Supervised Kubernetes

How does it benefit me?

Getting a Supervised cluster means you get a vanilla K8s cluster without the painstaking job of maintaining the core components of the cluster. Maintaining the core aspect of the cluster will be handled by seasoned K8s specialists from ASERGO.

You just need to concentrate at managing your apps and the cluster environment, no worries about cluster not working after a failed update of any of the core elements.

Supervised k8s cluster include all the benefits of Selfmanaged k8s cluster such as access to DNS servers, Availability Zones, storage, access to our network spanning over 3 data centers (2 in Denmark, 1 in Germany) and access to the ASERGO Dashboard.

ASERGO services

When you get a k8s cluster you will still get all the known benefits known from our dedicated series, like access to DNS servers, Availability Zones, storage and access to our network spanning over 3 data centers (2 in Denmark, 1 in Germany).

A cluster is locked to only operate in 1 data center, but it is possible to split up the cluster and make it operate across 2 or even 3 data centers.

Most of these functions can be accessed through the ASERGO Dashboard.

Support

ASERGO has a dedicated k8s team that works with production clusters on a daily basis and stand by to help you with anything related to your k8s cluster.

Quality of life Addons

A cluster from ASERGO is a vanilla cluster included with a few addons to help you get started using the cluster in no time. Addons include a central pod logging and a web UI to manage the cluster.

The web UI can be used to deploy new apps and troubleshoot any cluster problems. It also provides an opportunity to modify already defined deployments, jobs, daemonSets and StatefulSets ect.

The web UI also provides live information stats of the cluster and its nodes, such as RAM, CPU and volume usage.

The login installed on the cluster is an EFK stack (Elasticsearch, fluentd and Kibana) to centralize all pod logs. Custom filters can be setup in fluentd's ConfigMap to match your apps log output format.

This ConfigMap can either be edited from the web UI or from cli with tools such as kubectl.
