Companies can no longer avoid containerized environments. With the rising adoption of cloud-native design patterns and automation, containers have become the preferred compute model for powering modern applications – a trend that blurs the lines between the application and infrastructure domains. This paradigm creates a growing problem in adapting “legacy” development models into the modern microservices and containerized applications. Organizations need to employ particular technical skill-sets and a modern approach to develop, deploy, and make the Kubernetes ecosystem a factory model for production. That’s why Microstack has made Kubernetes a priority in our service, offering industry best practices for all Kubernetes CI/CD lifecycle and security aspects:
● Build multi-zone, security-hardened private clusters
● Automated CI/CD processes
● Service Mesh
● RBAC (Role-Based Access Control)
Microstack breaks down monolith applications into pieces to make containerized, secured, and scalable microservices.
Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform that provides organizations with a wide range of benefits, including scalability, automation, flexibility, and security. Kubernetes enables organizations to scale their applications quickly and easily by providing automated horizontal and vertical scaling features. This means that as demand increases, Kubernetes can automatically allocate resources to ensure that the application runs smoothly.
In addition, Kubernetes automates the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications, which reduces the risk of human error and increases the efficiency of the deployment process. This automation also helps organizations to quickly adapt to changes in demand, without having to worry about managing infrastructure manually.
Kubernetes is also highly flexible, allowing organizations to use any infrastructure or cloud provider that supports Kubernetes. This flexibility gives organizations the freedom to choose the infrastructure that best suits their needs.
Finally, Kubernetes provides several security features, such as RBAC (Role-Based Access Control) and network policies, that help organizations secure their containerized applications. These security features help protect against cyber threats and ensure that applications are running securely.
Kubernetes has proven to be an indispensable tool for organizations looking to streamline their application development and deployment processes. With Kubernetes, organizations can rely on a container orchestration platform that automates many aspects of infrastructure management, freeing up time and resources that can be focused on developing and deploying their applications.One of the main benefits of Kubernetes is scalability. The platform provides automated scaling capabilities that enable organizations to easily adjust their application capacity based on demand, without worrying about manual infrastructure management. This allows organizations to focus on developing and deploying their applications while Kubernetes handles the underlying infrastructure.
Kubernetes also automates deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications, reducing the risk of human error and increasing efficiency. This automation reduces the distractions caused by infrastructure management, allowing organizations to focus on delivering high-quality applications to their customers.
Moreover, Kubernetes provides a standardized way of managing containerized applications. This reduces complexity and improves consistency across applications, further enabling organizations to focus on development and deployment without worrying about infrastructure management.
According to a survey conducted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in 2020, 83% of respondents are using Kubernetes in production, up from 78% in 2019.
Kubernetes is used by 91% of the Fortune 100 companies, according to the CNCF's 2021 survey.In 2020, Microsoft announced that more than 50% of Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) clusters were running in production.
Google Cloud reported that 70% of its top customers are using Kubernetes as of 2021.
Red Hat's State of Kubernetes survey in 2020 found that 77% of respondents were using Kubernetes in production.
In 2021, Amazon Web Services (AWS) reported that tens of thousands of customers were using Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS).Kubernetes enables organizations to rely on a platform that streamlines their application development and deployment processes, freeing up valuable time and resources that can be focused on building and delivering high-quality applications to their customers.
