Konductor provides a human workspace for DevOps dependency & control.


Dependencies & prerequisites quickly become complex as the DevOps toolchain grows. Additional complexity stems from maturity as dependency version control comes into play. This common expamsion results in frequent & high cycle consumption troubleshooting & support engagement as well as rapid tribal knowledge dependence, and or large and hard to maintain documentation efforts which quickly become dated as the product lifecycle outpaces documentation team bandwidth.


Konductor is an intentionally designed ‘multi purpose container’ antipattern. Optimally containers most typically should build on the philosophy of ‘one process per container’. Per this standard, Konductor offers ‘one human process per container’ and provides the dependencies required for human task accomplishment.


Konductor is a SSH & TMUX enabled UBI8 based Infrastructure As Code (IaC) development & deployment sandbox which includes multiple cloud provider tools & devops deployment utilities. Konductor is a core compoment of the CloudCtl bastion Podman container Pod, and is intended for use in both typical & restricted or airgap network environments.
