Kubernetes in the DARZ Cloud

Kubernetes is open source software that allows you to custom deploy and manage applications running on containers.

Kubernetes is the obvious choice when it comes to running cloud-native workloads. Cloud Native is a collection of technologies that enable developers to build applications faster, better, and more accessibly. We build your own private Kubernetes cluster in our powerful OpenStack platform.

We provide a fully managed service where we monitor the cluster 24/7 and perform upgrades about twice a year. The upgrades are scheduled in collaboration with the customer and we perform a rolling upgrade node by node with no downtime.

There is an integration between Kubernetes and Openstack that allows customers to manage resources such as persistent storage or load balancers directly in Kubernetes itself.

Since Kubernetes runs on the well-known, high-performance OpenStack platform, we integrate seamlessly with the features provided.
