Kubernetes usage appears to be a popular pattern being adopted by enterprises these days. Recently, 56 percent of the organizations that polled for the 2020 edition of The State of Enterprise Open Sourcereport, said that they expected their use of containers to increase in the next 12 months. The report polled 950 IT leaders.
Kubernetes has practically become the new norm for container orchestration. Enterprises going cloud-native consider Kubernetes as one of the important elements contributing to the success of implementing a cloud-first strategy. If you’re planning to re-architect your business architecture, I’m sure Kubernetes is the first thing that comes to your mind, isn’t it? Let’s take a look at other interesting Kubernetes facts.
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.
‘Monolith to Microservices’ is one of the most sought-after application modernization initiatives taken by various technology leaders today. Microservices is an architectural style and approach to writing software applications wherein the applications are broken down into smaller, independent components.
Enterprises worldwide are considering this approach to quicken their delivery process and fasten their deployment rates. With major benefits being– increased resilience, rapid delivery, improved scalability, and faster time to market.
The tech world has always been churning out new concepts and buzz-words every now and then. Here, in this blog, I’d like to talk about a buzz-word that has been popular for a while now. “Disaggregation” — the idea of segregating functions like computing, storage, and networking to drive organizational efficiency and agility. While the idea of division isn’t entirely new, it is with respect to software development. The notion is best represented by the term Microservices today!
Microservices are modular components that can be deployed independently for improving the agility of software development processes. The benefits of implementing Microservices are numerous, including but not limited to better scalability, faster deployment, and improved maintenance.
At OpsTree, our mission has always been about ‘Simplifying DevSecOps & Sharing Knowledge’ and staying true to our ethos, here in this blog, I’ve tried to summarise in the most simplistic terms, some of the propelling motivations behind the adoption of micro services and making it successful !
I see huge interest amongst various business leaders and our clients to adopt or migrate to a Microservice architecture. Thankfully, I am old enough in the world of Software Craftsmanship to have witnessed how these patterns have evolved over the years :
