Containership, a multicloud computing company, has announced that it now offers support for Kubernetes on their Container-as-a-Service platform.

By offering support for Kubernetes, Containership's goal is to make building cloud-agnostic, portable, containerized infrastructure easier for developers and IT operators using Kubernetes.

By offering support for Kubernetes, Containership aims to support developers in deploying their clusters by offering a range of cloud-native features in its platform.

At the same time, IT operators can manage all of their company's cloud providers and data centers through one interface.

With the launch, Containership now offers an intuitive multicloud management layer with Kubernetes while adding enhanced functionality features to its platform, including:

  • Cluster deployments on any of the 14+ integrated hosting providers
  • Cloud-agnostic firewall rules, load-balancing, service discovery - data volume management
  • Marketplace of instantly provisioned applications, projects, and services
  • Ability to snapshot the entire containerized stack (clone entire Kubernetes clusters to create new environments, DR, or to expand into new availability zones, regions, or cloud providers instantly).

Launched in 2015, Containership was founded by a group of developers and IT operators that required more from the container management platform that were on offer at the time.

The company is led by CEO Phil Dougherty, who says that when they looked at the vast landscape of projects supporting Kubernetes around them, there was a clear gap in pairing multicloud with end user simplicity and lightweight management.

“You should not need to travel to a Dojo or Garage to learn how to use a product in this day and age and you should definitely not put all your proverbial eggs in one basket when it comes to hosting providers.

“We have solved all of these issues with an easy to use multicloud platform that is cost-effective and future-proofs your container investments with no lock-in to infrastructure...or even us for that matter."
