  • Virtual networks for connecting container instances
  • Load balancing of traffic to User Applications
  • An application catalog with templates for ready-to-use common applications
  • Features for replication, rolling updates, auto-recovery and auto-scaling of User Applications
  • Basic default domain name and TLS for hosted User Applications (under rahtiapp.fi)

Users can manage their resources using a web interface accessible through a web browser and through a set of APIs which allow programmatic management of resources. In order to access and use the service the User must have a CSC user account.

The User's applications are isolated from other Users’ applications from a network, storage and computational view.
