Talos Platform Features

Talos is mostly open source, but some features are available only with a commercial license. We also offer support and professional services including custom consulting, development, and training.

If you are just getting started with Talos, or need extra help with your open source deployment of Talos and Kubernetes, we are offering a Starter Kit package with ticket and Slack-based support for small installations.
