Computing Anywhere, Anytime: The Magic of Containerization and Microservices
Globally, businesses across industry verticals are focused on enhancing their business services reliability, accelerate innovation at lower TCO, provide customer experience with greater application dependency, and increase their developer-and-operations velocity. However, many of these businesses probably do not know or not completely aware of how it can be achieved. Infrastructure and application modernization are the key factors which could deliver the potential benefits such as consistent deployments, standardization of the environment, achieve control and compliance, allow businesses to bring new products/services to market faster. Cloud-native approach enables rapid application development, integrates with the CI/CD tooling to speed up the build-to-deploy lifecycle.
93% of Enterprises witnessed at least 1 security incident in their Kubernetes environments in last 12 months
31% of backend developers globally use Kubernetes
5.6 million developers globally use Kubernetes

Achieve end-to-end automation of enterprise application lifecycles unlocking greater performance agility, architectural flexibility, innovative outcomes, and uninterrupted workow continuity. Transform and transfer enterprise IT computing needs and asset functionalities to anywhere, anytime.
A Glimpse: How the Industry is Modernizing on GKE
Kubernetes acts as a middleware
It places between the applications and the infrastructure. It enables the operators and developers to focus on managing the applications by abstracting the underlying virtual and physical resources
1400+ companies using this technology
More than 1400 contributors like Red Hat, Google and Microsoft are a part of this list. Recently, Alibaba and Amazon have also become a few of the biggest companies to use this technology
Easy way to scale the large workloads
You don’t need to worry about the performance issue or underlying infrastructure with it. To accomplish this, the nodes destroy, which then recreate whenever it’s necessary
Segment to enterprise data
Earlier it was considered to be the choice of web-scale companies, but just within the starting three years, it made it to the segment of enterprise data
Kubernetes itself contains an automatic load balancing system
Based on the services, Kubernetes itself contains an automatic load balancing system to balance the load. An ingress controller is also present that supports the balancing of load by DNS path and name
Users of Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE)
22% of users of Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) are small businesses (with less than 50 workers), 36% are medium-sized businesses, and 39% are large businesses (with more than 1000 employees).
The Precise Challenges that GKE Helps Enterprises Master
Going a Step Beyond: Intelligent Managed Google Kubernetes Services by Cloud4C
Cloud4C implements the CI/CD pipelines using Cloud Build to deploy the containers on target Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) cluster(s).
Cloud4C implements the SLO (Service Level Objectives) for the microservices architecture based applications that run on GKE and configures the SLO metrics to create Observability Dashboards.
Cloud4C monitors the health status of services using Google Cloud Monitoring metrics and platform as well as application log management with Cloud Logging.
Cloud4C implements binary authorization for trusted container deployment where the successful kritis-signer based signature validation results in deployment of containers on the GKE clusters
Cloud4C also creates a break-glass policy for handling exception of any Binary authorization blocked containers
Cloud4C configures the Anthos service mesh for GKE clusters to monitor, secure and control the traffic flow between the microservices that run on GKE clusters
Cloud4C implements MTLS certificate issuance at scale using the Mesh CA (Certificate Authority) and integrates the Identity-Aware Proxy (IAP) to access the microservices based on Google’s BeyondCorp principles of zero-trust model
Cloud4C implements standards and best practices, tooling, Service Level Indicators (SLI), set Service Level Objectives (SLO) and track the error budgets to mitigate risks for the microservices that run on GKE/Anthos clusters
