How Kubernetes enhances DevOps practices

Kubernetes is not a necessary tool for handling DevOps but it certainly helps. Using Kubernetes in a DevOps toolchain enables distributed orchestration to manage infrastructure and configurations across multiple environments. Automated application deployment adds operational resiliency to the speed of DevOps pipelines. This benefit is most apparent for organizations that run multiple platforms, such as a public cloud. Deployment practices would vary from one to another without Kubernetes.

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using Kubernetes in a DevOps structure:

  • Kubernetes minimizes infrastructure considerations for DevOps delivery and also improves automation and application resiliency. DevOps teams can set policies for scaling through Kubernetes and spend less time managing these factors manually. 
  • Kubernetes enables teams to deploy applications anywhere without having to worry about the underlying infrastructure. This is a major advantage for enterprises that use containers. A container always runs the same within Kubernetes. 
  • Kubernetes treats everything as code. Infrastructure and application layers are written as declarative configuration instructions. With Kubernetes, a configuration change is always written as code and therefore deployed, rather than implementing it manually. 
  • Kubernetes offers easy deployment techniques, such as testing in production and release rollbacks.
