Challenges Managing Kubernetes ConfigMaps and Secrets

There needs to be a better way to manage Kubernetes ConfigMaps and secrets. One approach is to use a centralized configuration data platform that automatically synchronizes ConfigMaps and secrets with a single source of truth. Developers will spend less time manually editing, copying and pasting YAML files and more time on new features.


Why is Secrets Management Spiraling Out of Control?

Managing secrets is one of the most important components of a comprehensive configuration management strategy. In response, unified configuration management solutions provide consolidated access to all parameters, environment variables, and secrets.

This unified view of all config data streamlines workflows, enhances compliance, reduces errors, and boosts productivity.

CloudTruth Raises $5.25 Million To Solve Cloud Configuration Issues For Software Developers And CloudOps Teams

CloudTruth, a unified configuration management company, announced today it has raised $5.25 million in seed funding led by Glasswing Ventures and Gutbrain Ventures, with additional funding from Stage 1 Ventures and York IE.

The Seed Series will be used to further develop the company’s disruptive offering which helps software developers and CloudOps teams increase uptime, improve security, and eliminate cloud configuration risks resulting from decentralized and distributed deployment and settings.


CloudTruth Founding Story: Find the Problem, Find the Solution

With my background as a CTO, I experienced the pain of configuration sprawl first-hand and led teams that built their own internal tools to address this challenge.

Using our own experiences as a backboard, Matt and I set out to provide a true “single record of cloud truth” to help DevOps teams.

We are announcing funding today that will allow us to bring this much-needed solution to market!
