Why Kubernetes Matters - White Paper

With Docker, working with containers has never been easier.

However, as the number of containers and hosts that you are deploying grows, managing and orchestrating them becomes very difficult.

This is where the container orchestration solution, Kubernetes comes in.

3 KEY TAKEAWAYS

Kubernetes eliminates dependencies by providing core capabilities for containers to make them infrastructure, cloud and application independent

Easily Manage Application Lifecycle

Kubernetes makes it easy to use infrastructure to manage the application lifecycle.

Kubernetes & Containers: A New Era for DevOps (Webinar)

We are on the cusp of a new era of application development software: instead of bolting on operations as an after-thought to the software development process, Kubernetes promises to bring development and operations together by design. This new open source container cluster manager provides platform automation for deployment, scaling and management of application containers and clusters. With declarative, infrastructure-agnostic constructs to describe how applications are composed, interact and managed, Kubernetes promises an order of magnitude increase in operability of modern software systems. Join Sirish Raghuram, Co-founder of Platform9, the company enabling SaaS managed Kubernetes anywhere, to discuss why Kubernetes matters, and the advantages it can provide to DevOps.
