What is Service Management in Kyma?

Service Management in Kyma uses service operators. A service operator is a piece of software that provides a set of all necessary resources (for example, CustomResourceDefinitions and controllers) needed to provision third-party services in your Kubernetes cluster. With service operators, you can manage your Kubernetes-native applications without worrying about technicalities behind operational activities in your cluster, such as installation, configuration, or modification.

Many third-party service providers offer their own operators to help you provision their services. These are the examples of operators that you can install on your Kyma cluster:

You can find the base of all service operators in the OperatorHub.io.
