Advanced Kubernetes [Refcard Update]
Kubernetes is a distributed cluster technology that manages container-based systems in a declarative manner using an API. There are currently many learning resources to get started with the fundamentals of Kubernetes, but there is less information on how to manage Kubernetes infrastructure on an ongoing basis. This Refcard aims to deliver quick, accessible information for operators using any Kubernetes product.
Managing Kubernetes: From a Small Fleet to a Navy of Clusters
To keep pace with the ever-changing digital landscape, organizations are adopting open source and cloud native technologies at an incredible pace. But as the number of clusters and workloads grow, it can become increasingly difficult to know where clusters exist and how they are performing. And if multiple teams are provisioning and using clusters with different policies, roles, and configurations, you might as well jump ship. Because before you know it, you’ll begin to experience cluster sprawl, and your multi-cluster operations will potentially capsize before you reach shore. So how do you effectively monitor and manage disparate clusters and contain the chaos of sprawl?
In this eBook, you’ll learn:
- The causes and consequences of cluster sprawl
- How to build or evolve your cluster governance policies
- How D2iQ’s Kommander can deliver centralized governance and contain sprawl
Forrester Report: Leveraging Production Kubernetes for Digital Transformation in the Enterprise

In this report, Forrester assesses emerging multi-cloud container development platform providers, and identifies the top vendors in the market.
The Forrester Wave™ report states that D2iQ “focuses on simplifying open source cloud-native operations.” The D2iQ Kubernetes Platform provides you with a differentiated approach and unique set of enterprise grade technologies and expert services, training, and support offerings to ensure Day 2 operational success.
Six Steps to Comprehensive Container Security
An application or service that you develop once to run in multiple clouds has a clear advantage over one that is bound to a single OS or runtime environment. Container technology makes it possible, but container security vulnerabilities are beginning to surface. We describe 6 steps you can take to ensure that container security doesn’t become a DevOps roadblock.
Multi-Cluster Management: Reduce Overhead and Redundant Efforts
Kubernetes gives organizations the ability to run containerized applications at scale across different cloud infrastructures and distributions. What they haven’t fully realized is how to centrally manage a wide expanse of organizational clusters in a compliant and reliable way. How do you deliver governance and standardization across disparate Kubernetes clusters across the organization? And how do you do it in a way that doesn’t stifle innovation?
In this cheat sheet, we’ll go over the challenges that organizations face today as they adopt and deploy new technologies. We’ll also provide a framework on how to evolve your existing governance model so you can reduce operational overhead and redundant efforts in cross-cluster lifecycle management.
Kubernetes and CI/CD: Containerization of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery
There were few initial indications that Kubernetes would become the technology standard for container orchestration that it is today. As an open-source product backed by Google’s resources and community, Kubernetes entered the market as an easily accessible and authoritative tool. The rise of Kubernetes came at a fortuitous time for organizations grappling with DevOps transformations and enterprise-wide CI/CD optimization, and the once-groundbreaking tool is now commonplace across the CI/CD lifecycle.
In light of the prominence and growing necessity of Kubernetes in any discussion of CI/CD processes, we examine the present and future state of both Kubernetes and CI/CD individually and together as cooperative and opposing entities.
