Announcing the General Availability of Synadia Control Plane
Jun 6, 2023
Today we are pleased to announce the general availability of Synadia Control Plane!
Synadia Control Plane is everything you need to manage NATS.io deployments, whether on-premise, across clouds, or at the edge. It is a unified interface for securing, monitoring, and managing NATS systems, so you can focus on building next-generation applications.
What can Control Plane do?
Synadia Control Plane provides topology visualization of all servers in a NATS system, enabling system administrators to find performance hot spots, quickly and easily.
Client connections can be filtered, grouped, and sorted, allowing for detailed analysis of the applications connected to NATS. System administrators can grant application owners access to view connection activity on their NATS Accounts or Users only, enabling robust self-service debugging capabilities.
Control Plane runs a monitoring agent that collects metrics from every NATS server that is based on the open source NATS Surveyor project. A customizable set of alert rules is included to notify you when the system is experiencing failures or NATS Accounts are approaching limits.
Control Plane makes managing NATS Accounts and Users a breeze. Sharing messages and streams across Accounts is easier than ever, enabling a host of new possibilities for collaboration between teams.
JetStream management is also supported - Stream, KV Bucket, and Consumer management are all handled by Control Plane.
Control Plane ships with a robust policy-based authorization engine. Roles and policies can be customized to fit virtually any use case.
It supports integration with enterprise authorization systems including Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Google Workspace, Okta, or any provider that supports Open ID Connect.
Security and API
Security is a top priority in Control Plane - TLS is supported throughout the application. Secrets encryption can be handled by Key Management Systems (KMS) including AWS Key Management Service, Azure KeyVault, Google Cloud KMS, and HashiCorp Vault.
Control Plane includes a REST API to enable programmatic provisioning and workflows.
