The simple way to manage container workloads

Using Kubernetes unlocks a world of potential. However, the implementation and maintenance, management, constant updates, and general monitoring are task-intensive and complex.
In order to get the best out of Kubernetes, it will need its own management.

Managed Kubernetes brings K8s to life

Managed Kubernetes facilitates the fully automated setup of Kubernetes clusters. Several clusters can also be quickly and easily deployed, for example to set up staging environments, and then deleted again if necessary.
Kubernetes also significantly simplifies and carefully supports the automation of CI/CD pipelines in terms of testing and deployment.
Our managed solution offers maximum transparency and control of the K8S cluster. This includes:

Security Fixes

Automatic updates of security fixes

Versioning & Upgrade Management

Version and upgrade provisioning

Top Availability

Highly-available and geo-redundant control plane

Admin API Access

Full cluster admin-level access to Kubernetes API

Fully integrated persistent storage

Using the default CSI-based 1&1 IONOS StorageClass, running stateful applications is as easy as running a simple stateless web server. Persistent volumes (PV) are automatically created through a persistent volume claim (PVC) and attached to your worker nodes running your pods.
Designed to be fault tolerant, your volume will even be migrated in case of a node failure. Based on the double redundant storage architecture of our Enterprise Cloud, persistent storage is not a source of frustration with a 1&1 IONOS Managed Kubernetes cluster.

High-resilience infrastructure

1&1 IONOS Managed Kubernetes clusters support multiple node pools spread across numerous data centers. Geo-redundant distribution of pods and service create a highly fault-tolerant architecture and guarantees the highest availability of a cluster.
Since the control plane is also designed to be highly available and geo-redundant, a cluster survives — even in the event of total data center failure.

Easy integration of cloud-native solutions

Managed Kubernetes is a complete (i.e. as standard as possible) “vanilla” Kubernetes as defined by the CNCF (Cloud Native Computing Foundation). K8s is most effective when it can interact with a wide range of complementary services (such as istio, linkerd, Prometheus, Traefik, Envoy, fleuntd, rook, and many others) that are connected via APIs. Enterprise Cloud users can install the additional services of their choice themselves.

Provision and deploy K8s clusters in a matter of minutes

Test the Enterprise Cloud Managed Kubernetes platform in the public beta phase now, obligation free!

Quick registration

Create your admin account in just a few simple steps. Secured with 2-factor authentication. By registering, you agree to our Fair-Use-Policy
1&1 IONOS offers Managed Kubernetes as a public beta within German data centers for free. This includes the use of infrastructure such as cores, RAM, and storage. Customers using Managed Kubernetes in data centers outside of Germany are required to pay for the transfer of external network data according to the prices displayed in the corresponding table.

The Fair Use Policy in place for Managed Kubernetes in the Public Beta ensures the availability and quality of service at all times. In the event of exceptionally intensive use with significantly above-average resource consumption, 1&1 IONOS reserves the right to contact the customer in concern in order to agree to Individual Terms of Use. Should such an agreement not be reached, 1&1 IONOS can restrict or prevent further use of Managed Kubernetes in the public beta without further notice.

Simple setup

Read here how to provision and deploy your first containers quickly and easily via Admin API Access.

Ready to go

Once the configuration is finished, you can start operating within a few minutes.

Free public beta

Managed Kubernetes frees up valuable resources meaning your DevOps team will have more time and space to concentrate on more pressing issues.
The 1&1 IONOS Managed Kubernetes public beta is available completely free of charge within our German data centers. Customers who use data centers outside of Germany are charged for traffic.
