Lens eliminates the Kubernetes complexity that has hindered mainstream developer adoption since its inception. The tool unlocks situational awareness and enables users to easily manage, develop, debug, monitor, and troubleshoot their workloads across multiple clusters in real time. It supports any certified Kubernetes distribution on any infrastructure, providing freedom of choice for hundreds of enterprises around the world. Lens is a standalone desktop application and works with MacOS, Windows, and Linux operating systems.
