No One Gets Fired for Choosing Kubernetes, But Maybe They Should

Spring 2023

Kubernetes has become the de facto standard for container orchestration, and many organizations have adopted it as a key component of their cloud-native infrastructure. However, as Kubernetes becomes more popular, it’s essential to question whether it’s the right choice for every organization. Non-native cloud services, like Kubernetes, still require much learning and time to configure securely. Most companies struggle with this quickly as their setup resembles the old monoliths of the past that are slowly created and tend to never go away…a very non-cloud model. This session will explore the pros and cons of Kubernetes, and will discuss if native cloud services can be streamlined, or is it time to skip Kubernetes and go serverless?

Session Outline:
-Introduction: The basics of Kubernetes and its role in container orchestration
-Overview of the pros and cons of Kubernetes
-Discussion of when Kubernetes might not be the best choice for an organization
-Alternative container orchestration solutions and how to evaluate the best option for your organization
-Case studies of organizations that have chosen an alternative solution to Kubernetes
-Conclusion and Q&A

Target Audience:
IT professionals, developers, cloud architects, and anyone interested in learning about the advantages and disadvantages of Kubernetes, as well as alternative options for container orchestration.
