The Linode Kubernetes Engine combines Linode’s ease of use and simple pricing with the infrastructure efficiency of Kubernetes. You can now get your infrastructure and workloads up and running in minutes instead of days.
Using Linode Kubernetes Engine, you can configure, provision, and manage your Kubernetes clusters in a few easy steps.
Kubernetes Horizontal Pod Autoscaling scales your instances in real-time to meet changing demands, so you can effortlessly match your resources with your workload.
Automatically get the most out of your resources. Kubernetes seamlessly distributes containers across your cluster to ensure you get the most efficient utilization of your resources.
Harness the strong open source ecosystem of Kubernetes tooling. Linode Kubernetes Engine supports integration with popular K8s-related tools, such as Rancher, Helm, Operators, and more.
Enjoy the power of Kubernetes without breaking the bank. You only pay for Linodes, Nodebalancers, and Block Storage. You don’t pay a penny for your cluster’s master services.
Linode Kubernetes Engine comes with a complimentary Kubernetes Master to get your cluster up and running at no additional fee. This includes all of the Kubernetes control plane processes – including API, scheduler, resource controllers, and more.
Linode Kubernetes Engine pricing includes only the resources you consume – Linode VMs, NodeBalancers, and Volumes. Your cluster’s master services are free of charge.
Linode is part of the CNCF Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program. This certification means your Linode Kubernetes workloads conform to portability standards, and you'll always have access to the latest updates and features. Linode is a silver sponsor of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), where Kubernetes is a Graduated Project.

Once you have submitted your support ticket requesting access to the Linode Kubernetes beta program, you will receive a confirmation email. Once your first cluster is create, a $100/month credit will be added to your account. Credits will continue based on active clusters until the conclusion of the beta program, after which you will be responsible for any future infrastructure charges.
