OVHcloud US Announces the Availability of Managed Kubernetes Services

OVHcloud US announced the availability of its managed Kubernetes Service. Kubernetes combined with OVHcloud's Public Cloud service provides the perfect platform on which to build and operate scalable cloud-native applications with on-demand computing and storage resources.

As a managed service, in addition to maintaining the underlying hardware, OVHcloud also manages the Kubernetes software stack, keeping it up-to-date with critical updates associated with bugs and security patches. OVHcloud's Kubernetes also delivers load-balancer and auto-scaling capabilities, giving developers the ability to start small with entry-level instances and then upgrade to more powerful instances when moving to larger-scale production.

"The ability to deploy, manage, and scale consistent and secure-by-default Kubernetes instances on demand defines what it means to be cloud-native. The power of our managed Kubernetes in our Public Cloud environment allows teams to iterate faster, automate more aggressively, and exploit modern application-lifecycle paradigms. With an overwhelming amount of production applications expected to be cloud native within the next 18-24 months, this solution addresses the major challenges developers face in delivering superior software quickly," said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager, OVHcloud US.
