Container technology is currently probably the most important trend in the cloud. What virtualization was in the noughties, the use of software containers is today. Used correctly, container technology leads to significant improvements in flexibility, reliability and hardware utilization. With the self-developed Scalable Kubernetes Service, SKS for short, Exoscale offers a managed Kubernetes that handles the orchestration and automation of containerized applications. Our customers will benefit from the ease of use and advantageous, transparent cost structure that they have come to expect from Exoscale even now."

A1 Digital's pricing model for Kubernetes as a managed service starts at free for developers and a Pro package for enterprises. The packages differ in the size of the Kubernetes masters as well as the additional services such as backup & recovery, lifecycle management or upgrade planning.
