About this talk

Thinking of building your own Kubernetes platform as part of your cloud strategy? How will you manage upgrades, third-party integrations, security, and uptime? Join us as we discuss how an application platform may be a better use of your resources than managing Kubernetes clusters. Do-it-yourself (DIY) Kubernetes deployments are often seen as panaceas for migrating applications to a cloud environment and building cloud-native applications. Clusters can be spun up in public cloud environments for minimal financial cost. However, you may still need many additional services to make your custom Kubernetes platform usable by your product teams—security, logging, continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), registries, build tools, and developer self-service catalogs at a minimum. Not to mention the challenges around maintaining the platform when it comes to upgrades, third party integrations, uptime, and technical debt. In this webinar, hear from our experts about the challenges in going the DIY Kubernetes route and why you should consider a hosted turnkey application platform instead. You’ll learn how to redirect your focus to delivering value to business stakeholders and end customers instead of operating a Kubernetes cluster. Join us to learn how Red Hat® Cloud Services can help speed up time to value and increase your innovation potential. In this session, we’ll help you understand when you should (and should not) use Kubernetes. Topics include: -The difference between Kubernetes and an application platform -Key challenges involved with a DIY Kubernetes platform. -Calculating the total cost of ownership. Attend the session live for your opportunity to ask questions to our fantastic speakers.
