The need for “Managed Kubernetes”!
Just by looking at the Kubernetes architecture diagram, one can easily make out how difficult and cumbersome it is to deploy a Kubernetes cluster. Here is how Managed Kubernetes comes into the picture. The need for Managed Kubernetes arises when enterprises face challenges while deploying Kubernetes.
Managed Kubernetes helps to overcome the difficulties of deploying Kubernetes that arises due to the complex Kubernetes architecture. So, in order to manage the complete setup, operation, execution, and deployment of a Kubernetes cluster, enterprises assign third-party services to overcome the complex challenges of deploying Kubernetes.
Due to the intricacies present inside the Kubernetes architecture, deploying a Kubernetes cluster becomes more difficult. To resolve complex challenges that enterprises have to face during Kubernetes deployment, the DevOps team at OpsTree came up with a powerful and reliable Kubernetes & Microservices Management platform- BuildPiper, to enable seamless, secured, scalable and compliant Kubernetes deployment.
With “Managed Kubernetes” which is one of the core functionalities of this product, BuildPiper makes the Kubernetes cluster-Microservices application ready!
Here are some of the other out-of-the-box functionalities,
