Kubernetes -
the Gateway to Cloud Native 

OpsGuru prides itself as the enabler of cloud-native adoption, and Kubernetes plays a key role on the cloud-native adoption journey to maximize speed, cost-efficiencies and scalability.  

 
Why should you care about Kubernetes? 
The Rise of Containers 

Containers offer consistency across all environments, smaller footprint and lower operational overhead.  With the wide adoption of containers, you need a sophisticated container management platform -  Kubernetes is exactly that. 

Next-Level Cloud Economy

Containers can share kernel resources while maintaining isolation,  making it an ideal tool to run multiple workloads with only a fraction of compute resources.   To realize the cost-savings, you need a mechanism that can easily execute the isolated workloads,  maintaining security and manage resources - that's Kubernetes. 

Reduced Time to Market 

With Kubernetes as the underpinning platform, streamlining "Build, Deploy, Run" from development to production environments is a lot easier.   Using the standardized toolset across all environments and stages reduce time spent on training, handover and shorten the end-to-end delivery cycle 

Portability and Flexibility 

AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud provide managed Kubernetes services, while enterprises Kubernetes platform e.g. Anthos, OpenShift, Tanzu are getting popular for on-premise. With the wide support across cloud, hybrid and on-premise, Kubernetes is the perfect answer to portability and flexibility across vendors and geographies.

 
The Challenges to Adopt Kubernetes
Special Skill Set Required 

Kubernetes is infamous for its steep learning curve.  To successfully operate Kubernetes requires some deep understanding of its architecture, capabilities and design.  It requires the ramp-up time that teams often cannot afford.

Difficult to Integrate

Kubernetes often requires its own set of tools  However, integrating next-generation tools and platform to existing processes is often challenging technically and culturally. Meanwhile, successful adoption of Kubernetes depends heavily on succinct alignment with existing processes and organizational goals. 

Fast Pace of Change

A new minor version of Kubernetes is released every 3 months.  The cycle of learning about the changes, testing the release before rolling to production every few months require heavy investment and can be daunting to the engineering team that is already overstretched by feature requests. 

Diverse and Complex Ecosystem

Kubernetes is the gateway to cloud-native adoption.  New tools and projects are often created within the community to expand on the cloud-native capabilities.  To understand the purpose of the tools, to evaluate how well they align to your current and future needs and to decide whether you should invest in it takes a lot of time and effort. 

Growing Security Concerns 

As Kubernetes grows rapidly in popularity, it has become an attractive target for attack.  How to take advantage of Kubernetes without falling victim to security vulnerabilities should be every organization's concern. 

How OpsGuru can Help with your Kubernetes Adoption? 
Cloud-native Infrastructure

The underlying compute, network resources that support and complement the capabilities of Kubernetes. 

Kubernetes Configurations 

Finding the right Kubernetes distro, configuring it correctly for your security, availability and cost requirement will put you on the right path of success. 

Kubernetes Operations 

Kubernetes is an ecosystem with multiple components.  Daily operations include finding the right tools to collect logs and metrics, filter the telemetry data to alert and mitigate issues. 

Workload Operations

A pristine Kubernetes cluster is valueless if you don't have workloads running on it. We can help you fully leverage your Kubernetes clusters by deploying and operating workloads on the platform in ways to fully capitalize on your investment into Kubernetes .
