A rock-solid foundation for
Cloud native workloads

A rock-solid foundation for Cloud native workloads

A universal, EU-compliant and vendor-neutral backbone that eliminates IaaS-
provider differences and provides a consistent API for containerized PaaS.

A universal, EU-compliant and vendor-neutral backbone that eliminates IaaS- provider differences and provides a consistent API for containerized PaaS.

A K8s-native layer to manage EU-centric, vendor-neutral IaaS & PaaS — from a single place

Automated (EU-governed) IaaS setup & config

Looking southbound (= towards the IaaS-layer), the ValueCloud Service Foundation master cluster manages all IaaS resources, across multiple providers. You simply add the API key to integrate with your preferred IaaS-provider, and ValueCloud deployment engine does all the rest. Security and privacy for all secrets is guaranteed, across the process.

A single, consistent API for powerful PaaS

Looking northbound (= towards the PaaS layer), each single ValueCloud Service Foundation customer instance offers the same and consistent Kubernetes API to manage all additional PaaS components. It’s never been easier to build a fully-loaded, vendor-agnostic and EU-compliant Cloud native Stack, at the speed of light.

Graceful VM security reboots

Security patches on VM-level are being incorporated with minimum time and operational hazzle.

Graceful K8s upgrades

K8s upgrades are being orchestrated and enforced automatically, with no manual interaction needed.

Dedicated or shared CP

Customers can choose between dedicated or shared K8s control plane in multi-tenancy modus.

Audit proof compliance

All cluster-internal action is being recorded and documented for compliance reasons.

Multiple node pools

You can create and operate multiple node pools, across multiple regions.

Dynamic node pool sizing

Node pools can be dynamically sized, with zero operational downtime and no operational hazzle.

Sealed secrets

All secrets are encrpyted, across the entire provisioning process.

Autoscaling (optional)

If activated, autoscaling resizes your node pools according to the current operational workload.

Node-level firewalls
