Could Managed Kubernetes Be An Opportunity To Grow Your MSP Business?

96°F, some of the world’s best paella, and one of the most popular events on the developer conference calendar.

It wasn’t a difficult decision when the opportunity arose to work the Linode booth at Kubecon + CloudNativeCon in Valencia this year to talk about our production-ready managed Kubernetes engine (LKE).

The number of vendors in attendance at Kubecon, including the likes of Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Cisco, along with their mini towns once known as event booths, underlined just how bullish the industry is about the potential of Kubernetes and the ecosystem that surrounds it.

My mission as a Partner Advocate at Linode was to dig a little deeper into the relevance of Kubernetes for the Managed Service Providers (MSPs) in our partner program and the opportunity it represents to help grow their businesses.

I filmed a short conversation at Kubecon with my colleague Billy Thompson from Linode’s Solutions Engineering team and Linux guru (official title) to discuss exactly that.

We talked about:

  • The rate of cloud adoption among SMBs
  • The client/developer/MSP relationship
  • What Kubernetes is and the benefits
  • How Managed Kubernetes makes it easier than ever for MSPs

LKE is a fully-managed K8s container orchestration engine for deploying and managing containerized applications and workloads. LKE combines Linode’s ease of use and simple pricing with infrastructure efficiency. You can now get your infrastructure and workloads up and running in minutes instead of days.
