Kubernetes on OKD

Kubernetes speeds up your development

OKD is the community distribution of kubernetes that powres Red Hat's OpenShift. Containerization and Kubernetes help development teams maintain the fast pace required in modern software development. The use of a container platform also provides a very efficient way to maintain, upgrade and scale applications.

Why kubernetes on OKD?

A container platform as a foundation in the development organization leads to reduced time to market, higher flexibility and innovation capacity for developers, as well as a drastically shortened process for releases.

A powerful container platform on OpenStack

In recent years, we've seen how container technology has exploded in the Swedish market. Through the projects we've carried out, we've learned a lot and see a clear need for organizations to be able to take advantage of the benefits of a container platform, without having to take on the time-consuming task of installing and maintaining it.

We offer a fully supported and managed Kubernetes solution with SLA on the entire container platform. We want you to be able to look up and focus on development - that's why updates, monitoring, troubleshooting, backup, patching, certificates, support and regular operations meetings are included.

The benefits of kubernetes

Today, software development must happen faster and faster to respond to business requirements. You are expected to keep pace with, or even surpass, your competitors. If you're developing a new application, you've definitely encountered Kubernetes and containers. Kubernetes accelerates your development process by making the application more modular.

Kubernetes also provides you with a very efficient way to maintain the application when it goes into production, as well as an easy way to upgrade and scale it as needed.


Portability: develop once, run anywhere

With containers, you can write your code once and easily port it to another container environment. Everything you need to run your code is in your container. You will no longer have to wonder which version of Python you should have in your production environment. Bake your libraries and all your dependencies into your container, run it in your test environment, and then run the exact same container in production. No weirdness!

Bake your libraries and all your dependencies into your container, run it in your test environment, and then run the exact same container in production.

Therefore, it can be said that Kubernetes offers direct portability across different clouds. With Kubernetes, you can easily move your container-based applications across multiple clouds and environments, enabling greater flexibility and choice. You will build cloud-native applications that can run anywhere! All details related to differences in operating systems and underlying clouds are removed.

Scalability with control

With Kubernetes, you can easily scale your application based on your actual needs at the time. It's the same technology Netflix uses to run billions of containers every week and keep pace with demand. Software can be installed in a scalable way in your cloud and the application can be scaled in or out at any time. Kubernetes can easily scale to meet the needs of even the fastest growing application. Kubernetes auto-scalers automatically size an application's number of resources based on actual usage. You can set predefined limits to control the maximum number of resources you can consume.

Lightweight and lightning fast

Kubernetes is lightweight - instead of having a virtual machine with many gigabytes, you run a small container with only a few kilobytes to run it. This means that containers use far fewer resources than virtual machines, making them very resource efficient and affordable. Kubernetes containers share the operating system with other containers running on the same host, which saves a lot of resources.

Because they are so lightweight, Kubernetes containers can start almost instantly. Compare that to virtual machines that can take several minutes to start up their operating systems and begin running applications in them. Containers are typically faster than virtual machines because they don't have the overhead associated with an operating system. Create the Kubernetes containers you need to handle the requests you have right now, and remove them when they are no longer needed - that way you can save a lot of resources! That's how you build truly scalable and efficient applications.

Modularity and microservices

Kubernetes keeps your application simple by allowing you to build smaller and independent software components called microservices. Instead of running an entire complex application in a single piece of software, the application should be broken down into small microservices. These microservices are highly modular, which allows them to live their own life and helps to accelerate time-to-market for your application. This is because your modules are not tightly coupled to other parts of your system and can be developed independently as business requirements change.

Applications built as microservices are easier to manage because each module is relatively simple, and changes can be made to modules without requiring changes to the underlying architecture of the entire application.

Operational simplicity

In addition to automatically scaling the various parts of your application, Kubernetes also simplifies day-to-day operations for you and your team. One of the most important is upgrading your application when it's time to do so. You don't want downtime and you want a way to easily restore if something unexpected happens. With Kubernetes, application updates can be done in a rolling fashion, that is, one component at a time. All you need to do is define the minimum number of resources that need to be available at any time to serve your users, and the maximum number of resources that can be unavailable due to the upgrade. You can always roll back to the previous version if something unexpected happens.

Another way to simplify your upgrade is to create a new version of your application with containers in production, alongside the previous version. You can then scale up the new version while scaling down the older version. Since Kubernetes containers are so lightweight and fast to create, this is a very safe way to get a new version of your applications in production.

Kubernetes also offers fault-tolerance and auto-healing capabilities by default. If something doesn't work, your Kubernetes orchestrator can detect it and act immediately to fix the problem, all without affecting the users.

Open source

As an open source platform, Kubernetes keeps you free from lock-in to specific vendors. With Kubernetes, you can easily move applications across multiple cloud environments. At Binero, we love freedom of choice and open source software is definitely part of that!

DevOps with Kubernetes

Focus on development and enjoy an automated infrastructure. Standardization of workflows, support for multiple environments and working methods according to CI/CD.

With a simple interface, you get started quickly. There are also pre-installed and configured frameworks in the container platform. Choose programming languages, test new ideas at any time, and control your own development environment. Then deploy the code independent of underlying infrastructure.

Set up a pipeline that automatically builds and tests your application when code changes. Perform code quality tests and regression tests to increase the quality of the application, without additional manual work.
