Teleport (formerly Gravitational) needed to meet SaaS providers’ demand for deploying and managing their applications across multiple environments, including on-prem, private cloud and public cloud. SaaS providers needed such infrastructure flexibility to service enterprises requiring particular security and regulatory requirements. Through its Gravity product, formerly called Telekube (multi-regional Kubernetes for deploying and managing distributed applications), Gravitational sought to solve the SaaS portability and security problem by onboarding SaaS providers to Kubernetes, and helping them to deliver Kubernetes to various remote environments.

Teleport’s team chose InfluxData as the high availability remote monitoring and alerting platform for the Kubernetes clusters they offer SaaS providers. They use InfluxDB to monitor Kubernetes both as a system component and applications running on top of it. Using InfluxData’s platform, Teleport enabled SaaS providers to deliver portability and security, and thereby gain clients they would otherwise have been unable to service.
