What is a Cloud Provider

A Cloud Provider enables Administrators to authenticate with and deploy Kubernetes on a wide variety of private or public clouds. A cloud provider then leverages features and capabilities native to that cloud to create Kubernetes clusters on it.

Platform9 Managed Kubernetes can be deployed on following cloud platforms today:

  • Amazon Web services
  • Microsoft Azure

To create a Kubernetes cluster using Platform9’s native public integrations, you need to first create AWS or Azure credentials and then add a cloud provider.
