Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE)
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.
Enjoy Maximum Efficiency From Your Resources
Automatically get the most out of your resources. Seamlessly distribute containers across your cluster to ensure you get the most efficient utilization of your resources.
Deploy Popular Apps Using Helm charts, Operators, and Controllers
Harness the strong open source ecosystem of Kubernetes tooling. LKE supports integration with popular K8s-related tools, such as Rancher, Helm, Operators, and more.
No Management Fees
You only pay for Compute Instances, NodeBalancers, and Block Storage Volumes. You don’t pay a penny for your managed Kubernetes control plane, unlike other Cloud providers.
Amazon EKS & GKE charge a per cluster management fee of $.10/hour or $73/month.
Developer Friendly and Portable
Create and manage your LKE cluster directly through the Linode API, enabling you to integrate Kubernetes management with your own infrastructure. Since LKE is built on Kubernetes, you can quickly move your existing applications and workloads to Linode’s platform.
LKE pricing includes only the resources you consume – Linodes, NodeBalancers, and Volumes. Your cluster’s master services are free of charge.
Additional LKE Features
Self-Service Version Upgrades
Aggregation Layer & Metrics Pipeline
Linode is certified as part of the CNCF Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program. This means your LKE workloads conform to portability standards, and you'll always have access to the latest updates and features. Linode is a silver sponsor of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), where Kubernetes is a Graduated Project.
