More efficient utilization of resources while reducing infrastructure costs at the same time

Complexity demands control: Kubernetes is becoming the standard for container management

The modularization of software is a prerequisite for flexibility and speed, but quickly leads to considerable complexity. An enormous number of containers have to be orchestrated and managed across different environments. This is where Kubernetes comes in.

What about the business benefits of Kubernetes?

The main advantage of Kubernetes arises from the ability to accelerate the provision of new functions, optimize the stability of the infrastructure and automate manual work in the construction and operation of container environments.

✅Accelerated time-to-market Cubernetes and containers enable homogeneous development, test and live environments and help to automate the deployment. This results in enormous advantages in terms of convenience and speed when making new releases available.

✅Multi-cloud capability and portability: Kubernetes and containers ensure that applications function largely independently of the environment. In this way, applications can be moved to different cloud platforms without affecting their functionality. Multi-cloud concepts can also be implemented in this way.

✅Better stability and availability Kubernetes ensures a higher degree of automation and thus greater robustness and less effort in incident management and troubleshooting. In addition, Kubernetes offers integrated self-healing functions.

✅Optimized costs and reduced effort Kubernetes enables an optimal packing density of different container-based applications and thus ensures more efficient utilization and use of resources. This reduces the infrastructure costs. In addition, infrastructure components and stacks can be reused, with the effect that personnel expenses are significantly reduced.

Kubernetes is a system developed as open source software for the provision, management and monitoring of a container environment, which has meanwhile established itself as the standard. It takes over the control of resources, guarantees the availability of the applications and helps to fully exploit the potential of containers. From a technical point of view, this makes Kubernetes an indispensable tool for managing a container environment. For this reason we are pleased to be able to offer a series of Kubernetes seminars: Certified Kubernetes Application Developer Webinar Series

The use of containers and Kubernetes is particularly suitable for all cloud applications that were developed from the start on the basis of a microservice architecture. In many companies we find an IT landscape with numerous existing applications. There we check the components of the application for their container readiness and portability. In practice, adjustments to the applications almost always have to be made in order to be able to really map a container scenario. Modernization does not always make sense.
