What is Iter8?¶
Iter8 is a metrics-driven experimentation and release engineering platform. Iter8 enables DevOps/MLOps/SRE teams to maximize release velocity and business value of apps while protecting end-user experience.
What is an Iter8 experiment?¶
Iter8 defines a Kubernetes resource called Experiment that facilitates release engineering tasks such as SLO validation, A/B(/n) testing with business metrics, chaos testing, dark launch, canaries, progressive rollouts with advanced traffic engineering, and their hybrids.
Iter8 and Helm¶
While Helm is not a requirement for using Iter8, many Iter8 experiments are templated and packaged in the form of Helm charts for easy reusability.
