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.

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.

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.
