Kubernetes is the modern tool of choice for agile application development and operations, or DevOps.  But rolling out clusters, managing the application landscapes, and keeping the environment compliant can be daunting.

  • Just knowing how to get started is a huge barrier to cloud native modernization.
  • Implementation takes a lot of time and knowledge.
  • Doing it wrong can result in unexpected delays and costs.
  • And Day-2 operations present new and unfamiliar challenges.
