Kubernetes containerization services
Application Rollouts/ Rollbacks
- Automates changes to application or its configuration.
- Reverts updates incase of errors
- Automate preferred storage system mounting
- Support for local, cloud, and network storage systems
- Automate container placements without losing availability
- Restart failed containers
- Replace and reschedule containers when nodes die
Load Balancing and Service Discovery
- eliminate risk of using unfamiliar service discovery mechanism
- Give Pods their own IP and single DNS name – enable load balancing.
- Automate scaling based on CPU usage
- Scale applications with a single command or with a UI
Run apps across various platforms through Kubernetes powerful cluster creations capabilities
Scale your program with a single command, a user interface, or automatically based on CPU consumption.
Configure log analysis and monitoring services for targeted results
Set up a comprehensive CI/CD pipeline. Cover everything from source control, building and testing, to deployment and integration
OpenShift vs Kubernetes
Both OpenShift and Kubernetes are open-source platforms that help application development and container orchestration. OpenShift, being built on top of Kubernetes, includes all of its main components.
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.
Tips for creating Helm Charts in a Kubernetes Application
Kubernetes doesn’t really provide a packaging solution for the resources of the application and this is where Helm comes into the picture. Helm packages the Kubernetes resources needed to deploy an application into a unit called a chart.
With Microservices in place, it is impossible to think about the packaging of an application without containers. Docker has done a decent job by providing a way to containerize the applications.
Managed Kubernetes services compared: GKE vs EKS vs AKS
Most managed Kubernetes services have been around for less than three years now, one offering was well ahead of the curve.
Best Practices for Building Containers and Kubernetes Applications
Cloud computing has changed the way in which businesses operated in the past. Many enterprises that have joined in the cloud migration race realize that they are short on time.
