Features: Kubernetes as a Service

Miscellaneous & service

Pay-as-you-use with no minimum contract period

Pay only for what you use: per minute billing of your selected configuration. The price is calculated on a prorated basis/per minute once the cluster or node has been deleted. Billing is monthly, at the end of a billing period. There is no minimum contract period, so you can cancel the contract at any time.

Data center location

You can pick the location of the data center for your project server at no extra charge.


Persistent storage

Use Kubernetes to create persistent storage volumes to use shared storage space for several nodes. Our persistent storage is based on the IONOS Cloud platform block storage, for which we utilize state-of-the-art SSD SAN storage systems—just $7.20/month for 100 GB (per minute billing).


Hot swapping option

Increase the capacity of your server/project without shutting down the system.

KVM console

Use the KVM console to access your server as if it were right on your desk.

Interactive invoicing

Full billing transparency: access and forecast your costs as an aggregate or per minute amount, based on your use.


The Kubernetes clusters are based on virtualized servers by VMware.

SAN storage systems

All virtual machines are stored on storage area networks. SAN is significantly more failsafe than DAS (Direct Attached Storage) or local storage. It keeps your data available, even if a storage node fails.


Unlimited traffic, without any automatic throttling.


Internal network connection 10 Gbit/s
External connection per VM up to 400 Mbit/s
