ACK One allows you to schedule and scale clusters deployed in different environments to improve resource utilization. If you want to accelerate intelligent computing, you can also use the distributed cache feature to cache data from heterogeneous data sources across regions.

Disaster Recovery

ACK One allows you to back up, restore, and migrate data to ensure the high availability of clusters across regions and use the active geo-redundancy architecture to ensure business continuity.

Security Center

ACK One provides security policies to optimize multi-cluster management. You can configure intelligent inspection to identify configuration risks and vulnerabilities in clusters.

Application Center

ACK One allows you to deploy distributed applications and manage the network traffic of the applications across regions.

Service Mesh

Service Mesh is a fully managed service that is compatible with Istio. You can use this service to manage the network traffic of microservices applications.

Application Marketplace

ACK One allows you to deploy cloud-native software trusted by ACK One or other Alibaba Cloud services. You can deploy the software in different regions or clusters with a few clicks.

Scenarios

Inter-region, Intra-region, and Hybrid-cloud Disaster Recovery

The backup center provided by ACK One allows you to back up Kubernetes clusters deployed in data centers or on third-party cloud platforms. You can back up multiple resources,such as orchestration templates and volumes. The backup center provides real-time backup and fast restoration (within seconds) capabilities for enterprises.

Benefits

  • Cloud Migration

    ACK One allows you to create consistent backups for applications across regions or in data centers. You can use the backups to restore applications within a few seconds. This way, you can quickly migrate your applications to the cloud.

  • Data Disaster Recovery

    ACK One allows you to back up stateful applications across regions or from a data center to the cloud. You can customize backup policies and restore policies to meet your business requirements.

  • Application Disaster Recovery

    ACK One provides disaster recovery capabilities to protect your applications and data across regions and in data centers. ACK One also allows you to manage the network traffic of applications in real - time.

  • Active Geo-Redundancy

    ACK One provides a disaster recovery system that is developed based on three data centers across two zones. The disaster recovery system is provided for immediate use and is compatible with open - source Kubernetes. You can use the disaster recovery system to ensure the high availability of your business system.

Multi-Cluster Management

ACK One allows you to manage and maintain Kubernetes clusters deployed in different regions. You can deploy applications and distribute jobs to multiple clusters across regions. ACK One also allows you to distribute the workloads of applications across clusters using blue-green deployment or canary release.

Benefits

  • O&M of Resources across Regions

    Allows you to manage clusters, connections, permissions, configurations, and secrets across regions

  • Job Distribution across Clusters

    Automatically routes and distributes different types of jobs across clusters, such as Spark jobs, Kubernetes jobs, and TensorFlow jobs

  • Resource Quotas for Tenants of Different Clusters

    Allows you to configure resource quotas for tenants that belong to different clusters

  • Permissions for Tenants of Different Clusters

    Allows you to configure permissions for tenants that belong to different clusters

  • Application Distribution

    Allows you to deploy an application to multiple clusters at the same time using blue-green releases and canary releases, and allows you to roll back to a specific version

  • Traffic Distribution

    Allows you to configure traffic distribution and network policies across clusters

Register External Clusters to Build a Hybrid Cloud

You can use ACK One to manage cloud resources and on-premises resources. ACK One saves you the need to switch between different consoles in a multi-cloud environment. You can deploy containers regardless of the underlying infrastructure resources. This way, you can use the same images and orchestration templates to deploy applications on the cloud and in data centers.

Benefits

  • Self-Managed Clusters in Data Centers

    Allows on-premises clusters and clusters on the cloud to join the same network and share resources

  • On-Demand Scaling of Computing Resources and Applications in the Cloud

    Scales out resources in the cloud and distributes user traffic to the resources during peak hours

  • Observability Enhancement

    Provides observability capabilities such as logging, monitoring, and events to ensure a consistent O&M experience on the cloud

  • Security Enhancement

    Allows you to enable security auditing, security inspection, and node risk detection in a few clicks

  • On-Premises Development and Testing

    Allows you to publish applications that are developed and tested in data centers to the cloud

AI and Big Data Computing, and Scheduler ack-co-scheduler for Registered Clusters

ACK One allows you to deploy machine learning applications to multiple clusters with a few clicks. You can trace tests and training tasks in real time, publish models, and store data in a distributed storage system. This saves the inconvenience of application deployment and O&M, and enables rapid application development while focusing focus on machine learning.

Benefits

  • AI Algorithm Development

    Allows you to manage jobs, quotas, and observability

  • AI-Assisted Training

    Supports topology awareness and provides multiple job scheduling policies to improve training efficiency ,and adopts an architecture that decouples computing and storage to accelerate distributed training jobs

  • AI Inference

    Supports GPU sharing, which increases resource utilization by 300% compared with the open source implementation ,and allows you to scale cloud resources and on-premises resources in a centralized manner

  • Intelligent CPU Scheduling

    Provides intelligent CPU scheduling and non-uniform memory access (NUMA) for Elastic Compute Service (ECS) Bare Metal instances

Application Distribution across Regions

Allows you to use a specific policy to publish an application to clusters in different regions, allows you to schedule jobs to different namespaces based on job priorities, and optimizes job scheduling for multi-cluster deployment.

Benefits

  • Application Deployment across Clusters

    Allows you to deploy an application to multiple Kubernetes clusters in a versioned and declarative manner

  • Job Scheduling across Clusters

    Allows you to distribute and schedule TensorFlow, PyTorch, Spark, Flink, and Cron jobs that are optimized for multi-cluster deployment

  • Hot Updates/Rollbacks

    Allows you to update or roll back applications without recreating the applications
