An Introduction to Kubernetes on Equinix Metal

An Introduction to Kubernetes on Equinix Metal

Kubernetes (K8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Combined with GitOps, Continuous Integration (CI), and Continuous Delivery (CD), Kubernetes can help teams reduce cycle times, streamline infrastructure, and increase the resilience of their applications.

Instead of building a managed Kubernetes service, Equinix Metal™ focuses on building a first-class K8s experience by investing in core open-source components and plugins - from cluster creation to autoscaling.

Kubernetes is a natural fit for Equinix Metal. With all of the power and control available to you with a bare-metal cloud, Kubernetes is the control plane that enables you to deploy your applications in a uniform cloud-native way, taking advantage of both the power of bare metal and the flexibility and control of cloud-native.
