“Platform9 Managed Kubernetes has greatly simplified our lives and accelerated our development time knowing that we don’t need to worry about ensuring uptime and operating our current infrastructure”

Tomas Rodriguez

Systems Administrator, Cloudera

SaaS Management

Let the SaaS management plane handle 24/7 remote-monitoring for cluster health & auto-alert

As soon as a cluster is created, PMK’s SaaS management plane will auto-monitor it 24/7 for issues, so you don’t have to.

Prometheus & Grafana are automatically set up during your cluster deployment, providing cluster, node and pod metrics in a single view.

You also receive alarms & notifications for critical Kubernetes infrastructure issues

“Taking a maintenance window on our nonstop Kubernetes SaaS offering is a nightmare. With Platform9’s Kubernetes “rolling upgrades”, there is no disruption, no down-time, no maintenance windows anymore”

Ravi Ravichandran

VP Engineering, Cloud platform & Devops, Juniper Networks

‘Managed’ cluster upgrades, security patching & multi-version support

Enjoy the benefits of SaaS ‘managed’ cluster upgrades. Upgrades are monitored remotely and any issues are proactively auto-corrected, or your Ops team is notified of problems related to your physical infrastructure. Access the latest Kubernetes features faster with one-click upgrades to the latest upstream Kubernetes, or stay on a stable version via our multi-version support. Stay secure with automatic security patches when there is a new CVE.
