Kubernetes is a leading container orchestration software, which was originally created by Google, but available for every company today. Kubernetes can help you managing containers at scale, solving tasks like scalability, high availability, fail tolerance, rolling update and unified management of dozen of applications.
Automatic recovering after a system failure
In the real world, any component of a service, including hardware servers and VMs may fail. Kubernetes is designed to handle such situations and performs automatic failover of your application in case of any outages.
Perfect fit for cloud-native applications
Microservice approach doesn’t only mean running your application inside containers. Kubernetes provides a complete infrastructure to run your cloud-native applications, including service discovery, load balancing, DNS, centralized logging and monitoring.
Kubernetes provides a modern approach to application development, deployment and delivery. You can also install hundreds of ready-to-use clustered applications including databases, application servers, message queues, etc.
Kubernetes on Hidora
Hidora runs Kubernetes nodes not as VMs, but as system containers. It means that you don’t need to pay for the whole unutilized node, but only for consumed resources.
1-click install of Kubernetes cluster
Although Kubernetes is a complex software, Hidora fully automates its setup either for simple or multi-master configurations.
Kubernetes running on Hidora uses WeaveNet network plugin that supports fully encrypted communication.
Pre-installed ingress controller
We pre-install Traefik ingress controller to provide you proper DNS-based request routing. You can integrate it with custom and Let’s Encrypt-based SSL certificates.
Integration with Helm package manager
We pre-install Helm in every cluster, so you can fully leverage Kubernetes service catalogues powered by Bitnami and other vendors. Helm is also a good tool to implement modern CI/CI processes.
Pre-installed Kubernetes dashboard
To make your experience easier, we pre-install Kubernetes dashboard that simplifies management process. You can also use kubectl for advanced operations.
We host your Kubernetes clusters in secure Tier-IV datacenters located in Switzerland. We also provide an option to install Kubernetes on premise.
