Benefits of using Leaseweb Kubernetes

Leaseweb Managed Kubernetes Beta leverages the power of Kubernetes, an open-source container orchestration platform, to simplify the management of containerized workloads across a cluster of computing nodes.


  • Managed by Leaseweb: Kubernetes allows you to seamlessly deploy and manage containerized applications. Leaseweb handles the underlying infrastructure, ensuring your applications are running smoothly.
  • Automatic Scaling and Resource Management: With Kubernetes, scaling your applications becomes effortless. It automatically adjusts the number of containers based on resource demands, ensuring optimal performance and resource utilization.
  • Storage Management: Kubernetes provides robust storage management capabilities, and Leaseweb integrates these features. It enables you to manage storage across all your containers, ensuring data persistence and application accessibility.
  • Infrastructure State Enforcement: Kubernetes enforces the desired state of your infrastructure. It ensures that your applications and containers are always running according to the defined configuration, making it easier to maintain consistency and reliability.


How can Leaseweb Managed Kubernetes help your business?

Simplifying microservice/container-based application deployment and management

Kubernetes offers a robust solution for deploying and managing microservice or container-based applications. Through its declarative approach, developers can specify desired states, facilitating automatic scaling, self-healing, and load balancing. This simplifies the handling of intricate architectures, streamlines updates, and guarantees peak performance for microservices. Additionally, Kubernetes is particularly beneficial for containerized applications and prepackaged apps, providing a seamless and efficient environment for their deployment and maintenance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Leaseweb Managed Kubernetes is a production ready service deployed in a high available setup. During the Beta phase we will acquire CNCF compliancy, fine tune the product and add additional service options. We appreciate your feedback for this. No SLA is provided during the Beta phase.
Our service is in the process of obtaining CNCF certification and is compliant with CNCF standards. Leaseweb is a registered CNCF member.
The maximum number of worker nodes allowed in a cluster is 500. However, it is recommended to stay within 100 nodes per cluster for optimal performance and manageability.
Yes, you can create and support multiple clusters. Each additional cluster represents an additional Kubernetes service where you can manage assigned resources separately per cluster and have separate master nodes, firewalls, load balancers and settings.
Yes, our Kubernetes supports automatically deployment of pre-configured load balancer and firewall options. For load balancing functionality, it supports NGINX or Traefik. However, it's important to note that we do not currently offer support for customizing firewall configuration or integrating external firewalls to a cluster. That being said, Kubernetes itself allows for defining rules on how to manage traffic related to pods through NetworkPolicy, and this feature is supported.
Yes, we provide Load Balancers with Kubernetes, which ensures even distribution of traffic for optimal performance and high availability.
Yes, Leaseweb offers a standard CNCF-compliant Kubernetes solution, allowing integration with popular Kubernetes tools, provided they can utilize the Kubernetes API functions.
No, the Kubernetes masters are under the management of Leaseweb. To ensure a reliable and well-maintained service, access to this level of infrastructure remains exclusive to Leaseweb. Customers do not have direct access to the Kubernetes master nodes.
Leaseweb manages and supports the Kubernetes version and provides support to the latest three versions. Additionally, you can easily request updates via Leaseweb support.
Leaseweb makes daily backups of the Kubernetes Control Plane and master nodes. You should back up application and data running on worker nodes and persistent storage. Learn more about supported backup options on our Knowledge Base.
