Venafi Kubernetes Manifest utility

The Venafi Kubernetes Manifest feature of the Venafi CLI tool is a powerful command-line utility which streamlines the installation of Venafi Kubernetes components in clusters.

It generates a Kubernetes installation manifest which precisely defines the desired state of your deployments, allowing for easy installation, maintenance, and upgrades. It knows about dependencies between components, can discourage installation of components with known issues, and encourages best practices in terms of security and maintainability.

The Venafi Kubernetes Manifest utility supports distributed releases across multiple clusters, making it well-suited for complex multi-cluster and multi-environment deployments.

The Venafi Kubernetes Manifest utility is released in concert with, and installed, as part of the Venafi CLI tool.
