Cloud and cluster sprawl is a problem affecting numerous organizations, undermining the efforts that led to cloud-native Kubernetes deployments and resulting in wasted resources, inefficient operations, and poor return on investment. The best way to bring cloud and cluster sprawl under control is through centralized multi-cloud and multi-cluster fleet management. There are a number of reasons why the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP) provides unmatched fleet management capabilities.

One of the biggest issues related to large-scale cloud deployments is overspending. It’s no surprise that as organizations scale their cloud-native Kubernetes environments, the associated costs rise along with that growth. However, there is a disconnect between the rising expenses and how well businesses can accurately and effectively monitor and control costs in the cloud, across multiple clouds and in hybrid cloud environments.

Developers and security experts are now tasked with bolstering, extending, and adjusting cloud and Kubernetes security to protect against cyberattacks that are ever more complex, volatile, and frequent. To foil attacks and create a secure foundation for applications and infrastructure from the beginning, DevSecOps (Development, Security, and Operations) has become the trending development and operations practice. In the DevSecOps model, security becomes a shared responsibility.

Cyber security has become a top priority across all industry sectors, public and private. Securing a Kubernetes environment presents new challenges to organizations that are transitioning from traditional IT infrastructures to container management solutions in the cloud. As D2iQ VP of Product Management Dan Ciruli points out in “ Air-gapped Advantages in a Non-Air-gapped World,” surveys show a large percentage of Kubernetes environments are vulnerable to attack, as high as 87%.

If your organization is using multiple containers to run apps, website front ends, or other microservices, then managing them all can start to get very tricky. As one of the fastest growing projects in open-source history, Kubernetes (or K8s) provides a highly effective way of managing microservices. Once you install Kubernetes, it handles operations, infrastructure and service health monitoring, meaning you can focus more on development, and less on the underlying tech.

This video describes how to use the D2iQ Kubernetes Platform (DKP) to manage an existing CNCF-conformant cluster created with Rancher Kubernetes Engine (RKE or RKE2). Getting to Kubernetes is a first step. Getting Kubernetes into production is quite another! You've got a few clusters in place already, and they may even be in production, but what you need now is some way to manage them all from the same place. DKP can help! You can use DKP to manage existing clusters as well as new clusters you create with DKP itself.

Learn best practices and tools required to design and build an end-to-end machine learning platform.
Developers often struggle when first encountering the cloud. Learning about distributed systems, becoming familiar with technologies such as containers and functions, and knowing how to put everything together can be daunting. With this practical guide, you'll get up to speed on patterns for building cloud native applications and best practices for common tasks such as messaging, eventing, and DevOps. Authors Boris Scholl, Trent Swanson, and Peter Jausovec describe the architectural building blocks for a modern cloud native application. You'll learn how to use microservices, containers, serverless computing, storage types, portability, and functions.
Kubernetes is a distributed cluster technology that manages container-based systems in a declarative manner using an API. There are currently many learning resources to get started with the fundamentals of Kubernetes, but there is less information on how to manage Kubernetes infrastructure on an ongoing basis.

To keep pace with the ever-changing digital landscape, organizations are adopting open source and cloud native technologies at an incredible pace. But as the number of clusters and workloads grow, it can become increasingly difficult to know where clusters exist and how they are performing. And if multiple teams are provisioning and using clusters with different policies, roles, and configurations, you might as well jump ship. Because before you know it, you'll begin to experience cluster sprawl, and your multi-cluster operations will potentially capsize before you reach shore.
