Linode Kubernetes Engine

The Linode Kubernetes Engine combines Linode’s 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

Using Linode Kubernetes Engine, you can 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. Linode Kubernetes Engine supports 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 LKE cluster comes with a complimentary Kubernetes control plane – including API, scheduler, etcd, and resource controllers. Your clusters are not subject to a management fee.

Linode Kubernetes Pricing

Linode Kubernetes Engine pricing includes only the resources you consume – Linode VMs, NodeBalancers, and Volumes. Your cluster’s master services are free of charge.
