Paving the path to Open Source

Hello Kubernetes enthusiasts and our amazing beta testers - the pioneers who were our first installers!

We're here with some updates regarding our Kubernetes Health Check Operator that took its first steps in the public space just couple of days ago.

We’ve been receiving a lot of queries about when we’ll be open sourcing our product. It’s heartening to see such interest, and we truly believe in the potential of open source to foster innovation and collaboration. We're excited by the prospect, but we want to share a few reasons why we're holding off, for now.

Quality Assurance

We're firm believers in quality over quantity. The product is still in its early stages and, as any parent would say, there's much room for it to grow and improve. We want to ensure that we present you with code that is mature and sturdy enough to be forked and reused in myriad ways. Our team is rigorously working to make sure that the software is resilient, reliable, and robust before we share it with the world.

Support Capacity

The open source software (OSS) community is vibrant, dynamic, and fast-paced. To play an active role in it, companies need to have the resources to provide support, respond to queries, fix bugs, and be open to contributions. At present, our bandwidth is spread thin over perfecting the product, and we don't want to promise something that we can't fully deliver. Rather than rushing to join the OSS community, we are focusing on building up our capacity to offer the level of support that you deserve.

Wrapping up: Good things take time

We understand that these are exciting times and we all want to jump straight into the deep end. Yet, the responsibility of ensuring that our product matches up to your expectations and serves as a useful tool in your arsenal is one we take very seriously. We want to get it right, and that takes time.

We are immensely grateful for your understanding and patience. Rest assured, we are as eager as you are to see our Kubernetes Health Check Operator thrive in the open source community. And we promise, the wait will be worth it.

Stay tuned for more updates, and keep those lines of feedback coming. You are the ones who inspire us to do better, to be better.

Thank you for your continuous support and belief in us.

The best is yet to come,
