Key metrics of control components are visualized to analyze results and prevent risks. 2. Secure clusters: In the control plane, etcd uses encrypted storage by default. In the data plane, the KMS plug-in can be installed to enable secrets encryption at rest. Security management is supported to enable comprehensive security detection and automatic recovery for running containers. 3. Intelligent scheduling: kube-scheduler provides enhanced scheduling performance and supports multiple intelligent scheduling algorithms. It can be used to schedule neural processing unit (NPU) resources. It can also be used to optimize container scheduling capabilities in scenarios, such as large-scale data computing and high-performance data processing. 4. SLA guarantee: An SLA that includes indemnification clauses is supported to guarantee 99.95% availability for each API server. 5. Supported billing methods include: Pay-as-you-go: USD 0.09/hour per cluster Subscription: USD 48.96/month per cluster
