Run K8s in your data center
Become your very own cloud provider
With metalstack.cloud on premises, you can deploy your private cloud without any vendor lock-in. Our entire stack is open source and can be audited at any time. High performance clusters with physical tenant separation help with compliance in highly regulated industries. And because it's fully API-driven, it can help lower DevOps and operational costs while offering high availability.
Comply with regulations
Originally built for the banking sector, our architecture deploys Kubernetes on bare metal, physically separating clusters on a machine to machine basis.
API-based Kubernetes as a service cuts on manual DevOps tasks. Automatic version updates and plug-and-play server expansion help streamline operations.
State-of-the art computing
By dropping the hypervisor, you get about 5% more processing power and 20% faster network processing
Easy to deploy. Easier to use.
The stack is the same technology we used in our public cloud offering metalstack.cloud. Bare metal Kubernetes clusters form the basis of your operations. Automated scaling and cluster configurations make operations easy. And Open Source never locks you into a proprietary solution.
Increased security by design
Tenant separation is at the heart of metalstack.cloud on prem - and allows data isolation between departments or business units.
Our modern stack is fully controllable via API, automates configurations, minimizes downtime and saves on maintenance costs.
First-class developer experience
Modern UI, CLI tools and excellent documentation mean that your team can focus on development.
Because the entire software stack is open source, you are never locked in to a vendor. Feel free to audit the software at any time.
Highest performance possible.
Run demanding workflows on a Kubernetes focused stack without virtualisation.
Plug and play scaling
Need more compute? Add new servers to provision even more clusters without any downtime.
