Kubernetes is an open-source orchestration system for containers which automates management of containerized applications (primarily using Docker).

Kubernetes integrates with Brightbox Cloud in various ways.

Brightbox Kubernetes Cloud Controller

Our Cloud Controller plugin provides tighter integration between Brightbox Cloud and Kubernetes.

A Kubernetes ingress service is added that integrates with Brightbox to create Load Balancers on-demand, providing highly-available cross-zone load balancng, SSL acceleration and Let’s Encrypt certificate support.

And Brightbox-specific annotations are added to the nodes in Kubernetes, labelling them with the zone, image type and the cloud addressing details. So for example, you can deploy apps that understand about our multiple zones to ensure high availability across datacentres.

The code and documentation is available on Github.

Terraform configuration

We maintain a set of terraform configs to build a Kubernetes cluster on Brightbox Cloud, preconfigured with our cloud controller plugin.

The code is available on Github.
