Konveyor Crane

Rehost Applications Between Kubernetes Clusters

With the open source tool Crane, you can move container-based workloads between clusters of different Kubernetes distributions at scale while keeping state, removing environment-specific configuration, and automating application deployments.

Migrate Between different Kubernetes distributions

Crane can help you update your Kubernetes manifest for your latest distribution and version.

Migrate to an automated deployment model

Export existing apps to Git, and automate your deployments using continuous delivery

Migrate at scale

Execute large migrations or cluster evacuations in a fully automated manner.

Why Crane

Crane is the product of our team distilling several years of experience performing large-scale production Kubernetes migrations. These operations are large, complex, error-prone, and usually must be peformed under a limited window of time. Because of that challenge, its paramount that a migration tool be designed with transparency and ease-of-diagnostics in mind.
