Managed Kubernetes

Our managed Kubernetes service combines our ease of use and simple pricing with the infrastructure efficiency of Kubernetes. You can now get your infrastructure and workloads up and running in minutes instead of days.


Easily Deploy and Manage Kubernetes Clusters

Configure, provision, and manage your Kubernetes clusters in a few easy steps.


Scale to Meet Demand

Create and destroy resources in real time based on resource limits with Horizontal Cluster Autoscaling. More efficiently manage node pools, resulting in highly available and stable applications.


Enjoy Maximum Efficiency From Your Resources

Automatically get the most out of your resources. Kubernetes seamlessly distributes 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 with support and integration with popular K8s-related tools, such as Rancher, Helm, Operators, and more.


No Kubernetes Management Fees

Enjoy the power of Kubernetes without breaking the bank. You only pay for Linodes, Nodebalancers, and Block Storage services. You don’t pay a penny for your cluster’s master services.  Amazon EKS & GKE charge a per cluster management fee of $.10/hour or $73/month.


More Kubernetes Bundled Services

Each managed Kubernetes cluster comes with a complimentary Kubernetes control plane – including API, scheduler, etcd, and resource controllers. Your clusters are not subject to a management fee.

Managed Kubernetes Pricing

Pricing includes only the resources you consume – Linodes, NodeBalancers, and Volumes. Your cluster’s master services are free of charge.

CNCF Kubernetes Certified


We're part of the CNCF Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program. This certification means your Kubernetes workloads conform to portability standards, and you'll always have access to the latest updates and features.

"I honestly think Linode [now Akamai] Kubernetes Engine might be the simplest hosted Kubernetes I've ever used."
