It’s only been a few years, and cloud-native practices are not offbeat anymore. As reliance on the cloud increases, so do the difficulties of managing complex cloud operations. The dramatic shift to cloud services has given birth to many functional verticals and their “uni-dimensional” products. And as more of these “best of breed” products proliferate, the silo problem gets magnified. This is where Spot by NetApp is delivering a comprehensive, unified CloudOps portfolio.

When organizations deploy clusters — in, for example, Dev or Production environments — they may have different objectives around cost and availability. Dev clusters usually can tolerate more interruptions, as they are not running live services, but the expectation is saving money at the expense of availability.

Very early in my career, a mentor taught me an extremely important lesson: “There is no substitute for talking to your customers.” No market research, focus groups, or surveys can take the place of getting face to face with your customers and having an honest conversation.

With frequent software changes for hundreds of services over multiple environments, even a small change made by a developer can generate an unexpected blast radius in production. The standard Kubernetes deployment strategy ignores this modern complexity layer. DevOps organizations that maintain complex solutions have already understood that it’s not scalable and costly to manage.

The thermostat for the first floor of my house is located right behind me in my home office. I probably walk by it a dozen times a day, but I only look at it if I am feeling cold or warm to check to see if the temperature is set to the correct value. In Massachusetts, hot and cold are seasonal but can vary a lot day to day so checking occurs more often than you would think.
