Managed Kubernetes is for customers who want to run their containers in a production ready environment without the overhead of administering a cluster or running the ancillary services which enable you to get the most out of your cluster.
At Nine we know that having a bulletproof, production ready Kubernetes environment is not just about managing a cluster. It’s about providing monitoring, logging, backups, continuous deployment and all the other tools and services which you need to be confident that your application is working as intended.
Nine’s unique Kubernetes offering provides you with industry standard software and offers an end-to-end Kubernetes experience, supported by a knowledgeable and accredited team, and all backed by an SLA.
We offer additional application monitoring via managed Prometheus and Grafana, giving you insight into your application performance and allowing you to create alerts.
Nine’s included software stack is fully open source and we use industry standard tools:
• Continuous Deployment - ArgoCD
• Certificate Management - Cert Manager (Let’s Encrypt)
• Event-Driven Autoscaling - KEDA (until Q3 2022 Google only)
• Helm Chart Storage - Chart Museum
• Ingress - Nginx
• Cluster Visibility - Kubernetes Dashboard
• Cluster Monitoring: Grafana, Prometheus and AlertManager
• Cluster and Config Backup - Velero
Our managed Kubernetes product allows you the full flexibility of either Google Cloud Platform or Nine’s Swiss datacentres. Your cluster can run in any region, and you can use a wide variety of virtual machine types to create workload specific node pools. We integrate other services into your cluster, making it easy for you to use anything you may require for your application.
Nine’s software stack is fully isolated from your application, giving you all the compute power you pay for, and ensuring your applications' security and stability. We fully manage all the software that we provide, ensuring that it is kept up to date with the latest security patches and bug fixes. We monitor the software stack 24x7 to ensure that it is always working when you need it.

Self-service has become ubiquitous beyond the IT sector. Nevertheless, self-service cannot solve every problem. What do customers really want? This post outlines the advantages and disadvantages of self-service in cloud management.
Kubernetes vs Docker - Auflösung einer häufig auftretenden Verwirrung. Der Titel dieses Blogbeitrags "Kubernetes vs Docker" ist eigentlich ein Widerspruch in sich. Oft sorgt die Phrase "Kubernetes vs Docker" daher für Verwirrung.
We recently added Argo CD as a new feature to our Nine Managed GKE. In this post, we explain how we arrived at this decision, what its advantages are and how it is used.
