Solution-Soft Launches Time Machine® Container for Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)

SANTA CLARA, CA, January 30, 2023, SolutionSoft Systems Inc., a leading provider of Virtual Clock and Time Shift Testing solutions, is pleased to announce the release of the Time Machine Container Solution for Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE). This innovative solution enables enterprises to quickly and efficiently incorporate time travel capabilities into their containerized environments, revolutionizing application testing and deployment processes.

Time Machine Containers Solution for GKE offers a powerful and efficient way to conduct temporal testing of applications while significantly reducing resource consumption and costs. By leveraging Time Machine, organizations can ensure the successful completion of large-scale software projects within budget and on time.

Key Features and Benefits of Time Machine for Containers for GKE Include:

  • Simplified Integration: The non-intrusive nature of Time Machine for Containers eliminates the need to modify container images. This hassle-free integration saves valuable time and effort for developers and administrators.
  • One Virtual Clock per Namespace: Time traveling multiple containers within a namespace is effortless with Time Machine for Containers. By using a single virtual clock, multiple containers within the same namespace can be synchronized, streamlining testing and deployment processes.
  • Automatic License Provisioning: Time Machine for Containers seamlessly retrieves licenses from the Floating License Server's pool, eliminating the need for manual key management. This feature is particularly beneficial in dynamic environments where pods scale based on demand.
  • Simultaneous Time Traveling of Targets from Multiple Namespaces and Legacy Applications: By using Sync Server and the concept of Sync Groups, Time Machine for Containers enables simultaneous time travel of multiple namespaces within the GKE cluster, allowing coordinated testing and deployment activities. Automation of time-shift testing can also be achieved.
  • Unified Management Console: The solution offers a comprehensive management console that allows easy monitoring and control of virtual clocks for Time Machine for Containers, Sync Server, and Floating License Server. This centralized approach simplifies administration and enhances overall efficiency.

    "We are thrilled to introduce Time Machine Containers Solution for GKE, addressing the evolving needs of the Kubernetes community," said Paul Wang, Chief Technology Officer at Solution-Soft. "This solution empowers organizations to unlock the full potential of their containerized environments by providing seamless time travel capabilities, without disrupting existing container images. Time Machine for Containers is a game-changer for application testing and deployment."
