Microservices, simplified

We make it easy to run agile, resilient, and secure distributed systems at scale.

Introduction to our Managed Kubernetes Infrastructure

Features to Get You Excited

Complete Infrastructure Ready To Go

Giant Swarm comes as a complete solution with advanced infrastructure components like distributed storage, overlay networking, and key management.

Recipes For Getting Started Quickly

Monitoring, Logging, Dashboards, CI/CD, Chatops, everything is just a quick recipe away, and if you have special requirements or just favor a different solution, changing a recipe is as easy as forking a GitHub repo.

Full Control Over Your Kubernetes

Giant Swarm manages the core, while you decide how you use your Kubernetes cluster including privileged access. But be aware, with giant power comes giant responsibility ;-)

Modular with Best-of-Breed Technologies

Giant Swarm is integrated with best-of-breed open source technologies and allows for easy changes within the stack.

Open Source By Default

Giant Swarm is committed to open source, be that third party technologies like CoreOS Container Linux, Docker, and Kubernetes or our own automation and integration tools.

Datacenter Agnostic (on-premises and clouds)

No matter if in our datacenter or on-premises in yours, in public or private clouds, or even in a hybrid or multi-cloud model. Giant Swarm keeps you flexible.

Enterprise Ready

Giant Swarm works behind firewalls and supports multi-zoning as well as advanced compliance and security requirements. On top of that we integrate with your existing tooling and processes.

Our Platform

The Giant Swarm platform consists of various components that can be broadly categorized into three areas: infrastructure, operations, and applications. Next to open source products from various leading companies in the ecosystem, we develop our own tools that interact with, automate, and manage the infrastructure and its components.

Use Cases

Distributed Applications

Create distributed applications by breaking your application apart into decoupled services that can be built and scaled separately.

Application Modernization

Re-architect part of an existing, older application towards a modern microservices architecture.


Setup your CI/CD pipeline and enable your developers to develop faster by automating testing and rollouts to QA, staging, and production environments.


Break down barriers between Dev and Ops teams by improving communication flows and having clear responsibilities to ultimately boost the application development process.

Multi-Cloud Deployments

Deploy your containers in the same way no matter which hosting model you choose - your preferred cloud, on-premise, or any kind of hybrid model.

Infrastructure Optimization

Increase efficiency by optimizing the use of infrastructure. Instant availability of compute resources enables quick iterations and creativity in your development team.

From four hours to four minutes: Neofonie reaps the benefits of microservices on Giant Swarm

Neofonie was tasked with breaking down a monolithic application into microservices for one of their bigger customers. By choosing Giant Swarm they could build up a continuous delivery pipeline, enabling them to deploy their microservices several times a day.

"With Giant Swarm we successfully implemented a continuous delivery pipeline within a few weeks. It saves us time and money."

—Jan De Cooman, former Lead Developer Neofonie
