Container orchestration: agile application delivery in the cloud

Containers have become indispensable in software development. Anyone who wants to manage their applications efficiently and agilely in the cloud relies on container orchestration.


Containers and microservices are mainly used in the context of agile software development. This is because modern applications are no longer monolithically structured, but rather consist of a large number of small individual components. This enables much faster development cycles, even in heterogeneous environments. However, the benefits of agile software development and the existence of containers have also led to increased complexity. This is where container orchestration comes into play.

Container orchestration makes it easier for companies to work with modern container-based applications. It virtually ensures harmonious interaction between a large number of containers and microservices that make up an application today. Container orchestration helps to simplify and automate the deployment, management, scaling and networking of containers as much as possible. As a tool, the open source software Kubernetes is considered the de facto standard.

Managed Kubernetes simplifies container orchestration

However, the operation of an orchestration solution also requires a certain amount of expertise, which must first be built up through extensive training of internal employees. If companies cannot do this on their own due to a lack of time or skilled personnel, managed container orchestration is an option. Experienced managed cloud providers offer special solutions such as Managed Kubernetes.

Container orchestration with Managed Kubernetes makes it possible to drastically reduce complexity and effort for internal staff, save costs, accelerate innovation cycles and thus become more competitive.

Container orchestration: Managed Kubernetes at plusserver

Container management in the cloud

plusserver offers you container orchestration from a single source as part of the Managed Kubernetes service. This services uses both the infrastructure and the complete Kubernetes solution in our cloud. The service includes provisioning, maintenance and management ofthe complete containerized environments. This gives you maximum flexibility and portability for your applications. You can make your IT more agile and accelerate or automate your processes.

Process automation and CI/CD

Automation of processes isone of the main reasons why companies use the cloud as well as container technologies. This is exactly what you can achieve with Managed Kubernetes from plusserver. Container orchestration enables you to continuously and automatically develop and deploy software. Managed Kubernetes creates the ideal foundation for you to establish a CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery) environment. By continuously developing, implementing and deploying new features and functions, you will thereby also successfully implement the DevOps principle. This allows you to accelerate innovation cycles, reduce error rates and become more competitive.

Managed Kubernetes offers you concrete cost advantages, since you obtain cloud resources from plusserver as required and use them in an especially efficient manner with Kubernetes.
