Kubernetes is quickly becoming the default go-to platform for deploying, scaling, and maintaining software and applications. Its value lies in its open source credentials, which allow companies to deploy applications on premises, hybrids, or on the public cloud. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) claims that 96% of organizations today use or evaluate technology. But what makes the platform so ubiquitous? Aberdeen Strategy & Research Vice President Jim Rapoza met with Chris Aniszczyk, CNCF Chief Technology Officer, on the sidelines of KubeCon EU 2022 to understand what and why Kubernetes is. Read on!
Modern application infrastructure serves as the backbone of today’s successful organizations. Organizations that excel in app development, according to a study by Aberdeen Strategy and Research, are in the top 30% of key success metrics for quality, performance, security, and reliability. These leaders run the highest quality, most efficient, and most secure application development programs.
But what are those secret ingredients that make application development programs for these leaders so successful? according to Jim RaposaVice President and Principal Analyst at Aberdeen Strategy & Research Organizations that manage best-in-class application development embrace modernization across the entire IT portfolio, building cloud, on-premises, and development environments ideally positioned to run containers and Kubernetes-based applications.
Similarly, DevOps organizations that are leaders in their industries are twice as likely to develop Kubernetes applications than their peers. Organizations themselves are 95% more likely to benefit from serverless trends in development, more likely to have multi-cluster container environments, and 60% more likely to deploy applications in hybrid cloud infrastructures.
The growing stature of Kubernetes
So why has Kubernetes become the go-to container-orchestration system for successful organizations? Rapoza states that, unlike traditional monolithic applications, applications built with Kubernetes and containers are built from a full set of microservices, all doing their own thing and creating unique levels of flexibility, portability and scalability for applications. “If the traditional app is at best a three-piece a cappella group singing a pop song, the Kubernetes-based app is a full orchestra playing a complex symphony,” he says.
To learn more about recent developments in the world of Kubernetes, Rapoza has recognized it Chris AnisczykCTO, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU 2022 conspiracy in Valencia, Spain. CNCF, the Linux Foundation project founded in 2015 as an open source, vendor-neutral hub for cloud-native computing, hosts numerous KubeCon and CloudNativeCon events each year to allow business leaders and developers to share ideas, announce new projects, and discuss the latest developments in application development. next one KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America 2022 The conference will be held in Detroit, Michigan from October 24-28, 2022.
In his conversation with Rapoza, Aniszczyk talked about what Kubernetes means to business today, how it is changing the way services and applications are created and delivered, and how companies can better understand and benefit from this vital technology. Watch the highlights of Jim Rapoza’s interview with Chris Aniszczyk here:
Why is Kubernetes important to businesses?
According to Aniszczyk, Kubernetes came to meet the needs of organizations to scale their operations and support millions of users. “Over the past decade, companies have embraced digital transformation, moved to the cloud, and the purpose of KubeCon is to help companies take advantage of new technologies and new developments in Kubernetes to scale their operations. Kubernetes can help companies deliver software faster and deliver value to customers.”
How many people attended KubeCon + CloudNativeCon in Valencia?
“KubeCon has seen massive engagement this year with over 7,000 people and a virtual attendance of over 11,000,” said Aniszczyk. The conference aims to answer questions from more than 7.1 million developers around the world, and 150,000 developers from 140 countries are now participating in projects, making it a global community coming together to improve Kubernetes technology.
“If you want to learn how to use modern Kubernetes technologies, enable cloud-native digital transformation, technology events like KubeCon are a good place to visit. Here you can learn best practices on how to deliver software faster and more efficiently, keep it up-to-date, and deliver value to customers instantly. faster “.
What are the best Kubernetes technologies that businesses should adopt?
“If you are interested in scalability, reliability, and efficiency, you need something like Kubernetes to run all your workloads efficiently,” said Aniszczyk. “Kubernetes helps companies scale, and makes infrastructure more efficient, whether it’s on the edge or on satellite. Companies can use technology to scale workloads and data centers in the cloud — two use cases that benefit from Kubernetes.”
Where can budding developers learn new skills to excel in Kubernetes?
“In terms of skill sets, there is a beautiful organization called EdX that provides training on Kubernetes. There is also a pre-professional certification called Kubernetes and Cloud Native Associate I highly recommend developers to check it out,” says Aniszczyk. “Also. Kubernetes.io And the Cloud Native Corporation Twitter is great places to learn.”
