LSD Open’s core focus is to help accelerate our clients into the future. Starting in 2001 as a Linux company before anyone else was doing this in South Africa. After many years and building up a reputation for solving complex problems, LSD Open moved into automation (Before DevOps was a thing).
In 2015 our technical team started playing with Kubernetes version 1.0. We knew this would change would everything! We started working hard on fully understanding Kubernetes and deployed one of the first Enterprise ready clusters in South Africa for a large insurance company. By always using tomorrow's technology today, we want to work on exciting projects and solve the problems no one else can take on.
We are now CNCF Silver members and a Certified Kubernetes Service Provider and more than 20 CKA and CKAD certifications.
We are partnered with the largest Kubernetes vendors, working closely with them to take our clients on their application modernisation journey.

When we first start to engage with a client, we need to understand what they need to do, what problems they are trying to solve and what value can LSD Open Offer.
LSD Open wants to ensure that our skills are the correct skills for your specific problem. LSD do not want to try to force our solutions or technology where they do not fit and are not the best solution. Next we do our presentations, Demonstrations and proposal presentations. This is the general sales process where we discuss what you can expect from our offering, we discuss commercials and terms. We take you through our proposal, making sure we are all in agreement with regards to scope, timelines and pricing. This process is done once we have received a PO to continue on to the next stage.
Here we start to architect and Design of the platform. During this phase we also start to onboard the teams that will be deploying and managing your new platform. Once the designs and sizing has been signed off, we deploy.
Once the platform is operational, we move into the monthly management and support phase. We ensure that there is constant feedback between us so we can make sure we continue to add the value you expect and that we are meeting your expectations.
