FAQs about MetaKube Core by SysEleven

Container as a Service (CaaS) is a cloud service that runs and manages containerized applications. It involves providing the infrastructure, platform, and support to run containers. It also performs tasks such as provisioning, scaling, and monitoring containers.

Kubernetes as a Service (KaaS) is a cloud service that provides a managed Kubernetes environment. With KaaS, containerized applications can be deployed and managed in a Kubernetes cluster without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure. The cloud provider takes care of tasks such as provisioning, scaling, and monitoring the cluster. They can also provide additional features such as automatic upgrades and user authentication.


That means CaaS is a way to run and manage containers in the cloud, while KaaS is a way to use Kubernetes in the cloud to manage containerized applications.
