Manage your container workloads

Managed Kubernetes Cluster in Germany

Microservices are increasingly deployed via containers in modern enterprises. Kubernetes (K8s) is the industry standard for orchestrating these containers. Kubernetes makes it easier to deploy, scale, and maintain container applications. Planning and implementing a Kubernetes infrastructure is not trivial and requires a lot of knowledge and experience. We support you with a customized Kubernetes solution in our shared cloud, or your own private cloud.

Highly available cloud applications and maximum security

Cloud applications not only need to be highly available and performant, but also easy to scale and manage, and especially highly secure. Our Managed Kubernetes Clusters offer all of this:

Instead of a purely technical platform, we take over the entire management – down to the level of individual components, such as databases.

Maximum security is ensured by access via redundant K8 VPN gateways, physical separation of the networks by their own VLAN (no “eavesdropping”), triple redundant storage, availability guarantees via SLA and much more.

And for maximum performance, we offer – in addition to K8 autoscaling for optimal resource utilization – no over commitment of resources (“noisy neighbor”), guaranteed CPU performance through physically represented cores and highly available host clusters.
