Our Kubernetes Consulting Services
Our engineers provide immediate value, jumping right in to help deliver scalable container management strategies and solutions. We offer comprehensive Kubernetes consulting services, focused on driving efficiency and performance.
Our Kubernetes consultants guide businesses through the process of implementing Kubernetes. From architectural design and configuration selection to setting up the control plane and nodes, we ensure your Kubernetes setup is robust, scalable, and tailored to your business needs. We also assist with the integration of Kubernetes with cloud platforms like AWS, Google Cloud, or Azure, leveraging services like Amazon EKS or Google Kubernetes Engine
We conduct a thorough evaluation to determine which applications to containerize and how to package them effectively. This includes defining optimal base images, managing dependencies, setting up environment variables, and scripting necessary commands within the Dockerfile for automated and consistent builds.
Our engineers have a lot of experience migrating existing applications from various environments into Kubernetes. We ensure a smooth transition with minimal downtime, carefully managing the migration of data, and re-architecting applications as needed to take full advantage of Kubernetes’ capabilities.
Our approach to Kubernetes cluster deployment involves optimizing resource allocation and node health. We manage service discovery through Services and Ingress rules, and efficiently distribute traffic with load balancers to ensure your applications are highly available and performant.
We specialize in leveraging Kubernetes for DevOps, setting up continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipelines, and automating deployment processes. We also focus on performance optimization, setting up proper resource requests and limits for pods, and using rolling updates for zero-downtime deployments.
Security and Compliance
Our Kubernetes consultants ensure your environment is secure and compliant by implementing Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for authentication, creating network policies to restrict pod communication, managing secrets securely, and advising on secure container image creation.
How Kubernetes Consulting Services Work at ProDev
No matter where you are in your Kubernetes project lifecycle, we’re here to support you. Whether you require an individual specialist or a comprehensive team to manage complex container orchestration, we provide three flexible engagement models at competitive prices to suit your needs.
Kubernetes Staff Augmentation Services
Best when managing the project in-house and combining our resources with internal staff
Whether you’re tackling complex container orchestration or navigating a full-scale Kubernetes project our staff augmentation services enable rapid, reliable team expansion.

Outsourced Kubernetes Consulting Services
Best if you need project management support in addition to staff augmentation services
With our comprehensive outsourced engineering services, you get more than just a team; you get a strategic partnership. We’ll manage every aspect of your Kubernetes project, from architecture design to application management and everything in between. Our team is with you from start to finish, making the shift to a Kubernetes-based environment smooth and hassle-free.
Project Ideation and Product Design
Best if you’re not ready for development yet and need some help getting your project started
If you have an idea for a Kubernetes-based project but need guidance on how to proceed, we’re here to help. Our consultants can turn your concept into a robust, scalable solution. Post-design, choose to drive development independently or leverage our Kubernetes experts for seamless, efficient project execution.
Our 5-Step Process
Regardless of the engagement model you’re interested in, every ProDev partnership follows a 5-Step Process
Request a discovery call and we’ll schedule time to talk through your project, your goals, and your staff augmentation needs.
The Master Services Agreement lays a foundation for the relationship and enables the candidate-screening process – it in no way obligates you to continue nor is there any payment due at this stage.
We will match candidates to your needs and present them to you – or if you like we can just make what we think is the best assignment and proceed.
Once the team is defined, one resource or several, we capture the team details and effort scope in an SOW. This simple and short document attaches to the MSA and we can add SOW’s downstream as needed.
Next up is a kickoff call and then the magic starts to happen. We absolutely do not simply throw bodies over the wall – we stay engaged closely with you as the work proceeds through regular communication and reporting. You get to see and test deliverables as they evolve.

Good Java developers are busy developers, so it might take us up to 1-2 weeks to present candidates; that said, we work in a dynamic landscape and sometimes we can deploy within a few days.
Our Kubernetes developers remotely telecommute, but typically they are willing to meet in person to launch an engagement and to participate in periodic on-site reviews.
Yes, our Kubernetes developers will adopt a schedule friendly to your teams and offices.
In addition to other types of Software Development Services, we can staff UI/UX, Project Management, DevOps, and QA positions.
