Build control planes without needing to write code. Crossplane has a highly extensible backend that enables you to orchestrate applications and infrastructure no matter where they run, and a highly configurable frontend that lets you define the declarative API it offers.
Upbound built Crossplane to help organizations build their platforms like the cloud vendors build theirs—with control planes. Crossplane is an open source, CNCF project built on the foundation of Kubernetes to orchestrate anything. Encapsulate policies, permissions, and other guardrails behind a custom API line to enable your customers to self-service without needing to become an infrastructure expert.
Crossplane is designed from the ground up with extension in mind. From Providers that extend Crossplane to orchestrate new kinds of applications and infrastructure, to Configurations that extend Crossplane to expose new APIs, our community will help you find what you need to build your ideal control plane. Interested in building your own extensions?
Most platforms require that you buy into their opinionated API concepts. With Crossplane you can build a platform around your own opinions. We know the best control planes are tailored to the task at hand so we designed Crossplane as a framework that puts you in control. Use Crossplane to design a control plane that exposes declarative APIs tailored to your unique orchestration needs.
