Kubernetes Kapsule

An easy-to-use managed Kubernetes, fully integrated into our cloud ecosystem.

Quick scaling

Start creating your cluster of nodes, create your platform and scale up to 500 nodes in one click. Seconds later, your containers will be ready to deploy.

Fully managed

We manage all Kubernetes components, allowing your platform to run smoothly. We synchronize Instances, GPU, Block Storage, and Load Balancers to be driven by K8s controllers.

Simplify deployment

Develop and deploy a wide variety of containerized applications with managed Kubernetes, offering portability, availability, and stability to match all your teams’ needs.

K8s use cases

Build resilient applications

Replication and scaling are the major needs of hyper-growing IT solutions. Kubernetes Kapsule offers a stable, reliable K8s environment in which redundancy and auto-scaling are easy to implement.

Provision complex and high-performance architecture

CPU Instances to GPUs, Kubernetes Kapsule can manage any workload, and prevent drops in performance by adding as many nodes as needed to your clusters.

Deploy with ease

Deploy your applications in one click with Application library feature, manually write your YAML manifests, integrate your Kubernetes Kapsule cluster into your CI/CD pipeline, or manage your cluster through Terraform.



to build an operational and production-ready Kubernetes environment.

Key features
Key features

All the components are fully managed, from the cloud controller manager to the auto-scaler.


Each node pool in a cluster can automatically scale up or down, adapting the number of nodes in your cluster to your workload.


Health checks run automatically to ensure your nodes are functioning well. If a node does not respond for more than 15 minutes, Kubernetes Kapsule will restart your node, or replace it if the issue persists.

Application Library

Integrate Helm charts configurations in a few clicks, directly from the Scaleway console, and run pre-configured container images.

Frequently asked questions

What is Kubernetes Kapsule?

Kubernetes Kapsule is a managed Kubernetes engine to host containerized applications. It is available in our Paris (France), Amsterdam (Netherlands) & Warsaw (Poland) Availability Zones.

Which Kubernetes versions are supported?

Kubernetes Kapsule supports at least the latest version of the last three major K8s releases.
The service also provides a maintenance scheduler to automatically set up Kubernetes version upgrades.

How much am I billed for one cluster?

The price of the service will depend on the resources you allocate to your cluster, such as the number and type of nodes, the use of load balancers and persistent volumes. Nodes are billed at the same price as the underlying Compute Instances. The K8s control plane is provided without additional costs.

How much am I billed if I have enabled auto-scaling?

By definition, a managed Kubernetes engine such as Kubernetes Kapsule can delete, replace, or restart the nodes of your cluster to ensure the availability of your applications. This means that Kubernetes clusters’ nodes are to be considered stateless, and storing data locally might lead to a data loss. For stateful applications, you need to use Kubernetes persistent volumes objects. The storage class for Block Storage volumes is set by default, so it does not need to be specified.

Why can't I connect to my nodes using SSH?

Kubernetes Kapsule manages your nodes. To ensure the behavior of your cluster, it is not possible to perform actions directly on the nodes. There is no need to connect to them directly, as all actions and configurations should be done using Kubernetes (from the console, kubectl command, or Kapsule APIs).
