The ideal platform for demanding, highly scalable container applications. Managed Kubernetes works with many cloud-native solutions and includes 24/7 expert support.
Master container application orchestration in distributed production environments with IONOS Cloud Managed Kubernetes. You’ll start with a range of integrated tools, plus expert support to ensure you make optimal use of the powerful infrastructure. Peak security and transparency are a given, and you’ll control operations with less admin.
The best part? You’ll only be charged for resources you’ve actually provisioned in the node pools — the control plane and clusters are completely free.
IONOS Cloud Managed Kubernetes features auto-scaling for added stability and availability. Horizontal scaling incorporates additional containers, or releases unneeded resources as required. This ensures consistent performance across loads while simultaneously lowering costs.
Managed Kubernetes is tailored to work in IONOS Cloud virtual data centers. Georedundant distribution guarantees maximum cluster reliability and availability.
The K8s service integrates control functions for container-based applications into the IONOS Cloud ecosystem, providing maximum convenience, security and flexibility for configuring your production environment.
So you don't have to worry about keeping Kubernetes up to date, Managed Kubernetes automatically takes care of updates and security fixes. You choose when the updates are made.
Whatever your experience level, Managed Kubernetes enables you to exploit the full power of container orchestration without the time-consuming admin. Free yourself from continuous monitoring, updates and maintenance routines. And the managed service is free, meaning both more productivity and less of a burden on your resources.
K8s-as-a-Service supports the fully automated setup of Kubernetes clusters on IONOS Cloud virtual servers and prevents performance loss due to over-provisioning. Instead of using pre-packaged instances, you can flexibly configure your worker nodes on high-performance infrastructure.
Adapt all properties to your needs: number of CPU per node, CPU type, RAM per node, storage size per node, storage type and, if needed, the storage performance class. The managed solution from IONOS Cloud provides all the functions needed for trouble-free Kubernetes cluster operation.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions
IONOS, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, the Google Cloud Platform and other cloud providers offer Kubernetes-as-a-Service. However, their aims and approaches sometimes vary considerably. The quality of service and the platform's stability, performance, and active participation within the cloud-native community are all distinguishing factors.
IONOS focuses on managed services that simplify the use of software containers and Kubernetes as an orchestration tool. The IONOS Compute Engine prides itself in particular on its proximity to the end-user. The user's feedback is continuously incorporated into Managed Kubernetes' further development.
A central component of Managed Kubernetes is visual cluster and node pool management. On the one hand, Managed Kubernetes can be managed conveniently via the Kubernetes API, but it is also firmly integrated into IONOS Compute Engine's Data Center Designer (DCD). DCD enables you to create Kubernetes clusters and node pools, or delete them directly from the IONOS Compute Engine graphical user interface. The master node remains geographically redundant, while the customer decides where to set up their node pools.
The DCD integration perfectly rounds off Kubernetes' possible applications in the IONOS Compute Engine environment. It enables a quick overview of the existing Managed Kubernetes clusters at any time – both graphically in the DCD and via a large number of API calls.

IONOS offers Managed Kubernetes as a free service. You only pay for computing and storage resources that the Kubernetes nodes need for containers. Thanks to the transparent pricing structure of IONOS Compute Engine, there are only four price points:
Kubernetes is a great tool. IONOS makes it much simpler to use by taking on time-consuming processes such as updates.
