Solution for many use cases

The flexibility of Kubernetes

Cloud-native Application development and delivery

Manage your deployments, not Virtual Machines (VMs). Ensure peace of mind with self-healing, horizontal scaling. All components & deployments – such as Helm Charts – are readily available from the community.

Dynamic workloads

Choose between demand or time-based scaling of your environments. Be more efficient with optimised resource usage. Usage examples: e-commerce, gaming, CI/CD.

Machine learning

Run your entire machine-learning workflow in one place by deploying machine-learning models on the cloud. UpCloud’s Managed Kubernetes enables the running of machine-learning workflows in the cloud, improving flexibility and efficiency. Choose the machine learning platform that best suits your needs (such as Kubeflow), with seamless integration into the UpCloud ecosystem.

Pricing simplified

From Development to Production with ease

Managed Kubernetes Control plane is priced according to the plan, Development or Production, which you can choose at cluster deployment.

Data plane is charged by the worked node according to the selected configuration. Worker nodes can be deployed using any General Purpose, High CPU or High Memory Cloud Server plans.

Development plan


per month

Development plan offers a great starting point
for any containerized application

  • One Control plane node
  • Up to 50 Worker nodes

Production plan


per month

Production plan expands the capabilities of a regular cluster
with high availability and a larger data plane.

  • High-availability Control plane
  • Up to 200 worker nodes
