At Sidero, we have a vision for Kubernetes

Kubernetes that lives up to its promise.

Secure.
Easy to deploy – anywhere.
Easy to manage, even across multiple locations and cloud providers.

Inherent Control. Infinite Adaptability.

Our Story

Kubernetes has revolutionized how applications run, and Sidero is building tools to bring that same transformation to the pieces underneath: the node operating system and the datacenter. We are bringing the manifest-and-controller design down the stack. We believe everything should be managed by API and controlled by specification.

Sidero was born out of real life Kubernetes experience – and problems. The founders had been running production K8s clusters for SaaS companies. Running K8s on a general purpose OS such as RHEL or Ubuntu required a lot of tools to ensure security, and frequent patching of the underlying operating system and packages. These operational headaches introduced fragility into the system.

Sidero was born to solve this. The first project was Talos OS, a radically new operating system, designed purely for Kubernetes. Minimal, hardened and immutable.

The Sidero platform automates the installation and security of K8s out of the box. 

It eases the work of deploying and managing bare metal, and running multiple clusters in multiple locations – all while guaranteeing security and integrity. Real life problems. Solved.

Why the names “Sidero” and “Talos OS”?

“Sidero” is a word meaning both iron and the stars. As Sidero simplifies running Kubernetes on iron (metal), and we’re shooting for the stars in creating the API managed datacenter, it seemed appropriate.

Talos was an automaton created by the Greek God of the forge to protect the island of Crete. He would patrol the coast and enforce laws throughout the land. We felt it was a fitting name for a security focused operating system designed to run Kubernetes.
