SUSE Rancher removes roadblocks to transformation
C-suite leaders across all industries are under increasing pressure to transform and innovate. Yet the journey toward unlocking new agility and efficiency, while meeting new customer demands, is often hampered by technology and process roadblocks.
We know the short-term implications of transformation can be initially overwhelming for many technology teams. Stakeholders expect any transformation to quickly deliver value and minimise disruption.
However, DevOps teams are now tasked with attempting to unify their IT operations with Kubernetes, the widely-regarded new operating system for cloud-native development. With Gartner predicting that more than 75% of global organisations will run containerised applications in production this year, Kubernetes offers higher reliability on any infrastructure and enables DevOps teams to streamline processes.
While there are many benefits of leveraging Kubernetes and containers, users face a unique set of challenges:
- Lack of real-time visibility over multiple Kubernetes clusters.
- Inconsistent security policies that create enforcement and compliance risks.
- Increased overheads for independently managing this growing ecosystem.
To combat these challenges and meet the ongoing demands set by internal stakeholders (and even shareholders), our customers and the community turn to SUSE’s Kubernetes management solution, SUSE Rancher.
