A WEBINAR WITH MAXIMA CONSULTING FOR C-LEVEL EXECUTIVES AND TECH LEADS ON KUBERNETES AND GITOPS
Cloud Control Solutions has co-hosted a webinar on “IMPROVING TIME TO MARKET WITH KUBERNETES AND GITOPS ” with Maxima Consulting. This webinar will show how to align the Kubernetes tools and provide a demo of the Kubernetes cluster and the Grafana dashboard. You will also discover how Kubernetes technologies and GitOps can help your business.
MOVING FROM VMs TO CONTAINERS
Money is one of many aspects to consider while using Kubernetes in your environment; time is also important. The most crucial element of this is the transition from VMs to Containers. Containers play an important role in saving time and coming to Kubernetes, one of today’s most prominent container orchestration platforms. 90-99 percent of cloud workloads operate in VMs, and 80 percent can be transformed into containers. VMs are helpful because they perform well for most use cases, but containers represent a fresh choice.
Containers can give speed since they are lightweight, allowing you to deploy apps significantly faster, fix errors, and make upgrades while providing more excellent value to users sooner and faster.
Containers are quick and lightweight, giving you greater flexibility in integrating more workloads into the same resources you get from the cloud, with the bonus of speed. When transitioning from one process to another, you must make an effort and make an initial commitment. The entire process will change, but you may get a greater ROI if you approach it with the correct tools, i.e., employing the right tools can get your containerization done.
If you go to Kubernetes.io, the leading site where Kubernetes stores all of its documentation and partner information. When you go to the landscape page, you can view all the listed ecosystem partners in the thousands. As a result, it is critical to select the appropriate technology based on the services you provide. Because Kubernetes is like a Swiss army knife, there will be good and bad ways to use it.
What is Blue/Green deployment in Kubernetes?
The blue/green deployment strategy is a software distribution technique that allows enterprises to distribute rapid updates while maintaining high quality and a seamless user experience. This method reduces the danger of introducing faults during software upgrades while minimizing delay during the transition to new versions. The blue/green concept employs two comparable manufacturing settings. The blue one runs the current software version, while the green one runs the latest version. At any moment, only one environment is active and receiving all production traffic. Moving traffic to the new environment will be safe after the new version has passed the relevant testing. If something goes wrong, traffic will be routed through the prior version.
GitOps enables developers to manage the application infrastructure and configurations on their own. GitOps provides the developer with tools that enhance automation and productivity. Developers may streamline application development and improve cooperation by implementing simple GitOps practices. With an accelerated approval process, teams may focus more on using a developer-centric approach while designing cloud-native applications.
Because it enables teams to keep up with the demands of modern software development, Kubernetes is a game changer for automated testing. Without Kubernetes, teams are typically forced to script their software deployment, scaling, and updating processes. Some businesses deploy huge teams to do these tasks on their own. Kubernetes enables us to maximize the utility of containers and build cloud-native apps that can run anywhere, independent of cloud requirements. This is, without a doubt, the efficient paradigm for application development and operations we have been seeking.
