Kubernetes (aka Kubernetes) is an open source platform for managing containerized applications and services. Kubernetes provides a framework to run containers on clusters of physical or virtual machines, which simplifies orchestration in cloud native environments.
As per Gartner by 2023, Kubernetes will be deployed in more than 80% of all on-premises private cloud and cloud-inspired environments, requiring infrastructure and operations team to acquire operational competencies. As more organizations adopt container technology with Kubernetes, the demand for managing and maintaining Kubernetes environment has skyrocketed to a point that companies are asking for Kubernetes Support services.
Below are some of the key challenges to be considered for a successful adoption and support of Kubernetes platform,
Multiple Kubernetes cluster management : Managing multiple Kubernetes clusters puts more pressure on your internal teams, requiring a big time and resource investment
Troubleshooting Kubernetes is difficult: As with any complex system, things can and do break. With Kubernetes you can't test at scale, it's difficult to fix if something goes wrong, and you can't automate upgrades.
Managing Integrations: Integrating the Kubernetes with underlying storage and network infrastructure
Continuous deployment of services: At large scale it is recommended to use established open source solutions to manage seamless deployments (Helm or JenkinsX)
Additional ecosystem for running enterprise Kubernetes solutions: While scaling Kubernetes there is a need of support on ecosystem solutions such as networking, Container Security, Load balancing, Blue-green deployment, logging & monitoring, persistent storage & replication,
