Your Happy-Go-Lucky Container Orchestration Service Hosted in Germany
Sail the Seas of Automation with More Ease
Our Managed Kubernetes service helps you to orchestrate your container workload. With Kubernetes (K8s) you automate the deployment, scaling, and management of your containerized applications. While we take care of running and operating your Kubernetes cluster, you benefit from all the features Managed Kubernetes has to offer without having to worry about availability and performance of the underlying infrastructure.
Deal with all kinds of jobs: deployment of containerized applications, CI/CD pipelines or batch processing. Kubernetes is the state-of-the-art tool to lead your business into the modern time of software development and IT operations.
Build, deploy and scale your applications with trust.

Cluster in Minutes
Define your cluster status, set the number of nodes, download your kubeconfig and start using kubectl: in just a few steps, your Kubernetes cluster is ready. We take care of its high availability, updates, backups and a stable underlying cloud infrastructure.
Managed Control Plane
The control plane is the brain of the cluster that takes the action and enforces your desired state. You can decide between a standalone or a high available control plane. We monitor and operate it – 24/7.
There are objects for any kind of resources – pods, services, volumes, and many more. Abstraction leads to more consistency and reliability in your infrastructure and a simpler, more predictable deployment process.
CI/CD done rapidly
Run your CI/CD workloads on top of Kubernetes for faster deployments and greater independence. K8s saves a lot of manual steps. It covers many of the tasks itself and is open to other tools with standardized APIs. There are plenty of integrations like GitLab Runners or the GitLab AutoDevOps Feature.
Persistent Volume Claims
Managing data within containers can be tricky. In theory there is only stateless workload for your pods, for everything else we support persistent volume claims. Store your data, e.g. for the operation of databases, beyond the lifecycle of containers.
Meeting today’s challenges in design, creativity and science, the new GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) combine professional graphics with processing power and AI (Artificial Intelligence) acceleration. Whether 3D rendering, machine learning or AI: process large or complex amount of data in no time with the NVIDIA A10 graphics card!
Horizontal Scaling and Autoscaling
Scale your application with a simple command or use the Kubernetes web interface. Depending on CPU usage or other metrics, new containers can be started automatically. Autoscaling detects when you actually run out of space in your cluster and starts new VMs, which collapse again when you no longer need them. Saves nerves, resources and money.
Load Balancer and Service Discovery
Leverage from our Load Balancer as a Service for scaling and high availability. Your applications do not have to be adapted to a different service discovery mechanism. The load balancing and DNS management take place automatically!
Every Managed Kubernetes cluster comes with credentials for our own S3-compatible storage. Your data is replicated and distributed across two ISO 27001-certified data centers located in Nuremberg, Germany.
Open Standards and APIs
We believe in Open Source and Open Standards. All Kubernetes clusters are fully compatible to the upstream project, as well as the underlying infrastructure based on OpenStack. If you pursue a multi cloud strategy, we’re happy to be a part of it!
Fedora CoreOS Updates
Fedora CoreOS is used as the operating system for many Kubernetes clusters. It specializes in containers and scores particularly well with simple, automatic updates. It doesn’t update package by package but creates a new, updated image of the system and finalizes the update with a reboot. Choose between different update mechanisms: immediate, periodic and lock-based.
The restart of failed containers and the distribution of the workload to healthy containers is managed automatically by Kubernetes. In addition, the functionality of the applications can be checked by individual health checks.
”The possibilities that Kubernetes offers are fantastic! From simple deployments to highly complex High Available Setups: It’s all possible! With NWS Kubernetes, a highly available cluster can be up and running in minutes.”
– Marc Zimmermann
Our Services. For Your Success.
Easy Start & Integration
In just a few steps, your new Kubernetes cluster is ready. All clusters are fully compatible to the upstream project, as well as the underlying infrastructure based on OpenStack, and many other tools.
Your Kubernetes runs on a highly available architecture. Our triple point of failure situation navigates your workload through all storms. K8s itself automatically restarts failed containers or distributes the load to healthy ones.
For sure: Data security and privacy is a must! NETWAYS Managed Kubernetes is hosted in Nuremberg, Germany. Rely on GDPR compliance and know your data is safe in our two ISO-27001 certified data centers.
Premium Managed Services
Direct and without detours: With us you’ll never end up in the waiting loop of a service hotline! Talk to us on site and in person, or via chat, ticket, or phone. We are happy to support you and solve your problems – anytime!
Scalability on Demand
Grown and growing projects need flexible resources. The NETWAYS Managed Kubernetes is made for scale-out. Autoscaling starts and closes VMs in accordance with your needs – guaranteeing the best fit and cost-efficiency you can get!
Fair Partnership & Pricing
We value fairness and transparency. No licenses, no vendor lock-in, hourly billing, transparent breakdown. Made for consciously chosen reliable partnerships and communication at eye-level.
Hosting apps designed in a micro-service architectural approach is the most classical scenario to Managed Kubernetes. The eco-system is full of ideas and best practices how to deal with this kind of software architectures. Service-mesh, autoscaling, selfhealing and rolling upgrades are just a bunch of many features that can make your Dev and Ops life easier.
Migrate existing Applications
Migrate your existing applications to containers and deploy them on top of Kubernetes. Maybe you are right if you think this is kind of over-engineered for simple apps, but the complexity is handled by us. You benefit from the comfortable, abstract way of deploying your apps with Managed Kubernetes. And maybe we are right when we say you will love it.
Managed Kubernetes also brings noticeable benefits to Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment/Delivery methodology. A consequential complement for the other shown use cases. To get the best out of Kubernetes and your application your development und deployment process should be automated as much as possible. Popular tools like GitLab, Jenkins, Travis-CI or Team-City have good integrations with Kubernetes.
Running compute intensive and reoccurring jobs on top of Kubernetes is another common use case. Managed Kuberentes helps to spread and distribute computing intensive jobs across the cluster. Also less intensive batch jobs can be run besides other production load to fill up gaps of unused compute resources. Use your resources more effectively. You can even spin up a cluster just for a short period of time, run and compute your batch jobs and delete the whole cluster again. You will be charged only for this period of time using those resources.

*A minimal Kubernetes cluster setup consists of a control plane and at least one worker node (2x virtual machines + 2x floating IPs). The pricing for Kubernetes clusters is based on actual usage. Additional costs for storage (S3 or persistent volume claims), load balancers and traffic may arise dynamically if used.
