For startups and DevOps teams running small projects, setting up load balancing is on the checklist of things to prepare for scale. If your primary compute environment is Amazon Web Services, then the fastest and easiest option is to provision Amazon’s basic Elastic Load Balancer (ELB).
DevOps teams and SRES are increasingly using cloud native systems to visualize and monitor distributed, container-based application delivery controllers (ADCs) across multiple clouds and hybrid infrastructure.
Kubernetes is a powerful container orchestration technology that continues to grow in popularity with enterprise users. A recent survey conducted in 2019 by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation – the organization that governs Kubernetes development – reports that 78% of the respondents were using Kubernetes in production, compared with only 58% in 2018. This is real attention-getting growth. Obviously, with these sorts of numbers, more companies are going to jump on the bandwagon.
Key Takeaways Using manual processes to monitor and control modern applications running at web-scale is an outdated approach to systems management. Tools such as Envoy and Istio, which are designed to operate in modern digital infrastructures that are dynamic and ephemeral, provide many of the service management features that are needed to support applications that run in a cloud environment, but they have limits that need to be addressed. Application Delivery Controllers provide a way to unify managing applications across multiple environments while also filling in the gaps left behind by routing controllers and service mesh technologies.
