Why you should use container orchestration on Cloud with Kubernetes

Not implementing container orchestration? Here’s why you need to start doing it today.

Why container orchestration?

With containers, any DevOps team can package and isolate applications with all their files needed to run in each environment. Containers thus supply more flexible choices when adopting public cloud services, due to application packaging and isolation. This way teams can move the application between clouds without changing any functionality or line of code.

Running microservices in containers is the fundamental building block of cloud-native IT solutions, but the management and orchestration of these components is the key to success in the cloud age. Container orchestration enables a standard-based multi-cloud model, which means that choosing a cloud service provider (as AWS, Azure and GCP) is solely a business strategy decision rather than a technical one.

Why multi-cloud portability?

Having a multi-cloud strategy is much more than having subscriptions in multiple public clouds or using private and public clouds. The focus now must be on the portability of applications between the various clouds.

If DevOps teams ensure that their applications are groups of independent services coupled together, using the same operating model in any IT environment, we can achieve a level of application universality over the cloud environments that support their execution.

This new paradigm’s vision is that the place where applications and data exist is not relevant from a technical perspective. Both must be able to move to the most beneficial location in the business perspective without any technical barriers.

Why Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that automates the necessary operations to be conducted in these containers, thus reducing manual processes for the deployment and scaling of cloud-native infrastructure, whether in a private or public cloud. Automation in Kubernetes helps achieve operational simplicity: application environment’s expansion both in scale-up and in scale-out needs when adopting private, public, and/or hybrid cloud environments.
