KubeVault works seamlessly with KubeDB managed DBs, CRDs like SecretAccessRequest, SecretRoleBinding etc. to grant, revoke, audit user privileges convenient.
$ helm repo add appscode https://charts.appscode.com/stable/ $ helm repo update $ helm install kubevault appscode/kubevault \ --version v2022.09.22 \ --namespace kubevault --create-namespace \ --set-file global.license=/path/to/the/license.txt
A SecretAccessRequest is a Kubernetes CustomResourceDefinition (CRD) which allows a user to request a Vault server for credentials in a Kubernetes native way. A SecretAccessRequest can be created under various roles that can be enabled in a SecretEngine like AWSRole, GCPRole, ElasticsearchRole, MongoDBRole, etc. This is a more human friendly way to manage DB privileges. KubeVault operator lets you manage your DB user privileges with dynamic secrets rather than hard-coded credentials using SecretAccessRequest. This means that services that need to access a database no longer need to hardcode credentials. They can simply request them from Vault. Thus granting, revoking and monitoring user privileges is extremely easy with KubeVault.
A SecretRoleBinding is a Kubernetes CustomResourceDefinition (CRD) which allows a user to bind a set of roles to a set of users. Using the SecretRoleBinding it’s possible to bind various roles like AWSRole, GCPRole, ElasticsearchRole, MongoDBRole, etc. to Kubernetes ServiceAccounts. This way is more machine friendly and convenient for running your application with specific permissions. Injecting Vault Secrets into Kubernetes resources requires specific permissions & using SecretRoleBinding it’s very easy to bind a set of policies to a set of Kubernetes Service Accounts.

InterSystems was delighted to engage with AppsCode in the delicate, yet fundamental task of supporting durable, non-ephemeral workloads with Kubernetes. We needed the best-prepared, most-proficient database operator consulting in the industry. Given AppsCode's pedigree of database building operators, the decision was easy. No time was wasted and all objectives reached in an amazingly short period of time. I would recommend AppsCode consulting for any Kubernetes related work.
Voyager made it simple and efficient for us to protect and initiate our bare metal Kubernetes workload. Its underlying technology and extensive L4 support along with seamless SSL integration is what made us choose Voyager over others. Voyager team is also very responsive when it comes to support. Great product!
Voyager is the easiest way to use the fast and reliable HAProxy as our ingress controller. At PriceHubble, it is the corner-stone of our blue/green deployments.
I work with a few Kubernetes clusters and we use Voyager as our preferred ingress controller. We really like the ease of configuration. Documentation is pretty good. Also the use of HaProxy is important for us because it works really well with both L4 and L7 load balancing. One of our TCP services, Wayk Now, is able to withstand thousands of persistent connections very smoothly at the same time.
We really like using Voyager. Its straightforward and well-documented config and SSL (especially Let's Encrypt) has made our migration of services to Kubernetes a breeze. Each major version has been a very welcome update!
