More Kubernetes support on Equinix Metal

By

Digital infrastructure provider Equinix has announced expanded support for Kubernetes on Equinix Metal.

Products and services from Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Anywhere, Google Cloud's Anthos, Mirantis Container Cloud, Suse Rancher and K3s, Canonical Kubernetes, IBM Cloud Satellite, Platform9, Rafay and others are now available on Equinix Metal.

Equinix Metal is the company's interconnected and secure bare metal service that provides a fully automated way for customers to take advantage of Platform Equinix via its DevOps and open-source integrations.

"Kubernetes is the go-to deployment substrate for new and evolving applications," said Equinix Metal senior director of developer relations Mark Coleman.

"While Kubernetes initially matured in the public cloud with developer-first companies, leaders across all industries are increasingly utilising it to accelerate their move toward the edge and operate complex hybrid and multicloud infrastructures. Offering first-class support for Kubernetes on Equinix Metal through a wide variety of partners helps our global customers move faster while maintaining flexibility."

Suse president of engineering and innovation Sheng Liang said "Providing our customers with an intuitive experience when running cloud-native workloads across diverse infrastructure has been core to the Rancher value proposition since the beginning of the Kubernetes story. Having partnered with the Equinix Metal team since the early days, it's great to see their reach grow alongside Suse Rancher's.

"With Equinix Metal available in global metro locations, our customers can deploy Suse Rancher to span from core data centre through near edge, and then go all the way to the far edge with K3s."

Canonical vice president of global alliances, public cloud and channels Regis Paquette said "As a long-time Equinix partner, we have witnessed the wide adoption of Ubuntu on Equinix Metal.

"The integration of Canonical's Charmed Operator framework with Equinix Metal provides a multicloud orchestration solution for traditional and cloud native workloads with bare metal performance. We are excited our partnership now also allows us to provide a managed Kubernetes service on Equinix Metal for customers who prefer to focus on the applications and business outcomes only."
