Kickstart your Kubernetes journey for $1 a month

Updated: Jan 6

Introduction In today's fast-paced digital world, businesses are constantly seeking efficient, scalable, and robust solutions to stay ahead of the technological curve. This is where our Managed Kubernetes Service on Azure steps in – a game-changer if you are aiming to harness the full potential of your cloud-native technologies.

We bundled everything you need to kickstart your Kubernetes journey in Azure into one package. The challenge In the fast-paced world of Kubernetes, there's an issue with the standard clickops deployments: they overlook crucial in-cluster security measures. This oversight, while making initial setup seem simpler, can lead to significant security risks and technical debt later on. Many struggle to secure their clusters after they're up and running, encountering problems that could have been prevented. The answer Addressing these security concerns, our managed Kubernetes service offering is the answer. By implementing all the neccessary network policies within your cluster, we establish a 'least privilege' security environment. But our commitment goes beyond just initial setup. We provide documentation, to guide you in maintaining these security standards. This proactive approach completely mitigates future technical debt related to security practices. With our offering, you're not just receiving a service; you're gaining a long-term partner in maintaining a secure and efficient Kubernetes environment. What else? Beyond security as a default, our managed Kubernetes service offering comes with a collection of core components. We leverage Gitops, using ArgoCD for seamless and reliable deployment management. Furthermore, we bootstrap your clusters with cert-manager for automated certificate management and ingress-nginx for robust HTTP/HTTPS routing. Adding to this versatility, we offer the option to integrate Crossplane, an open-source multicloud control plane. This enables you to manage and deploy infrastructure, including additional Kubernetes clusters, directly from within your existing setup. In addition to these features, we are excited to introduce our in-house developed open source tool, netfetch (available on Github). Netfetch is specificially designed to demystify the creation of network policies within your cluster. This tool is a testament to our commitment to providing comprehensive, user-centric solutions that streamline your Kubernetes journey. On top of this, our solution comes with managed Grafana and Prometheus. The moment your application is deployed, these tools become readily available, offering insights into your applications performance and health. All core components are automatically onboarded, ensuring a hassle-free setup.

On your own, but not on your own. After the successful deployment of your application: you gain complete ownership of the code. Every line, every configuration, every decision going forward is entirely in your hands, granting you the freedom and responsibility to steer your project’s future. Comprehensive documentation, accessible here, will support you on your journey. It's intuitive and thorough, but should you encounter unique challenges or have specific questions, our team and community is here to assist. Join our Discord community here.
