Platform9 Managed Kubernetes (PMK) Overview

What is PMK

Platform9 Managed Kubernetes (PMK) is a SaaS-managed Kubernetes offering that makes it easy for you to run Kubernetes on any infrastructure - either on your on-premise data centers or in the public clouds.

PMK is deployed using a unique and powerful Software-as-a-Service model, where a cloud hosted management plane remotely deploys, manages, monitors and upgrades your Kubernetes clusters, on-premises or in the public clouds. This deployment model enables us to guarantee 24x7x365 SLA for your Kubernetes environment.

For an introduction to Kubernetes, we recommend reading What is Kubernetes? And what can it do for you?
