Sidero Metal delivers Kubernetes on bare metal. Easily, securely, repeatably.
Walk in to a datacenter with just a laptop, and in minutes turn a rack of servers into secure, production ready, bare metal Kubernetes clusters.
For building multiple clusters or a private cloud, Sidero Metal is the right choice. (If you are looking to deploy just a few bare metal clusters, check out Sidero Omni for a simple SaaS solution, or boot Talos Linux directly.)
Once you have your first bare metal Kubernetes cluster created, it’s simple to migrate the Sidero management plane to the production cluster. You can then spin up other clusters in moments, and manage them all easily and securely.
See how Nokia uses Sidero Metal to provide an internal cloud at a large scale.
You can have a bare metal cluster running today!
Sidero Metal is a great tool for multi-cluster bare metal deployments. If you are only creating one cluster, it is simpler to just boot Talos Linux directly. See the Talos Linux Getting Started guide.
Want to try Sidero Metal and Talos Linux out by yourself? We recommend the following steps.
