Enterprises have a pressing need to modernize
According to a recent Forrester report, enterprises saved upto 82% while migrating from AWS instances to containerized workloads
Gartner expects that by 2022, over 75% of organizations worldwide will run their containerized applications in production.
In a recent Kubernetes survey run by Canonical, 47% of respondents have a need to integrate their legacy apps with cloud services
Getting VMs into a container orchestration platform is just half the battle. Once your VM is inside a Kubernetes pod, how does it communicate with other Pods in and out of the cluster. Avesha VMKubed offers the complete solution starting from VMs to easy application networking between VMs & other containers. Watch this.
Avesha VMKubed – Features & Architecture
Benefits of being in Kubernetes orchestration
- Bin packing – fit right VM workloads into the right compute
- Auto scaling – ability to spin up VM workloads on demand
- Reduced Infrastructure costs & footprint costs
Single management & observability platform for VMs & Kubernetes
Multi-cloud & on-prem support
Workload segmentation based on priority
Simplified and secure networking across clusters for both http and non-http traffic in an East-West connectivity without needing to traverse firewalls
How does it work?
Here are the steps used by Avesha VMKubed to modernize your VMs and get them on a Kubernetes platform ready to communicate with other microservices
Prepare your VMs to be moved to Kubernetes/Kubevirt orchestration. Kubevirt supports several VM image formats (Kubevirt Image Formats) and others can be translated into those formats.
Define the KubeVirt .yaml files to specify to Kubernetes how it should manage your VM-based services.
