Fairwinds Insights Drives Company Growth as Organizations Require Kubernetes Governance Software to Manage Cloud Costs, Enable Developers

Cloud-native users lean on Fairwinds to ship applications faster, more cost-effectively and with less risk

Fairwinds, the leading provider of Kubernetes governance software, continues to experience strong year-over-year growth for its Kubernetes security, cost, compliance and guardrail software, Fairwinds Insights. Over the past 12 months, Fairwinds has seen Insights sales grow by 268% over the prior year, with the addition of customers such as Veracode, Boingo Wireless, Clover, and Grant Street Group.

Throughout 2022, Fairwinds focused on enhancing Insights as a tool that helps to better serve DevOps and platform engineering teams as they continue to increase their usage of the cloud. Gartner forecasts that public cloud service spending will increase by 20.7% in 2023, while Kubernetes growth is expected to spike as more DevOps teams start to support multi-cloud deployments. 

"Developers are innovators by nature, but because of the complexities of Kubernetes, they can make a number of potential missteps. As a result, platform engineers are often stuck acting as K8s Help Desks," said Bill Ledingham, CEO of Fairwinds. "A lack of Kubernetes expertise means that the road gets bumpy very quickly, leaving DevOps teams and platform engineers in need of help. With Insights, platform engineers can stop being a help desk and instead provide a paved road for development teams to develop on Kubernetes cost-efficiently, securely and reliably." 

Fairwinds milestones over the past 12 months include:

  • Invested in further developing Insights, launching a free tier for organizations beginning to scale up their use of Kubernetes. The company introduced a host of new functionality, including Workload Cost Allocation and additional security enhancements, such as AutoScan  Infrastructure-as-Code scanning for GitOps, third-party container upgrade recommendations, and Falco runtime support.
  • Released the Fairwinds Insights Compliance Self Assessment for SOC 2 to help DevSecOps teams track compliance status within Kubernetes.
  • Launched Fairwinds GoNoGo, a new open-source tool, to define and then discover whether add-ons installed with Helm are safe to upgrade. 
  • Added new checks, mutation support, and automated fix functionality to Fairwinds Polaris — a leading open-source Kubernetes Policy Engine.
  • Certified Fairwinds Insights with the FinOps Foundation, validating the software as helping users successfully adopt cloud financial management practices that are aligned with FinOps.
  • Experienced 28% growth for Fairwinds Kubernetes professional services.
  • Served the open-source community with over 300,000 downloads of popular projects, such as Polaris and Goldilocks.
  • Released the Kubernetes Benchmark Report 2023 to help DevOps teams better understand how their Kubernetes workloads compare to other organizations.

Fairwinds Insights provides Kubernetes security, cost, compliance and guardrails in one platform. Users gain visibility into their Kubernetes workloads security, cost usage and reliability, which helps them avoid expensive misconfigurations. The all-in-one governance platform helps DevOps teams simplify Kubernetes and enable developer self-service to achieve production readiness faster.

The world’s only anonymous singer-songwriter, Peter Lake, emerges out of the woods with his EP ‘GREEN’ dedicated to the epic love affair between Blue...

Says Peter Lake: "I will be known as the greatest songwriter of all time. Get on board early! If you're going to climb a mountain, why not Everest?"

The self-proclaimed "Ghost of New York" strikes again with three hit songs that make up his first release of 2023. Peter Lake, the world's only anonymous singer-songwriter, emerged on the scene in the last 24 months with a series of songs that have garnered over 23 million streams on Spotify and 19 million streams on YouTube. Once again, Lake has used his music to create powerful messages to help listeners all around the world find comfort and seek optimism. In his lead single "Sweet Sour Minds" Lake tapped into to his growing fan base and promised to write the song about whatever they decide. The process, which Lake documented on his YouTube channel, led to his writing of "Sweet Sour Minds." Lake reveals the idea that 'We can give anything power by loving it, and if that thing turns on us, it can destroy our spirit. But in the end, after it all settles down, we remain optimistic, somehow it's fine."

The song Crowds is an ode to Lake's favorite collaborator, Charley Drayton, whose unequaled drum beats make the song at once a vehicle for Lake's sometimes mysterious lyrics, as well as a fast-paced anthem that protests against the unfair use of power. Lake comments that "Charley's drums sound different. There is a magic there. I'm so glad he's finished touring with Bob Dylan. I need Charley back."

Perhaps the most unusual element of Lake's latest EP is the song "Comfort's Cross" which seems to contradict Lake's genre of electro pop. In this recent release, Comforts Cross reminds the listener of Lake's premise that music no longer has any genres. The song, a classic ballad that Lake originally wrote as a poem in response to the loss of a loved one and the grieving thereafter, is a naked and visceral emotional response that is led by his voice, and is supported by minimal background music.

Artist Biography:

Peter Lake is a Canadian born, New York City based singer-songwriter who revels in anonymity. In an age where privacy is rare, Peter is convinced that his ability to create music is protected by his anonymity, and by working with unconventional partners in an attempt to avoid the constraints of traditional record deals, which often consider recorded music as a means to promote tours. Peter is the first of a kind: an artist who will only do live concerts via a web-based platform, thereby freeing him to focus exclusively on writing and recording new, original music that crosses all genres. In the process, Peter has assembled one of the largest singer-songwriter catalogues in the industry. His musical influences include Neil Young, Max Martin, David Bowie, Motown, and Drake. It's no surprise that his songs are hard to place, often flying between (and combining) House beats, crunchy guitar riffs and "traditional chants and natural sounds." Lake considers his work as that of starting an avalanche: you don't know which snowflake starts the avalanche, "my job is to make it snow." Through his consistent work over the next decade Lake plans to gradually displace Max Martin as the greatest songwriter who has ever lived.
