PMK is a CNCF certified Kubernetes offering that provides a fully ‘managed’ Kubernetes experience.
PMK’s remote management installs, operates and maintains your Kubernetes control plane and worker nodes, so you don’t have to.
This includes auto-security patching your clusters when vulnerabilities are issued, supporting multiple k8s versions for your clusters, and performing rolling upgrades on demand.
PMK lets you create a cluster on-premises in under 5 minutes with advance on-premise and edge capabilities:
PMK also enables cluster deployment on public clouds:
PMK ships with a built-in CLI – pf9ctl – to get you up and running with BareOS clusters fast.
Create a single node cluster with a single command, create multi-master clusters just as easily, using pf9ctl.
PMK provides fully managed offering of open source Calico networking solution – handling install, config, upgrade and troubleshooting of Calico.
PMK also provides full REST APIs for Calico, enabling Admins to leverage all functionality of calico.
For BareOS clusters, PMK ships with built-in MetalLB load balancer, to enable out of box service load balancing.
Once setup, MetalLB can be configured with one or more network CIDR ranges that will be used when deploying a new service load balancer instance.
PMK deploys each cluster with an instance of Prometheus & Grafana by default, pre-configured with the right metrics for cluster management.
PMK deploys each cluster with an instance of Fluentd by default, enabling aggregation and forwarding of cluster and node level logs to your specific logging endpoint
PMK ships out of box with SSO and multi-tenancy features enabled.
All PMK features are accessible via the UI as well as fully documented REST APIs.
REST APIs let you automate cluster creation and management end to end and integrate it with your CI/CD process.
