According to Juergen Sussner, a cloud platform architect at German IT service provider DATEV, Kubernetes has the potential to be a game-changer for how teams like his do their jobs.
“Before we had the standardization layer, we had a lot of things to consider when putting new software in the data center," he says, "like about network topology, sizing of VMs, how to place the VM into the network, firewalling, and all this stuff. And nowadays you can say, ‘Does your product run on Kubernetes, do you have a Helm chart for the plan deployment?’ for example. If yes, we're fine. If no, maybe we choose another one.”
This is a very large org. benefit: making a decision on the architecture to use, instead of yet another platform inside the enterprise.
