Insight: Kubernetes

Companies use Kubernetes and containers to create a modern application architecture. In this architecture, software is broken down into smaller parts with specialized tasks and housed in containers.

A container orchestration platform is needed to run containers. Kubernetes has become the standard. Companies use the platform to configure, manage and scale.

Benefits of containers


Containers and Kubernetes can bring many benefits to businesses, such as reducing time spent troubleshooting. It can be assumed that a container behaves the same across test and production environments. Functions and services can be developed separately to increase productivity.

Many IT vendors have jumped into Kubernetes by fleshing out the platform with proprietary technology. Well-known examples are Red Hat OpenShift and VMware Tanzu. This insight covers the options available and what to look out for.
