Security-focused cloud infrastructure provider phoenixNAP has recently updated its Bare Metal Cloud (BMC) platform, designed to simplify the deployment of highly available (HA) multi-node Kubernetes clusters.
The new upgrade targets specifically enterprise production environments, enabling the creation of highly available management clusters via BMC and SUSE Rancher integration.
For context, phoenixNAP’ released its BMC and SUSE Rancher integration in July this year, with the goal to help companies interested in building a container services platform by providing the deployment of highly available upstream clusters in a practical and direct way.
From a technical standpoint, the phoenixNAP’s self-service portal enables developers to deploy pre-configured servers on multiple global locations and adjust node settings as desired.
All instances are then accessible via kubectl, through which they can be managed and scaled, using API, CLI, and other Infrastructure as Code tools, and without the extra added ‘weight’ of a hypervisor.
“This new phase of our SUSE Rancher integration provides a critical capability for teams that are already leveraging containers and are looking to optimize their performance, as well as those interested in using them but without complex and costly infrastructure upgrades,” explained Martin Wielomski, Director of Products at phoenixNAP.
According to the executive, the new phase of its BMC’s SUSE Rancher integration provides a critical capability for teams that are already leveraging containers and are looking to optimize their performance, as well as those interested in using them but without complex and costly infrastructure upgrades.
“They can now deploy their servers in an automated fashion to save time on platform management and improve focus on application development and delivery.”
The new release also enables the BMC platform to support a greater variety of DevOps needs and workloads.
The solution now also includes 15 TB of free bandwidth to share between all instances on a single location, as well as 50 Gbps network capacity and 20 Gbps of free DDoS protection.
Moving forward, phoenixNAP said its BMC offering is focused on going beyond single node deployments that are mainly used for development and sandbox environments.
