Elevate Your Infrastructure

Airship makes operating open infrastructure
simple, repeatable, and resilient.

About Airship

Airship is a collection of loosely coupled but interoperable open source tools that declaratively automate cloud provisioning. Airship is a robust delivery mechanism for organizations who want to embrace containers as the new unit of infrastructure delivery at scale. Starting from raw bare metal infrastructure, Airship manages the full lifecycle of data center infrastructure to deliver a production-grade Kubernetes cluster with Helm deployed artifacts. Airship allows operators to manage their infrastructure deployments and lifecycle through the declarative YAML documents that describe an Airship environment.

Features

Simple
Simple
Infrastructure is managed through declarative YAML files and there is one workflow for both deployments and updates. Airship does not require operators to develop their own set of complex orchestration tooling to automate Airship.
Flexible
Flexible
Kubernetes resources (native resources and CustomResources) are the basic unit of deployment for all software, allowing for simple integration with best-in-class tooling and Kubernetes operators. Expanding the software stack is as simple as adding new resources to Airship declarations.
Repeatable
Repeatable
Platform state including all versions are specified declaratively, and Airship, Helm, and Kubernetes align containers, dependencies, and configuration in the same way every time.
Resilient
Resilient
All jobs and services are running as containers, provide health status, and are healed by Kubernetes supervision by taking full advantage of native Kubernetes resiliency.
Self-Hosted
Self-Hosted
Airship deploys its provisioning control plane and operators in a self-hosted manner. This allows them to be upgraded like any other software component in the system.
