Discovering Kubernetes-Ready Solutions for Cloud Native Applications

Article | February 24, 2020

The way we architect and build applications has changed over the last decade or so. Where monoliths (or single, large codebases) used to be the standard, modern applications are now built using a combination of new architecture patterns, operational models, and software delivery services. By shifting to a microservices architecture, teams can more easily update, replace, and innovate on small, modular codebases—driving faster business innovation while reducing risk, time to market, and total cost of ownership. This modular microservices approach has spurred the use of containers as a lightweight, portable solution to the infrastructure needs garnered by these loosely coupled services. As such, containers have largely become the centerpiece of automation and DevOps in the enterprise. This gives teams the ability to capitalize on the flexibility and scalability offered by the use of containers, but it also means more moving parts and more perimeters to manage. Kubernetes has emerged as the gold standard for handling container orchestration.
