Using Kubernetes unlocks a world of potential. However, the implementation and maintenance, management, constant updates, and general monitoring are task-intensive and complex.
In order to get the best out of Kubernetes, it will need its own management.
Managed Kubernetes brings K8s to life
Managed Kubernetes facilitates the fully automated setup of Kubernetes clusters. Several clusters can also be quickly and easily deployed, for example to set up staging environments, and then deleted again if necessary.
Kubernetes also significantly simplifies and carefully supports the automation of CI/CD pipelines in terms of testing and deployment.
Our managed solution offers maximum transparency and control of the K8S cluster. This includes:
Automatic updates of security fixes
Versioning & Upgrade Management
Version and upgrade provisioning
Highly-available and geo-redundant control plane
Admin API Access
Full cluster admin-level access to Kubernetes API
Fully integrated persistent storage
Using the default CSI-based IONOS StorageClass, running stateful applications is as easy as running a simple stateless web server. Persistent volumes (PV) are automatically created through a persistent volume claim (PVC) and attached to your worker nodes running your pods.
Designed to be fault tolerant, your volume will even be migrated in case of a node failure. Based on the double redundant storage architecture of our Enterprise Cloud, persistent storage is not a source of frustration with a IONOS Managed Kubernetes cluster.
IONOS Managed Kubernetes clusters support multiple node pools spread across numerous data centres. Geo-redundant distribution of pods and service create a highly fault-tolerant architecture and guarantees the highest availability of a cluster.
Since the control plane is also designed to be highly available and geo-redundant, a cluster survives — even in the event of total data centre failure.
Visual cluster and node pool management
Not only can Managed Kubernetes be conveniently administered through the Kubernetes API, it is also an integral part of the IONOS Enterprise Cloud Data Center Designer (DCD). Using the DCD you can create clusters, create node pools or delete them directly – all from the graphical user interface of the IONOS Enterprise Cloud.
Integration within the DCD complements your Kubernetes deployment options in the IONOS Enterprise Cloud environment and makes it possible to get an overview of the existing Managed Kubernetes Clusters at any time.

Easy integration of cloud-native solutions
Managed Kubernetes is a complete (i.e. as standard as possible) “vanilla” Kubernetes as defined by the CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation). K8s is most effective when it can interact with a wide range of complementary services (such as istio, linkerd, Prometheus, Traefik, Envoy, fleuntd, rook, and many others) that are connected via APIs. Enterprise Cloud users can install the additional services of their choice themselves.
Free up valuable resources for your DevOps team
Managed Kubernetes is a free service. This includes deployment, admin, security and updating of the geo-redundant Kubernetes control plane you design, as well as the maintenance and updates of the system environment of the worker nodes.
You purchase only the infrastructure you need, such as number of cores, RAM, storage and traffic, according to your required usage. The control plane is executed on its own machine instances. There are no costs for the master node.
