Announcing the general availability of multizone clusters in London
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
The Kubernetes Service is already supported in London in our United Kingdom region, and we are very excited to announce the general availability of multizone clusters in London!
Why is this important?
Multizone clusters dramatically improve the operational characteristics of your application and Kubernetes cluster resources. Let IBM manage the open-source components of the Kubernetes Service while you focus on your business objectives.
We know that data residency is very important to our customers, and we take security very seriously. If you have workloads that must remain within the border, you can now deploy a single-tenant and dedicated Kubernetes cluster in IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service and ensure your apps and data remain in the UK.
