For us at ELASTX, it is very important to be able to deliver bleeding edge cloud services and IT operations where we see added value for our customers, says Joakim Öhman, CEO at ELASTX. We are now pleased to inform you that ELASTX is the first company in Sweden with a certified Kubernetes service.

After choosing to become part of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and the Linux Foundation, the next natural step and goal was to be both KCSP (Kubernetes Certified Service Provider) and have a certified Kubernetes platform on top of our OpenStack IaaS.

”- Our infrastructure extends over three data centers in Sweden and is built to meet the demands of major enterprise companies on IT today. We will be a good alternative to American cloud giants like Amazon, Google and Microsoft. We work with open standards and have no technical or commercial lock-in, which together with automation enables our customers to quickly come up with new, better products.” -Henrik Grankvist, Vice President of ELASTX.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open source based orchestration platform for containers that enables large scalable environments with high availability through declarative configuration and automation. There is a large and fast growing cloud native ecosystem where Kubernetes is the strongest bright star. Read more about Kubernetes at kubernetes.io.

Containers are first class citizens in our platforms and Kubernetes is the obvious choice for us when you want to run on Cloud Native. Cloud Native is a collection of technologies that enable developers to build applications faster, better and more accessible.
