kcp Documentation


kcp is a Kubernetes-like control plane focusing on:

  • A control plane for many independent, isolated “clusters” known as workspaces
  • Enabling API service providers to offer APIs centrally using multi-tenant operators
  • Easy API consumption for users in their workspaces
  • Advanced deployment strategies for scenarios such as affinity/anti-affinity, geographic replication, cross-cloud replication, etc.

kcp can be a building block for SaaS service providers who need a massively multi-tenant platform to offer services to a large number of fully isolated tenants using Kubernetes-native APIs. The goal is to be useful to cloud providers as well as enterprise IT departments offering APIs within their company.
