Why Palette

An open source soul

Although we’re a commercial software company, we’re proud to be a part of the cloud-native and open source communities

We wear our badges with pride

We’re paid up members of the CNCF and Linux Foundation’s LF Edge, and supporters of the standards they work to build. We’re a CNCF-certified service provider, and our Palette Kubernetes distribution, PXK, is CNCF-conformant. Many of our team have gained CKA, CKAD and CKS certifications.

We show up to share

Go to any K8s community event and there’s a good chance you’ll meet a Spectronaut there — delivering a talk, running a workshop, or manning a table. We’re proud sponsors of DevOpsDays, Kubernetes Community Days and DevOpsCons.

We contribute to projects that matter

Our Palette platform rests on an open source foundation, and we believe in contributing to the projects that make Kubernetes what it is today.


We’re lead sponsor of the Kairos project, a Linux meta-distribution for building immutable edge images.

Cluster API

We contribute to the Cluster API project for declaratively managing Kubernetes, including building the Cluster API provider for Canonical MAAS, a key innovation in bare metal Kubernetes.


We’re also passionate about helping our customers discover and use the very best of the cloud-native landscape. We test, support and promote dozens of OSS integrations that customers can access from directly within our platform when building and deploying their Kubernetes clusters.

Spectro Cloud uniquely enables organizations to manage Kubernetes in production, at scale. Our Palette management platform gives effortless control of the full Kubernetes lifecycle, across clouds, data centers, bare metal and edge environments.
