BlakYaks, a Microsoft Azure specialist building, migrating and operating secure cloud-native platforms, is now a Kubernetes Certified Service Provider (KCSP).
By becoming a KCSP, BlakYaks joins a small group of service providers in the UK recognised for their excellence in helping organisations leverage the full potential of containers management platform Kubernetes.
The KCSP programme, managed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in partnership with the Linux Foundation, is a pre-qualified tier of vetted service providers who have deep experience helping enterprises successfully adopt Kubernetes.
Dirk Anderson, CEO at BlakYaks, said: “We are well-equipped to support customers' cloud-native transition programmes due to our team's relentless efforts. Following our Kubernetes on Microsoft Azure Specialist partner certification, our KCSP certification further demonstrates our commitment and focus in this vital customer market area."
BlakYaks' team of engineers deliver in-depth knowledge of the Kubernetes ecosystem, including its core components, best practices, and advanced deployment patterns. Leveraging this expertise, the company's solution portfolio (assess, plan, design, implement and operate) is tailored to meet the unique requirements of each customer, from initial assessment and planning to implementation and ongoing support.
“As a member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, BlakYaks demonstrates its commitment to promoting open-source principles and driving the adoption of cloud-native technologies," said Chris Aniszczyk, CTO of the CNCF.
"With its accreditation we are looking forward to collaborating with BlakYaks and benefiting from the knowledge and proficiency in deploying, configuring, and optimising Kubernetes clusters, which they will bring to the cloud native community."
