The underlying technology, metal-stack.io, is completely open source and has been in use at a number of financial institutions for over two years.

Opinionated Kubernetes Cloud

We have chosen reasonable defaults for Kubernetes clusters that facilitate your start with a Kubernetes provider. metalstack.cloud runs on bare-metal. There are no bells and whistles: you automatically get a firewall, private networking and internet gateway.

Bare metal as a service

Physical tenant separation

Nothing comes close to running Kubernetes on bare-metal in terms of performance, cost, and data security. metalstack.cloud provides you with Kubernetes on bare-metal servers, - minus the hassle. Start deploying your services in less than 10 minutes.

Unique lone tenant architecture

Kubernetes worker nodes are physical servers and dedicated to a single tenant. Feels like on-prem, but with the added benefits of the cloud.

Goodbye Meltdown, Farewell Spectre

Since you are the only tenant on a server, the risk of an attacker stealing your data when breaching another customer's services is severely reduced.

Access to Firewall and IDS Events

You have full access to firewall and IDS logs from your Kubernetes cluster.

Your infrastructure, simplified.

Managed Kubernetes

Focus on running your business, not your infrastructure. We help by managing your clusters for you. Your metal. Managed by us.
