Octopus Deploy makes it easy to manage your Kubernetes resources, whether you’re starting simple or want complete control over a complex setup. This section has everything you need to know about using Octopus for Kubernetes CD.

Kubernetes pipeline

Why use Octopus as your Kubernetes CD platform

  • Model environments and tenants for hundreds of applications with ease.
  • Work with any Kubernetes distribution in the cloud or on-premises. Source YAML or Helm charts from Git or repositories.
  • Use the centralized dashboard and detailed resource status to learn the state of all your deployments and clusters in an instant.
  • Use configuration templates across environments, tenants, or even applications.
  • Automate routine maintenance and respond faster to emergencies:
    • Octopus runbooks and projects share the same variables and accounts to interact with your clusters
    • Use pre-approved kubectl scripts

Getting started

With Octopus, you can choose between managing your application configuration with Helm charts or YAML.
