At Plural, we strive to make Kubernetes deployments as seamless as possible. With this goal in mind, we have dedicated our efforts to developing a range of features that enhance the ease of using Plural.

  • For a comprehensive resource to manage your K8s setup, we’ve updated our Plural Console with an in-app option to access our Plural AI command.
  • For better control over your app’s data and more flexibility with your configurations, we’ve added a feature to backup and restore databases associated with your applications.

Here's everything you need to know about our latest product features:

Plural AI

Plural AI is now available inside Plural Console.

Previously only available in our CLI, Plural AI is our built-in command to leverage ChatGPT to reduce the learning curve and streamline Kubernetes debugging with Plural.

We’ve updated our Command+K palette in the Plural Console with commands to open Plural AI and search our documentation in a single place. You can also directly contact our support team while inside the Console via the Command+K palette for further assistance.

Database Restoring

While managing complex setups, you may need to dismantle an application with a corresponding database and reinstall it on a new cluster. Until now, reinstalling an application with Plural meant losing all of its historical data. To ensure your data is protected, we built our Database Restoration feature.

The Database Restoration feature is useful for creating hot standbys or recreating a cluster entirely if you want to change the underlying storage class of the database. Essentially, you can “turn off” an application’s database and then “turn it back on again” once it’s reinstalled.

Postgres will perform the backup within the Postgres pod itself, so if you want to track its status you can look at the pods with:

kubectl logs DB-NAME-0 -n NAMESPACE # inject the name of the Postgres DB and the namespace it was applied to

To try out the latest Plural AI update, simply login to the Plural Console and use the Command+K palette to access our AI assistant. Restoring databases is a premium feature available in Plural Pro. For a limited time, we're offering a 30-day free trial of Pro to all users.

If you have any questions about these features or any additional functionalities you'd like to see, please feel free to reach out to me or any other member of the Plural team.
