Proof of Concept

Try it yourself

Sidero software is open source, so you have options when it comes to testing it out.

Start a Self Directed or Assisted Trial

Assisted Trial

The most efficient way to see if the Sidero suite is right for your organization is a guided proof of concept.

Working with one of our engineers, you define the scope for a meaningful evaluation, success criteria, even other products you may want to consider.

You will plan, then install Kubernetes in your infrastructure. The Sidero engineer will be on hand to guide, advise, answer questions and make nerdy jokes.*

Most customers can set up a complete Sidero environment within a few hours.

*Note: our engineers are hired for technical skill, not humor. Jokes may not actually be funny.

To start a Guided POC, just let us know how to contact you:

Self Directed trial

Want to try Sidero and Talos Linux out by yourself? No problem. We recommend the following steps.

Test Drive Talos Linux

  • Install Talos Linux on your local machine in Docker, using the Quickstart guide. This will give you a fully functioning Kubernetes cluster, and allow you to experience the power of an API managed operating system.
  • Join our community on Slack or Matrix to ask quick questions.
  • Get support at GitHub Discussions.

Deploy on Bare Metal, Cloud, Hypervisors or SBCs:

Once you are ready to deploy a Kubernetes cluster on “real” infrastructure:

If you run into any issues, the Sidero team is happy to help. Reach out via Slack or Matrix, or contact us, and we can setup a call to work through any problems.

The assisted trial process taught me a lot about Kubernetes, and what to look out for. The Sidero team genuinely wanted to solve my problems.
