Why it makes sense to consider managed Kubernetes

Kubernetes is the world’s most popular way to run containerized applications. It is so popular in fact – second only to Linux among open source projects – that rival container orchestration systems have become effectively irrelevant. Kubernetes is popular for numerous reasons, not least its power to scale seamlessly and heal itself automatically. Above all, however, there is its ubiquity. Kubernetes has become the de facto infrastructure for the cloud native world.

Give developers the autonomy to choose their own stack

Organizations rely on their development teams to stay competitive in a fast-moving world of cloud-native applications. Yet, these developers are slowed down by operational hassles, red tape, and silos that exist within the organization. The result is that new features are deployed late, and even when deployed, potentially not stable. Highly mature DevOps organizations encountered a solution: empower developers with the autonomy to choose their own tech stack.
