Deckhouse Kubernetes Platform
Deckhouse Platform allows you to create homogeneous Kubernetes clusters anywhere and fully manages them. It supplies all necessary addons to provide auto-scaling, observability, security, and service mesh.
  • Fully identical
    Kubernetes anywhere
  • Day 1 success
    with Kubernetes
  • Available in
    Community Edition &
    Enterprise Edition

Why do I need Deckhouse Platform?

  • Focus on application development. Your infrastructure becomes just a well-known API that is transparent and fully managed everywhere (any clouds, bare metal servers or hybrid).
  • Build and update apps quickly. Benefit from a true CI/CD enabler.
  • Deploy & test new features with no limits: create new environments whenever you want.
  • Enjoy automated canary deployments and service mesh with Istio.
  • Boost your observability with easy to use dashboards.
  • Use custom metrics for out-of-the-box autoscaling.
  • Forget about low-level Kubernetes machinery and focus on real DevOps and SRE, but not infrastructure itself.
  • Run ready-to-use Kubernetes clusters in less than 10 minutes.
  • Roll out fully identical clusters anywhere: bare metal servers, private or public clouds.
  • Leverage integrated and ready-to-use HPA for your apps.
  • Never miss important updates from upstream Kubernetes, certificate renewals, etc.
  • Get out-of-the-box security features including single sign-on, support for external authentication providers, and role-based access control.
  • Leverage the latest containerisation technology to build cutting edge services and products.
  • Shorten time-to-market with the properly rolled out & maintained Kubernetes.
  • Boost teams efficiency by 300% equipping them with the best OSS tools for Kubernetes.
  • Save on infrastructure with automatic downscaling. Consume only what is needed at the moment.
  • Get a platform based on upstream Kubernetes and Open Source core avoiding a vendor lock-in.

What makes Deckhouse Platform special?


  • System software on the nodes (kernel, CRI, kubelet, etc.) is automatically managed.
  • Kubernetes core software (control plane, etcd, certificates, etc.) is automatically managed.
  • Kubernetes platform components are automatically managed.
  • Bug-free Kubernetes as all components are regularly updated (delay from upstream is less than 1 month).
  • To upgrade Kubernetes to another minor version, you need to change one line in your configuration. Upgrades to new patch versions are made automatically.

SLA by design

  • Thanks to NoOps approach and everything carefully tested before being released, reliability is our cornerstone.
  • Thus, we can provide SLA even without direct access to your infrastructure — 99,95%*.
    • * To achieve this, the architecture of your clusters should be approved by our engineers and our guidelines should be followed.
    • * This applies to the Enterprise Edition only.

Runs anywhere

  • Clusters are infrastructure-agnostic since they can be deployed on a public cloud of your choice (AWS, GCP, Microsoft Azure, OVH Cloud) or even bare metal servers.
  • Self-hosted cloud solutions (OpenStack and vSphere) are also supported*.
  • Kubernetes clusters created with Deckhouse are entirely identical no matter which underlying infrastructure is in use. All platform features & modules are available everywhere.

Industry trusted solution

  • It’s 100% vanilla Kubernetes since we follow the upstream version of Kubernetes.
  • Based on shell-operator & addon-operator Open Source projects that have been around for 2+ years and adopted by various vendors.
  • Avoid vendor lock-in as the core of the platform and CE is free and Open Source.
    • The EE edition development process is also public (on GitHub) and all source code is open (but not free).

Kubernetes, the easy way

  • Deploying Deckhouse is extremely simple: a couple of CLI commands and 8 minutes are all you need to get production-ready Kubernetes.
  • Ready-to-use configurations for each cloud provider are available — just choose the one that fits best for you.
  • Even deploying on bare metal is not a big deal anymore.

Feature-complete platform

  • Get auto-scaling, observability, security, service mesh right out of the box!
    • You can get a more comprehensive understanding of modules available in Deckhouse via documentation.
  • Kubernetes has a lot to offer, but this choice followed by further configuration, integration, and maintenance becomes a real challenge. Overcome it with Deckhouse!
    • Our basic principles are feature-complete Kubernetes, the integrity of all components, and simplicity not limiting flexibility.

    Deckhouse vs KaaS


  • Deckhouse provides an advanced set of tools to create a genuinely secure production environment.

    Learn more about security
  • We use secure software for all platform components. All images get pulled strictly from the Deckhouse repository. A set of strict policies and restrictions controls the interaction of cluster components and the platform.
  • The features of the platform include:
    • secure access to the cluster and components;
    • flexible management of network policies;
    • auditing K8s events;
    • managing TLS certificates;
    • automatic updating of platform and cluster components;
    • monitoring CVEs for the software used.

Success stories from our clients

Main business
Individual nutrition plans platform.
Used Kubernetes under kOps before. Auto de-scaling was mandatory to control the costs of cloud infrastructure. Demanded increased stability of the Kubernetes clusters due to previous unexpected downtimes.
G-Plans has moved services to Kubernetes clusters created with the Deckhouse platform, enjoying our autoscaling module, and increased the services’ stability by reducing the downtime to desired SLA level (99,96%).
Main business
Smart trading terminal and auto trading bots for cryptocurrency exchanges, designed to increase profits while reducing risk and minimizing loss for traders.
3Commas deployed all microservices on VMs, lacking scalability and robustness under fast-growing traffic.
3Commas selected Deckhouse as the most convenient NoOps Kubernetes platform benefiting from autoscaling for a constantly growing business.
