Does Your Business Need “Managed Kubernetes”?

There are multiple success stories out there that have leveraged a Kubernetes-based infrastructure to enable scaling of business applications. Take Airbnb for instance; their transition from Monolithic architecture to Microservices had been much talked about. The ultimate goal was to make continuous delivery available to hundreds of company’s engineers so that they could seamlessly add new services and enable the teams and ultimately the application to scale

The company adopted Kubernetes to manage the configuration and deployment of 250+ critical services to Kubernetes. The results were quite successful and allowed them to do over 500 deployments per day without any hiccups.

Containers have gained huge popularity in the business world due to their optimized performance and enablement of the speed of application delivery. They are rapidly being adopted by organizations both big and small.

With a 200% increase in Kubernetes adoption since the year 2017, it’s no doubt that Kubernetes is becoming the de-facto leader in container orchestration!

But with the increased demand for rapid growth and faster delivery in the competitive market space, there arises a need for an automated system to deploy, scale, monitor, and securely manage thousands of containerized applications.

Kubernetes offers an impressive set of features, including scalability, workload management, self-recovery, and progressive application deployment, but still, they require a significant manual configuration for better processing and controlled K8s cluster management.

Setting up an automated monitoring system that keeps a continuous check on Kubernetes infrastructure is difficult. Managing all this can be taxing and challenging for the DevOps team already busy keeping up with multiple infrastructures and DevOps priorities.

Managed Kubernetes takes care of this and much more. With Managed Kubernetes, users can easily monitor and manage their Kubernetes cluster without having to set up and maintain it themselves. Once the cluster set-up is ready and operational, managed Kubernetes provide all the tools needed to automate routine processes such as updates, scaling, load-balancing, and monitoring within the cluster.

In BuildPiper, we have created a microservices application delivery platform that allows seamless setup and management of Kubernetes as well!

Buildpiper allows multiple clusters to be managed by a consistent set of security and configuration policies enabling more compliance and lesser management costs. With Buildpiper, you can easily monitor the health status of the nodes, pods, and the complete node lifecycle management.

Buildpiper eases the task of the DevOps team as it frees them from the task of keeping a check on the implementation details of a K8s cluster and making sure that the cluster is healthy, secure, and up to date. With added functionalities like Managed Microservices, security, compliance, and observability, Buildpiper is the most suitable platform for deriving value from your microservices applications.
