Kubernetes Stack

Start or scale your Kubernetes stack with our infrastructure-as-code templates. Whether you have a local cluster or remote nodes, consistency in every deployment is just a click away through our management console.

Agile Stacks Kubernetes Stack provides automation to deploy Kubernetes in your multi-cloud architecture. Whether you are looking to deploy EKS or self-hosted Kubernetes, a control plane enables your Kubernetes cluster provisioning in minutes. There is no need to worry about the ongoing monitoring, troubleshooting, and upgrades since we handle that for you.

Henceforth, manually setting up servers, VPCs, security roles, SSL certificates, DNS, CI/CD pipelines, and container registries is a thing of the past. Our SuperHub Engine curates and composes all the parts to deliver a fully operational Kubernetes cluster in minutes, not days. No need to fight your software to get your job done.

We implement the following best practices to get you what you need quickly:

  • Architect for scale and resilience
  • Write your necessary infrastructure as code
  • Implement observability and alerting for all services
  • Remove single points of failure
  • Automate the entire CI/CD pipeline
  • Design for cost optimization
  • Build security into your design
  • Apply tags, labels, namespaces for access control and usage analytics

Agile Stacks also offers a catalog of add-on services and tools for your Kubernetes clusters. In addition to automated monitoring, storage, networking, Agile Stacks integrates and automates security throughout the entire provisioned stack. Each application service and every tool in the DevOps toolchain is secured automatically with a unique SSL certificate, SSO, and RBAC.
