Catalyst Cloud announces CNCF certified Kubernetes platform

25 October, 2018

Catalyst Cloud has released New Zealand’s first Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) certified Kubernetes service.

As New Zealand’s leading innovator of true cloud computing, Catalyst Cloud provides the country’s most advanced and robust local cloud solutions.

The global CNCF Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program guarantees application portability and assures customers that Kubernetes APIs work as designed. The certification process puts Catalyst Cloud among the front runners of companies worldwide developing emerging international standards for cloud computing and providing a world-class solution to the New Zealand market.

“What makes Kubernetes interesting is how it makes cloud computing more accessible and easier to use. Until now, developers needed a lot of specialist knowledge to use cloud computing infrastructure. With a fully managed Kubernetes platform, developers can focus on their applications,” says Catalyst Cloud Managing Director, Bruno Lago.

In line with its strong commitment to business ethics and social responsibility, Catalyst Cloud has made all the code they developed to create their Kubernetes Service open source to benefit organisations here and worldwide.

“We’re extremely proud to be part of the global open source cloud computing movement,” says Lago. “We strongly believe that open standards and open competition are beneficial for everyone. Customers should stay with cloud computing providers because they are happy with their services, not because they are locked in.”

Catalyst Cloud has three data centres in New Zealand, enabling customers to minimise risk and increase business resiliency through the use of these geographically diverse regions.

The Catalyst Kubernetes Service makes it easy to deploy, manage, and scale Kubernetes clusters to run containerised applications. This allows for IT teams to fully automate the life-cycle of applications running on the cloud, becoming more agile with their workflows and maximising productivity.

Bruno will be speaking at the Cloud Innovation Summit this Wednesday 31 October 2018 about Kubernetes, the benefits it provides and the importance of the CNCF Certification for New Zealand businesses. Register here.
