A modern OS for Kubernetes

Efficient, API-driven, and purpose-built for Kubernetes, Talos lets you treat the cluster as the machine, so you can focus on your applications instead of managing the OS.

What is Talos?

Talos is a modern operating system for Kubernetes with some unique characteristics designed to ensure security, consistency, and performance.

Our CEO explains some of the important differences between Talos and legacy operating systems and why we started the company.
