Advantages of Keptn


Best practices out-of-the box

Keptn supports best practices and the latest delivery platforms utilized by modern applications while ensuring that you can easily get started in minutes.

Future-proof and pluggable

One-off implementations often lead to eventual maintenance problems. Keptn provides a core framework that you can use to build cohesive, standardized cloud native-fabric for your organization. Keptn also enables you to replace tools as you wish and avoid vendor lock-in.

Smart and flexible

Concepts like GitOps, self-healing, and unbreakable deployments can be implemented in different ways, varying from one organization to the next. While keptn has built-in intelligence that assists you in taking advantage of these industry best practices, it’s flexible enough to address your specific needs.
