World class tooling: OEM independent

Regardless of which technology you need for your business, we provide you with the features of tomorrow with MetaKube.

For example from…:

  • AWS
  • Heptio Ark
  • Helm
  • Magnolia
  • HashiCorp

This is how we understand Managed Kubernetes as a Service. By using MetaKube by SysEleven, you stay independent of individual technology suppliers — and are ready for the future.

Additionally, we provide you with SaaS solutions like a load balancer as well as solutions for backup and recovery.

For SysEleven, our service is not “just” in reaction to a request. Rather it is the tool to find and take the best path, and it is a vital part of MetaKube.

Your MetaKube service components include:

  • Lifecycle management: MetaKube contains a complete lifecycle management that takes care of your Kubernetes cluster’s software updates.
  • Direct contact to the MetaKube engineering team.
  • E-mail and telephone support at no additional cost.
  • MetaKube Kubernetes tutorials that are always up to date and are highly valued by our customers.
  • One-on-one consultations with our globally recognized experts.
  • In less than five minutes, you can have your first Kubernetes cluster, and in 30 minutes your application is up and running.
  • Deployment, scaling, and data restore are fully automated.
  • Included integration of your CI/CD pipelines to get all the advantages of automation.
  • MetaKube’s Dashboard GUI makes cluster administration simple.
  • Up to date always and everywhere with MetaKube Documentation.
  • High-availability solutions for container orchestration: All components are designed for maximum availability.
  • Continuous optimization of MetaKube based on the principles of SRE.

That means you benefit from all standard Kubernetes features:

  • Automated bin packing of containers across all instances.
  • Automated rollout whenever there are changes in the application or configuration. Should an error occur, Kubernetes performs a rollback.
  • Automatic scaling of applications with a simple command or as an automated response to CPU loads.Storage orchestration and self healing supports many different storage providers, classes, and APIs. Depending on demand, containers are restarted, deleted, or replaced by Kubernetes.
  • Service discovery: All services and endpoints receive their own DNS name. Kubernetes can distribute queries amongst them as soon as there are changes to the application or configuration. Should an error occur, Kubernetes performs a rollback.

100% independence for you. MetaKube for:

Managed Kubernetes aaS with MetaKube:

With MetaKube Add-ons, your DevOps team is able to implement and manage extra applications and services in the MetaKube Dashboard. Your team can install Add-ons at the push of a button, while we handle the management of services like updates and operations for you. Depending on your requirements and wishes, we offer the following fully managed applications:

  • Managed Prometheus: We provide your DevOps teams a simple installation and configuration of Prometheus, Grafana, and Alert Managers. Coming soon: The included Prometheus Operator makes the service high availability (HA) capable.
  • Managed Velero: With this Add-on, we provide you with a range of backup tools to secure your Kubernetes resources and applications. With Velero (formerly Heptio ARK), at any time you can secure and restore Kubernetes resources including persistent storage.
  • Managed Nginx: Within your MetaKube Cluster, the Nginx Kubernetes Ingress Controller acts as a load balancer with SSL/TLS termination proxies for all Ingress resources.
  • Managed Weave Scope: With Weave Scope, in real time, you can easily and clearly display all pods, services, and cluster resources.
  • Managed Kubernetes Dashboard: In the Web-based Kubernetes UI, you can allocate, debug, and manage your compartmentalized applications.
  • Web Terminal: The web terminal gives you command line access to your cluster and your OpenStack resources directly from the browser.
  • CERT Manager: The Jetstack cert-manager allows to automatically create and extend SSL/TLS certificates with Let’s Encrypt. It also seamlessly integrates with Ingress Controllers to automatically create certificates for Ingress resources.
  • External DNS: With the External DNS Service, OpenStack Designate, AWS Route53, Cloudflare and many other DNS providers can be integrated and synchronized.

Your developers can benefit from ever greater automation. That’s why we provide them with a MetaKube REST API. Use an API token to manage your MetaKube Cluster using our REST API. With it, you can create new clusters as well as call up information about existing clusters at any time. You can easily download the API token from the MetaKube Dashboard.
