Wayfinder Features

Wayfinder enables developers to build and ship applications quickly and securely on self-service Kubernetes infrastructure.


Wayfinder's most powerful features are:

  • Self serve Kubernetes provides clusters configured with best practices.
  • Cluster provisioning provides secure and consistent provisioning of Kubernetes environments for developers.
  • Accounts and account users provide a single source for access and control across the estate.
  • Plans and policies let administrators define the type and shape of resources for developers to consume.
  • Cloud account automation and management provisions cloud accounts for your developers on demand.

For more information, see Wayfinder Architecture.
