2020 in IT: Current Trends and Threats

Kubernetes offers many tools for monitoring both individual containers and entire clusters.
Kubernetes can be used for the cloud, on physical servers and in various hybrid infrastructures.
Thanks to Kubernetes, containers are scaled automatically and efficiently as needed at the time.
Applications are separated from the infrastructure, which facilitates the portability of applications to different environments.
Did you know that ...
“kybernetés” was the term for helmsman in ancient Greek? The naming of the technology thus reflects what Kubernetes does – managing and organizing containers.
In MasterDC, we use Kubernetes to create private clusters. In combination with state-of-the-art hardware, data centres in two locations and other technologies, we can build a Kubernetes cluster with high availability at all levels.
A key factor in Kubernetes is an automation and optimisation of processes that would otherwise have to be done manually. Therefore Keburenetes is particularly appreciated by the developers who work with large numbers of containers and need to administer them efficiently. It is also convenient for those who need a reliable service continuity, since owing to Kubernetes it is possible to achieve remarkably high availability.
This orchestration tool was developed by Google which Kubernetes uses to manage a huge number of containers; its functionality is thus tested on an extremely large scale. In addition, Kubernetes is enhanced by a strong community that is constantly developing new plugins that expand its functionality.
“If you are going to move to Kubernetes with an application already created, its architecture must be prepared in advance.”
