Kubernetes for Stateful Applications Running databases, big data and AI/ML workloads in enterprise
Enterprise cloud-native requirements demand a robust platform that can support stateless and stateful workloads along with the necessary performance and SLA guarantees. ROBIN Hyper-Converged Kubernetes platform is built from the ground up to deploy enterprise applications. With an App-Store model for deploying stateful applications, Robin provides agility to DevOps teams with enterprise-grade performance. Introduction In today’s competitive market, enterprise IT faces an unenviable task of supporting innovation while enabling support for a variety of complex applications. Whether it is new applications with stateless architectures or existing stateful data-intensive applications, IT is expected to be the core part of the innovation team by empowering developers with right abstractions and enabling an agile workflow from developer laptop to production. In order to meet the demands of modern enterprise, IT has embraced cloud-native as the core pillar of their modernization strategy.
Kubernetes is the standard for container orchestration in the cloud-native ecosystem. Kubernetes, developed by Google and now part of Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), is an open source container orchestration engine used for the deployment, scaling and management of containers. The increase in market demand for Kubernetes is driving the platform as the standard for container orchestration. A vibrant ecosystem has emerged around Kubernetes, increasing the momentum of the project.
In the past two years, more organizations are using Kubernetes in production. According to a recent CNCF survey, 58% of respondents are using Kubernetes in production. This number will increase in the coming years as more enterprises go cloud-native. This trend is further highlighted by the report released by Dice and Indeed.com. Their report claims Kubernetes was the top job searched in 2018 and this trend will grow further in 2019. The advantage of Kubernetes lies in the low operational overhead, easier DevOps and a better abstraction for developers to deploy their applications. Kubernetes supports both on-premises and cloud-based deployments. The support for hybrid/multi-cloud deployments makes Kubernetes attractive for enterprises.
