Why CIOs need to care about Kubernetes in 2019

Speed matters in business, and new ideas, new products and new strategies require a nimble and fresh approach.

Today, that boils down to getting applications and data into the hands of users as fast as possible. Applications are fundamental to how modern businesses work, compete and evolve. So, how do forward-looking organizations keep up? The answer lies in a technology that rapidly moving into broader business parlance – Kubernetes.

The foundation of digital transformation success

Think of Netflix. Its meteoric rise to become the world’s leading internet entertainment service simply wouldn’t be possible with monolithic databases and apps. It is only through microservices that it has succeeded, with the streaming service using three million containers a week in April 2018.

Microservices and Kubernetes are at the very heart of innovation in today’s multi-cloud world. Automating the deployment process for managing containers enables businesses to save money, ensure scalability improve efficiency and free up IT teams from maintenance-based tasks.

We’re only just starting to see the impact this technology can have on enterprise organisations. Abu Dhabi Government, for example, has enhanced its digital solutions to support a unified government services platform, underpinned by effective advanced container networking and Kubernetes cluster management. Mobile gaming company Playtika is another – it is using VMware Enterprise PKS as its container platform to create a more agile development and testing environment.

Embracing Kubernetes

Kubernetes is fundamental for innovation in our multi-cloud world, and we are seeing more organisations embrace this technology. Having Kubernetes at the core of your operations, and for the management of multiple containers, is absolutely vital to allow a culture of experimentation to thrive.

This is the year that large organizations embrace Kubernetes, the foundation for management success in our multi-cloud world.
