Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform for Edge Environments

Automate operations of thousands of Kubernetes clusters across your chosen edge locations.

How Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform Covers All Your Edge Needs

Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP) is a Kubernetes-based open platform for managing edge infrastructure and containers. It was designed to handle the constraints and scalability of edge computing, which often has resource limitations such as reduced bandwidth or processing power. KKP scales dynamically with your needs so you can start small and grow as needed without any downtime or data loss. You might use it to set up a single node that houses an application then scale out when demand increases. Or you could use it to run many different applications on one physical server simultaneously without having them interfere with each other’s resources.

Global Leaders Work With Kubermatic

Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP) is a container-based platform that seamlessly integrates with your existing VMware vSphere installation, allowing you to leverage edge cases for your manufacturing workloads inside your own facility. KKP`s highly adaptable and resilient architecture ensures the best return on investment for your most innovative projects. With Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform, optimizing product development cycles has never been easier!

Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform supports Kubevirt in two ways, one of them is rather unconventional. We use KubeVirts unique feature set to split machines into smaller virtualized nodes that become worker nodes within the Kubernetes user cluster, so that utilization at the edge can be maximized. It saves a lot of additional management as everything is K8s native and provides state of the art technology. The classic way is running VMs on an edge node to support legacy software is of course possible with our integration and harmonizes your IT and OT infrastructure.

Static BareMetal

Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform creates Kubernetes infrastructure on bare metal, allowing for the simplest configuration and deployment. The integration with existing environments is seamless, as it can be deployed into any environment that has network connectivity to another machine running Kubernetes. So you don’t have to worry about designing your infrastructure around the needs of Kubernetes, you can create it around what’s already there. Even better, all you need is the CLI and kubectl to get things up and running in minutes. Because we’re using bare metal rather than virtualization or containers, you also gain performance benefits due to increased CPU cores availability and RAM capacity per node - not just over provisioned nodes that can’t deliver when it’s most needed at the Edge.

Dynamic BareMetal

Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP) is a Kubernetes-based solution that allows you to orchestrate dynamic bare metal environments with all of the prerequisites for virtual machines, side by side workloads, and dynamic infrastructure allocation. So your business can adopt containers without having to buy new hardware or invest in expensive software licenses. You can make use of existing resources while leveraging the benefits of containerization at the edge.

KKP’s unique architecture allows for optimal allocation of resources. Additionally, the management plane consumes a fraction of compute compared to any other platform. All of this is done with an intuitive UI combined with API access for mass deployment across multiple clusters. The platform provides a fully automated workflow that eliminates manual intervention and ensures high availability at all times. It also includes out-of-the-box support for third party tools such as Terraform, Ansible and Jenkins CI/CD.

Kubermatic Kubernetes Platform (KKP) is the only solution in the market that integrates seamlessly with any ARM infrastructure. KKP on ARM for Edge gives you all of the features and benefits of a high-end datacenter, but in a cost efficient, power saving environment. You can leverage your existing investment by deploying KKP to your edge nodes - where they will still have full access to all enterprise level security, scalability and reliability. And because our platform was built from scratch using microservices architecture, you get an easy way to deploy software updates without downtime or service interruptions.
