Kubernetes In The Real World: using an ADC to reduce the complexity of Kubernetes adoption

Kubernetes is a powerful container orchestration technology that continues to grow in popularity with enterprise users. A recent survey conducted in 2019 by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation – the organization that governs Kubernetes development – reports that 78% of the respondents were using Kubernetes in production, compared with only 58% in 2018. This is real attention-getting growth. Obviously, with these sorts of numbers, more companies are going to jump on the bandwagon.

I'm using Envoy and Istio. Why do I need an ADC?

Key Takeaways

  • Using manual processes to monitor and control modern applications running at web-scale is an outdated approach to systems management.
  • Tools such as Envoy and Istio, which are designed to operate in modern digital infrastructures that are dynamic and ephemeral, provide many of the service management features that are needed to support applications that run in a cloud environment, but they have limits that need to be addressed.
  • Application Delivery Controllers provide a way to unify managing applications across multiple environments while also filling in the gaps left behind by routing controllers and service mesh technologies.
  • Snapt Nova takes ADC functionality to the next level by providing Availability, Security, Performance and Visibility, as well as centralized control enabling ADC instantiation, grouping, scaling and automation.
