faq

WHAT IS KUBERNETES?   

Kubernetes is an open-source tool created by Google and currently developed by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. It is intended for the orchestration of environments in the architecture of microservices which are usually based on Docker. It facilitates application development and deployment owing to automation of numerous manual processes. Its use is recommended in local environments as well as public, private and hybrid clouds.

HOW DOES KUBERNETES WORK?   

Kubernetes allows you to create a cluster of virtual (or physical) machines which groups containers with application elements. The platform permits container management without changing the architecture of the entire application.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KUBERNETES AND DOCKER?    

Kubernetes is software which creates an environment facilitating the management of containers (commonly called Dockers). An application is placed in a container (Docker) which is then launched in a cluster managed via Kubernetes. Kubernetes is not the only container orchestration system: another example is Docker Swarm created by Docker.

WHY IS IT WORTH USING KUBERNETES?    

Kubernetes is one of the most universal and scalable container management systems, but this makes its installation and maintenance rather complicated. Other environments for container maintenance automation include e.g. Docker Swarm or RedShift by Red Hat. The former is relatively easy to install and requires only one set of tools for further work. It is also able to launch containers faster. The latter can be launched only in the Red Hat operating system, but it is relatively well integrated with the system and offers a higher security level as a standard.

WHEN SHOULD YOU CHOOSE MANAGED KUBERNETES?   

Kubernetes is a complex system for container maintenance. Managed Kubernetes is a model where care and control of the Kubernetes system is entrusted to a provider. The latter can manage Kubernetes automatically or manually depending on the expectations and the offer. Some companies willing to use Kubernetes are not prepared to deploy, integrate or manage its complex layers (e.g. the matters concerning load balancing, routing and general security and use of a cluster-based network model). Consequently, outsourcing is often the best choice. In-house management of Kubernetes requires the internal IT teams to obtain a range of new qualifications due to process complexity.

WHAT DO YOU GAIN WITH MANAGED KUBERNETES IN OKTAWAVE?   

Managed Kubernetes in Oktawave offers a unique combination of competence and product technologies based on global clouds and local infrastructure. Managed Kubernetes will help you grow your business without redundant costs or stoppages. The specialized Oktawave Kubernetes Team manages the current tasks and the operation of the entire Kubernetes technology stack — from equipment through hosting, virtualization and orchestration platforms to support of CI/CD processes and Terraform automation. Therefore, you can focus on the building and launching of applications.

We deploy solutions based on heterogeneous environments, combining microservices with backend options which require maintenance of databases (Oracle, Microsoft SQL or open-source solutions), ERP systems and similar components. Our team also accepts responsibility for efficient operation of those solutions. We assist in integration and provide you with full support in the deployment and handling of highly scalable applications based on best practices.

"We can focus on the development of technology and business because our infrastructure develops on its own."
