Kubernetes is one of the most popular container platforms available — almost half of organizations that use containers run Kubernetes, according to Datadog. Companies of all kinds have adopted Kubernetes because it gives teams greater autonomy and the ability to move faster, by making it easier to deploy microservices at scale and without as much manual work. Plus, its extensive community provides a wealth of resources and expertise that other organizations have developed, ultimately giving developers even more freedom.
As valuable as autonomy is, it can also be a curse when it comes to a microservices architecture. The more microservices you plan to scale and the more autonomy team members have, the less likely it is that things will be standardized. This only becomes more true as time goes on and threads become more difficult to gather. To get the most out of Kubernetes, organizations need a way to maintain consistency in how services are created and deployed.
The Cortex platform offers organizations an easy way to define best practices and standards to establish that consistency. Cortex can help teams create a culture of accountability and reliability, which is especially important as more autonomy is granted to teams and team members, and as these teams consider the most effective ways to move faster. With the Scaffolder, Cortex users can even build microservices from scratch by working from a template preconfigured to meet your organization’s best practices.
That’s one of the reasons Cortex is excited to attend KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe 2023 as a silver sponsor, but it’s not the only one. Cortex can help organizations manage security, another challenge faced by Kubernetes adopters as an application scales. Cortex is particularly helpful when it comes to maintaining security standards, as Scorecards give teams an easy way to track and enforce best practices.
Cortex is also perfectly suited to facilitate migrations, so organizations that are thinking about adopting Kubernetes can rely on Cortex to streamline the process. Cortex has simplified cloud migrations for a number of organizations, and can help teams stay on track throughout the process to make sure the migration is a successful one.
Cortex has extensive experience helping organizations with common Kubernetes challenges, and we’re looking forward to sharing our expertise with current and future Kubernetes adopters at KubeCon in Amsterdam from April 18 to 21. Whether you regularly deploy dozens of services through k8s or you’re just starting to think about it, the Cortex platform can streamline your Kubernetes experience.
You can see Cortex for yourself at Booth #S37. While you're there, you can pick up a T-shirt, grab a sticker, and enter our raffle. Make the most of your time at KubeCon and stop by the party we’re cohosting with Synk and Sysdig at “The Beach House” on April 20.
