Pivotal Container Service (PKS) is an enterprise Kubernetes platform, architected for rapid results, scaling, and reliability on any infrastructure. It allows you to reliably deploy and run containerized workloads across private and public clouds.


It gives you the flexibility to deploy and consume Kubernetes on premises with vSphere, or on the public cloud. And because Enterprise PKS is powered by BOSH, you get a reliable and consistent operational experience on any cloud.

Open Source

It is constantly compatible with the latest stable release of Google Kubernetes Engine, with no proprietary extensions.

Production Ready 

It is available up and down the stack, from application to infrastructure. The service also includes dynamic load balancing, zero downtime updates, automated health checks, and much more.

On-Demand Provision

It deploys K8s clusters on-demand through the command line (CLI) and API using BOSH, a powerful release engineering toolchain.

Network Management and Security

It includes NSX-T to manage software-defined virtual networks, and to keep your K8s network secure.

Integration with VMware Tools

It Integrates Enterprise PKS with VMware tools like vRealize Operations Manager, vRealize Log Insights, and Wavefront for a full-featured on-prem deployment.

More Services

It enhances your containers with a library of add-on services. Easily add APM tools, database services, and more with the Open Service Broker API and Kubernetes Service Catalog.
