Kubernetes has become the de facto target for deploying microservices, to the extent that many enterprises are considering it in their software delivery strategies. While organizations are embracing the principle of Kubernetes, far fewer deploy it at scale. Only 10% of enterprise respondents to GigaOm research, carried out earlier this year, have made use of the platform.
In these still early days, and as technology decision makers look to build upon successful pilots or smaller deployments, the question becomes: what comes next? Planning deployments firm-wide can be daunting, as there is more to get right and, potentially, go wrong. The next steps will depend on where an organization is on its journey, the context, and the business goals as a whole.
In this report, we consider how to scale up Kubernetes, and ensure success, both now and in the years to come.
