the Book Crossplane The Cloud Native Control Plane by Victor Farcic

Imagine if you could create, for people in your company, a platform that would provide them with the same experience they have when working with AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, or any other public Cloud provider. Imagine if there would be a service for everything they do.

Do you need a database that works exactly as we expect it to work in this company with all the security, backup, compliance, and other policies we have?


There is a service for that.

Do you need to run a backend application in Kubernetes? There is a service for that as well.

Do you need a Kubernetes cluster itself? There is yet another service for that.

All you have to do is define a simple manifest that contains only the things you care about and abstracts all the unavoidable complexity. From there on, all you have to do is submit that manifest, the desired state, to the control plane API and observe the actual state. Even better, you can forget about the API and just push it to Git.

Wouldn't that be awesome?

Wouldn't it be great if we could replicate the experience of using a public Cloud provider but made specifically for our needs? Wouldn't it be great if there were a clearly defined API and a clear separation between the tasks end-users need to perform and the tasks that are the responsibility of the platform itself?

If that sounds like something you might need, then Crossplane is just the project that will get you there. It enables us with capabilities of creating control planes based on the same principles public cloud providers have. It democratizes technology that was previously reserved mostly for big Cloud providers like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. It enables us to create internal developer platforms.
