Mirantis acquires Shipa to extend management capabilities beyond containers to applications

Mirantis has acquired Shipa to add automated application discovery, operations, security, and observability to the Lens Kubernetes Platform.

Lens helps eliminate Kubernetes complexity – accelerating mainstream developer adoption – and empowers users to easily manage, develop, debug, monitor, and troubleshoot their workloads across multiple clusters in real-time, supporting any certified Kubernetes distribution, on any infrastructure.

Shipa’s technology brings application intelligence and awareness to Lens, making it easy and simple for Kubernetes app owners to run, optimize, secure, and support their apps anywhere. With minimal effort, users can see how their apps and microservices are deployed, along with a graphical view of network connections and maps of application dependencies.

Moreover, users can create and share run books tuned to their needs building on a library of certified templates for a variety of use cases and security requirements.

“Our goal at Shipa, from the beginning, was to give DevOps and platform engineering teams the capability to choose their own underlying tools with a focus on automation to reduce the complexity of the technology infrastructure required by cloud-native applications,” said Bruno Andrade, CEO of Shipa.

“Our technology makes deployment and management of applications and updates much easier and faster by letting developers focus on what they do best and not infrastructure,” Andrade added.

Shipa, like Lens, reduces complexity – shielding developers from having to know the intricacies of Kubernetes – helping to deliver and manage applications faster while improving security and governance, as well as making updates easier.
