A Comparison Between Various Container Orchestration Services! (ECS vs Kubernetes)

Container adoption is significantly increasing across various modern use cases, but it’s not a simple plug-and-play. Adopting containers becomes highly complicated, especially when it comes to executing them at scale as most enterprises have only limited skills and capabilities.

Many leading companies believe that Kubernetes is the first step to building scalable modern applications and they are adopting K8s to overcome container adoption barriers.

Spotify is one of these. Leveraging Kubernetes benefits, Spotify has observed significant cost-saving values as described in this case study. It has seen 2-3x CPU utilization by using the orchestration capabilities of K8s, resulting in better spend optimization.

Challenges of Kubernetes & How to Solve it!

For many of us, Kubernetes is the solution for some of the never-ending microservices application delivery problems, but Kubernetes setup and management comes with its own set of challenges. According to a report, there are 9 key Kubernetes challenges. In this blog, I’m focusing on the two primary challenges, which are Security & Networking.

Why is Security becoming such a Big Challenge for Organizations?

It’s mainly because Kubernetes is very complex and highly vulnerable if not monitored properly. As we implement Kubernetes for container orchestration, more and more containers are deployed and due to its distributed nature, hence it gets difficult to investigate which container might have vulnerabilities. Hence as a result the organization will start to feel the threat of outsiders breaching in.

One of the best examples of this situation: In 2018 Tesla’s Kubernetes admin console (which was not password protected) was breached by Hackers and mining of cryptocurrencies was done by Tesla’s cloud resources on amazon web services (AWS).

How To Choose A Kubernetes Management Platform That Is Right For You?

Growing Adoption of Kubernetes among Enterprises

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 Source report, 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.

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.
