Our Supergiant University Kubernetes training program includes learning tracks for all skill levels. Whether you are a Kubernetes newbie or an advanced user, you can find a course that matches your needs.
Absolutely. All Supergiant University courses involve labs for students to get hands-on experience with building and managing Kubernetes clusters. In K8S 101, students create a pet cluster, from scratch, with which they work throughout all of the tracks (if starting after K8S 101, a cluster is provided). They steadily expand and build on it, adding new features and apps.
Our courses are delivered by Kubernetes experts experienced with microservices, CI/CD, DevOps culture, and cloud-native technologies. All of our trainers hold CKA certifications from The Linux Foundation and CNCF.
They'll just need any device with an application installed that can SSH. This can be Linux or OS X (using BASH, for example), Windows (using PuTTY, for example), or any other solution that supports SSH.
Yes. We’re open to specific training requirements and can assist in designing a program that perfectly meets your business needs.
You can submit a short form with your contact phone, and we’ll get back to you to discuss details.
Supergiant is a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider with a CNCF-proven track record of helping enterprises successfully adopt Kubernetes. We boast one of the highest concentrations of CKA and CKAD talent with the experience of administering large-scale production clusters and the passion to transfer knowledge.
As of Supergiant 2.1, we support AWS, GCE, Microsoft Azure, and Digital Ocean cloud accounts.
At this time, we support only cloud-based Kubernetes clusters, but we are planning to add the on-premises option in future releases.
Supergiant 2.1 uses a kubeadm-backed cluster provisioning configured according to user preferences and best practices for provisioning a reliable, secure, and Highly Available Kubernetes clusters.
Yes. Starting with Supergiant 2.1, you can import AWS clusters and manage them with Supergiant Control. Our goal is to support any upstream K8s cluster so the import tool should work with any cloud provider.
Supergiant Toolkit is not a Kubernetes distribution. Our goal is to simplify provisioning and managing upstream Kubernetes components. At the same time, we deploy additional workloads for monitoring, auditing, application management, service discovery, and more. However, it’s up to users how to extend and manage their Kubernetes clusters with Supergiant.
Yes, you can. Supergiant provisions an upstream Kubernetes that can be managed with any native client tools. After a cluster is created, we provide all access information and kubeconfig details for you to easily set up kubectl and work with your cluster outside of Supergiant and avoiding any vendor lock-in.
Yes. We support many aspects of the Kubernetes High Availability out of the box. In particular, we ensure HA of Kubernetes components (kube-dns, kube-proxy), etcd, and cloud load balancers. Certain aspects of K8s HA like multi-master HA depend on the user setup.
No. At this time, we only support Docker containers.
At this time, we only support Linux distributions for master and worker nodes.
Absolutely. Supergiant Service Catalog allows adding custom Helm repositories in one click.
Yes. Cluster autoscaling is implemented in the Supergiant Capacity tool. It can select the most suitable machine types for your workloads based on the cost-effective packing algorithm developed by our team.
Not yet, but we are actively working on adding this feature in the next releases.
