Start heating homes with your Kubernetes!

Last month we gave an exciting talk at KubeCon about how we use Kubernetes to heat the Netherlands. We’re happy to share that you can now also run your Kubernetes clusters at Nerdalize!

Our Kubernetes offering is now in public beta for you to use. Create your next Kubernetes cluster in the Nerdalize portal and start heating homes with your pods.

These affordable clusters come with some great features:

Kubernetes support out-of-the-box

Heat homes with your private Kubernetes clusters.

Freely scale between 1 and 80 vCPUs

Flexibility to choose a cluster that fits your scale at the press of a button.

More affordable than the rest

With € 0.026 per vCPU hour we’re cheaper than other providers. Check our full pricing here.

Multi-cloud dashboard included

We offer a multi-cloud dashboard, so you can use other providers or your on-premise cluster as well.

If you register for an account you’ll get free access to 8 vCPU to try out in our Playground cluster.

Do you need more capacity? Add your payment details to get your own multi-cloud dashboard and start using Kubernetes at Nerdalize or other cloud providers or try our easy-to-use Nerd tool.

Our new and improved Nerd CLI is here

We have some exciting news to share with you. We just released a new and completely overhauled version of our Nerd CLI!

After introducing our beta a while back we’ve received great feedback from many of our users. Taking all this input into account, both minor and major issues, we’ve revamped our Nerd CLI.

A couple of the major improvements:

  • Easy Windows installer — Get running even faster.
  • Give your jobs and datasets a name — Stop struggling with difficult identifiers.
  • One command to rule them all — Upload a dataset, start a job and get it to run in just one step.

You can find the full release notes for the second release candidate on our Github.

We’re again looking for users to try Nerd for free. When you’ve registered, download Nerd and login to start your first job by running:

  1. Login

    $ nerd login
    
  2. Run your first job

    $ nerd job run --name=co2-calc nerdalize/co2-calculator
    

If you have any feedback or questions, keep sending them over!

Running Python scripts in the cloud — Super easy!

At Nerdalize, we’re trying to make computing as easy and straightforward as possible. Last month we released a Python Docker image that allows you to run your scripts without creating a custom image. You can just upload your script, requirements.txt and data files and run it right away. We’ve got a Python 2 and a Python 3 version, both of which are built on the official Python Docker image.

Don’t have an account for the testing period? You can use the following promo code for early access: try-python.

Try our example script: The CO2 calculator

We also created a nifty little CO2 calculator that you can use to try out our Python image. Just follow the quickstart to calculate how much CO2 is saved by Nerdalize each year. It’ll show you:

1) Total CO2 savings in kilograms and travel distances (by car, train & plane). For example, for just a few households, the reduction of CO2 emissions is equal to almost 4 car trips 🚗 around the world 🌎. The CO2 calculator will give you the exact number.

2) A chart showing how many airplane trips you could make to various destinations.

Already over 200 people have claimed their free access to the cloud platform, which means that there are only 100 spots left for the testing period! The more people use our cloud, the more houses we can heat with computing power.

Claim your free 8 vCPU and test drive our CLI

As a beta user, you can run your compute jobs on the Nerdalize platform for free! To claim your free access, I’ve created a promo code for you: hottest-cloud-provider

With this promo code, you’ll get free access to your own 8 vCPU cluster during the testing period. To make test driving our beta version easy, there are several quickstarts available for you.

Use our quickstart guides to get started

Give Python a spin — We made a Python quickstart guide to easily get started with running your Python scripts.

Bring your own image — Simply: register, install the CLI, (read the instructions) and get started.
