Mirantis launches Lens Pro to improve Kubernetes developer productivity

Mirantis launches Lens Pro with features for enterprise users that simplify the developer experience working with Kubernetes by adding on-demand live support, easy setup for container image scanning, and vulnerability reporting , and an integrated local Kubernetes cluster.

Lens takes the complexity out of Kubernetes, enabling adoption by mainstream developers. Lens allows users to manage, develop, debug, monitor, and troubleshoot their workloads across multiple clusters in real time, and supports any certified Kubernetes distribution, on any infrastructure. The Lens desktop app has an intuitive graphical user interface and works with Linux, macOS, and Windows operating systems.

“Kubernetes has quickly become the de facto operating system for the cloud, but developers are still struggling to manage its complexity – and it’s slowing the development of mission-critical applications,” said Miska Kaipiainen, vice president of Kubernetes. product engineering at Mirantis. “Lens provides developers and DevOps practitioners with a single platform to develop and operate their workloads and environments.”

New features in Lens Pro improve developer productivity and create a more intuitive experience. Lens Pro simplifies the internal development loop – the iterative process a developer goes through when writing, building, and debugging code.

“Lens users report saving eight hours per week on average,” said Adrian Ionel, CEO and co-founder of Mirantis. “They can now use that time to innovate for their users and their businesses.”

In addition to on-demand support, the Lens Desktop Kube feature can be used to create a local Kubernetes development environment with one click. The development environment is powered by a virtual machine embedded in the Lens desktop application, providing developers with a fully integrated solution for Kubernetes cloud-native application development.

The new Lens Container Security feature set offers features that improve the developer’s ability to discover vulnerabilities earlier in the development cycle – during local development – saving time, money and effort. help prevent potentially devastating problems later. With this feature, developers can view Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) reports directly in their local development environment in the appropriate context on any platform or architecture. This allows developers to view and patch vulnerabilities in their development environment through a single tool. The feature is not designed to replace centralized container image analysis and reporting tools, but to extend and integrate their capabilities for presenting this information to developers in their internal development workflow.
