Kubernetes - Dedicated control plane

High-performance container management

Create a state-of-the-art environment

Thanks to our dedicated control plane, you have all the guarantee on your instance, which brings more stable performance and no CPU steal.

Improve container orchestration

Dedicating all the power of an Instance to your environment allows your Kubernetes environment to perform two times better than the basic Kapsule offer and support a heavier workload.

Resilience for your cluster management

Ensuring the high availability and redundancy of your container orchestrator is key for business-critical applications.

Dedicated control plane use-cases

Support ML training and data mining

Training artificial intelligence models requires the high availability of orchestration capabilities. You don't want the training to stop because then you have to start all over again. The same requirements apply when dealing with large amounts of data such as data mining.

Frequently asked questions

The control plane is the Kubernetes component that makes global decisions about the cluster (for example, scheduling), as well as detecting and responding to cluster events

As a Scaleway client, you can ask for a meeting with a sales representative and a Solutions Architect to ask for a dedicated control plane. Your needs and requests will then be subject of a joint discussion.

The classic Kapsule offer is free of charge and corresponds to a highly available control plane with up to 4GB of RAM available for cluster operations. The dedicated CP offers two dedicated Instances with 8GB or 16GB or RAM each, fully dedicated to the operations happening on a single cluster, allowing users to run massively heavy workloads and handle more Kubernetes operations

Our dedicated control plane is priced at between €300/month to €500/month depending on its configuration (8GB or 16GB) since the infrastructure used for the control plane is redundant and fully dedicated to your cluster.

If you do not encounter any control plane unavailability while using Kubernetes Kapsule, then there will probably be no need for a dedicated CP. However, in case you have any doubt, our team of Solutions Architects is here to help you and analyze the usage and behavior of your control plane to suggest the offer best suited to your case.
