Move to the Hybrid Cloud with Diamanti’s Kubernetes Platform
Since its inception in 2015, Kubernetes (or K8s) has enabled visionaries across industries to innovate. This portable, open-source orchestrator provides a turnkey solution to containerized application deployment, scaling, and management across multiple clusters. By grounding their digital transformations in K8s, industry leaders have been able to supercharge organizational flexibility and savings.
Many innovators have realized that digital transformation is most effective when it occurs on the hybrid cloud. This strategy takes advantage of the benefits of multiple computing environments—namely private and public clouds—to deliver increased connectivity, orchestration, and productivity. By combining the perks of an organization’s own infrastructure, or private cloud, with those of third parties (such as AWS, Azure, or Google), hybrid cloud deployments rooted in K8s deliver operational consistency and accelerate growth. This is in large part thanks to Kubernetes’ ability to seamlessly orchestrate both containerized and legacy VM applications, thus permitting access and efficiency from any location or hardware.
This route to digital transformation is not without its own challenges, however: transitioning to the hybrid cloud with Kubernetes can be a cumbersome and opaque process, and its complexity and steep learning curve often complicate successful implementation. Enter Diamanti: for industries as wide-ranging as retail, telecom, transportation, healthcare, finance, and manufacturing, Diamanti’s platform streamlines the hybrid K8s experience by boosting speed and reliability, facilitating and securing data access, and in turn maximizing savings.
Boost speed and reliability on the hybrid cloud
Migrating to the hybrid cloud unleashes the agility and reliability Kubernetes offers. To remain competitive, organizations must be able to quickly scale up and respond to market pressures and changes. By optimizing IT performance, a hybrid-cloud approach fast-tracks time to market and affords an ongoing competitive edge. This disentangles organizations from the limitations of private cloud infrastructures and enables them to adapt their operational workflow and output to fluctuations in demand.
When equipped with K8s, a hybrid approach also secures operational continuity at lightning-fast speeds. For one, leaders can capitalize on a hybrid deployment to regulate usage. In the retail space, for instance, a business might choose to scale-up its application use for Black Friday and Cyber Monday—a hybrid cloud makes it possible to automate container and VM deployment to satisfy these needs.
Similarly, in the event of an IT failure or disaster, hybrid clouds shore up continuity by enabling movement between public and private infrastructures. This fluidity can decrease internal downtime and customer-facing interruptions.
But making a digital transformation that harnesses these advantages is not straightforward. Cloud environments are complex, and dividing functionality across multiple clouds can impair visibility. Without a clear organizational picture, leaders might miss out on opportunities for growth.
This is where Diamanti’s platform comes in. With it, maximizing the potential of Kubernetes has never been easier; by providing a bird’s-eye view of operations and centralizing K8s orchestration, Diamanti’s platform reduces the complexity of container-based workloads and effectively unbridles the full potential of the hybrid cloud. This means you get the speed, flexibility, and reliability of the hybrid cloud — without the headaches and high costs of implementation.
Keep data secure and make it actionable on the hybrid cloud with Kubernetes
Diamanti also allows organizations to make the most of the data generated by and stored on the hybrid cloud. Critically, the company’s K8s platform simplifies access to information by effortlessly networking on-site (or private) and public clouds. This centralized platform supports users by enabling them to bypass issues arising from application-specific configurations or differing authentication and authorization requirements.
Diamanti helps organizations stay nimble by granting access to data from any location or device. Imagine that an automobile manufacturer needs to connect its on-premise production team with a design coordinator working remotely in another country. With Diamanti’s platform, these distributed stakeholders have secure, on-demand access to the same data, and can make choices that ensure real-time productivity and future growth.
All of this data is kept safe by Diamanti’s approach to Kubernetes orchestration. Thanks to the platform’s automated solutions to migration, back-up, and restoration, organizations can rest assured that their data is always secure. For example, in the healthcare space—where organizations are increasingly adopting the hybrid model in response to COVID-19—this allows patients’ protected/personal health information to remain protected and actionable, regardless of whether the patient receives care at the bedside or remotely.
With Diamanti’s Kubernetes lifecycle management platform, organizations can manage risk and share data across distributed workplaces and multiple clouds to power post-COVID, digitally competitive workforces.
Maximize the value of the cloud with Diamanti’s Kubernetes platform
While moving to the hybrid cloud might seem costly, a smart deployment can lead to significant savings.
Retailers can turn to Diamanti’s K8s platform to automate application usage to respond to demand, thus reducing computing resources and subscription costs. In the realm of manufacturing, the platform can support efforts to network operations and reduce time to market. Elsewhere, it can empower healthcare workers to deliver the highest quality care to every patient.
For organizations of all kinds, a cloud-smart strategy can pave the way to other opportunities for growth, be it by dramatically cutting hardware expenses or by giving time back to personnel through task automation.
