InfinyOn Cloud updates


New UI

A new version of the InfinyOn Cloud platform UI has been released. We’ve added the capability to view realtime info about your cluster.

Here’s a quick preview

Check out the New UI tutorial for more information.


Cloud connectors

Management of connectors is now exclusive to InfinyOn Cloud. You can create connectors in InfinyOn with the fluvio cloud connector CLI.

Check out the Cloud connectors docs for more info


SmartModule Hub

SmartModule Hub is a new service for offering public SmartModules. This removes the requirement of installing a SmartModule development environment in order to take advantage of SmartModules. You can download SmartModules from the Hub directly to your cluster to use.

For developers, you can use smdk to publish SmartModules to the Hub to share publicly.
