The Managed Kubernetes® service is provided free of charge. This includes the deployment, hosting and updating of all of the cluster’s master components, as well as the operational maintenance of your nodes (operating system and Kubernetes components of the worker nodes). You only pay for the computing resources and the storage hosting your containers and their persistent data, all while enjoying the standard OVH Public Cloud tariffs, traffic included.
Managed Kubernetes Service
✓ Kubernetes® deployment (APIserver, cloud-controller, controller-manager, scheduler...)
✓ Updates and monitoring of Kubernetes® components
✓ Master nodes hosting administration services
✓ Installation and updates of worker nodes (kubelet, docker...)
✓ Network traffic entering, leaving or inside the included cluster
Excluding worker nodes, persistent volumes, and Load Balancer (services invoiced at the standard OVH Public Cloud rates)
OVH Public Cloud services, managed by Kubernetes®
Only the servers hosting your containers and services are billed to you, at standard Public Cloud prices (Linux). You can choose any instance* and enjoy its guaranteed resources in terms of both CPU and RAM. You can switch your instances to a monthly plan to save up to 50% of the hourly cost.
*Except Sandbox instances.
GPU instances will be compatible by the end of 2019.
You can add additional disks for your persistent volumes. One or more disks can be added to your nodes and shared between multiple containers. High-performance disks are recommended for your demanding input/output loads.
OVH Load Balancer
To expose your services publicly to the port of your choice and/or to spread the load across multiple worker nodes, you can add OVH Load Balancers.
Free early access
until 1st September, 2019
Rates will be announced approximately one month
before the end of the free period.
Private Docker Registry
To store your Docker images and Helm charts, you can use our private registry.
Storage is included, and you do not pay any fees for incoming and outgoing traffic on your registry.
Setting up a high-availability Kubernetes® cluster with the best price/performance ratio on the market
A typical Managed Kubernetes® Service use case:
You run a website based on two Docker images: one is for the database, the other is your web application.
Your website receives a high volume of traffic and you need to ensure high availability. You also need to accommodate spikes in online traffic.
To ensure high availability, you choose to distribute the web application on two worker nodes.
The third hosts your database. This data is stored on a high-performance disk.
To distribute web traffic between your worker nodes, you use an OVH Load Balancer.
If you anticipate an increase in traffic during a specific period, you can adjust your platform accordingly.
