Container platform for the Enterprise

The DevOps way

About the Book

This book is about creating an enterprise-ready container platform based on Kubernetes. Setting up Kubernetes, or any container platform in an enterprise, is much more than just a technical implementation. It is also a **way of working** throughout the organization. It involves the way operations (OPS) are handled, how development (DEV) is done, and how the organization handles its processes. It might sound strange that a tool can force these changes. In reality, Kubernetes doesn't really compel the changes, but unless the organization adopts this new way of working with containers, it becomes just another useless tool.

The container community is very large and active. There are many books, blogs, and courses, most of which describe a solution for one or two problems. This is very helpful, but implementing the container platform is more than fixing a couple of implementation problems. This book offers insights into what needs to be done to successfully introduce a container platform into an enterprise.

Every company, big or small, works within a certain context. This context affects how the implementation is done or which tool is used, but the reason for choosing a certain type of solution or using a particular tool or option are more or less the same in every context. This book will give you insights into what the options are, their benefits and drawbacks, the decision-making process, and how to implement your decision. Most importantly, it will show you the process to use when introducing a container platform into an enterprise.
