Kubernetes Consulting benefits

Kubernetes may have a steep learning curve, but we learned from each and every project we had. Here is what you get from learning from us

Top-notch technologies

Top-notch technologies

    The majority of all the newest technologies are built with containerization and Kubernetes in mind. It is the core of the CNCF, which oversees and maintains a huge variety of services, plugins, and tools for everything one might think of. https://landscape.cncf.io/
Security

Security

    Kubernetes is a group of isolated APIs with granular access management policies, traffic control, and process isolation, which perfectly complies with all the main standards - SOC2, ISO27001, FedRAMP, HIPAA, and others
Deployment

Deployment

    Kubernetes natively supports advanced deployment approaches like blue/green, canary deployments. Zero-downtime deployments in just a few hours
Scaling

Scaling

    Horizontal and vertical auto-scaling, integration with AWS autoscaling, Azure Scale sets, and other cloud solutions
Cloud integration

Cloud integration

    No need to manage k8s clusters all by yourself. AWS, GCP, Azure, and other cloud providers provide different managed solutions up to a complete serverless setup
Development velocity

Development velocity

    Releases involving Kubernetes tend to be 3-5 times faster than the ones built for classic systems

How our team can help you to work with Kubernetes?

More than 80% of projects we had at Alpacked involved Kubernetes. Our expertise is a lot more than simple creation of deployments, services and ingresses for applications. Throughout the last years we’ve been trying to be on the cutting edge of technologies and approaches that many IT experts use thanks to rapid growth of this technology. 

There can be many reasons why you want to consult with us:

  • Starting a new project and evaluating the benefits of using Kubernetes
  • You’ve heard a lot about Kubernetes from your peers or colleagues and want to hear professional opinion about it
  • You already have Kubernetes running but you want to review how good it’s been configured and how to improve it
  • You want to make scaling of your application work better
  • You want to add more security and reliability to your Kubernetes setup

Here is how we approach any project when we start the work:

Discovery 

We make an intro call with you or your team and discuss the main values you are looking to get from working with us

Application architecture review

We review how your application is architected, how do you handle configurations, whether you use healthcheks, is it stateless or stateful

Scaling review

Finding scaling bottlenecks in your application can be crucial item if you want to handle loads above average and allow your end users not to worry about speed of the app they are using

Security audit

Kubernetes security should be treated carefully, we have experience working with companies which required HIPAA, FedRamp and ISO 27001 compliances

Monitoring overview

As a system Kubernetes can handle a lot of operational stuff for your application. Bad overview of your system can lead to big problems in performance and fault tolerance. Alpacked can help to build proper monitoring solution for your architecture and find issues before your end users.

Staff knowledge sharing

Learning curve can be quite steep for Kubernetes and it is very important to make sure that your dev team knows how to work with this tool and we 

Roadmap

After all the steps above we build the plan that we think will be the best for your goals we established in the discovery phase. We believe it is important that you understand how much time and effort it will take to achieve what you want
