How big companies are using Kubernetes
Kubernetes’ increased adoption is showcased by a number of influential companies which have integrated the technology into their services. Let us take a look at how some of the biggest companies of our time are successfully using Kubernetes. The Docker adoption is still growing exponentially, more and more companies have started using it in Production.
It is important to use an orchestration platform to scale & manage your containers. Imagine a situation where you have been using Docker for a little while, and have deployed on a few different servers. Your application starts getting massive traffic, and you need to scale up fast, how will you go from 3 servers to 40 servers that you may require?
And how will you decide which container should go where? How would you monitor all these containers and make sure they are restarted if they exit? Was that easy?
No ways. However, they had to do it for the smooth business operations going further. One of their Engineering leaders said, “As we onboarded more and more services to Kubernetes, we found ourselves running a DNS service that was answering 250,000 requests per second.”
Fantastic culture, Tinder’s entire engineering organization now has knowledge and experience on how to containerize and deploy their applications on Kubernetes.
