Questions and Answers about Nine Managed GKE


What is Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)?

Optionally you can choose from two different SLAs to meet your requirements on reaction times and availability.

What is Nine Managed GKE?

Nine managed GKE is our managed service product that lets your containers running in a save and highly scalable cluster. Nine provides additional extra features on top of Google Kubernetes and takes over running and updating the cluster (doing back-ups, taking care of storage, adding external services, monitoring, replicate environments etc.) for you in order to enable you to concentrate entirely on the application development and orchestrating your container on the platform.

What can I use Nine Managed GKE for?

Can’t I  manage the Google Kubernetes Cloud myself?

Depending on your internal IT set-up, you could do it. But why make your life harder and bind resources in areas where you don’t create any business value? You have to ask yourself the following questions: Do we know which services we need? Are we able to do back-ups ourselves? Are we able to replicate environments? Do we know how to build CI/CD pipelines ourselves? We know from our experience, that those things can really prevent you from creating the needed business value since these tasks are very complex and time consuming. Instead, profit from our experience.

Do I need a Google Cloud Platform account to be able to use Nine Managed GKE?

With nine Managed GKE you do not need  your own account on the Google Cloud Platform.
We take care of everything for you.

How does nine back up my data?

Nine implements automated backups of the volume data of the Customer's cluster, allowing for fast and automated restoration of data as needed.

How many nodes do I have to order?

The minimum cluster size is 6 nodes. 3x customer and 3x nine nodes.  Our nodes do not scale linearly with the customer nodes, since these are only increased if more power is needed on our side. Nine will help you to choose just the right size for the nodes, suiting your individual demand.
