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.

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).

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.

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.

As of late, I took a dive at setting up and connecting WordPress with the database using container services. I created a website but couldn’t figure out where and how to deploy it. I was looking for a way with less exertion, at least expense, and minimum time. At this point, I thought of a Continue reading “BuildPiper – A SAAS Playground”
