Microservice Development with Kubernetes

Build complex microservice architectures directly on top of Kubernetes

The more distributed your applications become, the harder it is to stand them up and develop them on your local machine. With Loft, you can move your development environment from your laptop to a remote Kubernetes clusters without having to give up your local code editor or any other local tooling.

Burning Hot Laptops

Modern distributed systems require a lot of computing resources and bring laptops to their limits. Move your dev runtime to the cloud and benefit from infinite scalability and a cool laptop to work with.

Prod-Like Environments
For More Realistic Testing

Validating your code and running full integration tests on your local machine is often hardly possible and may produce vastly different results than in your staging or testing environments.

Provision & Manage
Shared Central Services

If your application needs heavyweight, high-maintenance backing services such as a Kafka cluster or a distributed database, admins can create a central service and make it available for all engineers in their respective dev environments.

Compatible with any cloud-native development tool to streamline your team's dev workflows

Connect Your Local IDE
To Your Cloud-Native Workspace

Most modern cloud-native development tools such as DevSpace provide a two-way sync for files, so that you can keep coding using your local IDE and even set breakpoints in your local IDE but the actual code execution happens inside your cloud-based development environment inside a Kubernetes cluster.

Sleep Mode & Auto-Delete

Loft's advanced inactivity detection monitors when engineers are not working with their namespaces and virtual clusters, so you can define rules for automatically putting pre-production environments to sleep or even configure Loft to automatically delete them after a certain period of inactivity.
