Kubernetes

OSSO provides managed kubernetes clusters including full operational support.

The cloud?

You should run your workload where it makes sense. Be it from a cost perspective, technical criteria, security requirements, or level of available support.

At OSSO, we focus on our strong points and where we can provide the most value.

Where we differ from the public cloud providers:

High reliability

OSSO manages the full infrastructure stack providing us with full insight and control.

Eliminating black boxes or mystery noisy neighbours. We can see every layer in the infrastructure and don’t try to be mysterious about it either.

We build on open source and open networking and are open about our infrastructure architecture as well.

Capacity

We optimize for stable long lived kubernetes clusters with a relatively steady load pattern. To handle (un)expected growth we can easily double or triple the nodes in a cluster in a short time.

Due to different levels of scaling, very short lived clusters/capacity demands are not cost effective in our infrastructure. For example use cases that need large amounts of resources (e.g. 50-5000 nodes for a day) are better off in the public cloud.

Multi cloud and interconnecting

We can facilitate high bandwidth and fast interconnects (up to 10Gbit/s) to public clouds such as (GCE, AWS, Azure) or almost any other datacenter located party in the Netherlands.

Support from OSSO Operations/SRE team

We make extensive use of Slack for communicating with our customers (using shared channels). This allows for easy communication, sharing of code, issues, updates, etc. aswell as sharing the occasional joke every now and then :-).
