Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable authoritative cloud Domain Name System (DNS) service. It connects the Internet traffic to appropriate servers hosting the requested Web application. In addition, route 53 also facilitates health-checking and domain name registration of services. The design of route 53 aims at providing a highly reliable and cost-effective approach for routing end-users to Internet applications. Why the name Route 53! AWS Route 53 takes its name from the Port 53, which handles DNS for both the TCP and UDP traffic requests, the term Route may signify the routing, or perhaps the popular highway naming convention in the USA.
Most businesses these days are adopting state-of-the-art cloud migration, infrastructure modernization and app modernization strategies to leverage benefits of improved agility, enhanced resilience, better scalability and faster time to market.
Here, we talk about what application modernization is and the major challenges that enterprises have to face while modernizing apps.
Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform used for running distributed applications and services at scale. Also known as “k8s” or “kube”, Kubernetes helps in automating manual and tedious activities involved in managing, deploying and scaling containerized applications.
Here’s a quick overview of Kubernetes architecture, its components and how they interact with each other. Let’s read this brief Kubernetes architecture explanation to learn and explore more on the different components of Kubernetes and how its components work together.
Just by looking at the Kubernetes architecture diagram, one can easily make out how difficult and cumbersome it is to deploy a Kubernetes cluster. Here is how Managed Kubernetes comes into the picture. The need for Managed Kubernetes arises when enterprises face challenges while deploying Kubernetes.
Managed Kubernetes helps to overcome the difficulties of deploying Kubernetes that arises due to the complex Kubernetes architecture. So, in order to manage the complete setup, operation, execution, and deployment of a Kubernetes cluster, enterprises assign third-party services to overcome the complex challenges of deploying Kubernetes.
Explore different tools & platforms for hassle-free and easy management of K8s clusters, here in this blog. Read further to know more!
The Rise of Containers
Today, it wouldn’t be wrong to consider containers and microservice-based architectures as key threads in the fabric of next-gen tools and technologies to modernize enterprise applications. The basic concept behind the approach is to replace traditional, monolithic app development with a Microservices architecture supported by the cloud, API-based services, CI/CD pipelines, and cloud-native storage.
But how easy is the adoption of these advanced tools? Do you have the basic foundation and setup for adopting containers and is your container strategy sustainable for the long haul? These are some of the many challenges that organizations face while adopting containers.
