Frequently Asked Questions
Important questions and answers about our Kubernetes Cloud.
Kubernetes is an open-source platform for automating container-based applications. It was developed by Google and is now a part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Kubernetes can be deployed on a variety of cloud computing platforms, including Google Cloud, AWS, Microsoft Azure, and several others.
The need for Kubernetes arises from the increasing use of containers in developing and deploying applications. Containers are an efficient and consistent way to deploy applications across different environments. Kubernetes makes it easier to manage containers and automate deployment processes. With Kubernetes, developers and IT teams can deploy applications quickly, efficiently, and reliably, regardless of the underlying infrastructure.
Kubernetes can be used in various ways, including deploying applications in the cloud, scaling applications, managing container orchestration, load balancing, monitoring, and recovering applications.
The benefits of Kubernetes in application development are numerous. It facilitates scaling of applications, allocation of resources, and automatic recovery of applications in case of failures. Kubernetes also offers a high degree of flexibility and portability, allowing applications to be deployed seamlessly across different infrastructures. Moreover, it can improve collaboration between developers and IT teams by providing standardized workflows and automated processes.
Overall, Kubernetes can help developers and IT teams develop and deploy faster and more efficient applications that seamlessly function in different environments. It is a powerful platform that enables automation of complex tasks and improves scalability of applications.
Persistent storage is part of our standard offering and allows for the dynamic allocation and release of persistent storage claims.
All storage volumes at Safe Swiss Cloud are provisioned on redundant data storage clusters (SAN), providing the following types of redundancy:
Redundant storage media: if an SSD has a defect, customers will not notice anything and processing will continue as normal. Safe Swiss Cloud will replace the defective storage device in the background without downtime.
Redundant storage node: if a storage node has a defect, customers will not notice anything and processing will continue as normal. Safe Swiss Cloud will replace the defective storage device in the background without downtime.
The use of 100% clustered block storage based on SSDs ensures maximum reliability, uptime and performance.
Customers get access to a WebGUI based on the OKD distribution of Kubernetes which provides a superb dashboard as well as management functions for your containers and projects.
Customers can also access their Kubernetes projects via the command line (CLI) utilities like kubectl, oc and odo.
Yes, all out clouds offer software defined networking (SDN).
This allows you to create your own networks and rules of access to each network and between them.
