Heptio Kubernetes® Subscription
A fully supported Kubernetes deployment with the assurance and stability of a distribution, but the control and flexibility of open source.
Heptio Kubernetes Subscription (HKS) is a production-grade deployment of Kubernetes, supported 24×7 by Heptio. HKS is based on a customized but proven reference architecture centered on upstream Kubernetes, bolstered by Heptio open source tools that fill key gaps in the Kubernetes ecosystem to improve usability. We provide advisory support so you can avoid issues in the first place, and break-fix support for when issues do occur.
No vendor lock-in
We deliver the enterprise grade support you need to safely run your business on open source Kubernetes, without forcing you to accept vendor lock-in.
Run Kubernetes anywhere
Heptio supports deployments on premises or on any major public cloud offering, so you retain the flexibility to run workloads where you want.
Use the tech of your choice
We deliver a strong baseline solution built on open source technology, with the flexibility to adapt or tune your environment to meet unique enterprise operating requirements.
Open source tools
Heptio designs and builds tools that improve the cost and complexity of running Kubernetes; examples include Heptio Ark, Heptio Sonobuoy, and Heptio Contour.
We deliver hot patches to ensure your cluster is production hardened, and work with the community to ensure the fixes are included in the next Kubernetes release.
Our support subscriptions are SLA-driven. Business Critical support offers online service available 24x7x365 and Business Day support offers 6 am-6 pm PST service.

“As Netskope built a Kubernetes-based infrastructure to power our market-leading security platform we chose Heptio to support our production clusters because we strategically value the flexibility and control inherent in staying close to the Kubernetes community.”
