Inspiré par les listes “Awesome”, j’ai décidé de créer cette page regroupant les outils à connaitre dans l’usage d’une technologie (ex: Kubernetes).

Merci à Jeremy qui a contribué à cette liste.





  • Kubespray - Deploy a Production Ready Kubernetes Cluster
  • Rancher - Complete container management platform
  • K3S-Ansible - Build a Kubernetes cluster using K3s via Ansible
  • kOps - The easiest way to get a production grade Kubernetes cluster up and running.

Kubernetes Dedicated OS

  • K3OS - k3OS is purpose-built to simplify Kubernetes operations in low-resource computing environments. Installs fast. Boots faster. Managed through Kubernetes.
  • Talos - Talos Linux is Linux designed for Kubernetes – secure, immutable, and minimal.


  • NGINX - Ingress-NGINX Controller for Kubernetes
  • HaProxy - HAProxy Enterprise Kubernetes Ingress Controller is built to supercharge your Kubernetes environment by adding advanced TCP and HTTP routing.
  • Traefik - Traefik is an open-source Edge Router that makes publishing your services a fun and easy experience.
  • Cilium - Cilium is an open source, cloud native solution for providing, securing, and observing network connectivity between workloads, fueled by the revolutionary Kernel technology eBPF.
  • Istio - Simplify observability, traffic management, security, and policy with the leading service mesh.


  • Cilium - Cilium is a networking, observability, and security solution with an eBPF-based dataplane. It provides a simple flat Layer 3 network with the ability to span multiple clusters in either a native routing or overlay mode
  • Calico - Calico is a widely adopted, battle-tested open source networking and network security solution for Kubernetes, virtual machines, and bare-metal workloads. Calico provides two major services for Cloud Native applications
  • Flannel - Flannel is a simple and easy way to configure a layer 3 network fabric designed for Kubernetes.

Load Balancers

  • KubeVIP - Kubernetes Control Plane Virtual IP and Load-Balancer
  • MetalLB - A network load-balancer implementation for Kubernetes using standard routing protocols
  • PureLB - DualStack Service LoadBalancer controller that uses standard Linux networking and routing protocols.


  • Harbor - Harbor is an open source trusted cloud native registry project that stores, signs, and scans content
  • HelmFile - Declaratively deploy your Kubernetes manifests, Kustomize configs, and Charts as Helm releases


  • Tekton - A cloud-native Pipeline resource.
  • FluxCD - Open and extensible continuous delivery solution for Kubernetes. Powered by GitOps Toolkit.
  • ArgoCD - Declarative Continuous Deployment for Kubernetes
  • Kaniko - kaniko is a tool to build container images from a Dockerfile, inside a container or Kubernetes cluster.


  • Flagger - Progressive Delivery Operator for Kubernetes
  • KubeWatch - Watch k8s events and trigger Handlers
  • Kured - Kured (KUbernetes REboot Daemon) is a Kubernetes daemonset that performs safe automatic node reboots when the need to do so is indicated by the package management system of the underlying OS.
  • Nova - Validation of best practices in your Kubernetes clusters
  • Kuik - kuik is a container image caching system for Kubernetes
  • vCluster - vCluster - Create fully functional virtual Kubernetes clusters - Each vcluster runs inside a namespace of the underlying k8s cluster. It’s cheaper than creating separate full-blown clusters and it offers better multi-tenancy and isolation than regular namespaces.
  • Logging operator - The Logging operator solves your logging-related problems in Kubernetes environments by automating the deployment and configuration of a Kubernetes logging pipeline.
  • ForeCastle - Forecastle is a control panel which dynamically discovers and provides a launchpad to access applications deployed on Kubernetes
  • KwoK - Kubernetes WithOut Kubelet - Simulates thousands of Nodes and Clusters.


  • ExternalDNS - Configure external DNS servers (AWS Route53, Google CloudDNS and others) for Kubernetes Ingresses and Services
  • Cert-Manager - Automatically provision and manage TLS certificates in Kubernetes


  • Vault - Vault secures, stores, and tightly controls access to tokens, passwords, certificates, API keys, and other secrets critical in modern computing.
  • Sops - Simple and flexible tool for managing secrets
  • Sealed Secrets - A Kubernetes controller and tool for one-way encrypted Secrets
  • External Secrets - External Secrets Operator reads information from a third-party service like AWS Secrets Manager and automatically injects the values as Kubernetes Secrets.


  • Longhorn - Cloud-Native distributed storage built on and for Kubernetes
  • Rook - Production ready management for File, Block and Object Storage
  • Minio - MinIO is a High Performance Object Storage released under GNU Affero General Public License v3.0. It is API compatible with Amazon S3 cloud storage service


  • Kubeshark - Real-time Kubernetes protocol-level visibility, capturing and monitoring all traffic going in, out and across containers, pods, namespaces, nodes and clusters.
  • KubeVPN - KubeVPN is Cloud Native Dev Environment, connect to kubernetes cluster network.


  • Karpenter - Karpenter is a Kubernetes Node Autoscaler built for flexibility, performance, and simplicity.
  • Keda - KEDA is a Kubernetes-based Event Driven Autoscaling component. It provides event driven scale for any container running in Kubernetes


  • krr - Prometheus-based Kubernetes Resource Recommendations


  • Kyverno - Kubernetes Native Policy Management
  • Open Policy Agent - Open Policy Agent (OPA) is an open source, general-purpose policy engine.


  • Krew - Krew is the plugin manager for kubectl command-line tool.
  • Ketall - Like kubectl get all, but get really all resources.
  • kubectx - Faster way to switch between clusters and namespaces in kubectl

Service Mesh

  • Istio - Simplify observability, traffic management, security, and policy with the leading service mesh.
  • Linkerd - Linkerd is a service mesh for Kubernetes and other frameworks, giving you observability, reliability, and security without requiring any changes to your application code.
  • Consul - Consul is a service networking solution to connect and secure services across any runtime platform and public or private cloud.
  • Maesh - Maesh is a Simpler Service Mesh using Traefik.
  • SubMariner - Submariner is a network plugin that connects multiple Kubernetes clusters, enabling seamless multi-cluster networking.
