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.

Snapt Nova – Centrally Managed, Cloud Native Application Delivery. Nova is a Kubernetes native ADC platform for DevOps, Developers and Infrastructure IT at companies embracing digital transformation and migrating workloads from legacy load balancers to a more modern app delivery fabric. But what’s using this like? How do I sign up? What are my first setups? Read on to find out.
Key Takeaways Using manual processes to monitor and control modern applications running at web-scale is an outdated approach to systems management.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. Snapt Nova takes ADC functionality to the next level by providing Availability, Security, Performance and Visibility, as well as centralized control enabling ADC instantiation, grouping, scaling and automation.

In this episode of Running in Production, Dave Blakey goes over how their load balancing service (Nova) handles 33,000+ events per second across a 100+ server Kubernetes cluster that runs on both AWS and DigitalOcean. There’s a sprinkle of Serverless thrown in too. Your browser does not support the audio element.
