Linode Kubernetes Engine (LKE)
LKE is a fully-managed 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.
Easily Deploy and Manage
Using LKE, you can configure, provision, and manage your clusters in a few easy steps.
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.
No Management Fees
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.
Scale to Meet Demand
Horizontal Pod Scaling scales your instances in real time to meet changing demands, so you can effortlessly match your resources with your workload.
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.
More Bundled Services
Each LKE cluster comes with a complimentary control plane – including API, scheduler, etcd, and resource controllers. Your clusters are not subject to a management fee.
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.
