Kubernetes: The Easy Way
OpsGuru enables organizations to easily navigate the complex cloud-native adoption process. Kubernetes has emerged as the de-facto standard for cloud-native platforms which enable fast, cost-efficient and scalable deployment practices across public and private clouds. 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, Azure and Google Cloud provide managed Kubernetes services, while enterprise Kubernetes platforms (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 oen cannot afford.
Difficult to Integrate
Kubernetes oen requires its own set of tools However, integrating next-generation tools and platform to existing processes is oen 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 oen 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?
The underlying compute, network resources that support and complement the capabilities of Kubernetes.
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 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.
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.
