Kubernetes has become the de facto standard for container orchestration, providing organizations with scalability, flexibility, and portability for their modern application workloads. As adoption of Kubernetes has exploded, so has the cost of managing it and the criticality of ensuring its resilience and stability. Hence efficiently operating and optimizing Kubernetes environments has become a major priority.
That's where PerfectScale comes in. Our Kubernetes optimization platform right-sizes resources across complex deployments, helping organizations drastically optimize costs while continuously improving the performance, reliability, and efficiency of their Kubernetes clusters. And today, I'm excited to announce the launch of the PerfectScale Partner Program to empower partners to unlock more value for customers through Kubernetes right sizing and optimization.
Why Launch a PerfectScale Partner Program?
Since our founding, PerfectScale has remained laser-focused on our core mission - optimizing Kubernetes infrastructure end-to-end. Our technology combines real-time metrics with AI-driven analytics to provide actionable recommendations that keep Kubernetes environments continuously tuned.
While we've seen fantastic traction optimizing customer infrastructure directly, we know that engaging with partners expands our reach exponentially. Many organizations rely on trusted partners for assessing, deploying, and managing their Kubernetes environments.
By empowering partners to deliver PerfectScale's optimization capabilities, we can make an impact on even more Kubernetes deployments worldwide. That's why launching this new partner program is such a pivotal moment.
Our partner program equips partners with the tools, training, and support needed to right size and optimize customer Kubernetes environments using PerfectScale. This creates a true win-win - partners differentiate their offerings while customers benefit from maximized performance and cost-efficiency.
Who Can Join the PerfectScale Partner Program?
We designed the PerfectScale partner program to accommodate partners of all types who are engaged in the Kubernetes ecosystem.
Here are the main partner categories we support:
Referral Partners: Well-suited for organizations that want to refer PerfectScale into their customer or prospect ecosystem. This provides a straightforward way to add value with minimal time investment.
Reseller Partners: Optimized for partners that want to package and resell the PerfectScale platform directly to their customer base. Discounts and sales/technical enablement resources help drive partner profitability.
MSP Partners: Built for managed services providers who want to deliver PerfectScale's optimization as a Kubernetes managed service offering. Helps MSPs enhance their Kubernetes management practices.
Consulting Partners: Ideal for Kubernetes consultants who want to incorporate PerfectScale into their service delivery. Lead with a free Kubernetes health check and expands with capacity planning, optimization, and cost management capabilities.
This diverse partner ecosystem enables multiple collaboration models for driving Kubernetes optimization. Whether you want to refer opportunities, resell PerfectScale, or deliver it as a service - we've got you covered.

How Partners Accelerate Customer Success
PerfectScale partners play an invaluable role taking customers through their Kubernetes optimization journey. Partners have deep expertise that perfectly complements PerfectScale's technology capabilities.
Here are just some of the ways partners accelerate optimization success:
- Kubernetes Health Check and Assessments - Partners can conduct in-depth Kubernetes environment assessments for clients using PerfectScale to assess the health of their clusters and uncover optimization opportunities.
- Proof-of-Concept Deployments - Partners help implement POC deployments of PerfectScale for customers, proving out the value before larger rollouts.
- Optimization Sessions - partners conduct optimization sessions for customers to take action on the recommendations from PerfectScale.
- Ongoing Management - Partners can monitor PerfectScale and continuously tune Kubernetes environments on behalf of customers.
- Architecture Guidance - Partners develop Kubernetes and FinOps architectures and strategies optimized for high-efficiency resource usage and financial reporting.
- Integration Services - Partners integrate PerfecScale with the customer’s DevOps (e.g. ArgoCD, GitLab), observability (e.g. Grafana, DataDog), service management (e.g. JIRA, Service Now) and communication stack (e.g. Slack, Teams)
- Technical Training - Partners train client teams on Kubernetes and PerfectScale best practices for maintaining optimized environments.
- ROI Analysis - Partners can demonstrate and quantify PerfectScale's value through detailed cost/benefit analyses.
These are just a few examples - opportunities to deliver value are endless for creative partners who understand customers' infrastructure and business objectives.
