Build vs. Buy: Choosing the Right Kubernetes Infrastructure

Kubernetes adoption is accelerating rapidly, yet existing IT infrastructure that has been optimized over a period of many years for legacy business applications may not efficiently support containers and cloud-native applications. As your organization navigates the transition from virtualization, you’ll need an infrastructure that addresses the unique needs of Kubernetes, and you’ll also want to carefully assess whether you will buy or build your infrastructure to support Kubernetes.

Download this white paper to uncover some of the things you’ll want to consider before making a decision on your future distributed application platform. In this white paper, you’ll learn the following:

  • The difference between running containers on bare metal versus in virtual machines
  • The requirements around storage and networking for a production Kubernetes environment
  • The differences between first and second generation hyperconverged architecture
  • The commonly missed items when considering a DIY approach to Kubernetes (eg. integration testing, upgrades/patches, and support)
