Modernization with Azure Kubernetes Services: 2-WK Proof of Concept

Rackspace

The AKS POC will help clarify costs and provide a framework to begin implementing automation, monitoring, and support capabilities necessary for a successful shift to cloud-native infrastructure.

Developers and IT tasked by the business to minimize cost and leverage capabilities inherent in the cloud often look to Kubernetes, the popular open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and managing applications via containerization.

While powerful and proven, deploying and managing containers can be daunting without the right skillsets and processes—organizational lack of confidence slows cloud migration, hampering innovation and efforts to reduce operational cost and complexity.

Early identification of gaps in skillsets and technologies helps to mitigate risks (in orchestrating a cloud migration across multiple departments and interdisciplinary teams) and to ensure efficient operations, application resiliency, and highly secure access to intelligent data. Having clarification as to costs and a framework to begin with helps accelerate implementing automation, monitoring, and support capabilities necessary to shift to a supportive cloud-native infrastructure.

Faster implementation of cost-effective, automated security, management and policy adherence provided in Azure Kubernetes Services lets IT and developers to more effectively build innovative solutions to speed time to market and grow the business.
