We have heard it all…
We know, you’ve got a legacy Windows based application that would be a beast to containerize. Or you’ve got complex networking requirements that would be difficult to replicate over a service mesh. Maybe the Kubernetes learning curve is preventing adoption among your team. Maybe you’re asking: “Did Docker die? Is Kubernetes really the future? With so many platform options, which is right for me?”
There is no “one-size fits all” container approach anymore, and it can be a challenge to find solutions that you are confident can stand the test of time.
Companies everywhere are looking to the rapidly changing container orchestration industry to try to define their “future state”. With so many options, it can be difficult to plan a containerization platform that is easy to support, and that you can have confidence will stand the test of time.
If you’ve ever looked at the container hosting options, their history, and your project timeline and said to yourself “Will my preferred container platform even be relevant when we are ready to deploy it?”. We understand where you are coming from, and we can help. The key is to define exactly what benefits you hope to get out of your platform, and how you will design your processes to be flexible enough to handle changes in the future.
Thankfully, containerization lends well to this need for flexibility from the start. Container runtimes may change, orchestration platforms will get enhanced, and people will continue to write vendor specific wrappers around Kubernetes like OpenShift. However, once you are running your workloads in containers, moving between platforms and adopting platform changes becomes much more manageable.
Alto9 technical staff stays up to date on all the latest containerization platforms and techniques. Kubernetes, Docker, Swarm, OpenShift, etc.. We can help you make sense of the application delivery platform of the future.
