Palette provides two different modes for deploying and managing applications. The first mode is Cluster Mode - this mode enables you to create, deploy, and manage Kubernetes clusters and applications. The second mode is App Mode - a mode optimized for a simpler and streamlined developer experience that allows you to only focus on the building, maintenance, testing, deployment, and monitoring of your Kubernetes applications.

You can leverage Spectro Cloud's complimentary managed Kubernetes cluster when using App Mode. The complimentary resources have a limit of 12 vCPU, 16 GiB of memory, and 20 GiB of free storage. Alternatively, you may deploy applications on Kubernetes clusters that belong to your organization and are managed by Palette.

  • App Mode: Deploy and manage applications through Palette.
  • Cluster Mode: Manage Kubernetes clusters and applications through Palette.
