Reduce Complexity with Production-Grade Kubernetes. We explain how production-grade Kubernetes solves the challenges of deploying containerized microservices-based apps. In addition to a Kubernetes infrastructure you need a scalable Ingress controller, WAF, and service mesh.
2020 was a year that few of us will ever forget. The abrupt shuttering of schools, businesses, and public services left us suddenly isolated from our communities and thrown into uncertainty about our safety and financial stability. Now imagine for a moment that this had happened in 2000, or even 2010. What would be different? Technology. Without the high‑quality digital services that we take for granted – healthcare, streaming video, remote collaboration tools – a pandemic would be a very different experience. What made the technology of 2020 so different from past decades? Containers and microservices.
Microservices architectures – which generally make use of containers and Kubernetes – fuel business growth and innovation by reducing time to market for digital experiences. Whether alongside traditional architectures or as a standalone, these modern app technologies enable superior scalability and flexibility, faster deployments, and even cost savings.
Prior to 2020, we found that most of our customers had already started adopting microservices as part of their digital transformation strategy, but the pandemic truly accelerated app modernization. Our 2020 survey of NGINX users found that 60% of respondents are using microservices in production, up from 40% in 2019, and containers are more than twice as popular as other modern app technologies.
Our original Kubernetes tool list was so popular that we've curated another great list of tools to help you improve your functionality with the platform.
In this article, take a look at the service mesh in the microservices world. The software industry has come a long journey and throughout this journey, Software Architecture has evolved a lot. Starting with 1-tier (Single-node), 2-tier (Client/ Server), 3-tier, and Distributed are some of the Software Architectural patterns we saw in this journey.
For teams to monitor, support, and to maintain these services is becoming a challenge so most enterprises have invested in some kind of microservices management tool.
We announce eight solutions that unleash developer speed without sacrificing the control infrastructure teams require. Get the details on NGINX Controller, App Protect, Ingress Controller, Service Mesh, and Analytics Cloud Service; F5 DNS Cloud Services; and Red Hat integrations.
Just as tech is revised and upgraded, so too should a tool comparison be. Service meshes act as the substrate to connect microservices, find the one for you.
