October 13, 2021

 

  • The company cements its vision of a true multi-cloud strategy – leveraging the right infrastructure and pricing model for each workload
  • Scaleway continues to enrich its cloud ecosystem with an increased PaaS offering, with essential and high-performance solutions
  • Kubernetes developers can now extend Kubernetes Kapsule beyond the compute infrastructure to any machine – bare metal products, colocated machines, or local infrastructure

Paris, October 13, 2021 – Scaleway, the leading multi-cloud service provider for startups and developers, today released in General Availability Kubernetes Kosmos, the first-of-its-kind multi-cloud managed Kubernetes engine. Scaleway continues to disrupt the container world with this unique launch, enriching its PaaS cloud ecosystem, with essential and high-performance solutions. With Kubernetes Kosmos, developers can now attach nodes on any cloud provider or local resource, whether or not other providers offer a managed Kubernetes solution – with a fixed price per cluster of 99€ per month regardless of the number of nodes.

With more than 1,300 companies already deploying Kubernetes to more than a third of Scaleway’s total infrastructure, the company is quickly becoming a household name in the Kubernetes community with Kubernetes Kapsule, its managed Kubernetes engine. Thanks to Kubernetes Kosmos, Kubernetes developers can extend Kubernetes Kapsule beyond the compute infrastructure to any machine – Instances from any provider, Bare Metal products, colocated machines, or their personal infrastructure.

The norm for cloud natives 

As public cloud adoption continues to accelerate, an increasing number of companies continue to embrace multi-cloud strategies. Despite this approach becoming the norm for cloud native solutions architecture offering the flexibility to choose the most appropriate solution for each specific need, not all cloud providers are embracing this evolution, shifting increasingly toward a vendor lock-in strategy.

While most cloud providers are looking to trap their customers in a hybrid cloud model where they are locked into one cloud provider, and their on-premise infrastructure, Scaleway’s vision and promise are to facilitate a transition to a true multi-cloud strategy, going beyond simply leveraging infrastructure from multiple cloud providers to leveraging the right infrastructure and pricing model for each workload.

“Until now, most multi-cloud adoption was a result of opportunism – picking up infrastructure from one provider that another didn’t have, or in a geography where the other wasn’t present. With Kosmos, we are facilitating the transition to a true multi-cloud strategy, leveraging the same managed Kubernetes solution that developers have praised for its ease of use and performance, and taking it one step further.” Yann Lechelle, CEO Scaleway

The first of its kind multi-cloud managed Kubernetes engine 

Kubernetes Kosmos is a unique way to engage a true Multi-Cloud strategy with managed Kubernetes across cloud provider resources. Startups and developers can now simplify their process with a single control plane instead of managing multiple clusters in different cloud providers. For a fixed price per cluster of 99€ per month regardless of the number of nodes, Scaleway customers can attach external nodes hosted anywhere and manage them all from within our renowned control plane.

Kosmos benefits from the following features already available in Kapsule:

  • Centralized monitoring
  • Lifecycle automation
  • Fully managed & redundant Control Plane
  • Autoscaling pools for workload buffering

Dedicated Kosmos features:

  • Manage cross-provider clusters
  • Manage pools on any type of infrastructure – virtual machines, dedicated servers, colocated or on-premise infrastructure
  • Take advantage of cross-provider scalability
  • High availability – benefit from performance available across all cloud providers
