Kubernetes is quickly becoming a commodity. Setting up a highly available cluster? Easy. Running large applications in a fault-tolerant manner on top? No problem. As long as you fit the ideal mold. But what if your production environment is a closed internal network? Or it’s behind the Chinese firewall? What if you don’t host your own applications but instead deliver your software to clients? Can you still leverage Kubernetes in such cases? As adoption of Kubernetes continues to grow, we see more use cases that don’t fit the traditional model. Ian Crosby discusses three case studies of organizations he’s recently worked with, looking particularly at the specific challenges he encountered and the solutions (or workarounds) he implemented.
