Scaleway brings containerized applications closer to its customers in Eastern Europe and launches the popular Kubernetes Kapsule in Poland

January 21, 2021

Kubernetes Kapsule addresses many modern issues, whether it is hyper scalability, infrastructure redundancy, or simply for cost optimization. Fully managed, Kubernetes Kapsule includes one of the widest choice of instances on the market, ranging from Dev instances at €7.99 /month up to very high-end Render-S GPU instances, thus allowing to get started with a cost-effective few-nodes cluster but also to deploy a cluster of up to 500 nodes for artificial intelligence projects (e.g. distributed machine learning).

 

Scaleway offers the only Kubernetes service on the market that has an Easy Deploy feature and is free of charge. Highly available, the user only pays for the allocated resources at no additional cost:

  • high availability with a 99.95% Control Plane SLA
  • for each cluster, Kaspule’s Control Plane is duplicated to ensure that a replacement control plane remains available at any time, ensuring platform continuity
  • leverages all the tools needed to achieve excellent machine learning performance

Coupled with state-of-the-art integration in full compliance with CNCF standards, Kubernetes Kapsule inherently avoids the ” vendor lock-in” pitfall and perfectly fits the design of the company’s hybrid and multi-cloud applications and infrastructures, favoring openness and transparency.

Besides node auto-scaling, Kubernetes Kapsule also brings ease to many processes: clusters benefit from an auto-healing feature where the cluster automatically recovers and returns to its initial state; cluster access renewal operations such as access invalidation are simplified. Other available options include Nginx and Traefik as Ingress controller3, as well as four different Container Network Interfaces (CNIs).

 

A complete European alternative that makes sense

Kubernetes Kapsule also benefits from the entire public cloud ecosystem, Scaleway Elements, thus extensible on Block Storage,Container Registry and Load balancer already on offer in Poland (pl-waw-1). 

By positioning a strong offering on the Polish market before all other dominant cloud providers, Scaleway is the only supplier in the region to offer developer users and corporate customers a set of GDPR-compliant, reliable, innovative, flexible and fairly priced Public Cloud products.
