OLM provides rich update mechanisms to keep Kubernetes native applications up to date automatically.
With OLMs packaging format Operators can express dependencies on the platform and on other Operators.
OLM makes Operators and their services available for cluster users to select and install.
OLM will prevent conflicting Operators owning the same APIs being installed, ensuring cluster stability.
OLM enables Operators to behave like managed service providers through the APIs they expose.
The Operator Lifecycle Manager project is open source, and participation from members of the community is highly valued. If you want to get involved, discuss your experiences with OLM, or have questions, join the Operator Framework forum and visit us on GitHub.
