How do you know when you are production ready? What does it even mean to be production ready?

Kubernetes was designed from the beginning with the idea of software development and operations working together. Operations tasks and how they get performed is an integral component of the Kubernetes architecture and design. Almost everything in Kubernetes uses declarative constructs that describe how applications are composed, how they interact and how they are managed.  This enables a significant increase in the operability and portability of modern software systems. It also allows developers to easily adopt GitOps workflows into their development pipelines which increases velocity and reliability of your deployments.

While the promise of increased productivity combined with a flexible, portable infrastructure is something to get excited about, most know that once you’re in production some of these promises can fall short, especially if you are feeling your way through it all on your own.

So how do growing development and ops teams manage a production ready cluster? What does it even mean to be production ready and how do you know you are production ready?
