Kubernetes and Claranet

Automate, deploy, scale and manage containerised applications

We understand the pressure to do more and faster is intense. You need to be putting new features in the hands of your customers earlier, learning and continually improving the customer experience. The new generation of data-intensive dynamic applications and services require finely-tuned infrastructure.

Why Kubernetes?

  • Deploy your applications quickly
  • Scale your applications on the fly
  • Roll out new features seamlessly
  • Limit hardware usage to required resources only.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerised applications so that new ideas can quickly get developed, packaged, and shipped. It groups containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management. In other words, you can cluster together groups of hosts running Linux containers, and Kubernetes helps you easily and efficiently manage those clusters. These clusters can span hosts across public, private, or hybrid clouds.

What are Containers?

Containers are lightweight, portable, virtualised software defined environment. Containers wrap everything in a file system that contains everything needed to run: code, runtime, system tools, system library – anything that can be installed on a server.
