Stratos: A rich web based UI for managing and monitoring multi-cloud PaaS


At the recent SUSECON conference in Nashville, Neil MacDougall from SUSE introduced and demonstrated Stratos — a web-based management application that is part of SUSE Cloud Application Platform.

Stratos allows administrators and developers to monitor and manage SUSE Cloud Application Platform and the applications deployed to it. It supports management of multiple deployments of SUSE Cloud Application Platform and Cloud Foundry across different private and public cloud providers. It includes Prometheus for monitoring of both Cloud Foundry applications and the underlying Kubernetes environment on which SUSE Cloud Application Platform is deployed. Neil showcased the extensions to Stratos that take it beyond just a UI for Cloud Foundry to allow it to present metrics and data from Kubernetes.

Stratos was originally developed by SUSE and open-sourced to the community – it became a Cloud Foundry incubated project and is on its way to graduate to become a part of core Cloud Foundry. SUSE still leads the development of Stratos which is a constituent component of the SUSE Cloud Application Platform product. Neil talked about how Stratos has evolved as an open-source project and how it has been embraced and adopted by the Cloud Foundry community.

SUSE has posted all recorded talks from SUSECON on YouTube. Check them out if you want to learn more about what SUSE has to offer. We’re not just Linux anymore! I’ll be posting more SUSE Cloud Application Platform talks here over the coming days. Watch Neil’s talk below:
