Kubernetes – An introduction into the open-source system

04/16/2020 MHPDeepDive

Preparing, scaling and managing container applications

Containers are omnipresent precisely in cloud environments. No wonder – after all, they combine a microservice or an application with the required runtime environment. This simplifies deployment and installation, and ensures portability, scalability and safeguarding against failure. The challenge mostly consists in the orchestration of the containers – because in many cases only this combination results in useful applications.

The open-source system that promises to rise to these challenges is Kubernetes. The software, which was originally developed by Google and then handed over to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), makes it possible to provide, scale and manage automated containerized microservices and applications. The orchestration is supported by a number of cloud platforms by means of Kubernetes – for example Amazon's AWS, IBM Cloud, Microsoft's Azure, Oracle's OCI and Red Hat's OpenShift. In fact, there is currently real hype about the star of orchestration solutions. But when is the use of Kubernetes really worthwhile?

In our MHPDeepDive "Kubernetes – An introduction to the open-source system", we will provide you not only with an overview of the basic features of Kubernetes. We will also show in which situations the use of open-source software is advantageous, and what challenges can actually be overcome in this way. To enable you to make a realistic assessment, we will also examine some critical aspects – in particular in Day 2 operations. We will illustrate all of this using a practical example.

What awaits you in our MHPDeepDive:

  • You will find out what features Kubernetes provides and why they are useful
  • We will show you what challenges can be overcome with Kubernetes
  • We will examine critical aspects of Kubernetes – above all, the Day 2 operations
