Manage the lifecycle of any type of cluster, across any environment, with complete control over all layers and give your dev teams what they need without the hassle.Request a demo
Treat your bare metal clusters just like any other clusters
Increase performance, reduce cost and stop worrying about who is managing your Operating System. We will.
The OS challenge
Directly deploying and running Kubernetes on top of bare metal servers brings increased performance and can significantly reduce costs with one technology layer less to manage: the hypervisor.
But it can be hard with “bring your own OS” solutions, as you now have to manage the Operating System separately to the Kubernetes stack and applications, which can expose you to configuration drift that can impact performance and availability, besides increasing the operational hassle.
Introducing Palette Bare Metal
With Palette’s Real Metal architecture, your bare metal servers’ OS becomes just another layer being managed by Palette, with all the comprehensive day 0-2 features that come with it
This is what true “full-stack” means: everything automated and managed, from the OS, to the K8s infrastructure and add-on application services. Unified management across all layers, so you don’t have to worry about configuration drift and things breaking down.
Full-stack bare metal management powered by cutting-edge open source projects
Leveraging CNCF’s Cluster API, Palette manages all your clusters in a declarative way with Cluster Profiles: you define what your clusters should look like and Palette ensures they always stay that way, consistent against the declarative profile via continuous reconciliation. And with MAAS integration, you can treat your bare metal data center like a cloud!
Canonical MAAS, or Metal As A Service manages the lifecycle of bare metal machines and provides a clean and flexible API to do so. It allows you to easily install, upgrade, and rebuild servers, providing them with an operating system such as Ubuntu, from scratch. This means you can programmatically manage your bare metal servers, enabling you to provision, decommission, track inventory, test, and maintain your bare metal cloud. Find out more about MAAS here.
