Weave Kubernetes Platform
Make the most of Kubernetes for application delivery. Whether getting started or scaling multiple production systems, Weaveworks can help with expert advice, support and tools. Our GitOps based approach is proven to accelerate delivery on all infrastructure while introducing developer best practices and policy.Request a demo
Cloud native agility and reliability with GitOps
Spin up complete clusters on demand with everything needed for production applications on upstream open source or cloud managed Kubernetes. Use GitOps to securely increase velocity and to automate policy. Upgrade, patch and secure fleets and pipelines directly from audited and managed configurations.
Curated open source platform
Create a complete Kubernetes platform that combines pure upstream open source Kubernetes from a curated set of platform components with GitOps. WKP’s component based approach covers everything from storage, and networking through to monitoring and management.
Pure upstream innovation
WKP supports, secures and manages upstream Kubernetes and also integrates with managed options such as EKS. Since WKP doesn’t rely on forked or diverged versions, easily patch, upgrade and update cluster add-ons and Kubernetes with GitOps.
Complete cluster lifecycle management
With GitOps at the heart of any operational model, easily manage and configure clusters. Simplify cluster configuration management and create reproducible clusters across teams.
Policy and security
Operate Kubernetes securely and reliably to easily meet business compliance regulations. With policy and rule-based GitOps workflows, specify, audit and control who can change what to the Kubernetes configuration.
Multi-cloud and on-premises
Run Kubernetes anywhere, whether on VM’s, bare metal or public and managed clouds like EKS, AKS and GKE. Reduce complexity by using the same declarative approach across multiple environments.
Profiles and fleet management
Manage many clusters as easily as one. Use profiles to specify classes with all components, then deploy a new cluster with just a single click.
Instant dashboards and GitOps alerts
Gain a single view of the health and state of the cluster and its workloads. Configure dashboards to send alerts when either a cluster state or a workload state has changed.
Agility doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Gain advice on integrating Kubernetes into existing systems to ease migration. Navigate the constraints of enterprise systems as Weaveworks helps you steer the right course.

We’re seeing explosive growth in enterprise Kubernetes adoption, but there’s a knowledge gap between adoption and implementation. With its new offering Weaveworks is packaging its products and services to help enterprises accelerate their moves to cloud natives tools, methods and processes.
What’s covered in the Weave Kubernetes Platform?
The platform includes support for installing Kubernetes and operating a cluster as well as Kubernetes components and services such as networking, storage, ingress, secrets and templating. See the WKP datasheet for additional details.
What makes it different?
Weaveworks experience and skillset resides in operating Kubernetes as a production system. From those experiences a set of workflows to install, upgrade and run Kubernetes in production environments, known as GitOps was developed. Combine Weave Kubernetes Platform with our application management solution, Weave Cloud to get a complete system for developing and running Kubernetes-based workloads.
What Cloud platforms does Weave Kubernetes Platform support?
Run open source Kubernetes on AWS, GCP and Azure or use WKP with managed Kubernetes like GKE and EKS. WKP also supports customers who are using other public clouds such as Digital Ocean but its installation and setup is unvalidated.
How can you help with Amazon’s EKS, Google’s GKE or Microsofts AKS?
Managed Kubernetes from Amazon, Google and Microsoft remove the operations drag of building and updating core Kubernetes. Teams who need to run Kubernetes or who need to provide application infrastructure - the Weaveworks expert team can provide advice on specifying the right policies troubleshooting service problems.
How do you support on-premises installs of Kubernetes?
For enterprise customers who need to deploy Kubernetes in their datacenter, WKP installs pure upstream Kubernetes on Ubuntu or RedHat.
How is pure, open source Kubernetes supported?
Kubernetes and the Cloud Native landscape are moving very fast with a constant flow of new features. Weaveworks feels that the best version of Kubernetes to use is the pure upstream version, where the last two major release streams (e.g. 10.x and 9.x) are supported ensuring customers can progressively upgrade and quickly take advantage of new features.
Will WKP support integrating Kubernetes with other vendors?
Many customers have existing investments across networking, storage and other enterprise technology. Weaveworks works with customers to integrate Kubernetes with their existing systems. Where an issue is caused by an interaction between Kubernetes and another vendors system, as long as both elements are under an appropriate support contract, Weaveworks will work with both the customer and the third-party vendor to resolve.
How does it work if I have both a development and production cluster?
As long as the development cluster size is below 8 nodes then the price is 12,000 USD. The price for a production system is 3,000 USD per node, depending on the size of the cluster.
Will you install Kubernetes for customers?
Weaveworks can design, install and set-up Kubernetes clusters’ for customers as professional services engagements. Combined with Kubernetes quickstart and training programs, customers can fast track and accelerate the cloud native journey.
