It’s no secret that using DevOps with cloud projects accelerates development time and lowers costs for development, testing, deployment and operations. But the journey to DevOps doesn’t always start with an infrastructure deployment.
For Westlake, Ohio-based Budget Dumpster, it started a need for online location-based services. The growing national dumpster rental company deployed Maps API to improve customer experience on its website and simplify the sales and customer service process.
Success with this solution drove Budget Dumpster to deploy Google Cloud Platform.
With two passionate developers already on board, Budget Dumpster worked with Onix to leverage the flexibility of Kubernetes to take its internal DevOps capabilities to the next level. It’s been a major success.
Kubernetes, an open-source, container-orchestration platform, allows large numbers of containers to work together to create complex applications and services. At the same time, it reduces operational costs and time by providing such crucial services as networking, storage and a system-health watchdog. Those are just a few of the benefits of DevOps.
Kubernetes Can Benefit Companies of All Sizes
While it sounds complex and something for only the largest organizations, it’s not. Using Kubernetes, you can...
- Run many containers across different nodes (machines).
- Scale up or down by adding or removing cluster nodes.
- Maintain consistent storage and load distribution.
- Ensure self-healing of services and pods in many failure states.
- Create various deployment strategies, including canary and blue/green.
