Competence is scarce and expensive: Hiring and retaining 4-5 Kubernetes experts to operate your clusters 24/7 might not be the most economical way. Switching to Kubernetes also requires new security considerations.
Day 2 operations are complex: Kubernetes is notoriously hard to operate for mission critical workloads under strict SLAs.
The landscape is rapidly evolving: Keeping up with the fast changing cloud native ecosystem is a huge challenge.
Security and compliance is hard: Ops people are not necessarily cloud native security and compliance experts, which makes it time-consuming to keep up with the latest CVEs and regulations.
If you’re working in a highly regulated industry like healthcare, fintech or iGaming you have two options if you want to run modern, containerized workloads on Kubernetes — either you build and maintain a compliant infrastructure yourself and manage the control plane, the operating system and the underlying infrastructure to stay compliant, or you take the risk of falling out of compliance by using an generic managed container platform.
Elastisys Compliant Kubernetes (CK8s) is a highly secure container platform that allows you to run modern, containerized workloads while fulfilling regulatory requirements. CK8s accelerates application development and delivery, simplifies installation and operations and helps fulfill regulatory standards like ISO-27001, GDPR and PCI-DSS.
It’s 100% open-source and compatible with upstream Kubernetes. No proprietary lock-in ensures your future success and freedom to choose providers.
CK8s can be run both on-premise (VMware vSphere or OpenStack) or in public clouds (AWS, GCE, Azure, Digital Ocean, City Cloud) and can be run either as a managed service by Elastisys or as your own stand-alone container platform.
This is the most secure Kubernetes cluster available.
Deployments include logging, monitoring, intrusion detection, network segmentation, audit trails and more tailored to adher to the strict security demands placed by regulations like GDPR, ISO27000-1 and international betting regulations. CK8s is fully open source and built on upstream Kubernetes but comes pre-configured for compliance and security out of the box.
Being compliant does not start when your applications run in production. Elastisys Compliant Kubernetes shifts security and compliance focus left, providing the means to secure your applications throughout the whole software development life cycle.
CK8s does this by:
