Kubernetes, also known as K8s, is an open-source software to manage containerized applications. The platform is usually controlled by a number of hosts that co-ordinate. The service allows pods to work as one, including those that are usedin multi-tier apps, and assigns an IP address as well as DNS name to that service so it can effectively balance traffic.
Managed kubernetesallows for a fully automated service so that you do not need to have a team working around the clock for it to be fully operational at all times. It can work via public clouds as well as on premise servers, whichgivesit hybrid capacity. Upgrades are done automatically without downtime and troubleshooting can take place in your absence, making for a reliable service without the overhead costs…hey we all have to sleep sometime.
Once the switch has been made to managedkubernetesyou will be able to run applications seamlessly across clouds and/or data centers, giving you more flexibility. You will also be able to take away the infrastructure stack you were previously using and have controls in place to ensure software is deployed as and when you wish, even in your absence.
There’s no chance of vendor lock in with kubernetes-as-a-service, which allows developers to be able to concentrate on their app development without the need for a huge team to help them as their app popularity increases.
With a managed kubernetes,service developers working on microservices are able to independently use Kubernetes to virtualize their app and use a single pane to manage it, avoiding conflict and confusion.
The popularity of kubernetesis mainly attributed to itsuse byhigh profile businesses, including Netflix the online film and series provider. There are lots of ways to manage your containers, however, Kubernetes is taking the lead over other options for a number of reasons.
By letting the pods use the same container cluster and network it allows them to communicate well with one another. It’s essential to have pods so that the methodology can be extended. This allows for decoupling and regrouping enabling numerous developers to work separately yet intertwine their work for fluid results. This makes it easier to expand even if the developers are working remotely from one another. It’s like labeling your CD collection so that you can find what you need faster, only it’s a way of doing it to apps, which of course reduces time wasted. Pods are deleted, recreated and checked for health automatically reducing the need for constant overheads to keep apps running smoothly for customer satisfaction.
One of the best things about Kubernetes is there is a huge community already using it, which means that there is always someone to turn to if you have a task you want more information about around the clock.
Saving money and being able to concentrate on the development of apps is beneficial to everyone as they can be created faster without interruption, which of course improves customer feedback and ultimately sales. By also taking into account the lower need for overheads you can see how it can be financially beneficial for companies to use kubernetes.
