EAK8S the Enterprise Architect Plugin for Kubernetes Clusters
Use Enterprise Architect to Manage your Microservice Architecture on Kubernetes Clusters
EAK8S is an Enterprise Architect (EA) add-in specifically designed for managing and optimizing microservice architectures deployed on Kubernetes clusters. This tool serves as a bridge between the conceptual world of solution architecture and the practical realm of Kubernetes, a leading platform for automating deployment, scaling, and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts.

Our team will provide a comprehensive walkthrough, showing you exactly how EAK8S can streamline your processes and bring new insights into your architecture.
Streamline Kubernetes Deployment, Enhance Compliance, Uncover Insights
EAK8S, the Enterprise Architect Add-In, revolutionizes microservice architecture management by simplifying design-to-deployment processes, ensuring real-time synchronization, and providing deep architectural understanding.
Predefined Solution Architecture Templates
EAK8S offers predefined templates for microservice architectures, streamlining the initial design process. These templates provide a solid foundation, reducing the time and effort needed to create architecture models from scratch.
Conversion to Kubernetes Deployment Templates
The tool enables the conversion of solution architecture models into Kubernetes deployment templates according to customizable generation templates. This feature allows feeding DevOps pipelines from Solution Architecture models, ensuring seamless transition from design to deployment and traceability of solution architecture to runtime components.
Synchronization with Kubernetes Cluster State
EAK8S synchronizes solution architecture models with the current state of Kubernetes clusters. This synchronization is key to validating the completeness of solutions and conducting automatic compliance checks, ensuring that the runtime state adheres to a solution architecture.
Discovery of Actual Architecture Relationships
By examining the state of Kubernetes/OpenShift clusters in production, EAK8S uncovers the real-world relationships within the architecture. This insight is crucial for understanding the deployed environment and optimizing it effectively.
Identification of Missing Architecture Information
The tool assists in finding missing elements in the architecture by analyzing production workloads. This capability helps in identifying actual Application and Product dependencies out of underlying component dependencies. Effectively, the Architecture Views can be discovered from runtime state, allowing to identify gaps and update the architecture models.
Inference of Application Dependencies
EAK8S infers application dependencies by examining the interactions between components. This analysis is vital for understanding the complex web of dependencies in microservice architectures, enabling better management and optimization.
