White Gradient

If you are planning to use Kubernetes or want to redesign your Kubernetes stack according to best-practices, this is for you. Don't reinvent the wheel. We have implemented many Kubernetes stacks in production. With success.

With our Kubernetes QuickStart you will be up and running in no-time with a production-ready, scalable and stable setup. We will teach you how to use the stack, so you can get back to software development. We will be there to support you if you need it.

Kubernetes Quick Start

Implement

You will get a production-grade Kubernetes stack according to the latest standards and best-practices. We will install an example application including a CI / CD pipeline, which you can copy to run your own applications.

Integrate

We will deliver a fully integrated platform so that you will be 100% ready to serve your customers. We will take care of integration with your tools like central IAM, Slack, Teams, ELK, Secret Vaults and more so you can focus on delivering business value.

Onboard

With technical hands-on workshops we personally onboard your engineers. They will learn to maintain, troubleshoot and use the stack. Together, we will install a brand-new Kubernetes cluster as-code, add your first application manifests, create a CI / CD pipeline and setup monitoring & logging.

Kubernetes as code

Setting up your Kubernetes stack the right way requires experience. Kubernetes is not secure out-of-the-box and there are many technologies involved to setup a robust and scalable platform. We believe you should be able to focus on writing software for your business. We have extensive experience running Kubernetes in production. After many iterations, we know the best-practices and where Kubernetes really shines! 

We setup your Kubernetes stack completely as-code, tailored for your organization. We use the latest open-source standards and best-practices and work 100% Cloud-Native. We will give you all the code, so you can safely build on top of the platform without any kind of vendor lock-in.

Monitoring

Monitoring your applications and infrastructure is crucial for success. You should know which metrics to look for, so you can solve issues before they are noticed by your end users. We know how to effectively monitor a Kubernetes stack. We will install monitoring & logging solutions, and configure the right metrics that are important to prevent downtime or performance issues.

 

The product includes standardized dashboards, alerts and integration with Teams, slack or other channels. You will have all the tools available to implement monitoring on your own applications in real-time and we will help you to set that up in the most optimal way.

Continuous Deployment

We know that you want to be fast. Time to market is often mentioned as one of the most important reasons to start with Kubernetes. This is why we strongly believe in Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) as the basis of our product. 

Every commit your developers make will be processed immediately. Depending on your specific situation builds will be started, code scans executed and security checks performed. This happens in minutes.

 

The subsequent deployments to your Kubernetes cluster can be even quicker. We set everything up in a way that allows for deployments in seconds, where necessary in a canary or blue/green fashion.

More details

The Pionative QuickStart can be completely customized according to your needs, but you can also choose to implement the standardized package. Feel free to schedule a demo to see what the end-result looks like!

Why choose Pionative?

If you plan on implementing Kubernetes or want to make your existing stack production-ready, there are multiple ways to do this. The Pionative QuickStart is a unique opportunity to save time and cost.

 

Many iterations

We have implemented Kubernetes many times in production. At scale. With success. We know what works and what doesn't. After many iterations, we built a standardized stack based on the latest best-practices. We want to see you succeed!

No vendor lock-in

We believe in Open Source and open standards. This is how Kubernetes was born and what made it successful. We build an open architecture, all components in the landscape are easily interchangeable. No architectural or vendor lock-in. We give you all the code, so you can extend it and build upon the platform.

Personal care

We deliver quality and believe this is best done personally. We will take the time to personally teach you everything and answer your questions. We are here to help you, whether it is for an architectural sparring session or so you don't have to spend days to fix an issue.
