In my last post, we explored reasons why we would want to use the container orchestration tool kubernetes to manage deployment of our applications. Of the numerous choices of tools available to deploy Kubernetes, we’ve chosen kops because it works really well with Amazon Web Service (AWS).
For little over a year now, zvelo has been transitioning our infrastructure to the Kubernetes Platform. Developed by Google, Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Using Kubernetes allows us extreme flexibility with our applications, both horizontally and vertically.
