As a technology leader in your organization, many of your decisions come down to allocating resources: balancing and prioritizing risk and reward, stability and velocity, the present and the future. In an ideal world, technical debt would always be addressed before it started accruing interest. Long-term maintenance and operations expenses would be accurately weighed against the short-term development expenses that could mitigate them.
Containers are increasingly becoming the de-facto strategy for cloud native deployments. With the question of orchestration looming over those deployments, cloud vendors continue to provide multiple offerings for managing your containerized services. In this article, we’ll compare 3 main Azure offerings for container orchestration: Azure Web Apps, Azure Container Instances, and Azure Kubernetes Service.
Going cloud-native and choosing AWS as your cloud platform is an important decision. Once you’ve set your mind to that path, the next step is to select the right managed services for your infrastructure. If you’re implementing a microservice approach on AWS, there are multiple options for hosting your containerized services. Here is a high-level overview of ECS, Fargate, and EKS and tips for choosing the best container orchestration option for your organization.
Containers have been catching on with developers and executives alike in recent years as more and more people realize their usefulness. Though useful, this means you now need to manage several moving parts. That’s where Kubernetes comes in to handle container orchestration. Since implementing a Kubernetes cluster comes with its own set of challenges, a variety of tools has emerged to increase speed to deployment. Several cloud providers offer fully managed Kubernetes clusters, and each has an ecosystem to meet your unique needs.
This article focuses on Azure and AWS and provides a breakdown of the potential benefits and drawbacks of each in powering Kubernetes.
In the quest for digital transformation, containers aid in increasing the portability and rapid delivery of applications. They are a tool that fits perfectly within the Cloud, Agile, DevOps toolkit. The catch is, the decision to try containerization involves getting buy-in from multiple groups of people.
