While we here at Nirmata are very keen and excited about all the possibilities for the DevSecOps world when it comes to Kubernetes for containerization and microservices, it’s always exciting to hear what others in-the-know think about K8s too.
We came across this recent article from our friends at DevOps.com that discusses their favorite open source DevOps tools for 2021. Along with Docker, Prometheus, Terraform and others, Kubernetes is discussed – and it gets first-place billing! We like how the author, Bill Doerrfeld, frames the value of Kubernetes not just for its capabilities but for its economic value:
“But, throwing loads of money into fancy SaaS solutions can quickly gobble up the cloud budget. These DevOps tools all are open source, and enable everything from container builds and orchestration to microservices networking, configuration management, CI/CD automation, full-stack monitoring and more.”
More impressively, Bill nails one of the core strengths of Kubernetes for DevOps needs – its possibilities for automation in production. As he explains it,
“Kubernetes, adoption of which rose by 48% in 2020, is used to orchestrate containers. Instead of releasing microservices manually, Kubernetes can automate deployment, maintenance and scaling of groups of containers in production.”
Thanks Bill and DevOps.com for seeing the fantastic value of this open source solution, and thanks also for considering it as one of the best DevOps tools in 2021. At Nirmata, we are working hard to make our DevSecOps platform for Kubernetes everything the world needs it to be!
