IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service goes live in Chennai, India

IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is a managed Kubernetes offering that delivers powerful management tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications, all while leveraging Cloud Services and cognitive capabilities from Watson. IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service provides native Kubernetes capabilities like intelligent scheduling, self-healing, horizontal scaling, service discovery and load balancing, automated rollouts and rollbacks, and secret and configuration management. IBM is also adding capabilities to the Kubernetes Service, including the following:

  • Simplified cluster management
  • Container security and isolation choices
  • The ability to design your own cluster
  • The option to leverage other IBM Cloud services such as Watson for your cognitive applications
  • Completely native Kubernetes CLI and API
  • Integrated operational tools or support to bring your own tools to ensure operational consistency with other deployments

Both isolated and connected applications

In a rapidly changing world where cross-border business has become the norm, you can respect nation-state regulatory sovereignty and, at the same time, leverage the benefits of workloads hosted in the public cloud. No matter what your application does today, your ability to innovate quickly is key. With the addition of this latest data center within India, your developers have access to innovative services, such as IBM Personality Insights, while also feeling confident about their app’s availability. A complete list of supported data centers can be found in our docs.
