Many Enterprises have existed long before Public cloud and Virtual Machines were a reality. They are heavily invested in their own data centers running on physical machines. They use traditional technologies to deploy software using Puppet or Ansible and they daydream about modern microservices architecture and envy the next blog post coming out of Google’s and Facebooks of the world. With Kubernetes, this has changed. We show to those enterprises, that its possible to run your software in the same infrastructure that was once only accessible to a select few companies. We also show , in the absence of VM’s and managed cloud offerings on bare metal it's still possible to manage Kubernetes on physical hardware and with a little investment in processes and monitoring, you can run a billion dollar empire and modernize your software to microservice architecture and follow modern cloud native processes like CI/CD and 12 factor app.
