June Product Update
Welcome to the June Product Update at Nucleus! We've got some exciting updates and announcements, so let's get right into it.
Support for Multiple Node Groups
Most teams run different types of workloads and applications which have different resource requirements. Some may have high CPU, low memory requirements while others have lower CPU but high memory requirements. Whether these workloads are standard backend services, machine learning models or background jobs, optimizing the type of machines (read: nodes) is important for performance and managing costs. With that, we're excited to now provide developers with the easiest way to create and manage multiple node groups within a cluster, making it dead-simple to run workloads on the machine types that best fit their requirements.
Smart Node Group Selections
It can be overwhelming trying to figure out which instance types that you need for your Kubernetes nodes. So we've made that much easier with our Smart Node Group Selections. When you select a region, Nucleus will automatically suggest a list of instance types that are available in that region and will give you a good baseline to start with. This is completely editable and customizable making it easy to start with update as your needs change.
Deploy Docker Images from the Nucleus UI
We've now made it dead simple to be able to deploy Docker images directly from the Nucleus UI. You can easily paste in an image URI and we will pull it down and deploy it into the environment you decide. Along with that, you can also set environment variables and make your service public or private. There is a lot more coming here so stay tuned for more updates.
AI-powered Help in the Nucleus Dashboard
One of the best use-cases of AI is to allow users to ask questions in natural language and get back a step by step guide on how to accomplish something. We're big fans of it so we're bringing that to Nucleus. Now, in the Nucleus Dashboard, you can ask a question in natural language to the AI-powered Nucleus help and it will return a guide on how to accomplish that task, links to source documentation and follow up questions that you can ask.
Autodeploys from the Nucleus UI
Now when you create a new service in the Nucleus dashboard, that service automatically gets deployed. That means in just a few seconds you can go from source code to a live service, secured with TLS, auto-scaled automatically and integrated with your favorite tools. That's pretty dang useful.
See you next time folks!
That's all for June! If you want more of a granular look at what we shipped sprint-by-sprint, checkout our changelog . Lots of new things coming down the pipeline for July.
