Managed Kubernetes as a Service

Kubernetes can no longer be considered a new kid on the block. Its benefits are too numerous, including the automation of CI/CD pipelines, the reduction in the risk of downtime, and the improved performance of developers and their developments. The complexity of 100% self-operated Kubernetes environments is just as great, with costs exceeding the benefits.


The GEC Kubernetes Service provides the solution for these requirements: Our experts take the complex work off your hands, so that the advantages on the developer side can be used without delay. There is also an outstanding depth of integration: From public cloud to private bare-metal Kubernetes to edge deployments, German Edge Cloud integrates and standardizes everything.

  • Quick and easy setup, updating, and deletion of Kubernetes clusters
  • The “traditional” way with us in the cloud or “on-premises” on your own infrastructure: ONCITE

GEC answers frequently
asked questions about Kubernetes.

Kubernetes and machine learning – does this work?

Yes, because Kubernetes as a Service from German Edge Cloud helps to solve cluster problems on the one hand and to meet specific machine learning challenges on the other. Kubernetes thus makes development much more efficient, in particular by using package managers such as Helm.


Is there an architecture overview?

Of course. See for example the three availability zones of the GEC core in Frankfurt. Please contact us to learn more.
