Agile provision of your applications in the cloud
Many companies now package applications into containers using the Docker container technology. Ever-faster development cycles in heterogeneous environments triggered by the move to agile software development processes require a programmable abstraction of the runtime environment to use the operating system. The open-source software Kubernetes (K8s) was developed to meet the need for managing the resulting abundance of containers – their so-called orchestration.
However, using Kubernetes is by no means trivial. Orchestration operation requires a lot of know-how, which can be acquired through having internal employees undergo extensive training. Alternatively, there is the option of using Managed Kubernetes as a reliable solution from a single source.
Using application virtualisation for Hybrid Cloud environments
Containers can even be used in Hybrid Cloud environments, as they are transportable and compatible across several cloud architectures. Read more in this free whitepaper.
Why Kubernetes as a Service?
If companies use both the infrastructure and the complete Kubernetes solution in the cloud, we also call it Kubernetes as a Service, Container as a Service or a Managed Kubernetes Service. The advantage of this is that you get everything from a single source and drastically reduce the workload of your employees.
This means that Kubernetes as a Service not only helps to reduce the complexity of implementing and maintaining Kubernetes. It also provides cost advantages by using resources in the cloud as required and using Kubernetes particularly efficiently.
