The Pack registry is a server-side application that stores and serves packs to its clients. Packs from a pack registry are retrieved and presented as options during the creation of a cluster profile. Palette supports the configuration of multiple registries.
The default pack registry is Spectro Cloud's public pack registry. It consists of several packs that make it simple for a user to quickly create a cluster profile and launch a Kubernetes cluster with their choice of integrations. Spectro Cloud maintains all packs in the default pack registry, this includes taking care of upgrades in the pack registry whenever required.
Users can set up a custom pack registry using a Docker image provided by Spectro Cloud to upload and maintain custom packs. Spectro Cloud provides a CLI tool to interact with and manage pack content in the pack registry. Custom registries offer a mechanism of extending the capabilities of a platform by defining additional integrations.
Palette Dev Engine supports the following types of custom registries:
