As containers became the standard for creating modern applications or modernizing existing applications, Kubernetes (K8s) has become the de-facto standard for running them at scale and in production.
Kubernetes has gained momentum with a very large community support including support from backers like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Red Hat and many other large enterprises and SaaS companies. Cloud Native Computing Foundation (www.cncf.io), the maintainers of Kubernetes, fosters a large eco-system of add-ons and associated platforms.
As of this writing, there are 23,000+ contributors to CNCF, chief among them is for Kubernetes and its eco-system. The evolving powerful capabilities of K8s and eco-system bring enormous complexity for businesses to set up and operate various parts of the system and keep up with the changes almost on a weekly if not daily basis. This white paper provides the details on how to create and manage large enterprise scale container clouds based on Kubernetes.
It is easy to get started with an initial configuration of the cluster on cloud IaaS platforms such as AWS EC2, Google Cloud or Azure or VMware but on-going operations and manageability become unsustainable. Read about building, maintaining and operating do-it- yourself K8s management system in Appendix 1 - DIY Cost of K8s Management.
This paper gives specific details of how Appranix Site Reliability Automation platform works and its capabilities to deliver, protect and optimize large enterprise scale multi-cluster K8s based container cloud environments.Download the report to learn
