Escaping the buzz and hype around Kubernetes seems impossible these days. Clearly the platform has won the container orchestration wars and has been embraced by developers. Now enterprise IT is tasked with providing the platform to enable their developers to ship their code they way the want it. Nate Avery believes that many are simply boarding the Kubernetes hype train before they even know their destination, however. In his blog post, “Why Are We Doing Kubernetes?”, Nate encourages IT departments to take a step back and answer the “why” of Kubernetes before the “how” of standing it up.
Nathaniel Avery comments:
Kubernetes continues to be one of the hottest topics and skillsets in IT. It’s spoken about as the next thing we’ll all be doing. The hype is reminiscent of virtualization back in the early 2000’s. It’s a technology that holds a lot of promise, comes from a good beginning, and has wide industry support. All of those factors should mean success. But it’s how we define success that ultimately matters. We also need to be clear about which problem(s) we hope a technology solves for us.
